Hockey Quiz No. 8

I know how much people like these hockey quizzes. It's one of the more popular search terms that steers readers to Hound Central 4.0. That's why I have so much fun putting them together.

Know what else is fun? Announcing that Steve G was the only one of three people to successfully navigate the monthly maze of hockey head-scratchers. Good job, Steve.

As promised, the logo was the tricky question. It showed the Oakland Seals, not the California Seals. The full blue circle was the clue.

Let's see how everyone does with this one. Good luck.

Name this logo

Kinda creepy isn't it? Kinda easy, too?

Still, you'll have to know your current hockey events, so to speak, to know this one. But, that eye, it is pretty creepy.

Alright, I have some time so here goes:

Logo:
Lake Erie Monsters
(great logo)

Word Association:
Trade Day Winner = Calgary (short term), Phoenix (long term)

Olli Jokinen = welcome to the playoffs....let's see what you can do

April Tee Times = ALREADY??! I can't wait to go golfing (ha ha)
Actually, there are a lot of teams that will have to wait until the final week to book 'em.

Trade Day Loser = Montreal (didn't do enough)

Manny Legace = he's better than Gerber, Tellqvist and a lot of other goalies currently playing. It's too bad he may never be a starter again.

Hockey Scrambled:
