NHL 2018-19

I disagree with the author. The Red Wings logo patches have been understated, simple, and in the Wings classic red and white. It's exactly what a traditional organization should do with its memorial patches.

I honestly have never had a problem with the Hurricanes look. Apart from their 3rd jerseys which I have never liked all that much, especially their latest effort. I've never understood the criticism that you can't tell it's a puck in the middle and that the perspective is weird. You're looking up at it, on an angle. It's a Hurricane. It would be in the air. It makes total sense. I like it.

 

The logo works well. Sure it's maybe a little bit generic I suppose, but it looks strong and sits well on a jersey. The supporting warning flag pattern is fantastic to go with it. That's all you need. To me that's a solid identity that has nothing wrong with it. I'd put the Hurricane logo around 20th in the league. Far from the weakest logo out there.

They should have never changed their 1997-to-2007 look, though the current home is certainly close enough.  Hopefully the new road is just a white version and they don't try anything cute.

The thing is, the only thing distinguishing the white from the red is the warning flag pattern. Other than that, it IS the white version. If Dundon “hates” the road jersey, it seems like a detail practically invisible from far away isn’t enough to fix it. I’m excited to see what they can come up with, but I have a bad feeling they’ll throw the baby out with the bathwater.

They're "similar" in a sense I guess, but it's definitely not a white version of the home. The Hurricanes owner at the time, IIRC, said as much when they were unveiled.

Seeing a puck from below is rare. Seeing a hurricane from below is impossible. You can be *in* the storm, at ground level, and maybe see the edge of the eyewall, but the only way to view a hurricane and see the form is from above, at satellite (or maybe aircraft) level.

 

The way the puck is colored also makes it look like a tuna roll. 🤷‍♂️

What would a white version look like? I can see that there’s no black cuffs or hems, but IMO that’s necessary to maintain colour balance.

 

I’d say this concept by @B-mer is more faithful to the home jersey, but disrupts the colour hierarchy too much.

I have never seen a Hurricanes concept logo that was better than the real thing.

I think the black and red could be flipped on the white, à la the Flames.

The only other thing I might do is make the outline black instead of white. But I like how understated it is, just like when the Yankees place the number above the black armband.

The 9 and 7 patches are fine but boring. I do like Clark’s idea of using the “diamond C” from the old sweater... it’s just as simple and it shows more thought than the number-in-box, which is the whole point of the memorial patch - to show you’re thinking and remembering the player and their family.

 

However, that “Mr. I” patch is an embarrassment. I’d rather have the Little Caeser’s mascot in a Wings sweater reclining on top of four Stanley Cups while having grapes dipped into his mouth off the vine. At least that would have shown some thought and intention.

I give that Hurricane's home and away concept a 9/10

Didn't think it looked much like a puck myself (although I can see how it was either designed as one or could be seen that way), but I always interpreted it as the eye of the storm.

 

Either way, the Canes logo is fine.

I see nothing wrong with this, especially with the return of the shoulder patches.  Getting rid of them was a particularly boneheaded decision.

Because elements in a logo can never have double meanings...

The funny thing is if you look at my concept next to their original jerseys they are very close and the color balance isn’t all that different.  I don’t recall many complaints about it on the originals. 

 

The red numbers, letters, pants, and gloves help well enough I think.

The shoulder patch will be their new alternate jersey logo most likely, even though I like this as a patch a lot more. By the way, nice concept B-mer!

Retro Stinger Logo Returns on New Blue Jackets Goalie Mask

March 11, 2019 - 15:43 PM

Hey kids, remember “Stinger”? No, not the mascot, the logo. When the Columbus Blue Jackets first announced their name in 1998, two years prior to their inaugural season in the NHL, the team also unveiled a logo. This logo featured a yellowjacket wearing a union […]
