    I'd, uh, put my money on them either being the Las Vegas Knights or Las Vegas Aces.

    If they end up being called Aces, cue the endless poker and blackjack euphemisms every time they play the Kings. "Full house here tonight." "Kings over Aces!" And hey, if Brown and others get drafted over there, "Aces full of Kings."

    I'd actually like to really see it be the Black Knights. The owner is apparently a West Point grad, and it would be a cool nod to his alma mater.

    They should be called the Vegas Bunnies after the Bunny Ranch.

    Seems like the NHL could take issue with the name, as Foley already owns Black Knight Financial. Do they want what could be perceived as a corporate branded team name?

    The Kings play at Staples Center, and basically every other team in every sport plays in an arena named after a corporate sponsor. While I see your point, I don't think the league would have as much of an issue with it as you might thing.

    . . . and the league had no issue with a team named after a big corporation's kiddie movie.

    I think there's a distinct difference between arena naming rights and team naming rights. It would go beyond jersey advertising at that point.

    I disagree that this:





    is the same as naming something generic that also happens to be a company name.
