Did they not have to switch because the Capitals had beef with them using it?

I'm not entirely sure about the Spitfire, but you might be thinking about the Lethbridge Hurricanes because not only did they use the same template, their wordmark logo was very similar to the Capitals wordmark logo.

 

A lot of junior teams use the same template as a NHL team without issue, but the combination of both the logo and template was a little too much for the Caps liking.

Throughout their history, Lethbridge has used the Capitals jerseys. they ran afoul of the Capitals when they basically carbon copied their logo.

And I imagine it being the nickname of a Caps' division rival didn't help.

I'll never understand recoloring an existing logo. Logos should be designed to fit team colors, not the other way around. If they're going for Atlanta Thrashers nostalgia, they're going the wrong way.

 

It appears that the Thrashers similarities are unintentional. I believe it's more to mesh with the arena's other tenant, the Georgia Swarm of the NLL.

 

This is a mess, though. The light blue looks extremely out of place. The clash when it's directly on gold like on the helmet highlights is tough. The new wordmark (Trajan?) could use some big kerning help, and the font for "Atlanta" (Kabel?) doesn't fit well. Bosack's original is so good, and this feels like a bastardization.

 

Some elements on the new logo are weird, like on the triangular navy definition on the neck. In the primary and head-only logos it's just a triangle. But on the middle of the secondary logos that's more like half-body, that definition is now a triangle with a little dot above it. There also looks to be a little navy dot on the mask too. Some other lines on all the logos look a little wonky now, too. Like they didn't have the vector files to recolor so they recreated them or auto-traced or something. Super weird.

EDIT: After going to their site, it is obvious that the one major change is that all previous gold is now yellow. I'm thinking we will see an updated version of the North Stars jerseys.

Take off and nuke it from orbit; it's the only way to be sure.  Seriously, I hated the one-arm look for the Thrashers and it's even worse here.
