We need them to CFL this up.

Go with 'Coyotes.'

Just a nice 'off the board' pick.

Put whatever you want in front of Knights, won't matter. Everyone will call them the Knights and I'd be willing to bet that when we see the jerseys the word Knights will be huge and whatever else they call them will be in tiny letters above that. If theres a wordmark on the jersey at all.

Silver Knights is by far the best option here.

"Hookers and Blow" is still my favorite name for the first major professional sports franchise in Las Vegas.

Hooker & Blow would make good names for a mascot tandem

That would literally make Gary Bettman's head spin.

Why are they so adamant about using Knights? Does they have history with the town?

Knights are silver, not gold, aren't they?

Desert Knights is a terrible name, whether they go with it or not is to be seen. I for one hope not, I think Silver Knights or Golden Knights sounds a lot better. I am glad however they never ended up with Desert Hawks or Night Hawks which were rumoured earlier this year.
