Re: The AltHL - Group C Voting & Owner Application!

Boston Pilgrims-Obvious reasons

Los Angeles Drillers-Southern California, due to being an underwater ecosystem in prehistoric times, used to be an oil-drilling hotspot.

Montreal Trappeurs-References the fur traders who settled in Canada during colonial times.

Calgary Spurs-Spurs are the pointy thing that go on cowboys’ feet.

Re: The AltHL - Group C Voting & Owner Application!

My submissions:

The Boston Pirates: Back in the age of Pirates, Boston was a key nest of Pirates.  I wanted to play up Boston's underused relationship with the sea.  

The Alberta Clippers: A winter storm that spreads its impact all over North America. Just like the team will.

The Los Angeles Skates / LA Skates: A little dual meaning here.  Skates for hockey of course. But Skates for the fish that are similar to stingrays found in California.

The Montreal Chevaliers (Go Chevs!):  I wanted a french word. Chevaliers is the french word for knights.

Re: The AltHL - Group C Voting & Owner Application!

Boston Anchors- The New England area has a lot of naval and general ship history, being a harbor and all.
Los Angeles Avengers- I know this existed as a arena football team, but it’s a perfect opportunity to name them after the current rise in popularity of the avengers movie, I imagine it like the Might Ducks.
Montreal Dukes- It plays off the french royalty theme that Montreal kinda has.
Calgary Broncos- Alberta is the Texas of Canada right?

Re: The AltHL - Group C Voting & Owner Application!

- Boston Crawdads, in reference to the seafood culture of the East Coast.
- Los Angeles Lions, not really in reference to anything, but it is a symbol of royalty, so it could double as a reference to the city's wealth and entertainment industry (through MGM's mascot being the lion)
- Montreal Chevaliers, I'll echo this one (I used it for my now-dormant series)
- Calgary Colts, a reference to the city's cowboy culture

Montreal Blizzard - Same in English and French

Boston Renaissance - Several top Universities in the area
Calgary Archers - Located on the Bow River and traditionally called Elbow by area First Nations

Re: The AltHL - Group C Voting & Owner Application!

Hopefully I got this in time!

New England Renegades : a nod to the pirates and American revolutionaries.

Los Angeles Wildfire : I was going to go with California Fire here for the name of the people who fight wildfires, but I didn’t like it as much and LA Flames didn’t quite do it for me.

Montreal Musketeers : named after the standard issue weapon of the Voltiguers from the war of 1812.

Calgary Chargers : Wanted to stick with the western theme and stampede(rs) was taken.
