It's gonna be a bird wearing a shiny Knight's helmet.

 

The team logo is going to be a bird -named Ace - with neon plumage that is wearing a metallic silver knight's helmet and an Elvis Presley-inspired jumpsuit. Ace will be depicted piloting an F-117 stealth aircraft that is dropping a pair of dice and several poker chips from its bomb bay.

Of all the names they are thinking about Nighthawks. Damn, that's not a good name for an new franchise if there's another one with a much storied history and founding member of the league. 

 

Night Owls, Atoms and Aces sound great IMHO. Even Black Knights, if not a bit generic, would have been better that Nighthawks.

Well, if a variation on hawks is the final three, then the NHL has more than likely OK'd them.  While the nighthawks name and bird logo would separate them from Chicago, I'm not necessarily sure it's enough.  

 

Because (something) hawks lends itself to being shortened as 'Hawks and this could cause problems in everyday discussion, among fans, players, broadcasters, commentators, studio anchors, branding issues.  

 

Even if there is no trademark, I can see Chicago fighting back on this a bit, they could argue that the name is too confusing when abbreviated.  Chicago certainly has the clout where the NHL may hear them out. The NHL doing anything about it though remains to bee seen. 

 

I know Army and a couple other teams where not okay with Knights or Black Knights, I would suspect the LA Kings were not thrilled with it either, being as the proposed color scheme would be 2/3 of LA's colors and probably a medieval knight of some sort.  

 

I was starting to like Las Vegas Owls or Night Owls.  

 

 

You know what just call 'em the Las Vegas Bulldogs. Sure it may not a name associated with a professional sports team, but it's so common, I don't think there would be much legal pushback.

As much as I dislike Nighthawks it's a hell of a lot better than Desert Hawks. And there is no chance they will be called the Red Hawks when we already have a blackhawks and a red wings in the league 

problem solved. hawk wings

I bet Foley wants NightHawks just so fans will shorten it to just "Nights" and then he can claim a small victory.

*remembers he wants to put an NHL team in Las Vegas*

 

Oh wait, I guess he can.

Why can't it just be the "Las Vegas Hockey Club"? This way no one is disappointed because lets face it. We're going to disappointed.

 

How about the Las Vegas NHL's? Hey it worked wonders for the Baltimore CFL club, amirrite.

I'd be all for simply "Las Vegas". It's a big enough brand on its own. Done.
