Omaha AkSarBen Knights

With the history behind the name, great choice for the Flames new farm team. Fantastic logo as well.

That's an awesome name, and especially an awesome symbol.

But I do wonder how long the 'Ak-Sar-Ben' word will be tagged into the name when it is talked about? I can see people just eventually calling them the Omaha Knights, as it's just easier to say.

The Knights have one hell of an alum. Gordie Howe played 51 games for the Omaha Knights back in '45-'46. Granted it's a new team, but it appears to be a rebirth of the old one. And Terry Sawchuk. Was Omaha Detroit's development team I take it?

I really like the way they incorporated the "flaming C" into the logo. Very sharp.

I would venture to guess that this team will be referred to simply as the Omaha Knights in everyday conversation.

A very awesome logo. I love how the back of the helmet has the same shape as the flaming "C", very cool.

I swear when I saw this thread I though somebody was butchering AK Bars Kazan and somehow planning to say something about the infamous Ruslan Zanullin deal and his chances of joining the Flames farm club "or something like that".

Yeah, I thought it was some sort've amalgam team of London, AK Bars Kazan and Omaha, figured someone was trying to create another ridiculous dream team.

WICKED logo; 10x better than the bush league RRs logo.

And for all the bashing people are giving AkSarBen or whatever, people will still refer to them as just the Knights. I think it's an interesting name.

I hope that sportsnet airs some Ak Sar Ben games out west here instead of that horrid combination of Leafs, Bulldogs, Moose and Roadrunners... eck... Is it just me or are those 4 teams amongst the most boring in the AHL? Im actually serious when I say that, they dont have any high end stars really in there lineups.

I actually love that we have a farm team again though now, also I agree, they need there own set of jerseys, like the Phantoms, they got a nice set of Jerseys compared to the Flyers.

Actually, I can see most people around the area eventually just calling them the Ak-Sar-Ben Knights and dropping the 'Omaha'. Not officially of course. As for the Ak-Sar-Ben being ********...it's a long, long part of Omaha history...silly? Yeah...but think about how many historic sports names would be '********' if they never existed and then some new team decided to start using it. Red Sox? Yeah, socks are sure intimidating. Lakers? What the hell is a Laker? Knickerbockers? Ak-Sar-Ben is a fantastic addition to the name and will immediately be identifiable to the target fans of the franchise.

Can't wait for the new Ak-Sar-Ben and Iowa rivalry to start.
