I Need Your Help, MHH

I have a request of the good people at MHH. I hope that you don't think that I'm spamming the site with a request for help on another hockey site.

For the second year, I will be "covering" the Avs for Hockey PrimeTime. Last year, the site was one main page with a separate thread for "fan bloggers" for each team, but the fan blogs weren't separated out by team. About a month into the season, I was bumped to the main page, where my Avs blogs appeared. It worked well, but it wasn't the most "user-friendly" site on the internet when it came to finding analysis of one specific team. After a re-design, the site is re-launching with a style not unlike what SB Nation offers. There will hopefully be a Hockey PrimeTime site to cover each team, and they've asked me to again admin the Avs blog for HPT.

I should probably give you a little background on HPT before I go on. The brains behind the whole operation is Samuel P. Woo, a Devils blogger that you may recognize from HockeyBuzz (don't hate him because of that). The site was first launched nearly 3 years ago. Sam somehow managed to recruit bloggers from around the country to serve as "Fan Correspondents" for each team. In the past couple of years, there has been good activity, though there isn't quite a blogger for each time yet. Blake Benzel started as the Minnesota Wild Fan Correspondent for HPT (he is now kind of the main guy for the fan blogs, while Sam covers the entire NHL; Chris Brownstone is a Leafs blogger that helps Blake direct the various correspondents). You can view a sample of what the new HPT will look like at Blake's blog, Wild Nation. Blake was the one that found me on FanNation talking about hockey, and he recruited me to the site about a year and a half ago.

So here's the deal. With each team getting its own HPT site dedicated to it, the correspondents are charged with coming up with the name for their blogs. I want something creative; something that screams "Avalanche", but isn't as dull as "Tales From the Pepsi Center" or something along those lines. The best that I've come up with for a name for the site is "The Unipron" - something that probably only an Avalanche fan would understand, but one that would make for a good backstory. Unfortunately, I don't know the "legend" behind the Unipron or how the term came about. What I would like are 3 things:

1) Do you like the suggestion of "The Unipron"?

2) If you know the backstory, would you share where the term came from?

3) If you don't like it, do you have a creative suggestion?

Again, I hope I'm not coming across as if I'm spamming MHH. This is just something that I'm a little stuck on. Thanks in advance.
