Re: The AltHL Season 2020

Anchorage Whales - whales and whaling were big themes from Alaskan fishermen, and I think Whales stands on its own apart from Whalers to be a unique identity idea.
Detroit Moguls - in reference to the big auto industry and factory magnates headquarted in Detroit
Edmonton Eagles - alliteration mostly, also eagles are cool 
Milwaukee Growlers - in reference to the brewing culture in Milwaukee
Ottawa Swans - elegant birds seems to fit well with a capitol city
Saskatoon Settlers - big prairie was settled

Re: The AltHL Season 2020

Anchorage Genies: Named in honor of Genie Chance, a reporter and later politician who spent nearly 24 consecutive hours reporting on the 1964 Alaska earthquake. This is probably way too deep of a cut, but I think it would be a really cool brand.

Detroit Ambassadors: Re-upping this from the AltBA; named after the Ambassador Bridge.

Edmonton Trappers: There used to be a lotta fur trading up in that neck of the woods.

Milwaukee 48ers: Named after the German immigrants in Milwaukee, many of whom participated in the 1848 revolutions. Also gives us a Niners/Sixers type name.

Ottawa Barons: Named after the lumber barons prevalent in the second half of the 19th century. It also sounds very parliamentarian. (If this is nixed because of Cleveland, lmk and I'll change it.)

Saskatchewan Prairie Dogs: Saskatoon is nicknamed "Paris of the Prairies," and what's more prairie than a good old prairie dog?

Re: The AltHL Season 2020

Anchorage: Alaska Snappers- The Pacific Red Snapper can be found in waters near Anchorage
Saskatoon: Saskatchewan Jive- Saskatchewan is home to a famous jazz music festival.
Edmonton Miners- Haha almost oil I'm creative
Detroit Nighthawks- Kinda showing the darker side of the city
Milwaukee Bobcats- Wildlife fits I guess
Ottawa- I give up. I'm sure Osgiliath has a better idea than me
