I think they should of stayed the Sharks. I mean there are other AHL teams that have the same name as their NHL team. I'll list them: Wikes Bare Penguins(Pittsburgh),P rovidence Bruins(Boston, Texas Stars(Dallas) and Iowa Wild(Minnesota) The city in () is NHL team. Two of these teams play in the same state as their NHL team in fact. So I really don't see why they had to change their name from the Sharks to the Barracuda. Ok I don't hate the name I just think they could of thought of a better one.
I hate the new Cleveland Monsters name. I wish they would've consulted the fans and season ticket holders (like myself) about the name change. Almost everybody I've talked to likes "Lake Erie" better... Speaking of the monsters though, Jared Bednar (monsters head coach) has been hired by the Colorado Avalanche. Bednar is a hell of a coach and a great guy. Wish him all the best. Anybody know of any coaching replacements?
As for the San Jose team, I think the only reason they went with a different name is because they play in the same arena as the NHL team. If they played at the Cowpalace or something, they would probably stick with the sharks name.
