  1. This league and its pseudo marketing crew would never let this happen before the official unveil. Not sure we should make any conclusions. At the same time, its very NHL: fresh expansion franchise, modern logo on a old style jersey.
  2. The problem I got with using the FDL as front logo on jerseys is its sort of, too generic, or too general. In Canada, its the symbol of french canadians, more a national symbol then a hockey team logo. Its the symbol of the Quebec government. It would be Like, the Capitals wearing only a big white star on a blue jersey at home. Its too simple or not enough distinctive. I dont know, for me, their places is on the shoulders.
  3. Top been 1970,80 Second 1990 2000,s Last, 95's Nords You know what Goth? I think you're right. Good shot.
  4. With respect Goth and other friends here, I think your making a analysis based only on graphics or the strick look of a logo. My approach on the Nords 2.0 and Jets 2.0 is not solely based on graphics impression, its widen to history, the fact theres been a team sporting the same name 10 or 20 years ago, and that you cannot understand what both Winnipeg and Qc city memories or feelings are. Of course, a entirely new franchise, say a new team in Portland WA, would not chose a 70's graphic era logo. It would make non sense Why did the new NFL Browns used the exact same names, colors, unis then the previous one? To link the new edition to the old. Winnipeg new team was to ne name Manitoba Polar Bears rumours said for long (which did not made consensus) and they finally made the right move, Winnipeg Jets of course. I think the original roundel would've been a great logo, event on the current unis they chose, which is very 70 80. Anyways, my 2 cents, my opinion does not rely only on graphic, its based on a balanced mix of estetic and history. Interesting discussion like always, and sorry if a bit out of topic.
  5. The igloo, created by a 17 year boy, in a design contest 1972.. Not an easy task to explain the matter. Majority of locals, I'd say, want it back, in fact, want the 1995 unis back. The igloo does reminds of terribles seasons, but also, greatest seasons, as well the Stastny's era, the fantastic battle against Montreal, I mean, the 29 pts Nords played full crowd 1989, I was there. Go figure? Theres so many people outside Canada who wants it back so bad, I'd say Qcor would do a good move taking it back as it was. Ask many Jets fan what they'd prefer? I think majority wanted the great Jets roundel back. My bet is a new uniform with the exact same logo.
  6. I would have done this, using a third with the 50's leaf.
  7. Yankees, Red Sox, 1970's Oakland, 1970's Brewers, Cubs, all greatness.
  8. well, for me this was the best MLB unform. Maybe because I started watch baseball in 1978..
  9. I agree with you entirely. I'd put only TORONTO in the leaf on the road jersey, and nothing in the leaf at home. Yes, nothing.
  10. Ya I know I thought the pic was fun.
  11. You mean Instead of Such a beauty, elegant, classy, tough. Those were the Bruins.
  12. AB SO LU TE LY
  13. WELL SURE lol. :-)
  14. See Boston is a interesting example. By far the 1982 is better IMHO.
  15. The O vs the roman guy I think the O screams hockey, while beeing the one and only pro sports team I think using this as a logo. Players looks bold, unique, agressive even sort of phantomatic with the O, they look like anybody else with the 3D roman guy. Its popular in Ottawa, its Stanley cup's reference, its unique, and heck, the Ottawa 67's junior team used the O for decades. The roman guy for me a like, well, not the best. In fact, many of the senators at the house of commons sleeps in sessions. Its Rome. I dunno, never light interest for me. My 2 cents is theres a battle between the league offices and Ottawa to go to O.
