I did better on this than I do on most sports quizzes, but my dad worked for the Washington Capitals for the first 17 years of my life. Still, many of these teams are after my time. Never heard of the Senators, Coyotes, Wild, Predators, Hurricanes or Blue Jackets. The Avalanche started playing after my dad stopped working for the Capitals but I had at least heard of them. I think the Lightning, Panthers, Sharks and Ducks all came around at that same time, too. I got them, even though I never saw any of them play. Did Nashville used to be called the Raptors?

After the time that I gave even the slightest crap about hockey, which was back when I was a child or teenager going to games with my father.

level 58
Mar 29, 2014
The Sharks entered the NHL in 1991, the Senators and Lightning in 1992, Ducks in 1993, the Avalanche relocated from Quebec City in 1995, the Coyotes from Winnipeg in 1996, Hurricanes from Hartford in 1997, the Predators in 1998, and the Blue Jackets and Wild in 2000. The Capitals joined in 1974, so if your dad worked for them for 17 from the very first season, that would be 1991. Obviously I have no idea how old you are so I don't know exactly what years your dad worked for the Caps, but all those teams should be during your time. I can assume you also guessed the Whalers, Nordiques, and Rockies?
+1

Nov 4, 2014
All of those teams joined the league after '91 so by your math what I said was exactly right. And actually I think you were pretty much spot on... except.. I suppose he was still working for them for a few years after some of these teams got franchises it was just after I had stopped going to games. I was in high school then and had better things to do.

Hockey boring? I'm unclear how that could possibly be, even for a newcomer to the game. Pretty much continuous play for three 20 minute periods. Goals are scored frequently - unlike soccer (football), where that is a much more rare occurrence. No "injury" flops onto the turf, as is now common in soccer. Hockey players are out there hitting hard, going 100% with on-the-fly player changes. Fighting, and not silly fake fights. Thank you, Canada!!!

I've heard these rumors, but I fear that if they did move back to Hartford, bleeding hearts wouldn't let them keep the name Whalers because of the 'negative' connotations. Even though it is referring to the area's history.

I personally don't like hockey because it seems like anarchy. Unlike soccer, the puck moves around so haphazardly and changes possession so frequently that there doesn't seem to be a lot of strategy going on, just a bunch of robust Russians and Canadians slapping the puck as hard as they can towards the other team's goal.

Wow, I can tell you really know a lot about hockey! I'm sure you're right that it's totally random and haphazard and they don't really plan out anything that they do. Maybe they should stop play regularly when one player brushes another so hard that he apparently loses an eye, then they can stand in a line with their hands over their giblets while another guy shoots the puck as hard as he can at them to try to score. That would make way more sense. :-\
