Interesting that it says "Vegas Hockey", dropping "Las"? Hmmm

 

Maybe...Mr. Foley mentioned, when asked in an interview a while back, that he preferred "Vegas" to "Las Vegas", although It seems to me that most of the folks that I've talked to in Las Vegas, would prefer "Las Vegas". Visually, a single letter "V" is MUCH easier to work into a logo than the dual "LV". Wouldn't totally surprise me if it ended up being "Vegas (Something) Knights".

So, black/red/gold/grey? Las Vegas shortened to just Vegas? Possible V in the logo?

 

 

Haven't we seen this before?

I was coming around to Desert Knights, but it would be nails-on-a-chalkboard bad to have the city name too short and the nickname too long.

thinking about how a box score would look online or on television, what three letters would look the best or make sense. 

 

LVK - Las Vegas Knights

VDK - Vegas Desert Knights

 

 

 

IDK - I don't know.......

to be fair, an all black and white team would be pretty cool for vegas since they are a walking circus of colors. watching hockey would be an escape from the festival of lights.

Will goalies be prevented or fined if they have any designs on their masks that incorporate anything involved with gambling or Nevada gaming?

I'm willing to bet that they will. There's potential for some ace designs, but it's a huge gamble not worth taking. OK I'll stop.

 

I like the idea of the city name being shortened to Vegas. Las Vegas Something Knights is a bit much.

So it's the Las Vegas Outlaws color scheme.

Honestly, if they take all their design cues from the Outlaws, they'll get a fair bit of my money. That's more of an NFL-caliber uniform set than most of the new sets unveiled by actual NFL teams in the 15 years since.

Looks kinda Saints-esque, no?

Nah, the red and striping that makes sense distinguishes it.

 

That is a really strong set.

I think you're over thinking this...

 

If it's Las Vegas, they'll be LV. If they're Vegas, it'll be VEG.

 

The team name wont play into it, just like TB.

Looks more like the 06-14 Ducks template...

Few tweaks away from a perfect match...  Ugh.

If so, then that makes two teams sharing a color scheme that should be using hot pink instead.

 A Vegas team was a golden opportunity to do something unique that really knocked our socks off.

 

In fairness, the creative team over at Adidas wasn't exactly starting out with a blank canvas. We'll soon see.

Great looking matchup tonight, this is how the Flames should look. Although i still say white jerseys should be home. Which reminds that the Flames home jersey from that era was amazing!
