Colorado Rockies

Denver, Colorado, USA. Played in the National Hockey League 1976-82. The NHL franchise for Kansas City Scouts moved to Colorado in 1976. The Rockies were a poor team and finished at or near the basement of the NHL each and every year, making the playoffs only once in their 6-year existence. Fan support was dismal and the only difference between the Kansas City and Denver franchises was the fact that the Rockies lasted six rather than two seasons. The franchise had only one highlight, Don Cherry; after being dismissed by the Boston Bruins for his "too many men on the ice fiasco", Don, a major hockey personality, coached the Rockies for one colourful season. Unfortunately, Denver fans were not buying into the Rockies and the franchise was bought-out and transferred and became the New Jersey Devils in 1982.

Colourasian
A race descriptive term introduced into the vocabulary by former hockey player Alf Lewsey in 1983. Lewsey was a Consultant to the Human Right Council of British Columbia and reported to the Council on aspects of the new and revised B C Human Rights Act. In particular, he addressed the question of 'Race and Colour' designation that was never before seriously challenged. Of the one hundred recommendations filed in the report, R38 introduced the word Colourasian as a race description.
R38 : "That the council use whatever means necessary and available to effectively change public attitudes and promote tolerance. A significant start would be to disuade the media from continually using the words, 'White' to describe and identify members of the 'Caucasian' race and persuade the media to use 'Colourasian' to identify persons of bonifide African heritage rather than 'Black' as a designation. The perpetuation of the words 'White' and 'Black' in describing the two races, psychologically promotes and perpetuates racial separateness as did, 'Yellow' when describing persons of Asian ancestry and 'Red' for the Aboriginal's of North America".
Definition : Of, pertaining to, or denoting a distinctive racial grouping 
with light to dark brown skin pigmentation and genetically descended from 
African heritage.
As Alf Lewsey says, "Many people would probably agree that if they are to be identified by a couple of colours in a child's paintbox, they would prefer the descriptive words 'Colourasian' and 'Caucasian' that are much softer, kinder, and gentler than the 'hot button' opposites of 'Black' and 'White'."

Continental Cup

Started in the 1997-98 season as a replacement for the European Cup and especially for countries without no representatives in the European Hockey League. The competing teams are selected by each country's Ice Hockey Association. 
i. 1997-00  format : In 1997-98 there were 42 clubs representing 26 nations, in 1998-99 it was 48 clubs from 26 countries and in 1999-00 48 clubs participated. The tournament was played in seeded rounds of qualifying groups. The winner of each group in Round 1 joined a qualifying group in Round 2.  The winner of each group in Round 2 joined one of the three qualifying groups in Round 3.  The winner of each group in Round 3 went into the top four Final with the host club. Each group 'tournament' was played over a three day weekend (Round 1 - September, Round 2 - October, Round 3 - November and the Final in December).
ii. 2000-01 format : With the European Hockey League taking a "holiday" for the 2000-01 season, the Continental Cup became the top IIHF club competition. The format was basically the same in the 2000-01 season - 36 clubs from 27 nations competed, 3 seeded rounds of qualifying groups and then a four team Final which was held in January 2001.
iii. 2004-05 format : For this season there were 20 teams - one team per country, namely the champion of the countries* not invited to take part in the IIHF Super Six and a club from the top leagues who played in the IIHF Super Six. (*Dynamo Moscow, HKm Zvolen and Nottingham Panthers were participants but were not champions in their respective countries).
