Discussion in 'Carolina Hurricanes' started by dukebluedynasty, Mar 1, 2018.
It's worthy of a giggle
Speaking of Pirate themes, I've often thought if it wasn't for ECU already having the name, we'd be the Pirates or Buccaneers.
Or Mustangs as a nod to the wild horses that roam the Outer Banks.
All I know is thank God 'Ice Hogs' got nixed.
I know, I know, but I'd really like a name change to Raleigh Storm.
We can keep all the logos and all the colors the same. They're fine. I like "Raleigh" because there's already a pro sports team called "Carolina" and it's not in Raleigh. It's confusing, especially when that team -- the Panthers -- also shares a team name with an NHL club. I know people think that will alienate fans from outside the immediate area, but it just won't. I'll bet 99.9% of the Washington Redskins fans come from outside of Washington, D.C. It really won't affect a thing, aside from giving the city of Raleigh a boost.
And I prefer Storm for two reasons. No. 1, we'd no longer be named after a life-threatening event that has devastated the area twice in the past 20 years, and No. 2, the single warning flag "works" now.
I know, I know, but if we're going to do anything, I think we should do this.
Thumbs down X's 100
Yeah I'm not so sure those are good reasons to change the team name to that of a travel lacrosse team.
I agree with changing the regional name of the team, but to the Raleigh Hurricanes b/c **** the rest of the state that tells you college football season is over when you ask them to change the channel to the Hurricanes game while at a bar in Banner Elk.
Ugh no. Too much like a porn star or romance novelist.
The Raleigh Storm youth hockey logo was ass.
They should become the West Raleigh Hurricanes. Then they can use the whalers logo again
I personally would not be opposed to changing everything including the team name, but I doubt that would happen.
They should have a contest for a new team logo and get something new....maybe a color change as well.
I feel like some comments in here make it seem like changing the branding would have an actual affect on our on-ice product.
GMRF: "We had a real good chance to land Tavares, actually. After he shockingly went to Free Agency we were the highest bidder and he was all in. However, last minute we decided to re-brand instead to the Raleigh Ravishing Rampage. We saw this as basically being the equivalent to landing an Elite 1C and immediately makes us a serious Stanley Cup threat."
Suddenly, a new image emerges.
The boy must learn to be a warrior! Who better to guide him than Rick Rude and Randy the Macho Man Savage in the cage of death?
The Checkers are having a wrestling theme tonight I believe
Wouldn't it just be easier to add a 2nd flag?
I think the LEGO version might stop more pucks.
haven't made it to the end of the thread yet, but on the subject of apparel....the practice jerseys the canes have (white/red/yellow).....how the hell to I get my hands on those things????
and no....not these horrific things: Carolina Hurricanes Practice Jerseys - Shop.NHL.com
I think their legs should have the eye of the storm logo over their bottom kind of like all those girls with the juicy shorts. Anyone who can give me some photoshop assistance?
otoh has anyone seen anyone with an eye of the storm tramp stamp? There's got to be at least one and I am on a quest to see it before kicking the can.
So the thought of renaming/rebranding the team makes me crazy, but I suppose the one exception I could live with would be renaming them the "Raleigh Blackbeards" and having that wild picture that is on Cam's helmet be the logo and black Queen Anne's revenge silhouettes on the shoulders.
That would let us do some fun stuff during the playoffs (if we could make the playoffs)
Now what, Souf Cackalack?
Was he handsome?
di'int see face
Looking through a bunch of other teams uniform and logo changes over the seasons, and it becomes more and more obvious that's it's time to flush the upside down swirl and upgrade.
