    It's a VERY good thing.

    Making the ends of the tentacles visible. Here's a rough example of what I was talking about with moving the Needle behind the eye. https://s684.photobucket.com/user/VicDiGital/media/kracken idea_zpsh2uwwy9x.png.html

    Is the white dot supposed to be a light reflection? If so, it's not working. You'd need to take the tower out and it to be a fully-recognizable eye for that to come across like you're intending. I know you're going for a nice symmetrical circle/eye, but what if you had some tentacles continuing outside of the circle in a couple of places? Another option is to move the Needle behind the eye entirely, and reduce the size of the eye about 30% so that the tower can rise above the eye (where we can see a little bit of the tower part.

    Of the four above, I like 1(upper left) and 3(lower left), although 3 may be a bit too dull and desaturated. For your mostly-teal one above, I could get behind this one. I'd be curious to see what it looks like with the red extending up the sleeves, cutting off at the yoke. I feel that would help echo the effect of the "Eye of the Kracken" in the logo and further differentiate it from red teams and shark teams.

    I second this suggestion.

    A is still the winner for me. B starts to give off a Devils feel. C is fine, but everything is typical and expected. "Seattle with shades of lime and green? Didn't see THAT coming..." I say stick with your original instinct with tea and red and dark.

    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. Does that help?

    I'm not feeling the Sharks logo yet. I don't know what that thing is supposed to be on top. Is that a Nike swoosh the shark is swimming through? The shark logo itself looks okay when it's just over white, but when it has the black outline around it, it looks really flat and blobby. The dark areas of the shark are supposed to represent shadow, but when placed next to something that is shadow-colored (black), it turns it into feeling like that's just the colors/patterns of the shark's skin, in this case, teal and white splotches.

    Agreed! You place that jersey alongside any other grouping of jerseys, even red jerseys, and it stands out because of the teal. The overall look doesn't come across as red. The teal really gives it a mystical, coral-ish, underwater feel to it.

    When I see the Red Teal Black combo, in no way whatsoever does my brain see any of the red teams, the black teams or San Jose. There will never be a time when you're squinting and wondering if you're looking at the Stars, or the Wild, or maybe a Whalers jersey.

    Red Teal Black Dark Green Lime Green Yellow But of the two, I'd still stick with Red Teal Black, because there's no other color combo like it in the NHL or any other sport, really. I'm lime-greened out, to be honest. If you want to keep experimenting, I'd play around with shades of red teal and black to see if you stumble across a combo that addresses whatever it is that's niggling at your design sense.

    Awesome. It almost looks like a bowtie crosses with a straight tie. Put a lumberjack face above it, and you have lumberjack formal wear.

    I would have loved to have seen Vancouver's giant V sweaters from the early 80's incorporated somehow.

    I remember the old soccer thread "The America League", his DC team was called just "The District", which I always loved. It just gave it such a tough, arrogant flavor. "District United" has some of that flavor. It has more swagger than "DC Whatever"
