When we woke up yesterday morning, we were greeted by this fine tweet from Mr. Sean Leahy, associate editor for Puck Daddy.
We’re still pissed he didn’t do the national anthem at the Winter Classic.
While I decided to change up my team name from last year — HelmetHead (an homage to the great band, Great Big Sea) — to a Sci-Fi reference.
Yea, I made a Star Trek reference. Suck it.
They said jocks and Trekkies couldn’t co-exist in the same world… we’ve proved them wrong.
Another Days of Y’Orr staff member, Pizz, went with Honey Nut Chelios last year, to the much dismay of the rest of the league.
On the heels, of course, of Leahy’s news came a slew of great fantasy hockey names via Twitter #fantasyhockeynames. You can find the whole list via that link, but we decided to go a step further and pick our favorites and see what these team name mascots or logos would look like.
After the jump, Photoshop fun and enough hockey puns to make you sick.
Here are some of our favorites. We’ve tried to give credit where credit is due to the people who came up with these ideas. If you thought of it first, sorry. If you don’t like us posting your team names here, well, you probably shouldn’t have tweeted it for all the world to see.
First off. The Punny:
High Rask, High Reward
To Suffer the Slings and Parros
Billy Shakespeare would appreciate the pun
The Big Lebeleskey
That’s What Sbisa Said
We’re still not 100% sure how you really pronounce his name
(We saw a few Kariya/Korea references)
Baby Got Backstrom
capitaLOLs had a few good names to choose from.
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Sutter
Primeau money; Primeau problems
Ryan Callahan Auto Parts
Pat Quin Medicine Man
@jonnyc02223 was a roll last night with names
PJ (Stock) and the Bear
We know nothing about this show.
Your Loobs Give me a Savard-on
The Peter North Stars
We’re assuming @thejpiga already knows about this team.
Coming this October…
Thornton Hears a Bru
Zidlicky My Balls and Malkin Me Horny
Flight of the Commodores
We always appreciate a good Flight of the Conchords reference
The (Sexual) Predators
Some people go the blunt route with their team names:
Pronger is Gay
Blackhawks wouldn’t lie to us, right?
(Tell us something we don’t already know)
Others were… well… just plain ol’ dicks:
And, lastly, there were those who prefer to be ironic.
What’s your fantasy team name(s) for this year?
