3 Colorado Avalanche Colorado 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!

4 Nashville Predators Nashville Predators The 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?

I am a Boston fan and even love this logo.

5 New Jersey Devils New Jersey Devils

They are named after one of the most famous cryptids in the world.

IS NOT BETTER THAN THE STARS!

6 Pitsburgh 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

No but the flames are in a location that is cold. Beat that. Penguins is a silly name

ALL Pittsburgh teams have the Greatest names! Penguins, Steelers and Pirates!
Flyers? Flamers? Blues? Phillies, Browns? what is that?!

7 Buffalo Sabres Buffalo Sabres

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

8 Philadelphia Flyers Philadelphia 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.

Better than penguins

Just remember PENS SUCK

9 Florida Panthers Florida Panthers The 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.

Hell no you won't be a panthers fan. I dislike every american nhl team but if I could choose one usa team I like it would be the blackhawks. Since I am a canadian I only mostley like canada's teams. Hockey belongs in canada not in florida dude. I was used to like the san jose sharks since I really like sharks but I no longer like san jose anymore. But I still love the animal shark. The panther animals also looks epic but the team? really?

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

Great name but this team sucks

10 Boston Bruins Boston Bruins The 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.

They are the worst ever

The Bruins are chel

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

11 San Jose Sharks San Jose Sharks The 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

Best team ever

12 Dallas Stars Dallas Stars The Dallas Stars are a professional ice hockey team based in Dallas, Texas. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

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

13 Phoenix Coyotes
14 Carolina Hurricanes Carolina Hurricanes The Carolina Hurricanes are a professional ice hockey team based in Raleigh, North Carolina. They are members of the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League.

One of the most dangerous storms to ever exist.

15 Detroit Red Wings Detroit Red Wings The 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.

16 Chicago Blackhawks Chicago Blackhawks

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

My favorite team should be number 1

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

17 Winnipeg Jets Winnipeg Jets The 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.

I love the whiteout!

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

18 Los Angeles Kings Los Angeles Kings The 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.

They've been kings for 2 years out of the last 5-so they've got a name that lives up to its billing. Montreal Canadiens, yeah, that's original. How about the Boston Americans while you're at it...Go Kings Go

LOL they are not the kings of hockey and I am serious. Montreal Canadiens is much much cooler. Because it is a canadian sport and you know what? I am happy Atlanta lost it's two nhl teams. Because hockey is just not their game. But why florida arizona calfornia I mean their are more sunbelt teams than canadian franchises.

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

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

Nothing like it in any other sport - pjh4109

20 Vancouver Canucks Vancouver Canucks The Vancouver Canucks are an ice hockey team based in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Sorry, I accidentally made another one of these. Here's my vote to compensate.

Under-ranked at less than 10?! Let's show some more respect for this great team.

A cool slang word for canadian

Well whats better then an orca? this should be higher then the sharks and panthers and kings.

I searched after a "sports star" because I had to write about one for school. I serched for an Hockey player, so I searched for a team first. The New York Rangers, this ne
