  1. This makes me think of Ray Finkle in Ace Venture. Laces out!!!!
  2. What other AHL affiliate could move here? To take a quote from the movie "Hot Shots" when Topper Harley asks, "Why me?" he's answered with, "Because you're the best of what's left."
  3. Correct. There needs to be some kind of professional team there. We need the Pack playing in Hartford.
  4. And yes Jersey, I know it was just a dig at Whalers fans. But look at it like this. How many other cities of teams that have come and gone can say that they still have a fanbase, be it for nostalgic reasons or whatever? Some but not a lot.
  5. I'd root for the Whalers. I spent a lot of time after they left being bitter towards the NHL, but I like hockey, and I like having something to root for. The difference with the Whalers is I'd be rooting for my own team from where I live. Now that's just me and I can't speak for anyone else, but it's safe to say that others have possibly moved on, be it rooting for other teams , being a casual fan, not caring for the NHL at all, or whatever else is in between. Now you say that twenty years is not enough time for Whalers fans to have moved on. Some may have kids now or grandkids, a whole new generation of fans in the waiting. With that I agree. A rebirth of the Whalers would absolutely make them the most popular team in Connecticut by a mile, but as much as I believe they are popular right now that popularity is based mostly on nostalgia.
  6. Very true. Most people have moved on and become fans of other teams, but if asked many would probably still pick the Whalers as a second team based purely on nostalgia. The popularity for the Whaler brand is still there based on their merchandise sales. But as I've said before, people have moved onto other teams, but I'd be more than willing to bet if the Whalers were to suddenly return they would have a huge fanbase in the state and possible some places out of state.
  7. I absolutely agree. If there was a survey like that I think the results could be different
  8. Theres no denying the popularity of the Whalers but this survey has nothing to do with them.
  9. I honestly would have thought the Bruins would have been the more popular choice
  10. I will say that as a Rangers fan the results are a little nice to see
  11. This isn't all that shocking, what with how dense the population is in the south western part of the state. But I'm more shocked by the fact that the Kings are the most popular team in Idaho. Did not see that one coming. But the title of this thread begs the question, and it seems obvious it was, but was this just a list for current NHL teams?

  13. I'm hoping for a great season from both the Wolf Pack and UConn
  14. This whole argument is boring
  15. I don't want to sound negative but where are you getting this information from. Just curious.
  16. It seems doubt**l that Hartford would have ever had a AAA team at all. AA seems to be the highest we'll ever get around here in terms of baseball, and that's still not bad. Besides, doesn't AAA have some rule about how one team can be to another, or something like that? Though I may be wrong.
  17. There's nothing new with this article that I haven't heard a million times before.
  18. Or kind of like keying your own car
  19. Looks great. Glad to see it's coming along. Looking forward to seeing the Wolf Pack and UConn playing on the new ice.
  20. Karmanos probably wouldn't sell unless it was a damn good offer. It seems like he wants to sell to someone that will keep the team in Carolina.
  21. I'm just going to look at it as nothing more but the last game of the regular season, nothing more. That it until I hear different.
  22. That's pretty much what I was thinking.
  23. Awesome to hear and thanks for the picture. Can't wait to see the Wolf Pack and UConn on it this coming season
  24. Good interview. Seems like he's bringing some good experience to the team. Hope**lly the Wolf Pack have a great upcoming season
