lol you're analysing a turd. It's not even a legitimately good logo alternative. Jesus...

It has its merits. It reminds me of the awesome New Jersey Devils logo, for one.

From Chris Smith's most recent article on Icethetics: "Rumors have also surfaced regarding changes for specific teams. My spies tell me that with Lou out of the picture, the Devils briefly considered sweeping changes to their identity but have since scaled back. But look for redesigned home and road sweaters along with a new shoulder patch. And consider them a lock for their first-ever third jersey in 2018-19."

I like it, but I think even just some slight clean up makes a big difference.

So what I gather from that is:

-Keep the logo

-Tweaked/redesigned jerseys

-New shoulder patch (I'm most excited for that)

-New third jersey in 2018-19 (Most likely either the current home or red-green throwback)

 

This is very good news.  I remain hopeful this change will be a tasteful one.  Maybe they will even incorporate green.

That update no longer resembles a sitting-devil which is the most clever thing about the logo...  

 

lol what?

I would prefer a return to the red and green look in its entirety, but even keeping the red and green template but switching green out for black would be nice.

 

As far as alternate logos go...I fear it's going to be some sort of cartoon devil.

Fix the horns so they're more similar and it's perfect

 

(Also thicken the circle outline)

I'd like to see green replacing black on the current template.  That striping configuration is so much cleaner than the inaugural one.

 

I hope you're wrong about the cartoon devil, that would be just awful.

I always thought the logo was modeled after the Jersey Devil itself. The knee and leg you're seeing, I interpreted as a wing.

Does anyone else see a lower case "d" (for devils) in the logo? I always assumed it was intentional but in light of all the discussion about hidden shapes I'm second guessing myself.

I guess it's *kind of* there if you look for it, but I don't think that was an intentional design element. Much like the hidden "SJ" in the Sharks logo that's sort of there but not really.

I would expect the new alternate logo to be related to New Jersey in some way. Maybe a script or a state outline. The new ownership has been pushing a theme of being a "New Jersey" team. Maybe something like the draft logo. 2013-NHL-Draft-logo-NJ-shape.jpg

FWIW, There has been very rare uses of a cartoon logo throughout the Devils history, only appearing in either their minor league logos or their team store logo.

I really don't see the Devils going the cartoony route. If this were to happen in the 90's then, yeah, I could see that. But this is the 2010's, and these days the trendy thing is to base it on the military :upside:

Now there you have it.  I think that's a clear upgrade to the original, fixing the many small problems while retaining its spirit.

The Devils should use the old Jersey Devils mascot for a new logo

 

Never knew this team existed. Guess this gives the "New" Jersey Devils a whole new meaning.

 

That logo is neat, if a bit similar to the Nordiques.

That really wasn't their logo. It was their mascot. Their first logo was a jersey devil looming over a map of New Jersey.

Then they ditched the logo for a bland wordmark

Then they went with an old English "D"

And finally these monstrosities where they became the Flyers farm team and fused the logos together

The team was based in Cherry Hill NJ.

John McMullen's wife based the original Devils concept logo off of the NJ Transit logo. I think it would be cool if they based a shoulder patch on the Garden State Parkway logo utilizing the state shape from the 2013 draft logo.
