I’m not quite sure that metaphor works.
After all, if you’re looking for an NHL team that parallels Luke Skywalker, who grew up on the desert planet of Tatooine, wouldn’t you go with a team literally from the desert? If you want plucky underdogs, how about the team that has made it out of the first round of the playoffs just once in their history with a team name that is literally a relative of a dog?
