Complete, but quite likely wrong:

Looking like NHL/NBA/MLB/NFL teams:

angels: arch - death - fallen - guardian
bears: brown - panda - polar - teddy
bills: dollar - gates - murray - rights
capitals: berlin - lima - monaco - sofia
ducks: donald - lame - mallard - peking
hawks: deficit - fish - mo - tony
kings: bb - elvis - larry - rodney
nets: extra - fishing - inter - mosquito
pirates: morgan - hook - silver - sparrow
rays: charles - gamma - manta - sting
saints: louis - paul - patrick - peter
sharks: bull - loan - pool - whale
stars: film - morning - north - rock
tigers: bengal - crouching - siberian - woods
titans: atlas - phoebe - prometheus - rhea
wizards: merlin - oz - radagast - ron

MLB: Angels - Pirates - Rays - Tigers
NBA: Kings - Hawks - Nets - Wizards
NFL: Bears - Bills - Saints - Titans
NHL: Capitals - Ducks - Sharks - Stars
