Naming the new Penguins division (w/poll)

Postby no name on Fri Jul 12, 2013 8:33 am

???

I personally would go with Patrick, i would go back to the Patrick, Smythe, Norris, Adams Division names.

But maybe it is time for a Change, Lemieux Gretzky, Orr Howe??

Some people suggested selling the rights. Pepsi, Geico, Microsoft divisions.

We could base it off of the Pierre McGuire model for leadership and passion...

I think all teams in the division should refer to it as the Penguins division.

Gaucho for the win! :lol:

They peed on their traditional names; why bring back now? I don't care what they are called.

Sell the naming rights. More revenue for the league = higher cap.

There was some chatter about selling off the naming rights. According to Eklund, right now it appears that the companies most likely to acquire these naming rights will be Geico, Molson, Honda and Super Beta Prostate.

How about the Herb Brooks divison? Only divison with all US based teams, name it after an American hockey icon.

If it helped to increase the yearly cap, I'd be down for selling off the rights.

Northeast, Atlantic, Central and Pacific make sense of it were not for FL and TB being lumped in with the NE.

I heard grumblings of Atlantic for the NE + FL, Central for the other East then midwest and Pacific for West.

I am really intrested in when the revisit the realignment and possibily add 2 expansion teams and relocate one or 2 to get to 32 team league with 4 confrences of 8 teams. If you add 2 more teams Toronto and Quebec would make realignment tough since you would have to move Det and Colombus back west. I would guess Colombus or Florida might relocate to Seatlle if the franchsie doesn't turn around.

The log jam of teams in the east time zone makes it a little harder on getting this done to make sence.
