Knight Before Dawn In Las Vegas

Bobby Knight. The Dark Knight. Gladys Knight (with or without The Pips).

None of those appear to be options for the new NHL franchise in Las Vegas. However, last week they did apply for trademarks for three nicknames: Desert Knights, Golden Knights and Silver Knights.

At least they’ve left “Hawks” out of the nickname… for now.

    In keeping with baseball/Chicago theme: (White Sox-Red Sox)

    Blackhawks – Redhawks…?

    Since they’re in the desert how about another desert creature “the Roadrunners” or if that is too cartoony the Chaparrals.

    You would really think a major sports franchise could come up with something better. Can you imagine the amount of meetings, people, hours, and money that have gone into this decision and these are the current options? haha

    Why not go with scorpions?

    Why not stick with a “Vegas” themed name that will fit them for at least a decade. The Vegas Craps!

    Just got back from Vegas Saturday. After going almost 20x, I took an 8 year respite from sin city until last week. In light of the number of homeless people sleeping and coming the strip, how about the Homeless. That would befit what I saw last week.

    Hawks are favorites to win the cup at many of the sports books. I guess the money has been rolling in on them. Kings and Caps were next.

    I know it ain’t Jersey but still “Bada Bings” has a good ring to it and fits Vegas well.

    Desert Knights? Oh man that sucks. Who wears a suit of armor into the desert? I don’t care really…just stay the heck away from anything “Hawks”.

    If Desert Knights then sport writers will write “DK” …and fans will read that as Dicks!

    Have to agree with Ganderhawk..all that time and money for this?

    Booman- sorry to hear about homeless on the strip…what the hell?

    ….as in “DK’s get shelled by Flyers 8-0” or “Habs hand the DK’s 11th straight loss”
    Fans will read DK’s as Dicks and start calling them that.
    Guys a multi billionaire and that what he comes up with…are you freaking kidding?

    Hes got a hard on for Knights. When you got that kinda jack he can do what he wants I suppose. But DK me think of Donkey Kong. I guess it’s cuz I’m a millennial

    I would go with the Vegas Vipers (better ring to it than Rattlers) . Detroit used to have a pro team called the Vipers but doesn’t exist any longer

    Vegas Bustouts

    The Las Vegas Vipers are a dodgeball team…surely they can be bought for a few autographs right?
