BluPuk

Vegas gets hockey....

Recommended Posts

This will be the first and only world class sports team that Vegas has - and it will be a good one. For a mere half a billion you get to pilfer the cupboards of all other 30 teams for players.

 

I think the Leafs should seriously consider getting a whole new franchise....  the New Leafs !!

 

Let's see: The Vegas Vagrants? The Blackjacks? The Goodfellas? The Gamblers? The Victors? The Aces?

 

Every team logo I come up with has a pair of dice in it.... uniform colour: silver, gold and green.

LOL hf101, the colours were in reference to the colour of money and precious metals. The whole post was tongue-in-cheek. Sorry :blushing:

Actually @hf101 is not far off.  The leading speculation is the Las Vegas Black Nights.  Owner Bill Foley is reportedly smitten with the name and is attributing a fair bit of it to his alma mater, the US Military Academy, not to mention Foley's the owner of Black Knight Financial Services.

 

If this indeed a reality, let the Monty Python jokes begin.....

If they're bad for 10 years, they can be called the Craps.

Well @pilldoc asked for the new forum yesterday.  I'm just proposing the name and colors. As others have also said the owner wants Black Knights for a name.    I have to think that will cause some type of racial concerns -- just because it can.  I think also that Las Vegas Knights has a good ring to it.  I think the colors proposed by BluPuk are also reasonable except they are the colors of Dallas.  The Yotes may be somewhat close in color to the ones I proposed.  But hey, I proposed them as they are kinda HF.net's colors  :5726ba4ad74b2_blowingakiss:

 

I think there will be a lot of Fan Deals to Vegas the first few years to help put fans in the seats.  Kind of a great thing though go to a game and then take a shuttle downtown to the casinos.

In a few weeks after I move, I am going to start a little project for summer fun.

 

Are we only getting 1 expansion team?

 

I am going to go through all 30 teams and try to project who gets protected and who does not, including prospects with pro experience and try to narrow down a team Vegas will end up with.

 

It will be kind of like predicting an entry draft, but with twists hehe

While you are brainstorming this idea consider the option of creating a page under "FanPages" for this project if you like too.  Send me a PM if this interests you.

at the end of next year do you want to have an expansion draft here on HF.net?  That would be kind of neat to do.... i like your idea.

But after that, heck yes

nope.  They will be the third pick and can finish no lower than 6th.

 

Quote

How will the 2017 draft lottery work?
The Las Vegas franchise will be given the same odds in the 2017 draft lottery as the team finishing with the third-fewest points during the 2016-17 regular season. This means it will choose no lower than sixth in the first round. Las Vegas then will select third in each subsequent round of the draft unless there is a trade.

Hopefully, after about a season or two when the 'novelty' wears off, this won't be the same picture we will be seeing......DURING a game....  :shifty:

Las Vegas NHL team name reportedly down to Nighthawks, Red Hawks or Desert Hawks

I'm kinda of partial to the Las Vegas Nighthawks ... BUT ....we already have a  ____Hawks as in Blackhawks.  Too similar IMO.  I know years ago the AHL used to have to Admirals teams but that was because of the AHL and IHL merging.  The Norfolk Admirals (AHL) and the Milwaukee Admirals (IHL)

 

Sooo does the NHL really need another Hawks team????

Nope.

But I do have to say the NightHawks choice has the makings for a really cool logo, especially if they choose to combine a stealth and a hawk.

Nighthawks.

Color me unimpressed.

Too similar sounding to Blackhawks.

 

Nevada is known for their peregrines (type of falcon)....use that name.

 

Nevada Silver Peregrines.

Nevada Peregrines / Las Vegas Peregrines.

 

The NHL's offices seriously need some infusion of people with creativity and imagination.

I can deal with Vipers. I had a similar thought. Diamondbacks. Doubles over as they can have a nice Diamondback rattlesnake as their logo's or a diamond on a card? haha

 

Anything with hawks is a waste at this point.
