As somebody pointed out, if you take the V out of the logo it looks like the tip of...um...I think we all know what.

I actually like nothing about it.  And I agree with @Puck_Pun:  the logo looks kind of rubbish.

 

Not thrilled with the name,  but I'm sure some junior high graphic artist could have come up with a more interesting logo.   Looks like some owner of a car wash in Bonnieville ,Kentucky got his uncle  to draw him up a nifty picture for his 2 rub downs for 1 sale.

Having a good logo is important for a team because it'll be on the front of all the team's jerseys, so you can't ignore a crappy logo like in other sports- it's front and centre in everything associated with the team.

I get the "V" part for Vegas, but reminds me of the Greek and Roman Spartan helmet's. The colors are meh.

The Las Vegas organization released the following information.

 

The team’s colors – steel grey, gold, red and black – reflect the community and the focus of the team:

  • Steel grey represents strength and durability
  • Nevada is the largest producer of gold in the United States, it is a highly-valued precious metal and is a color seen in the Las Vegas terrain
  • Red is from the Vegas skyline, the desert and the beauty of the Red Rock canyons; red is also a color associated with the readiness to serve
  • Black represents power and intensity

Drawing on themes associated with knights, the helmet in the team’s logo includes a ‘V’ to represent Las Vegas. The secondary logos include swords that create the star from the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign.

Has there been any word as to why they dropped Las from the team name and are just the Vegas Golden Knights? Kind of odd in my opinion. Could you imagine if they did that with other cities; Angeles Kings, York Rangers, Jersey Devils, Tampa Lighting...

What they should have said about their color selection was:

  • Silver - Because we think it looks cool and gangs usually like silver + they buy lots of merch
  • Red - Because ya gotta have some red
  • Gold - Because it's dope
  • Black - Because everything looks good in black

 

:)

 

I do think the league should block at least one of those colors to avoid stepping on the Senators uniforms. They (Knights) have a logo of a medieval helmet (which already looks similar to the Senators logo) and then to have all three Senators colors in the uniform as well? Not on my watch. I'd say "no red" or "no gold", take your pick. You can be silver, gold, and black or you can be silver, red, and black, but you're not going to look exactly like the Ottawa Senators and have the same medieval helmet for a logo. That's infringing on the Senators intellectual property.

“There’s going to be a massive player redistribution before the expansion draft in the weeks leading up to it,” McPhee said. “We understand teams are going to try to not give us anything, and that’s the way expansion goes. There are a few teams that have expansion stress and we might be able to get a good player from them, and there’ll be some teams that don’t have anything and rather than take a bad contract we’ll take a throwaway pick.”

 

So there you go basically no way in hell will they take Mcdud.......

Yeah, but they will still need to take some Salary Cap in order to make the Cap Floor.  I'd expect any over paid contract they take on will be near the end of its length at a price where they don't pay much.

      Why?? Black Knights don't matter!??

      Quebec City and Hamilton aren't the only places that need a new commissioner. The whole sport does, and quite frankly, I think the fact that a hockey team is going into Las Vegas is exhibit A, considering how well Phoenix has done...   But yeah, I agree that this whole thing is becoming a total debacle. First there was the statement from the London Knights that they'd try to block the use of "Knights" in Canada, and Foley seems to be ignoring it. Now, this. Does this whole thing have a

      Yeah, that was always the reasoning.  Although I always thought that was the goofiest thing I've heard since hockey in south Florida.   If you don't want the team associated with gambling, don't put it in Las Vegas.

      I remember when you first joined the board...just an innocent hockey-loving- girl-next-door type.   Now you've climbed into the ditch with the rest of us.
