    Interesting that the team names everyone loves are non-NHL teams. :)

    As a kid, always wondered why would a team call themselves as "Whalers".

    Now I love the name. :)

    Just look at my avatar, funniest hockey name ever. Their slogan was:

    "No spectators, just witnesses."

    Does it get any better than that?

    Some of the Johnston Jets (Charlestown Chiefs in Slap Shot and now Johnstown Chiefs) played for the Minnesota Fighting Saints (called the Minnesota Nighthawks at the end of Slap Shot.) Johnstown was the farm-team to the World Hockey Association's Minnesota team.

    Jack Carlson couldn't be in the movie as Jack Hanson because he was playing with Minnesota during part of the shooting schedule. Dave "Killer" Hanson played Jack Hanson instead of the character based on him, Dave "Killer" Carlson.

    Simon Gamache followed up his Memorial Cup run with a stint in the ECHL with the Greenville Grrrowl.

    Against teams like the Columbus Cottonmouths, Pee Dee Pride and Lexington Men O'War.

    Incredible.
