The 5th would be Fraser , which I'm guessing will use "Detroit" in their name. This suggests that there are 12 teams with the Fraser francise, but there are already 12 without it with the addition of Danbury. So, is Fraser a new, 13th, francise, or are one of the existing ones relocating to keep it at 12? Is Fraser a go for 04/05? I assume so if they have a head coach already, but the article isn't clear on it.The United Hockey League has 12 teams in seven states, including five in Michigan. The other four are the Flint Generals, Kalamazoo Wings, Muskegon Fury and Port Huron Beacons.
I hope your wrong. That name sucks (imo). Reminds me of Mike & the Mechanics. I can hear it now as the players come on the ice "All I need is a miracle".
When they were trying to put indy baseball in Mt. Clemens, MI, I was partial to the name "Motown Sounds". Thats what I would have suggested if it had gone as far as a name the team contest. Don't know what the copyright implications would be, but it was a heck of a lot better than what the investors were calling the team the "Mt. Clemen's Clems", and is a heck of alot better than the "Mechanics". (again imo)
