Naming Winnipeg

With the apparent impending move of the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg some folks have started speculating on potential team names. I personally would rather not see the Jets moniker return. The logo was horrible, the jerseys were hideous and the team was a failure. Let's start fresh.

Winnipeg Musketeers - The Province's motto is "One with the strength of many." Still this feels a bit amateur for my taste.

Winnipeg Rockets - Winnipeg is the home of the Western Canada Aviation Museum. Winnipeg is also the headquarters to the Canadian NORAD region.

Winnipeg Strikers - After the famous general strike that took place in 1919.

Winnipeg Owls - Manitoba's official bird is the Great Grey Owl.

Winnipeg Mounties - Kind of obvious.

Winnipeg Falcons - Home to the Peregrine Falcon.

Winnipeg Red River - My personal choice. The Red River Colony was the first official settlement in the province, and Red River sounds completely badass.
