Fantasy hockey isn't for everyone. Let's be very clear about that from the start. The attention required over a (normally) 82-game season means that there are daily roster adjustments, constant checks on the injury wire and scheduled time set aside for belligerent trash-talking to the other members of your league.
It's just one more thing to miss as the NHL lockout drags on. Pretending to be a general manager of your fictitious team broadens your knowledge of the NHL talent pool and has the ability to make a meaningless Wednesday night game that much more interesting if you have players from your roster on either team.
Naming your fantasy team is an endeavor in and of itself. Picking the right team name can give you a mental advantage over the rest of your league. While most leagues have censors to prevent the obviously profane, correctly choosing your words can give you a winning combination.
The following are the top 25 fantasy hockey names I found. They are offensive by design. They are sophomoric, juvenile and mostly inappropriate. Prepare to laugh or be offended and in some cases both.
The creativity in these names is obvious, and the good news is that you can't copyright a fantasy hockey name. That means that on the odd chance the NHL decides to play, one of these team names can be yours. Enjoy now!
