Talk to me, people - Hockey Whoopass Jamboree update

I'm getting lots of suggestions from folks about the Jamboree and what to do if the NHL tanks the season. I think Victor suggested the ECHL first, and because I'm most familiar with it and it has the largest spread of teams I thought that was a good idea. But other good suggestions have come up. So we'll hash it out in the comments, which way to we go with this (assuming the bastards NHL doesn't pull its collective head out).


2. AHL (anyone remember the Baltimore Skipjacks? *sniff* I loved those guys)

3. Derek's Rec League

Also, welcome to Matt Navarre of Bad State of Gruntledness (Dallas Stars) and Wendy from Adventures of MomLady (Philadelphia Flyers) to the Jamboree.

The other players are:

VegasBaby - Calgary Flames
Derek - Colorado Avalanche
Catt - Pittsburg Penguins
Jenn - Colorado Avalanche
Heather - St Louis Blues
Dr Funk - Ottawa Senators
GEBIV - Buffalo Sabres
Victor - Washington Capitals
Helen - Dallas Stars
Daniel - Atlanta Thrashers
Gir - Calgary Flames
Pogo - Calgary Flames
Cindy - Montreal Canadiens
Frinklin - Vancouver Canucks
RP - New York Rangers
Tricia - Atlanta Thrashers
Nic - Washington Capitals
Kin - Anaheim Mighty Ducks
Ted (yours truly) - San Jose Sharks

My heart is a little closer to the ECHL, even though we no longer have the Ice Breakers. (If we go with the ECHL, I'll take the Pensacola Ice Pilots.) If we go AHL, I'll take the Portland Pirates...and come to think of it, if we actually have an NHL season, I'm kinda taking the Pirates then, too.
Or we could pool our resources and buy a team in the Southeast Hockey League
How about it? The Hot Jets take to the ice!

I don't follow hockey, but if you go with the AHL I'll just HAVE to take the Bridgeport Sound Tigers!

How am I going to choose a team as annoyingly bad as the Rangers from these other possible teams?

Uh, sweetie--I was going to start my campaign to buy an SEHL team after the CBA runs out. They will be called, of course, the Rink Rats. Ted can buy his own team and call 'em the Hot Jets.

And if we go AHL, I got Albany!

I can't believe the talk I am hearing "if we don't have an NHL season."

Oh for shame people, I just refuse to believe we won't have a full season.
