Any other Hockey fans hear that they're going to move the Phoenix coyotes to Hartford to reform the Whalers? I hope they do, because then I can go root for the Whalers AND the Bruins :D

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.

Its because its referring to a singular leaf on the canadian flag. Not just all leaves in general.

Level 86
Jul 6, 2021
The team was named after Canadians soldiers who wore a Maple Leaf in WWI. The plural Leafs is actually grammatically correct since it refers to a group and is a proper noun. As a common noun, it wold be maple leaves with maple being an adjective and not considered part of the title or noun.

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. :-\

+1
Level 39
Jul 30, 2020
The quiz description does use the verb "play" in present tense. Kraken doesn't play yet, so the present tense "play" doesn't include them.

But in the future, as soon as Kraken starts playing, the quiz should be updated of course.
