If each NLL team were represented by a Tim Horton's doughnut, here's what they might be:
Calgary Roughnecks: Management took out the two top ingredients, but still believe it will be as good as ever
Colorado Mammoth: Best selling doughnut for years, but doesn't taste very good. (Compare with Stealth doughnut)
Edmonton Rush: Undercooked and yucky for years, but after adding a new ingredient a year ago, is now quite good
Minnesota Swarm: Plain glazed. No sprinkles, no creamy filling, nothing fancy, but if there's nothing else available, it'll do.
Washington Stealth: Best tasting doughnut last year, but nobody buys it. (Compare with Mammoth doughnut)
Boston Blazers: A doughnut with Chocolate, Gummy bears, and other things that are great on their own, but don't go well together.
Buffalo Bandits: A big bear claw. Soft creamy fillings are for wimps.
Philadelphia Wings: An old stale cruller. People fondly remember back years ago when it tasted really good.
Rochester Knighthawks: Strange doughnut with some of the best quality ingredients. Sometimes they mix properly and taste great, other times you take a bite and get a mouthful of flour.
Toronto Rock: Was one of the most popular doughnuts for a while, then new management changed the recipe and made it doughy and tasteless. After the former management was brought back, it's getting better.
New York/Orlando Titans: A great Doughnut, but it was only around for a limited amount of time.
