(Disclaimer: Not an original design)

I was working with a bunch of colors and found that this dark teal worked nicely. Also the addition of silver was to add depth, as it looks a bit flat with all white. C&C welcomed. Working on jerseys.

I like it, but it kinda looks like the eagle's foot is broken.

And it's wing and it's beak

It's pretty good, but it just doesn't say "hockey" to me. It looks more like a soccer crest. I like the colors, however.

Maybe... Like you care anyway.

It's not that I don't like the colors, it's just that they remind me of the Philadelphia Eagles. Two teams with the same name shouldn't also have the same colors even if they are in different sports.

DONKEY!

Its not bad, but it looks as if the eagle has just crashed into a window or something.

I know it's not really plausible for the project (because of the L.A. Kings), but it looks better in black and white, based on what I see when I tilt my screen back.

I like it but I can see what people mean. Maybe give the eagle 'softer' edges, because it does look abit hungover at the moment! Also, I tilted my screen back as Oaklandhusker mentioned, and it actually looks pretty awesome in black & white

This looks nice, but I agree that the eagle would look better with softer edges. Can't wait to see the unis!
One does not simply beat the Buffalo Sabres... oh wait.

It looks like a video game logo to me. I like the talons on the original, but it looked more like crows feet than eagles.

Maybe try adding colour, more specifically, maybe a yellow eye to the crow or some colouring to the shield? The P is a nice shape, but I'm not sure the font at the top really works with it.

The majority said it would look better with just black and white, so that's the direction I went in.

It does look better!

Put the talons back but update them to match the new eagle and work on the P. The big P and the script dont match at all and it makes the big P look like an imposter!

Im not a big fan of the logo. I've never thought the crest/shield logos have looked good on hockey teams.
