Completely disagree. The updated 2D logo is simpler, bolder and cleaner. It eliminates the thin outlines around the wings and plume. All done to better execute in smaller applications such as embroidery on hat. It corrects the rotation of the face, attaches the plume and more importantly IMO, it's now a circle, so it could be centered as a jersey crest.
The wings of the old logo create an off-centered visual with the wings so the logo as a whole is centered, whereas your eye wants to center the circle.
In addition the, the updated 2D adds a nice nod to the city of Ottawa because the cape is taken from the city flag.
