The Philadelphia Arrows were the first pro hockey team in the history of the city, starting play in the CAHL in 1927 at Philadelphia Arena, which was the pre-cursor to the Spectrum. They were also the first of a few teams in Philly history to not be that great on the ice. The Arrows lost in the first round or missed the playoffs entirely in 7 of their 8 seasons in what was a generally a six team league. They did have one very successful season in 1932-33 when they won 29 of 48 games and advanced to the league finals, coming up short to the Boston Cubs. The team would change its name to the Ramblers in 1935-36 as it became a New York farm club, through 1941.
