image for Top six names not appropriate for sports arenas... The NHL needs names worthy of its ice cathedrals.

Hockey is a sport steeped in tradition. Unfortunately it's a tradition of supplying nicknames for its arenas that are way off track. Here are the top six offenders...

1.The Brink...not an official name. But used excessively during playoff season,. How would you like to be on the Brink all the time?

2. The Garden...A soft name for a brutal game... Brutal and a half if you count Knick appearances...

3. The Collosseum...Christians vs. lions...too close to Game of Thrones...

4. The Meadowlands...name suggests bucolic paradise... Not a wasteland populated by devils.,.

5. The Rock... This name was swiped from Alcatraz. On second thought, that's quite all riight. Those hockey jockeys get away with murder.

6, Any title that includes the word 'Trump.'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
