    What does everyone think of the name of the new Vegas NHL team "The Golden Knights"

    I am not a fan of the New name but gives me another reason to go to Vegas.

    I suggested the Las Vegas Degenerates. Their mascot would be a 65 year old chain smoking lady with a bucket of quarters.

    Terrible name but most new team names are. A new reason to go to Vegas for the next couple years before the novelty wears off & they move the team to Seattle.

    Arizona will move before Vegas.

    Vegas will sell out as a novelty. Over time casinos will buy the tickets and hand them out like candy.

    Won't be leaving anytime soon

    I think the name is stupid and the logo is gay as fuck...if they don't fix that freeway interchange off 15 and do something about traffic congestion in the area those 15k local season tickets they sold won't be renewed. Word is that it was a fucking mess down there for the unveiling. The practice facility and team offices are actually being built now in front of Red Rock casino here in Summerlin and will be including rinks for youth hockey and public skating

    Good enough name, better than things like Thunder, Heat, Lightning, etc. Thing I find most interesting is how they are the Vegas Golden Knights, as opposed to the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Right choice, I'd say, no need for a 4 word team name. Kind of like Golden State Warriors.

    It may be kind of gay but I'd have thought 'Renegades' would have been pretty cool...giving the city the theme of Rebels, Renegades, Raiders (if they move here)

    Yotes have a deal in the works for a new arena they will share with ASU. ASU oddly is playing NCAA D1 hockey now. Granted this year was a dumpster fire as they try to ramp up to compete with the likes of Denver and others in the western US. Arena would also be used for ASU Bball and big enough to hold major events. Yotes chances of moving went down a lot in the past couple weeks because of it. The Arena will be accessible via light rail which Glendale isn't. Traffics a bitch to drive across town to a game during the week. This will help them majorly as they are on a major youth movement now including a GM who's a child prodigy trying to be the Theo Epstein of hockey as he's only 28.
