The NHL's Newest Team: Meet The Winnipeg Skeets!!!

If it pans out, this is great.

We need to keep our money-losing NHL team in Phoenix. And Winnipeg gets to have its own money-losing team. It's win-win! (or lose-lose, depending on your perspective.)

Winnipeg - Phoenix: now, that's a great natural rivalry. They're north-south of each other. Plus, since the Phoenix Coyotes used to be the Winnipeg Jets, it's Winnipeg 2.0 vs. Winnipeg 1.0!

Now, for a name. How about the Winnipeg Skeets. It's a riff off of skates and mosquitos. Team Motto: "Float like a debenture, sting like a skeet!" I can hear the street-talk now: "how 'bout those Skeeters?!".  Hey, I'm registering the names now. Skeet™Skeeters™. They'll have to pay me! Team logo: A very menacing mosquito drawing blood -- if that's not hockey, I don't know what is!

It's a great day for the NHL! It's a great day for hockey! It's a great day for Canada! O Canada, our home...

I'll let you finish it off.
