No team name Portland's ever used should be used on Washington State soil.
I think we had the name first!
-The team was founded in 1971 as the Vancouver Nats of the Western Canada Hockey League (WCHL) but moved to Kamloops, British Columbia, to become the Kamloops Chiefs in 1973.
-In 1977 the team moved to Seattle and was renamed the Seattle Breakers.
-After the 1984–85 season, the Breakers were sold to new owners and renamed the Seattle Thunderbirds.
