Unveil date pushed back from around 8th to “later in September.”
It'd be nice if they had the rebrand done by the draft. It'd be a little bush of this league to have a non-expansion team known simply as "Vancouver" drafting players.
I just hope it's not the Ravens.
Don't get me wrong, I actually liked the Ravens name and logo and wished that that team never departed.
However, in April 2003, the Vancouver Ravens (9-7) were able to bump the Albany Attack (8-8) (currently Vancouver Stealth) from playoff contention because the New Jersey Storm pulled that Ginny stunt (*) in their final game which was against the Vancouver Ravens. Vancouver quickly pummeled Ginny thus basically giving Vancouver a free-ride into the playoffs (By defeating Vancouver earlier, Albany had the tie-breaker over Vancouver).
Albany, that year, started a dismal 2-6, but they were on fire going 6-2 the second half of the season. Had they gotten into the playoffs, they might actually have won it all and that might have been the turn-around necessary to keep the team in Albany at least for another season.
So, to me, it just seems wrong that the Albany Attack would be, 15 years later, rechristened as the Vancouver Ravens.
Goaltender Ginny Capicchioni became the first woman to compete in the National Lacrosse League, playing nearly 12 minutes for the New Jersey Storm in its season finale yesterday at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J.
Capicchioni allowed 6 goals on 13 shots, finishing with 7 saves in less than 12 minutes in an 18-9 loss to the Vancouver Ravens.
They've already said it won't be Ravens.
i always give ginny props.
Ginny had some guts, and a good stick. Just way too slight of body to face pro men shooters in full NLL size nets.
Straight from the NLL, here's a look at the new Vancouver logo. Discuss.....
The sad thing is that if you replace "NO LOGO" with "VANCOUVER" then that logo might be better than whatever the team is going to reveal.
it needs to be a minor league looking person or animal with a lacrosse stick, or else it is not NLL worthy
Also, if it's plural, replace the S with a Z or and X.
Just turn that black stripe into a lacrosse stick, and you've got your logo for the Vancouver Knights!
I think they go Vancouver JC's (Johnny Canuck)
Per Stealth Play-by-play man Jake Elliot on the Lacrosse Classified podcast the rebrand will be announced on the 19th.
Teaser released on twitter
Appears to be a black and green color scheme.
Looks like black and lime green or neon yellow. Not sure how that says "Vancouver"
Looks like a Rush uniform. I wish they would've revealed it before the draft. It's gonna be kinda weird for Sak to announce "with the ___ pick of the draft, Vancouver (no name) selects ___"
Draft is the 25th, these are being revealed the Friday before that.
Separate names with a comma.
