Cool name and there are a lot of cool "fire" related songs that the Arena can play... and they usually do! - VADERtheIMPALER

Not because I am a flames fan but the goal horn the music the names is just beast

ya well calgery does have a pretty awesome name

4Nashville PredatorsThe Nashville Predators are a professional ice hockey team based in Nashville, Tennessee. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

This is epic, like a clash between the avengers and the expendables. Where else do you here a team called the predators.

I have a friend who is a big fan and I have to admit it's an awesome team name

How is Flyers a cooler name than Predators?

5Colorado Avalanche

Not the best team, but definitely the coolest name.

It's an avalanche. Literally that's beyond cool.

How is it offensive to skiers? Just wondering.

Its offensive (to skiers) but awesome!

6Pitsburgh Penguins

Go name a basketball team the FLAMES! Both hockey and penguins are related to ice. Pens name and team is better than flyers.

what a cool name for a hockey team! penguins live in a cold place! hockey is a cold sport! flames are not cold! - 2234

I love the pens I'm from Pittsburgh plus their better then the Sabres

This really should be number 1. - PizzaGuy

7Buffalo Sabres

Cool name, and I like the team colors. Logo is ok, but the old one from 97-06 was so much cooler.

8Philadelphia Flyers

The name, flyers is cool and innovative because what can you relate it to? Lightning - generic, predators - cool name and not as generic as lightning, but still generic

Who wants a team called the flyers they need a new team name.

9Florida PanthersThe Florida Panthers are an American professional ice hockey team based in the Miami metropolitan area.

This should be at the bottom. Not even on the list. A panther has nothing to do with hockey. It sounds more like a football or basketball team name.

great Name sounds good FLORIDA PANTHERS yeah good but I am not a phanters fan

I WOULD NOT WANT TO MESS WITH A CAT THAT IF YOU ANGER IT CAN MAUL YOU TO DEATH AND ON TOP OF THAT IT ALSO IS THE EXACT NAME OF A TYPE OF PANTHER AND THE PANTHER SYMBOLIZES A TEAM NAMED FOR Florida PERFECTLY

10Boston BruinsThe Boston Bruins are a professional ice hockey team based in Boston, Massachusetts. The Bruins compete in the National Hockey League as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

Should be higher up. They are actually named after a fierce animal and not a star or a penguin...like those are some sad names for a team.

The Contenders

11Dallas Stars

Dallas Stars is a REALLY cool name! But why isn't Pittsburgh Penguins on here? And why is flyers on here at all? The only reason they're called that is because it's the opposite of Penguins

Yeah, it's a cool name, and it was taken to somewhere it doesn't belong! The NORTH Stars was way cooler than the "stars"

STARS NAME ROCKS THEY SHOULD HAVE A TEAM CALLED THE STARS IN EVERY SPORT

12San Jose SharksThe San Jose Sharks are a professional ice hockey team based in San Jose, California. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Especially the Sharks that break through ice for their prey

13Chicago Blackhawks

I love the name, but it's the logo that kills it

Back then Indians had different styles of names witch is cool and a Blackhawk is my favorite.

14Phoenix Coyotes
15Detroit Red WingsThe Detroit Red Wings are a professional ice hockey team based in Detroit, Michigan. They are members of the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League and are one of the Original Six teams of the league.

They are my favorite team. Too bad many of their better players retired of left.

16Carolina Hurricanes

One of the most dangerous storms to ever exist.

17Winnipeg JetsThe Winnipeg Jets are a professional ice hockey team based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

The Jets r a new team. Whats better than a military jet playing hockey? I dunno.

18Alanta Thrashers

Nothing like it in any other sport - pjh4109

19Minnesota Wild

A name that actually sounds like it belongs in hockey, unlike panthers or predators

20Los Angeles KingsThe Los Angeles Kings are a professional ice hockey team based in Los Angeles, California. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

This is the only hockey team from the southern states I like because they had gretzky.

The name says they rule the NHL, they are the kings of hockey

They are not the kings of hockey know why? their from california dude.
