I have not exactly been a hockey guy from the start. Guys like Paul, Otto, and John have been on this from the word “go” on this movement. Hell, I think this is the first hockey article I think I’ve ever written. But this stuff is a lot of fun. Who doesn’t love a big tournament? People without internet in East Timor, that’s who! The fans actually have a voice in what the potential NHL team name is. How cool is that!? Thanks to Tim Leiweke for giving the fans a voice in the process. By no means is this an official poll, but it’s a lot of fun none-the-less.
Results from the 5-Hole Region:
Sea Lions defeat Mountaineers, 52-48
Wolves defeat Black Bears, 60-40
Emeralds defeat Navigators, 60-40
Metropolitans defeat Otters, 62-38
The Metropolitans had the biggest showing the region, much to the chagrin of Jeff Brown. Dude hates the Mets name.
