If NYC Gives Up a NHL Team

I'm a fan of the Whaler's name, and not necessarily Hartford.  But something between the Bruins and NYC teams could be of use on the East Coast.  Stretching down coast, Hampton Roads of the Newport News Virginia Beach area would like to be put on ice.

In the theme of my Regional Team camping model, why not have shared Connecticut-Virginia encampments.  Get rid of the Islanders.  Unless, ....unless Seattle wants them.  Or repackage the Islanders as the Portland Whalers.  Or the shared West Coast Whales that land from Portland into Vegas every now and again.  Every handful of years in Honolulu.  Annually in Anchorage.

I don't care for the Brooklyn Islanders.  I like the idea of Whalers, Whales or Great Lakers.  Think of the North Coast Great Lakers or Fleet or Coasters of Milwaukee and Cleveland.

Should we go North, East or West with the Brooklyn based goofiness and Big Apple redundancy?

I wish the Panthers would move.  Or the Coyotes.

Other mentions of mine have been the Predators being shared in Atlanta.

Take a look around and tell me what you think.

Midlakes Mustangs NHL Expansion Team
Florida Panthers can be ridiculous. Co-Locate the Team. Rebrand. Southlakes Fisherman

West Coast Whales NHL Team in Seattle, Portland and Las Vegas
and other posts such as an Austin-Las Vegas share called the Cattle Drive.
