I think this is great news!

I thought it was a dumb, hastily prepared name right from the start. Hopefully they are forced to change it and come up with something good.

This article has the London Knights franchise valuation at $23 million. I assume you pay them a quarter of that, this all goes away.

You assume they want a one time payment. They could very well be asking for a yearly payment for as long as the Vegas franchise exists.

Besides that study is a joke. If the Hitmen are worth around $70 million, the Knights are worth twice that.

Well on the ice there is no fuel for that yet. Off the ice though, they need another Sportsnet-like power point presentation.

Thank you.

I'd be loving what they're doing as an expansion franchise, but they are in our division and currently holding down the top spot by 7 points. They need to piss off now.

Course they have been pounding the crap out of the division while leaving us untouched... so Go Knights Go?

Why would you suggest "Cavaliers"? There are literally thousands of names to pick for a team and I absolutely hate it when a new team comes along and choses the name of another pro team. That should never happen.

I don't think so. Hitmen brand is huge and popular worldwide. Hitmen have one of the best logos and names in all of sports.
