  1. Probably the coldest game I ever announced was a hockey game at St. Bonaventure in January. Must have been 20 degrees in that rink. It's a beautiful rebrand, and I'm shocked how little I miss the gold. The ONLY suggestion I have is that in the script, the v looks like a w with the letters around it, and I actually thought it was some alternate or clever spelling at first. Maybe adjusting the heights of the vertical lines immediately around it would fix it. That B is fantastic. Emphasize that. Not loving the shield-B, I think it's because of the rope cutting into it. Maybe tuck that behind the outside line or shrink the B. I think a ST. B would be a worthy addition, that B with a "ST" added to it at the top, a good item of flexibility (maybe in lieu of the shield B?) It's a fantastic concept. Really good stuff.
  2. It's so close to perfection. You change CANES to CAROLINA, and you put the hurricane logo in place of the O, you have their best uniform ever. It would still be unique and quirky, but it would look so much more natural.
  3. the CH logo is such an obvious answer, but the problem is that there's already a CH logo in the league: The C part of the flag logo is genius, but Carolina just had a ton of issues with "one flag isn't hurricane flags", so...
  4. I like the white stripes, really makes it pop. I hate that the mismatched sleeve and hem strips are back on the white. They fixed that error, and now it's back. It was dumb then, it's terrible now.
  5. That's waaaay too flashy, but it is the point I'm trying to make. I mean, this is a super quick and sloppy mockup that has no polish. Maybe silver drop shadow on the bolt, maybe the storm from the 90s jersey behind it, idk. But I think there's a real promise here that their current logo just lacks. ...but leave it to Florida to mess it all up, can't have both Florida teams wearing shields now, can we?
  6. Someone on this board made this image to mock the Florida Panthers' new logo, and they accidentally created the best Lightning logo: Make the arch on top white, and then it makes a subtle T. It's brilliant. But considering that the team they're copying is right next door, that's a problem
  7. This with the new unused 2D logo was the best option I've seen. I also think the version with the white stripes was the superior of the 90s versions. But my biggest concern that with two stripes on the sleeves and one on the hemline that they're going to be a red/black Toronto
  8. I knew I heard it somewhere - though I edited my post, it was Punch Imlach, not Toe Blake. Obvious mistake.
  9. As much as I like the Cavalry answer, I swear there was something about Punch Imlach coming to coach and wanting some kind of revenge on Toronto by taking blue and then saying that it looks better with gold. If I find that story I'll add a link, but that's what I remember hearing
  10. This team in Toronto is looking an awful lot like Ottawa
  11. The only thing that needs to change are the shoulders. They're unnecessary and clutter the design a little too much...and they're barely visible on tv anyway (on the black jerseys), so nobody should miss them. Yes, I realize that sounds like a contradiction, but the "is there something there?" is more distracting than if it were obvious. Eliminating the shoulders is how you bring this jersey into the modern age.
  12. I haven't been on in a good while, but I saw the notification, and not only do I like your logo, but I REALLY like that secondary logo. Brilliant and simple and packs the right amount of symbolism. Nice work. Would be all for this approach.
  13. I've never heard the flag thing, but they did use these for their first few seasons. I was told it was a little soccer-centric nod to the very popular soccer teams of the area. Even wearing it, you'd probably never notice the stripes unless you're in very bright light.
  14. I think, like the Montreal Canadiens (who ever thought those two looks would be in the same thought?), they are a BALANCE team. Red and blue are in (relatively) equal amounts, and that is part of the look. And having one color weigh heavier at home or heavier on the road doesn't mean anything, because look at the New York Giants.
