    If the team was a perennial contender, MSLE could change the team name to the Pylons and have them wear pink, yellow, orange and green jerseys. All I care about (and what everyone else should care about) is winning. When we start doing a lot of that then we can discuss changing the name and the colours. But for now, why waste time and money on changing some that has NO EFFECT on the performance on the court?

    Worked out pretty well for them? Do appealing team names make the players pay better?

    Have you ever seen a lake in Los Angeles? :P I dont think any of their success would have been any different if they were named the Los Angeles Sulfur Dioxides.
    Sulfur Dioxides is still a better name than Pelicans.

    +1 for Huskies...BTW, I get that the Raptors use the colour red to distinguish themselves as the only Canadian team, but, other than TFC all Toronto sports teams have traditionally used the colour blue..Maple Leafs, Blue Jays, Argonauts...So I'm all for having the blue & white Huskies jerseys
    I would prefer not having any association with the Leafs. If there was some way to sever ownership with them too, I'd be all for it

    Thankfully I'm a recent transplant, so I'm spared the pain of having to be a Flames fan... I think that's far worse than even being a Leafs fan!
    Nonsense. I am not in Toronto but am a Flames fan. Flames at least have won a cup in the last 25 years!

    I am not so willing to throw the past away. I think its a move based on fan insecurity. Probably the worst way to improve the team.

    Not to mention that I have been a fan since 95, its my past I would be changing, and I don't feel there is a need to do that.

    I agree with the sentiment that if you're going to change, i want a complete whitewash, minus Casey and a few of the players.

    a fresh, clean start could be a really good thing for this team, not to mention a talent infusion.

    Calgary, where teams refuse to trade assets and commit to a true rebuild. Yup, sounds about right

    ...and a Raptor would kill a Pelican any day, just might get a little bothered by the Heat

    I say relocate the team to Calgary, where the name will have all the same positives it currently has, with the added benefit of being applicable to the city/region/province. I could possible have some bias in my opinion though...
