Vegas Golden Knights Thread

Name is corny Desert Knights would have been better.  Colours so so but better than blue and green.  Logo not bad but again more interesting than a rectangle (rink) with a hockey stick tossed in to form a stylized "C".   All in all give it a C+.

It was a failure because the owner gave a cliched response to why the picked he team name and they booed Bettman?!  

 

Wow that sure makes a lot sense....


Did I stutter?

It was a lesson in failure. This is just a sign of things to come.

Well how you get failure from something so irrelevant is beyond me....I'll just leave it at that.

I would have preferred The Las Vegas Knights but that's already a name of a Junior Hockey Team. So the other options I would have liked are the Las Vegas Templars or Las Vegas Crusaders

50 goal scorer in 07 and definition of the word "all-star" Danny "hot-wheels" Heatley leaves the strip-club to captain the team. Jarrett Stoll requests a trade from his dealer's house to form the leadership core with Heater. 

 

Thereon Fleury's coaching career begins.

I literally explained how it was a failure. It's not my fault you can't accept the reality of it. There's a good reason that city hasn't had major sports teams ( USFL, XFL and CFL teams don't really count).


You did get one thing right: I want this to fail. Horribly. I want Gary Bettman to crash with it too.

I can remember when the Canucks came into the league they were laughed at as well. Our great friends in Toronto and Montreal as well as other teams fought tooth and nail to keep Vancouver from getting an NHL team...things never change just stay the same.

The US Army has launched an investigation into the Vegas Golden Knights use of the nickname "Golden Knights".

Considering all the factors, it's tolerable. 

 

1. Had to include Knights in the name due to Foley's other companies

2. Couldn't use just Knights as London has a copyright in place

3. Having four words in the name doesn't roll off the tongue, hence the omitting of the Las

4. Vegas is synonymous with gambling (cash, riches, GOLD)

 

The colours remind me a bit of San Jose and/or London, oddly enough, with a little bit of variation. 

2 does not matter as different leagues and you can not copyright a name for anything but your own league like I have said BC Lions detroit Lions same game different leagues

It does actually, they own the trademark for Canada and weren't about to sell it..

 

“The London Knights own the name in Canada and to acquire the name from London is not economically feasible,” Foley said. “In the U.S., ‘Knights’ are fine. But we can’t use it in Canada.”

It's not the best it it's also not the worst.

 

I know one idiotic team with a orca on their jersey which has very little to do with the current ownership group.

 

I for one am jacked about this team. Not being from Vancouver I'd rather see a game in Vegas in November than Vancouver (sorry still love Van).

 

Cant say I disagree. Our Orca logo is one of the worst in the NHL
