Krause is a "raging" something, but I'll let you fill in the blank.  Although the Rose trade is looking pretty good...

Kick The Sky,

WHOA! Did I miss a few. I was, however, not considering any combo names, nor minor league teams. For example, I wouldn't consider American Eagle for the Philadelphia Eagles or Gwazi-Lion for my Detroit Lions, or as you mentioned, Jet coaster for the NY Jets. Sorry, Shaggy, but the Hershey Bears are not NHL. I only considered U.S. Coaster whole names, singular or plural notwithstanding, from the top 4 leagues (NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB).

I missed...

Timber Wolf
Raven
Predator
Patriot
Diamond Back
Grizzly - I forgot about the NBA team, but there was an IHL hockey team that won the Turner Cup in '95 and '96 called the Utah Grizzlies

I had...

Avalanche @ PKD - Colorado (NHL)
Jaguar @ KBF - Jacksonville (NFL)
Raptor @ CP - Toronto (NBA)
Titan @ SFoT - Tennessee (NFL)

There's still one I have that everyone else missed.....(think hoops)
