What is your favorite former NHL team? Moved, folded, merged whatever. If there is a team that is no more, it qualifies. What is your favorite? I liked the California Golden Seals which later became the Cleveland Barons and merged with the Minnesota North Stars then emerged from the North Stars to become the San Jose Sharks. The Colorado Rockies (formerly Kansas City Scouts and now New Jersey Devils) had cool uniforms The Hartford Whalers had an ingenious logo. The Seals are definitely my fave. Love the green, gold and white color scheme and I love an underdog.
