Mascots For NHL Teams Without Them

There are only four such teams; here are some possibilities for them:

Flyers: Interestingly enough, the Flyers had that weird mascot back in the '70's, Slapshot. I'm not even sure what he was supposed to be.

One of two possibilities would seem to work for Philadelphia now. For one, you could go with this guy...

He was apparently designed by a Flyers fan a few years ago and named Phil the Flyer, and I'd say he's a pretty cleverly-designed mascot. Alternately, maybe bring back Thrash, who was an exceptionally cool-looking mascot who was unfortunately forced into retirement when his team packed up and left Atlanta. His species does have breeding grounds in Pennsylvania, among other states, and he is, after all, a flyer :).

Rangers: Not quite sure what you do for this team. Maybe you could have a guy named Tex (the name is a reference to their founder and original owner, Tex Rickard) wearing some red, white, and blue rodeo cowboy-type getup. This does seem kind of cheesy, though. Wonder if someone else might have a better idea.

Stars: I think if they had some bull mascot, like the Texans' Toro or their old "mooterus" logo, they'd be good to go. He could be named StarSteer or something like that.

Oilers: How about a guy that sort of resembles the rig worker from that old alternate logo of theirs? Maybe call him Ed :P.

Fun Fact:

Tex Rickard's team had yet to announce their name, but the New York press coined the term "Tex's Rangers"- after the Law Enforcement Agency.

Rickard liked the nickname and decided to stick with it.

No.

Just... no.

You know, while we're on the subject, I think the Avs really need to bring back Howler the Yeti. Sure, they can keep Bernie, but bring back Howler to work with him. From everything I know, he was well-loved by the fans, and I don't think the fact that his performer got in some fight should have been a reason to drop him completely. They couldn't have just hired a new performer? Seriously?

The Red Wings have Al the Octopus but he's actually inflated not a person in a costume...also marketed in printed merchandise too..

Pretty sure the Wings had a mascot back in the mid-1980s. I think it was called "The Winger". Basically a person dressed in a red bird costume with a Red Wings jersey on.
