Las Vegas NHL Expansion

Recommended Posts

I had low expectations and still came out disappointed.

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. 

 

He did put some thought into ripping off the Army Black Knights.

 

Any chance they could sue, force Vegas to change? (ala the Jaguars or Ravens)

*patiently waiting to see Chris' reaction on the main site*

Anyway, this is what I thought that it would turn out to be since the beginning - a great logo set (although the secondary brings it down), but an absolutely terrible name. Vegas Golden Knights? That's probably the worst thing that could have turned out. If you're going to pick Golden Knights, at least use your full city name.

I dig the logo. It'll probably look pretty sweet on a cap. Just wish the colour scheme was different. Far too similar to Boston and Pittsburgh , in my opinion.

Colours look much better in this version:

Grey still looks teal to me.

The name's horrible but the logos are ok. Especially after the explanation of the secondary.

Actually, that seemed like an Arrested Development scene. Where's GOB when you need him?

They got the team in June, how the hell do you not get a wordmark together so people can rep their city? Bettman doesn't care he's on a plane full of liquid cash, but...I just don't get how you botch this but maybe you only hire hockey people and no real marketing team that know the first thing about sports branding, ugh.

Tell you what, Mr. Army Boner had better secure the rights to Private Snafu, because he's the perfect human mascot for this organization.

I do like the alternate logo.  It'll look good as a shoulder logo and the little bit of red will be a nice pop.  It is weird that you have gray in the primary logo and not the alt, and red in the alt but not the primary.

Can't wait for you guys to post what you think the unis will look like. 

 

I read the posts to my bro in law while we were watching. We were busting up. Comedy Central, hire these guys for your next roast.

Yeah I just got into the site to see that. Still, the Vegas (sans Las) thing is so bad. It feel so minor league. But the Mighty Ducks rebranded, I imagine "Vegas" will do the same in a few years.
