    No, there isn't really an NHL team coming to Cream City, but a personal project I'm working on requires us to come up with a franchise name for a team in Milwaukee.

    The expansion team coming to Vegas after next season puts the league at an imbalance, 15 teams in the West (I'd imagine Vegas will go to the Pacific Division, putting 8 teams there) and 16 in the East (2 divisions of 8 teams), leaving a spot in the Central Division for a new team.

    Milwaukee makes the most likely spot, barring the league bringing back the Whalers.

    So, what I'd like from you guys are ideas for the team name. They can range from just brining the Admirals up to the bigs, or whatever.

    Here are the other teams in the Central:
    Chicago Blackhawks
    Minnesota Wild
    Winnipeg Jets
    St Louis Blues
    Nashville Predators
    Colorado Avalanche
    Dallas Stars

    So a nice mix of city and state names at the front. Fire away!

    Unfortunately Milwaukee will never be an NHL city. Quebec City is t the most likely expansion in the future.

    The new arena being built is not being built for hockey. It's about 16,500 for basketball and any reconfigure would lower capacity for hockey. Ok for minor league but not nhl.

    Other issue is territory rights
