  1. Here's a mock up of the logo on a jersey (Sharks template - with darker teal)... MOD EDIT
  2. With apologies to San Jose Sharks fans (not intending to offend), this is a logo concept for a ball hockey team named "The Sharts." The idea was to make something in the realm of the San Jose Sharks logo (biting the hockey stick), but make it some sort of shart monster. Tried to make it look wet and gross. Maybe it's too gross? MOD EDIT
  3. Aha.. I'm obviously behind! Thanks for pointing that out. I'm glad that's not the logo. (Really hope that's not the name either).
  4. Someone on a Jets Facebook fan page posted this logo, claiming it was a leak. Could it be true? Or is it just a fan made logo? If it is it, I'm disappointed. Looks minor league to me. Mascot holding a hockey stick with name underneath. Doesn't look cool or intimidating. Anyway, it's probably not the real thing, but in case it is, I thought I'd post it. Someone please set the record straight if you know!
  5. My questions were rhetorical. This issue has been brought up countless times and it has gone nowhere. They still continue to use a racist logo. The people fighting the logo can and should continue to use every effort and platform available until the team finally changes it. There are many many people in both Canada and the U.S. that are offended by it. And I'm not one of those people that thinks that everyone must be insulated from every chance at being offended. But I'm seriously shocked at how many people are ok with this logo in 2016. And I hate the "aren't there more important issues" argument. So because world hunger hasn't been solved, we should ignore every injustice? It's a simple fix - get rid of the logo. How hard is that?
  6. I don't see why it's bush league. The team is a win away from the world series and this is a great time to get the logo issue some attention. It's obvious that the court case wasn't going to be successful... That wasn't the point of it. I don't see why others in this thread have issues with the timing - this is NOT the first time the issue has come up. It's a perfect time to have the conversation again. As if the timing takes away from the legitimacy of the issue. Gimme a break. You know what's bush league? Continuing to use a racist caricature as your logo. I'm not indigenous, but if a sports team used a caricature of my race or culture, I'd be effing pissed. Would anyone be ok with a caricature of another minority group as a sports team logo? How about blacks? Or Jews? I love sports, and I love sports logos, but Chief Wahoo is an embarrassment of a logo, and Cleveland is an embarrassment of an organization for continuing to use it.
  7. I'm stoked that my Jets are back in the playoffs and on Monday will be attending my first Whiteout in 22 years! It was enough to inspire me to make my first concept in a very very long time. A lot has changed since the whiteouts of the 80s and 90s. Unlike back then, most fans nowadays wear jerseys to the games. Trouble is, the Jets' current white jersey isn't quite white enough for my tastes - much too much blue. So I whipped up this Whiteout jersey concept. Obviously not for the team to wear on the ice - just for the fans. The jersey logo is from the team's many playoff ads which show it obscured by snowfall. I added snowfall to the silver striping too. C&C please!
  8. Coolest concepts in a really long time. I really hope you do the whole league!
  9. Awesome work. The Silver kings jersey is incredible. Avs jerseys looks great too. Can't wait to see more!
  10. Agreed. I'm willing to overlook the fact that the league logo basically says "Bikini Basketball Basketball Association."
  11. So glad Logolympiad is back! G - 12 S - 6 B - 5
  12. 1000 new STHs, top 5 in NHL, 90% renewal rate. Great. All of that sounds like spin to distract from the fact that they didn't mention the only number that actually matters. How many season ticket holders are there? They could spin it any way they want, but the fact remains, the team has no owner and the city is paying the bills. At this point, positive articles about season tickets, particularly one that avoids giving the real number, just seems disingenuous.
  13. Congrats Ice Cap! I'm pretty stoked that they named Winnipeg's NHL team after my username too!
  14. plain NHL jerseys, then. I see. Thanks! I'm anxiously awaiting the new WPG/MB team name and logo. Looks like I might have to wait a while longer, if history repeats itself.
  15. There's a chance, according to True North, that they won't have a name, logo, and uniforms ready for the new team by the time the NHL entry draft happens on June 24-25. It's hard for me to envision exactly what they will do as far as a jersey for the drafted players. I started thinking about the precedent that was already set, and I understand that the Colorado Avalanche didn't unveil their team name and uniforms until August of 1995. In fact, I think they were toying with the name "Rocky Mountain Extreme" (with neon colours to boot) around June. Thankfully, they ditched that idea. So what did the Avs do for jerseys at the draft? Did they just wear NHL jerseys? Nordiques jerseys (seems unlikely)? I tried looking up pics of that draft. The only notable players that the AVs drafted were goalies Marc Denis and Brent Johnson. But I can't seem to find pics of them at the draft. It was 16 years ago, after all. Anyone remember what happened?
  16. Neat-o idea. Great concepts so far. How about Christiania?
  17. Well, have fun funding the Chinese mafia. I, for one, welcome our oriental overlords, and wish them well on their conquests. Triads 4 Lyfe! Of course, NHL licenced replicas are made in Indonesia, so unless you're buying a $300+ Edge jersey, you're supporting the "oriental" overlords. I wonder why RBK is unwilling to pay Canadian wages to make the replicas. Back in the day, the CCM replicas used to be made in Canada, cost less, and were of high quality. Times are changing, I guess. I'd be curious to know how the pay and working conditions compare at the Reebok sweatshops versus the ones where the conterfeits are made. Which would be better? Food for thought.
  18. wow.. just remove the "y" Incredible game, incredible finish.
  19. Go to the 13 minute mark of the video to see an interview with the logo and uniform designer. Nothing too in depth, but he does talk about his desire to have the team wear just blue, and skip the red to be different from "that other team." http://www.yathehabsrule.com/2009/11/nfb-film-gives-early-look-at-quebec.html Worth a watch. There's other general hockey goodness to watch in there too.
  20. Great job on the whole project. There are some very solid and original pieces of work here - the best league redesign I've seen on these boards. Kudos! P.S. Winnipeg comes after Washington...
  21. Right now I'm at square one... finding a suitable picture of a hockey player. An all-white or mostly-white uniform seems non-existent. If anyone can find one, post up a link, and I'll try my hand at making a hockey one. Still looking...
  22. This is incredible work! A hockey version would be wonderful.
  23. The shoulder logo (hockey canada logo) is only on the replica jerseys.
