And the Calgary Hitmen have been using this fact to drum up interest in their upcoming bear toss game...so expect an update soon.Is there an AHL thread? If so, this belongs there.
Hershey Bears fans threw 37,798 teddy bears onto the ice last night. That eclipses the world record set by fans of the Calgary Hitmen back in 2015.
I do love me a Teddy Bear Toss.
EDIT: The capacity of the Giant Center is 10,500. There were well over three times as many stuffed animals in attendance last night as there were actual people.
This is not quite right. Bettman said this week they expect the cap around $83 mil so that would give them about $27 mil in cap space. That isn't as much as it sounds though.The Leafs now have ~$14 million to sign 10 players next year, including Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. Even if they trade Nylander, it's going to be tough for them to fit everyone in.
I'm sure they've already got their team doctor putting together his case for Patty Marleau's LTIR designation.
Unsettled. Detroithockey.net reported earlier this year that a lawyer representing Oak View Group, the expansion applicant, registered 38 different domains involving these names:
Seattle Cougars, Seattle Eagles, Seattle Emeralds, Seattle Evergreens, Seattle Firebirds, Seattle Kraken, Seattle Rainiers, Seattle Renegades, Seattle Sea Lions, Seattle Seals, Seattle Sockeyes, Seattle Totems and Seattle Whalers.
Seals have an unfortunate hockey pedigree:Seattle Sockeye has been the name of the elite men's ultimate frisbee team in Seattle since 1990, so it's not so unique.
I know, it's just ultimate frisbee, but still.
I'm on the Seattle Seals bandwagon. Seals are awesome. How can you vote against this face?
I saw somewhere the Vegas odds had the Seattle Totems as the favorite so far. Not a big fan of that, but it’s fine.Per this article, there are about 38 different possibilities. Don't really love any of them.
No. No singular names.They should buck all naming patterns and just go by "The Cascade". The Cascades/Cascadia is an informal name for the PNW, and the region is full of actual cascades (series of waterfalls) in the river valleys that make up the natural beauty. Also, this might be the thing that finally gives Stephen A Smith and Tony Kornheiser the aneurysms that take them off the air permanently.

They should be called the Seattle Seamen.Per this article, there are about 38 different possibilities. Don't really love any of them.
Ha! I love that they refer to him as "Washington's oft suspended Tom Wilson".
Or the Minnesota Wild? Oh no! The forest is going to get me!I saw somewhere the Vegas odds had the Seattle Totems as the favorite so far. Not a big fan of that, but it’s fine.
I’m not a fan of sock eyes. The name sounds cool, but the fish isn’t. Oh no! Here come those dumbass fish from the northwest! Oh noes. Could you imagine the Bruins being the Boston Cod?
This really ended up helping the B’s out. The decks will be pretty much cleared for the Bruins heading into the expansion draft. Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak, and Moore are the only players currently under contract for 2021. They’ll have room to work with, even when including expected extensions for McAvoy, DeBrusk and maybe Krug.Delayed a season so they don't start during a lockout
