Seattle could work out well, those west-coast teams have actually succeeded. It's better than Phoenix because it isn't a bunch of older transplants that already have their own teams to root for. That's half the problem with the Panthers. And why Vegas probably wouldn't work out so well.

Try to keep Phoenix out west, then move the next team to QC, whether it's NYI, NJ, Florida, Nashville


Kansas City might have the fan base, but not enough corporate support. Although I've been pleasantly surprised how many small local companies are supporting Kansas City's minor league team (Missouri Mavericks of the CHL); but the only thing KC has are small, local companies. That's why Seattle should look so good. There's a bevy of Fortune 500 companies with headquarters in the Seattle area.

Seattle Volcanos.

They both can move there, and I'm pretty sure they both want to.

In that case, I guess we should tell Winnipeg that they'll never be as good of a hockey market as Atlanta is. :pop:

Let's talk in 10 years and see how well WPG is doing.
I'm glad that they are there, but we'll see...

It means "Northmen" or "Northerners". They chose the name because they were one of the northernmost teams in professional sports in North America.

If the 'yotes move East next season can they just swap divisions with the Jets?

It's a great name, but I hope the Coyotes don't leave Phoenix or the US. It's bad for US hockey. That said, if the Nordiques are resurrected, I hope they keep the same powder blue uniforms because they were attractive and unique. However, I expect they would go to black uniforms for marketing purposes.

Add some red to these sweaters and they're perfect imo:

^ I've seen those uni's before. They were going to those before they moved to Colorado. IF the Coyotes move up there, I hope they go to those with their old ones as a alternate.
