Merger[edit]

The Walleye and Storm is technically one franchise; the team will change the nickname and colors after the arena is complete and is playing. All ECHL championships won by the Storm are officially in the Walleye's record book, similar to the Wheeling ECHL team's name change (Thunderbirds to Nailers). The new ownership group of the Walleye took over during the final year of the Storm, so this is one team, one franchise. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.154.130.28 (talk) 11:58, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Please make sure there is a consensus before merging articles. Flibirigit (talk) 16:48, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
I do not believe that the two should be merged because they are two completely different teams. Yes a Toledo, Ohio franchise is a member of the ECHL even during voluntary suspension, but there are new owners and a completely new front office and staff (with the exception of Nick Vitucci as head coach). This is not the Cincinnati Cyclones who have had the same team identity since 1991 although spent time in several different leagues, this is a franchise that is completely different then the one that it is replacing. To merge all the information from both articles into one will make the article too clustered with separate articles needed for team history, records, stats, etc. I believe that we should leave it be.

I agree with Rik - leave it be, this is not the same team. New owners, new arena, new name, new colors, new "family friendly" attitude. The only thing in most peoples mind that's the same about these two teams is the franchise paperwork. Acronjsmith (talk) 05:58, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
The Storm article should be merged into the Walleye article as a Franchise History section to keep it consistant with other hockey franchises and also showcase the rich hockey history of the Toledo frachise.Bhockey10 (talk) 06:50, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
I talked to the director of media relations for the Walleye and they'll be honoring the history of the Storm as their own, so they will be the same franchise. 66.93.176.114 (talk) 14:59, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Walleye Coach Template[edit]

Removed; it is unnecessary when there is only one coach on the list so far. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.54.38.97 (talk) 23:45, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Wings affiliation confirmed[edit]

I'm not sure where to add the source: http://www.freep.com/article/20090619/SPORTS05/906190436/1053/SPORTS05/Alex+Ovechkin+has+fun+beating+Red+Wings++Pavel+Datsyuk+ -- MichiganCharms (talk) 18:20, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

The Blackhawks official website just reported that the team has signed an affiliation deal with the Walleye.[1]. I am not sure wheter the Wings are still the Walleye's affiliate, or if the two are sharing the team. Actually, I think they are both affilates of the team.[2] --  StarScream1007  ►Talk  15:40, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
