ToulouseCruise BS: Hockey's back...Are ya happy about it? (657* d) RE: BS: Hockey's back...Are ya happy about it? 25 Nov 05


here is the origin of Detroit's name, and logo...

The Red Wings were called the Cougars until 1932, when a millionaire named James Norris bought the team. Here's the rest of the story, as told by Bob Duff in "Total Hockey: The Official Encyclopedia of the National Hockey League:"

"Norris had been a member of the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association, a sporting club with cycling roots. The MAAA's teams were known by their club emblem and these Winged Wheelers were the first winners of the Stanley Cup in 1893. Norris decided that a version of their logo was perfect for a team playing in the Motor City and on October 5, 1932 the club was renamed the Red Wings."
