Introducing the DHL!
Normally, there would be a logo above, but I have not come up with one yet (concepts welcome). And if I did it would look like an 8 year old drew it in Paint.
What is the DHL? The DHL is the Defunct Hockey League. It is made up of 16 mostly former NHL teams. They are split into 2 conferences and 4 divisions of 4.
The teams are...
Starting in the West, or known as the Saskin Conference. Which, is named after former disgraced NHLPA director Ted Saskin.
Peter Pocklington Division
Colorado Rockies which are owned by the MLB's Rockies owners Charlie & Dick Monfort. In an effort to expand the Rockies name they cross brand the hockey and baseball teams, making the new hockey colours purple and black.
Oakland, California Golden Seals who were not able to decide on a full name so they just jammed it all in there. They are promising fans a golden jersey.
Vancouver Millionaires who are owned by Cyclone Taylor's great great grandson, Cyclone Taylor III. Taylor also happens to be the GM, coach, and star player.
The other division in the Saskin conference
Alan Eagleson Division
To the east, and we find the Mike Danton Conference. Of course, Danton served jail time for hiring a hitman.
The first division in the Danton Conference,
Harold Ballard Division
Hamilton Tigers who were almost purchased by Jim Balsillie. When Gary Bettman got word that Jim was trying to buy a hockey team Bettman swooped in and purchased the defunct Tigers for $455 million. $1,000,000 than Balsillie had to offer.
Toronto St. Pats were also almost owned by Jim Balsillie. Again, when word got out that Balsillie was interested Leaf ownership bought the St. Pats. MLSE then decided that the Maple Leafs will also play St. Pats games.
Jim Balsillie Division
(originally the Del Baggio Division, but Jim purchased the rights to the name and renamed the division after himself)
Macon Whoopee who are in the league because retired Canadians who go south for the winter were crying for a team. The state of
Ottawa Senators, not the current ones. The old ones. Eugene Melnyk has threatened to sue over the “O” logo, but current owner Prime Minister Stephen Harper claims, “I don’t care, I make the rules in this country!”
So, if anyone has any concepts that they would like to contribute to this little project (jerseys, league logo, anything) email them in [firstname.lastname@example.org]
