  1. While teams try and say it is to "enhance the brand", they are just there to make it tougher for counterfeiters. The Canes' flag pattern belongs on the jerseys, not just the inside collar.
  2. This is why, while I do find the profile centurion logo aesthetically pleasing and a huge upgrade over the current logo, going back to it would be a half measure. This change is about more than just a logo, it's about the entire brand. You simply cannot generate a strong brand around something with such weak ties to the city/team name. That's how we ended up with a Gerard Butler impersonator at centre ice trying to pump up a playoff crowd. The =O= might not be the best or most interesting logo in the league, but it represents everything that the team should of be striving to represent. Ottawa has one of the richest hockey histories in the world, is the birthplace of the Stanley Cup, and was home to one of the leagues founding members (pre-Original Six). The heritage jerseys are a perfect way to tie all of this to the brand.
  3. While I may not have been happy with all of their deadline moves, news like this gets me excited (although I'm still not getting my hopes up): http://ottawacitizen.com/sports/hockey/nhl/senatorsextra/new-ottawa-senators-president-considering-logo-change
  4. What do people think of my old high school's logo:
  5. While I generally agree that having the pants a different colour from the jerseys/socks is the way to go, it really only works when the pants are a darker colour than the jerseys/socks. It's the reason that I love the Wild's red look (the pre-Edge Wild alt is one of the only jerseys I have bought purely for aesthetic reasons). Red pants with dark green jerseys & socks would be too jarring of a look. It's why I am not a fan of the Blue Jackets using red pants.
  6. It's not just that coloured jerseys outsell whites (I don't think it's a huge discrepancy, and depends on the team), but that thirds are usually a team's 3rd colour. It makes more sense for the Oilers to have a blue, a white, and an orange jersey, than a blue and two white jerseys. White alts can sometimes come off as redundant (i.e. Philly's anniversary jersey).
  7. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that the people making these "0 cups" jokes also call the Habs logo a toilet seat. A plain O is definitely not the most interesting, but when you add the stripes it evokes the tradition of a city with one of the richest hockey histories in the world. Just because they are a separate franchise from the original Sens, it doesn't mean they can't dress like them. Just ask the Washington Nationals.
  8. It's rare to see the mainstream media (meaning not these boards or twitter), getting involved in logo discussions, but hopefully this gets the team's attention: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/sens-logo-in-need-of-revamp-1.3955966?cmp=rss
  9. I'm yesterday's announcement that Tom Anseli would be the new president and CEO of the Sens, the word "rebrand" was dropped a few times. While I highly doubt that the logo and use of red at home are going anywhere, it seems more and more likely that the uniforms will be updated next season.
  10. Here's what I would do. I would keep things as is for the regular season, but come playoff time I would allow each team to designate a home uniform of their choice. You wouldn't have any issues as far as equipment management goes, as everyone would know ahead of the series what colour teams have chosen. This is way a team like the Jets could do their traditional white out in the arena without their fans looking like they're supporting the opposing team.
  11. Having the NHL logo on the front, and on the collar seems a bit redundant. They should put the ASG logo in the collar (or some sort of star pattern like last season). That way they could use the NHL100 patch on the shoulder.
  12. The junior A team in Kanata was formerly known as the Stallions (they are the Lasers now), and they used a black, red, and green colour scheme. I always thought that if they Devils were going to introduce a black alternate, that they should incorporate some green into the mix as a nod to the previous uniforms, and something like the uniform below is what I had in mind (minus the phantom yoke). With that being said, they shouldn't touch the primary logo or uniforms. If the change is drastic, we'll likely see them pull a Penguins and eventually go back to the set they won their first Cups in. I'm hopeful that the Sens will listen to the majority of their fans, and go to the heritage unis full time (there's been a pretty strong amount of Twitter activity pushing them to do so), but I realize that it's probably wishful thinking. It will most likely end up being a slightly different red home jersey with the same logo they have now, and a matching white. Even if it's not what I want, I'll be happy to see the current Edge-templated messes gone. As for the Oilers, the orange jersey is a perfect alternate. It supports their primary identity well, and is great in small doses, but should not be worn 41 times a year. This reminds me a lot of the Flyers dropping orange and going with black at home full time. The Blue Jackets should take this opportunity to swap the primary & shoulder logos on their home and away. The cannon has become one of the most recognized aspects of their brand, and is far too detailed to be on the shoulder. I'd also like to see them stop playing Rangers dress up, and switch to navy breezers.
  13. These are definitely a big improvement over the current templated mess, but they still look too much like the Devils and Blackhawks. Every red and black team in the league uses a red primary. The easiest way to stand out would be to change to a prominently black look, I've made it known here quite a bit that I'm in the "switch to the heritage look full time" camp, but even a switch to the 95-99 look (minus the red toga alt), with the updated profile logo would work for me.
  14. This is probably my favorite NFL matchup period, let along among the potential Super Bowl matchups. I'm a sucker for helmets and pants matching up, plus the cool, dark colour scheme of the Raiders perfectly balances out the bright, colourful Packers.
  15. Dallas has a couple of hands on owners who have had a good amount of success.
