After months of speculation, tonight we finally learned the name of the new NHL franchise in Las Vegas-the “Vegas Golden Knights”.
I have to admit at first I didn’t like the name, as “Silver Knights” and/or “Desert Knights” would have paid more homage to Nevada’s legacy as the Silver State out here in the vast desert. Also I think the two word name is a bit long, which is why Bill Foley wins points in my book for shortening the name to just “Vegas”, as locals know it, and not “Las Vegas”. But the clincher for me is the logo, I have to admit it looks pretty cool. I know I am excited to welcome Vegas’s first major league sports franchise and I can’t wait to attend a game. I’ve already asked for some Golden Knights gear for Christmas!
So now that the wait is over, what are your thoughts? Do you like the name or hate it? What about the logo? And for those who don’t like the name and/or logo, what are your suggestions?
