    Wrong. I specifically recall the Gophers winning at least one DQ Cup.

    Seattle has one of the greatest hockey nicknames of all time, with a strong history. Just buy the rights and use it. It's perfect.

    I can understand not wanting to buy out the history of the WHL team, and Totem seems to be their way of having the Thunderbird logo without the name or rights.

    Agree that Kraken is terrible.

    Firebirds is the best alternative to T-birds, and can have a similar logo.

    I really want a true Green and Gold team back in the NHL. And I want a Pacific Northwest themed logo like the WHL T-Birds and UAA Seawolves. Hopefully this is it.

    Green and blue fits the Mariners, Seahawks, and Sounders theme, too.

    My Long Game is to bring the Winterhawks into the league someday too, which is one reason I wish the T-birds name would stay. Another is It's Just Frickin' Awesome.

    The other choice for a PNW division is:

    Portland Rose Buds
    Seattle Metropolitans
    Vancouver Canucks
    Victoria Millionaires

    All four have been in Stanley Cup finals in their history.

    Obviously none of this really matters until we revive the Rat Portage Thistles.

    Totems was the name for the minor league team that played in the 50’s and 60’s so there’s history attached to it as well.

    AFAIK the Thunderbirds have no intention of moving, they play in Kent anyway, and so they don’t want to give up their name.

    Makes sense. Pleny of markets support both junior/minor hockey and the N. Particularly not a problem for the CHL since the whole ambiance is different. It's midway between pro and college.

    I thought The Plan was to build out KeyArena? Or is it that the TBirds moved since I was out there (15 years ago, now, sheesh)?

    Are you psyched to have the N coming to town or do you have qualms? Where in the city do you actually live, right downtown? Dr. Mrs. lived over by UW when she was up there.

    I honestly forgot just how long his tenure has been. Won the cup as a call-up and black ace. And a total of 662 NHL games (and potentially more).

    Wings win in Montreal... but lose pretty much everywhere else in Canada.

    If you're close to Gates then you're close to cocaine.
