Vegas Golden Knights

Vegas Golden Knights

What do you guys think of the name and the logo?



Personally I think both the name and logo are stupid. Reminds me of the high school names and logos.

Super cheesy and minor leagueish. I give them 10 years at most before they move, I don't think hockey will work in Vegas. It's failed/underperformed in numerous warm weather cities (Phoenix, Atlanta, Miami)

For example look at the Las Vegas Wranglers a defunkt ECHL team from Las Vegas.

That logo is considerably more professional and definitely more engaging.

Vegas receives about 3-3.5 million visitors per month. The gamble is can these visitors can sustain the team?

Of course they won't sustain a team. Most people don't even like hockey.

For Toronto fans it will still be cheaper to fly and rent a hotel room than to watch a home game.

Well the way I see it working is that, people travel to Vegas for Vegas, and maybe some people Who travel to Vegas will travel to Vegas to see their hockey team play in Vegas as opposed to whatever other reason they would travel to Vegas at any particular time for.

Years ago when I was doing casino junketeering in Vegas for a junketeering operation, I got a call from non-less than Donald Sterling suggesting we put together A Clippers game in LA combined with the post game junket to Vegas for Highline gamblers.


It was kind of a stupid idea, the few gamblers in LA who would've been clipper fans could've just gone to a damn game and gone to Vegas without the junket.

Not that ever idea Donald Sterling every had was stupid; and he always did like the idea of gambling with other peoples money.

I kind of see NHL junkets to Vegas from all across North America as possibly more viable than Donald Sterling's idea.

I think that's why they put an NHL team in Vegas in the first place.

I guess it might be worth the gamble.
