What's so bad about the EGG line?


In the higherarchy of line names, you have the truely cool names that cleverly describe the line in some way (Czechmates, A-Line, Legion of Doom, FLY line) then the quirky ones that still get the message across (J-Line, Vowel Line, GAG line, Maddenbrunner) then there are the horrific mash ups that could only come from idiots like Stan Fischler. The EGG line belongs to this last group. It's a horrible name, and I think that even the players on the line have said that they don't like it.

Hello all, long time no post.

I was hoping you guys might humor me with some instant feedback.

If you can, have a look at the nhl.com splash page. Right now (1 AM EST) it's a picture of the oh-so terribly named EGG line.

EDIT: Apparently, different users see different splash pages, this is the picture I'm referring to:

Looking at the picture, I think I finally hit on a good name: The three Amigos (or Amigos for short)

1. Obviously it refers to Gomez's hispanic heritage

2. It also, I believe, captures some of Gomez's goofy and humorous nature

3. Of course, it also is a good theme for the entire team, with a nice, cohesive connotation

I posted this at HFbards too.

If you guys like it, I'll start to promote it. If not, we'll have to keep using that godawful "EGG"

:puke:
