This name has been going around the Internet for a while now and has a lot of people liking the sound of it.
Many people say that if Winnipeg was to acquire a new NHL franchise, it would be best for a new start. A new beginning would separate the new team from the Jets, who despite having some great memories, were never able to really win in the NHL and saw not so great fan support in the final few seasons while players were being sold off for loonies.
Falcons would be a great new start. It is sticking with the bird name from the Thrashers and it was the name of the team that Winnipeg was represented by all the way back to the 1920's, when they won a Gold Medal. Plus the name isn't too over the top and could be seen years from now.
Honestly, names like the Predators or Thunder (NBA) are just silly.
My say: Great for a fresh start
The photo has been going around with the name idea of the Falcons becoming for and more mentioned in the media. Looks too similar to the old Capitals logo to me.
