  1. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    Foley basically said this whole time, "I love the Army, I want my team to be like the Army, I'm naming my team after the Army." While no one would look at the Vegas Golden Knights and confuse them for the Golden Knights parachute team, I don't think it's a stretch for someone to think that the Vegas team was somehow endorsed by the Army, especially alongside Foley's comments. That said, I'm no trademark lawyer, so I have no idea if that matters.
  2. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I agree that they'd be missing out on revenue and brand protection. That said, I think that Foley is stubborn enough that he'll just keep using the vegasishockey.com domain no matter what the team name ends up being.
  3. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    The Silver Knights domains all moved, too.
  4. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    The Knights were never actually asked and don't hold a trademark on just "Knights" for hockey in Canada anyway, even though people said otherwise. Foley always wanted "______ Knights."
  5. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    That was the path I went with when I first wrote about the possibility of Desert Knights as the name back in August but I no longer think it's an actual connection. The Silver Knights and Desert Knights domain names are also currently listed as for sale by their current owners. Foley (or people in his org) have said they own those domains in the past but I think he's full of it and they're actually held by speculators. I think they're going to keep using the vegasishockey.com domain, not have one with the team name. He's just not willing to pay speculators.
  6. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    I'm already mentally composing the OITGDNHL chapter on the naming of this team. Depending on how this all pans out, some of the more absurd parts of this story haven't even been told yet.
  7. Teams In The Wrong Stadium

    The Flint Firebirds had to play their penultimate home game of the season in Saginaw when the ice plant in Flint broke down. The announcement was made just hours before the game and hardly anyone was there. The Flint crew ran most of the in-arena stuff but on their one power play, the scoreboard graphic was Saginaw's power play package.
  8. Strickland says the Coyotes are staying put no matter the result of the vote tomorrow. https://twitter.com/andystrickland/status/351686847086342144 Not sure I believe it. If the league lets its bluff get called, they'll never get to bully a municipality into an arena deal again.
  9. http://www.azcentral...yotes-deal.html And then there's the fact that the deal completely fell apart and got put back together in a matter of hours. http://www.foxsportsarizona.com/nhl/phoenix-coyotes/story/Glendale-city-council-to-force-July-2-vo?blockID=915399&feedID=3545
  10. Seattle's mayor says Kypreos is wrong, Key Arena will be ready. http://www.twitter.com/mayormcginn/status/348111881749266433 "Will" be ready?
  11. So Kypreos says that Glendale will not be giving RSE the money they want... But also that Key Arena won't be ready this season so the team is staying put anyway. http://kuklaskorner.com/hockey/comments/early-morning-tweets-bode-poorly-for-the-coyotes I'd thought that second part had already been debunked but even if it's true, I find it hard to believe that the NHL would say "Okay, fine, you called our bluff, we'll stick around." They'll find an even worse place to put the team for next year.
  12. I'm just going to directly quote @seangentille here...
