There are lots of silly team nicknames in the NHL. (The Blue Jackets immediately leap to mind. Are you a bunch of jackets? Jacket-makers? I don't get it.) But I'll never understand the Hartford Whalers' decision to move to Carolina and immediately re-name their team after a natural distaster that could actually kill some of their fans.
But, then again, no one has every really accused the Hartford/Carolina franchise of making tons of great decision. I mean, the team has settled on a logo that has been called 'a monkey's asshole' by people we know and who may or may not have been writing for our paper.
Anyway, 6pm start, here is your game day thread. Game is on FSN Midwest and someone in the comments will likely have an online link.
Let's go Blues.
