If they do go with Steelheads, lets hope that Duff McArdle, Colleen Blessed and Brett Parker aren't involved in the running of the team. They really screwed the previous "Steelheads" franchise.

Sorry man, but it’s a minor-league name. Your concepts for it are good, but the name is still stupid. I know you spent years trying to argue for it (along with that Halifax Highlanders), but it’s just not worthy of the NHL (excluding the Wild).

And the Wild has the excuse of being a team made and named at the tail end of the 90's phase of stupid team names. 😛

The Wild don’t have any excuse at all.  It’s a profoundly stupid name.

I mean, Nashville didn't do much better. Their name actually got their subreddit banned for a bit. 😛

Nashville also has a bad name.  But a bad plural noun name will always be better than a stupid singular abstract name.  Always.

At least there’s a specific local story behind Nashville’s name. “Wild” always felt too generic and conceptual for a team name.

This is why you should never follow trends for something that is supposed to last generations. Trendy isn't sustainable.

Considering that the 3 finalists in the Nashville fan vote were "Attack", "Fury", and "Ice Tigers", I think we're all lucky Craig Leopold added Predators as an option,

What, you don't like the idea of the NHL having teams named the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, Minnesota Wild and Nashville Ice Tigers? 😛

Cities evolve, friend. There comes a point for all of us when we say "that's enough change for me thank you very much!" I haven't hit that point yet.

Yes I know. But having moved from three different great neighborhoods due to progress that replaces nice little homes with multiplex condos I’ve seen enough. Seattle Condos would be a quite appropriate name. Ha. Honestly though I’m hoping for an old school name even if Seattle isn’t old school.
