I like Canadiens. It is very classy, in my opinion. It is far better than Ducks, Avalanche, Penguins, or Wild. Those have to be some of the worst names in all of North American pro sports.


Yeah, it's better than the ones you mentioned, but I agree with The Nephilim that the Canadiens, as well as the Canucks, aren't the most creative names ever. I can't imagine naming a team the Americans...it'd be like, well yeah, we kind of got that already from the fact that they play in an American city... I'm used to both now, though, and they don't bother me like the friggin' Wild or Avalanche or any of the non-count noun teams do (although none of them are quite as lame as the Miami Heat or the Utah Jazz, in my opinion).

We used to have a minor league (can't remember what league) hockey team called the San Diego Gulls...add that one to the list of "lame bird names" along with the Ducks and Penguins. That's not quite as lame as the Long Beach Ice Dogs, though...

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

How about the old UHL team the Port Huron Flags... As one person put it "Why would anyone pick a name where you can remove one letter and it becomes a slur?!?!?!"
"Cry 'Havoc' and let slip Tomas Holmstrom!!!"

I guess Transylvania would have to think twice before naming a team the Counts.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James
