Why not just Knights?

I have to say team names have been shocking in the last few years.

Isn't that a Gladiator helmet and not a knight helmet?

The London Knights own the rights to the name in Canada and they wouldn't be allowed to use it or play in Canada...apparently :rolleyes:

I give you the Baltimore CFL Colts. Perhaps the worst name ever, just to try and retain that heritage. Stallions seemed to work fine afterwards.

Golden Knights. So bad. Lions would have worked well.

Yes because in Canada we had the Rough Riders and Roughriders in the same league:rolleyes:.
Should have just called themselves the K-nights and been done with it.

Another reason to go to Vegas and watch my 2nd favourite sport. :cigar:

It'll be just 'Vegas Knights' in due course I'm sure.
And I like that play on words too.

Yah. Maybe dropping the "las" was a good idea.
To easy to be a sports writer with an American accent.
Loss vegas. Say it. Loss. Las. After a terrible first year that nick name could stick.
Maybe that is a small reason why it was dropped.

Las't place vegas.
Anyways they will suck for a long time.

Where's the arena? Is it close enough to catch a game during a weekend jaunt to the strip?

I may have to go on record sayin they will be better then the 2017 Nucks. With the projected goaltending of Fleury and Lack there already better.

They will also draft smart with low contracts because first year team the seats will be full. 2018 will be big year as the owner has ton of money and huge names on the market for free agency.

Yah. But anything is better than the nucks these day. I don't see an expansion team being a top team in the NHL real quick.
Maybe Kassian, the Kane's and others all want to play there. A drinking team with a hockey problem.

I think they will turn this into a successful franchise very quickly. When you have a ton of money and are able to take on low contracts for an opening year it will speed up the process. Then in 2018 you offer someone like Price a piece of the strip and the team will be become good quite quickly
