Las Vegas team name

Vegas Golden Knights... not "Las Vegas". Just "Vegas".

Weird. I think the logo looks alright. I just think it's stupid that they dropped the "Las".

Apparently it's all to disassociate the team to gambling. Black Aces I heard was a popular name, but again related to gambling. It'll be interesting to see how pro sports does in the gambling mecca of the world. How long til flat nose Tony tells a goalie to throw the game or else? haha

I think just "Knights" would have been better, but I wonder if the London Knights of the OHL had something to do with it.
