Dream up Team Rebirths: The Expos, Whalers, Oilers, Royals and Monarchs

Remember the Houston Oilers?
Or the Hartford Whalers, Montreal Expos, Cincinnati Royals and Kansas City Monarchs?

Basketball, football, hockey and baseball rebirths these could be.

Did you know that the first pro night games didn't happen in MLB?  KC Monarchs of the Negro Leagues did it before the Reds did at Crosley Field.
Baltimore and Cinci in the NBA

Anyway, the New Orleans-St. Louis Stars were a two-place team for a time.

Check out some of this blabber:

Oklahoma Oilers in the NFL

The old Kings of Sacramento:  wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacramento_Kings#1957.E2.80.931972:_Cincinnati_Royals 

....and you knew that the Kansas City-Omaha Kings existed, right?  1972-1975

Big Baseball back in Montreal after a decade absence ?
Major League Baseball in Vancouver and Montreal. Make it one team. North Country Lumberjacks
Las Vegas Montreal Internationals Baseball. Major League Expansion Experiment
East Coast Whalers of Norfolk and Hartford. A Two-Place Team in the NHL 
....and I think the Nordiques will come back in the NHL's planned expansion.  More Canadian hockey is rightfully so.  Midlakes Mustangs NHL Expansion Team
Florida Panthers can be ridiculous. Co-Locate the Team. Rebrand. Southlakes Fisherman. #NHLExpansion  
...or should Nashville share with Atlanta as the Southlakes Predators?
1996 never came for the Nordiques

What do you think?
See much more expansion, co-location and relocation talk for football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer on my blog http://prosportsexpansion.blogspot.com
