They should not be allowed to change their name. So it should be the Oklahoma CIty Super sonics, the Phoenix Jets, Washington Expos and the Colorado Nordiques.

The Hornets, Flames, Jazz, Grizzlies got it right.

That is all.

Then we'd have the New York Orioles (Yankees), the New jersey Scouts (Devils) and the Los Angeles Braves (Clippers)!

who cares. They would be appropriate nonetheless.

Are you suggesting that the LA Lakers as a name does not work?

The only one would be the exception to the rule is the Yankees (like Acie pointed out), but still that's only becuase they've been the Yankees for so long. Had they remained the Orioles at the beginning it would have been fine and my idea is still right.

Colorado Nordiques. enough said.

It's cool though when cities geat another franchise and they can use the previous teams name like the Brewers, the Alouettes, the Browns, the Senators...

agreed.


wasn't Hamilton in the NHL in the early 1900's and they were called the tigers right?
How cool would it be if they ever got an NHL team now and they were the Hamilton Tigers?

Now you've made also reminded me about we we should be the Huskies.


I'm all about sports history and traditions (as was my initial point) so i'm in full agreement with you.

Wouldn't they want to distance themselves from the Hamilton Tiger Cats?

Really?

Oh well, i would think a new team would want new colour, new name and go in a different fresh direction if a new NHL franchise went there. Especially considering anyone that would have remembered the Hamilton Tigers hockey team is more then likely worm food.

They did and technically they were never really the Bulldogs at all.

Quote:
The Quebec Bulldogs were a men's senior-level ice hockey team officially known as the Quebec Hockey Club, later as the Quebec Athletic Club. Their recorded play goes back as far as the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada (AHAC) in 1889, although the Quebec Hockey Club is known to have played in tournaments prior to that date. The club continued as an amateur team through various leagues, eventually becoming professional in 1908, and eventually playing in the National Hockey League. The Bulldog name was given by the media and was so popular with the fans a Bulldog mascot was created but was never officially changed until the team moved to Hamilton, Ontario in 1920 and became the Tigers.


Quote:
In December 1913, the Bulldogs moved to the new Quebec Arena.The following seasons would see the Bulldogs drop from the top of the league. They would finish third overall in each of the next three seasons and in the last NHA season (1916–17) went second overall. After their two Stanley Cup wins, though, they would never again challenge for the Cup.

With the end of the National Hockey Association and the start of the National Hockey League, the Quebec HC were invited to become a founding member of the NHL. Unfortunately, Quebec was unable to garner the required funds or merge with a top amateur team, and suspended operations for two seasons. While the team was suspended, their star player, Joe Malone, played for the Montreal Canadiens.

For the 1919–20 season, Mike Quinn revived the Quebec HC and changed the club name to the Quebec Athletic Club upon entry to the NHL. Newspapers at the time now referred to the team as the Quebec Athletics rather than Bulldogs. Joe Malone rejoined the franchise. Malone would win the scoring championship that year with 39 goals. Despite Malone's scoring and the presence of players like Harry Mummery, Quebec had a dismal season, finishing last, with four wins and twenty losses.

Before the 1920–21 season, the NHL took back the franchise, and sold it to Hamilton owners who moved the team to Hamilton where it became the Tigers. This helped to head off a potential competing league from setting up in Hamilton.

The team played as the Hamilton Tigers in the NHL from 1920 to 1925. Due in large part to a players' strike in the 1925 NHL playoffs, the franchise was revoked a second time, in the summer of 1925 and the players bought out by the expansion New York Americans franchise. The Americans would play in the NHL from 1925 to 1942.

The last active Bulldogs player was Dave Ritchie, who retired in 1926.

I like it that they changed. The examples given are the reasons for this. But the reason I prolly like the names of teams now is cuz that's whats in my mind. I still think they should be changed cuz the name should resemble something about the city. Some teams don't do this but every team has a unique name according to something in their city. If we just use the last name it wouldn't be good. Also, like the Sonics, they want to get another team so if they gave the name up then they would have to creat their own franchise and name. This way they get to keep their history and what not
