You assume the new change would be better...   That is a huge assumption.

True. But clippers and LA kings !? surely it can only get better B)

Finally remembered what it reminded me of.

I made this version myself and feel the text is completely unnecessary:

The cat stands alone great without "Panthers" but the shield is necessary for the overall design.

Just a touch Thrasheresque now without the type.

The Red Wings announced that the new arena will be called Little Caesars Arena.  I would have preferred a non corporate name, but I get that it is 2016 and that was never going to happen.  Can't say I am a fan of the new arena logo:

That was a good logo, though. Yes, it was so very late-90s/early-2000s, but it worked far better than their other two logos.

Yeah it is iconic to that franchise, because it's all their fans know and love. You don't keep a logo for 20+ years and all of a sudden decide to overhaul the identity without expecting fans to be upset about the decision. 

 

The locals may not know the logo because Florida is still a growing hockey market and if people don't recognize the logo it's because they aren't fans of the team. 

 

Yeesh. After "20+ years" a logo change is papering over real problems. It's time to stop talking about it as a "growing market" and start considering it a "failed market".  Failing at the very least.

I feel like John Oliver would have something funny to say about this...

 The colourful inaugural jerseys are easily the best things they've worn, something about that really said "Florida"to me, and it was a fantastic look.

 

I couldn't agree more.  No matter how good the new jerseys turn out, there's no chance they will top the originals.  My hope is that the red version will be brought back as a third.  The Miami writer, who leaked the info, hinted at this.

Was Joe Louis Arena 2 too much to ask for? On a side note, does anyone know of any hockey arenas with a separately named rink? Like how Boise State football plays at Albertson's Stadium on Lyle Smith Field.

the new logo looks like a delicious chicago style pizza.

 

and i pray to infant jesus that they won't bring that "hockeytown" center ice logo to the new barn. seriously. i'm not one of those people that gets up in arms over how silly it is (probably because i don't remember a time when they didn't use it, because i became a fan in the early-to-mid 90's...

 

it just looks like such a relic of the "Fox Trax" glow-puck "Coolest Game on Earth" era of the NHL. at the joe, it reminds me of darren mccarty and kris draper and mike vernon and vladimir konstantinov... that's the past. this is a new arena, an entirely different era of players... we're a lot closer to 2020 than we are 2010, let alone 2000 or 1995. the time has come and gone, if it was ever appropriate to begin with.

Should be two winged wheels, one on each side of the red line.

Should've been the Hot 'n Ready Arena. Missed opportunity right there lol.

If there aren't a thousand jokes about Wings fans being hot n ready on game night, I'll be so disappointed. Nothing like Pizza and Wings for Detroit hockey! HA!

I still can't believe your work has yet to be on Icethetics. I like the shield without the wordmark much better but it is still way too JAGS for me if you get my drift. As for their new logo, it isn't terrible but I was expecting something with a more timeless look to it. It's too similar to the Jaguars' logo and it reminds me of a sports car brand, like Lamborghini or Porsche.

THEY CHANGED IT NOW IT SUCKS

 

I'm sorry, but what do you want? If people don't like a design, they're going to criticize it. I'm not sure what the Rangers' crest and the Kings' awful home plate logo have to do with the fact that the Panthers' new look is very reminiscent of something you would find in MLS. Was the old logo great by any means? No -- it was far too angular and intricate, and had no real success associated with it to boot. An update was definitely justified, but that doesn't mean we have to like whatever they come out with.

I just noticed how much the white will bleed into the gold on a TV screen. They really should put a blue stripe in between

 

Here is a quick and easy mock up

Aside from the new logo, do we know anything (jerseys, release dates, etc...) about Leafs identity package going forward?

The thing is, we are NEVER happy. Ever. Even the things we seem to like now, like Dallas and Winnipeg, were the worst things ever produced by man when they first came out. 

 

We're all majorly overreacting, from the highs of "the last logo was iconic!" to the lows of "This is the worst logo possible!" and I'm annoyed that this happens EVERY TIME.
