I am wondering what were some of the proposed team nicknames that didn't make it in the NHL? I guess this question is most applicable to recent expansion or relocated teams. I will start for the Wild: Voyageurs- Solid. Would have fit well with Jacques. Freeze- Atrocious. Northern Lights- Liked it okay, but too close to the North Stars. Kinda sounds like a girls volleyball team. Blue Ox- Liked it as the name of our roller hockey team, but not for the NHL. White Bears- Would have been fine. Wild- Initially, I was terrified. I was scared they would take the adjective route complete with horrible songs. But was relieved when they went with wildlife. For the Preds, I seem to recall Fury or Ice Cats. I want to say that Phoenix came down to the Coyotes or Scorpions. There may have been others. What else was out there?
