Las Vegas NHL Expansion

Recommended Posts

FWIW most people just refer to the city as "Vegas", like "Philly" with Philadelphia or "A.C." with Atlantic City

What an atrocious logo. That would get laughed out of the Concepts forum. And I have no words for how badly they botched the unveiling of that piece of crap. The NHL continues to be a joke.

It will be interesting to see how the red plays in with it not being on the primary logo.

 

I hope the jerseys are gold though with the name. Blue Jackets, blue jerseys. Red Wings, red jerseys.

What if we put that star in a roundel?  Will that make it better? :lol:

The logos aren't bad. I like the creativity of the primary logo, all though as others have stated, I wish the gold were more vibrant.

 

Also, have the jerseys been revealed by chance? The video isn't working on my laptop at the moment.

It's disappointing that it's not a knight's helmet.  I assume it's supposed to resemble the Corinthian Pallas Athena helmet that West Point uses in order to satisfy Foley's obsession.

They even botched the language at the bottom of the logo page:

 

"nhl.com/goldenknights is the official Web site of the Las Vegas."

Only name and logos. No jerseys yet.

Yawn. What a bumble of a release from having nothing but a logo and no wordmark to picking such a terrible :censored:ing name. I mean, I'd prefer boring over lame, this is both of those things. Seems like Foley's team didn't think about branding because they had a building and were more concerned with other things like selling tickets figuring people would come regardless. 

 

I'm sure they'll get past it, not like other teams haven't had craptastic iconography but..just seems like such a low bar to hurdle and they tripped. 

 

Also, not sure exactly who that MC was that was hosting the event tonight but they really flubbed that too. Surely there are no shortage of showmen in Vegas who would've really done it up a notch for them.

That is one bizarre (and unattractive) shade of gray. And way too dark a logo - three darkish colors competing against one another (especially since the gold is on the dark side).

 

It's not a terrible logo, but it's close. Poorly designed, to be honest.

No. Incompetence deserves to be ridiculed.

The logos shape is good, but the slate grey and dark gold ruin it. They should have lightened the gold like on the cap. 

 

It could be worse though. 

 

The secondary is horrible though.

I really like the word mark.  I kinda like the secondary if only because the red helps it pop a bit.  Both of those marks represent Vegas to me.

 

The primary is nicely done but so bland when isolated like on the website and has no connection to Las Vegas - it's purely an homage by Foley to his background.
