Previous here at SinBin.vegas we’ve been a fan of the name Las Vegas Silver if/when the NHL announces they are indeed coming to Vegas. The name works on so many levels and quite frankly, it just seems to fit in the pantheon of professional sports team names.
Las Vegas Rat Pack
I’ve stated in my bio that there’s nothing I love more than the city of Las Vegas. There’s nothing that screams Vegas more than the Rat Pack, so why not name the team after the iconic legends.
The logo design that was presented to us is incredible. The jersey idea… not so much. We’ll have to work on that.
I can already see the five mascots hanging around the arena only to finally get on the ice for the 2nd intermission “Rat (Pack) Race,” in which the caricatures race from once side of the rink to the other.
I’m not even a fan of that type of music (guess I’m too young), but there’s no denying that there’s nothing more Vegas than the Rat Pack.
The team and the league are likely to shy away from gambling, so Aces, Blackjacks, Luck, Chips, etc. are all unlikely. The name Black Knights still leads as it’s The Creator’s preferred name, but there’s just something about redefining the name Rat Pack that’s incredibly appealing.
But seriously, Las Vegas Rat Pack is the best name I’ve heard yet, and until someone beats it, I’ll do anything I can to make it a reality.
