In alignment with our current forum guidelines, let's house all Senators chatter here. (This sounds like great news.)

Well dip. Now do they mean the home black set with no white but the numbers or the ones with the white?  Can’t read beyond the pay wall.

Basically:

 

- 2D logo returns, closer to the less-ornate ‘97 version than the original ‘92 version (no team name).

- Home uniform is black with two red stripes (no white)

- Road uniform is what you would expect (white version of 90s uniforms)

- Alternate is happening, may or may not be red.

- Black pants

 

Still unclear:

 

The author of the article makes no mention of the current, unused 2D logo (states the team hasn’t had a 2D logo since 2007), so we don’t know if the “near identical” logo is the current 2D logo or a new update of the ‘97 crest.

 

Also, no mention is made of the colors of the sleeve numbers on the uniforms.

According to the mockups, all of the jerseys will be worn with black pants, which were depicted with the Senators’ alternate ‘S’ logo from the 1990s on the right leg.

 

Im assuming they are talking about this logo

Makes me wonder if they're considering ditching the "O" logo and doing something new with their third jersey.

The current 2D logo is like, one of my favorite sports logos ever. Really hope they're just using it.

It's good, but I feel like it benefits tremendously from having a set of wings like the original;

Something like this on the front of the sweater would be perfect.

Great news that this is coming. That said, I still to this day wish the Sens had worn these beauties in at least one of their playoff runs from 2002-2007:

Do you see the redundancy in the image?

The current 2D logo is near-perfect. It's an amazing modernization of the 1990s logos. 

 

Cautiously optimistic with this rebrand. The new unis sound good, but hopefully they make the right call with the logo.

I mean, I get that look was probably their best, but was hoping to see something new. Kind seems like a cop out. 
 

I am kind of glad it’s the black jersey without the white.  It pairs better with the white version. 
 

id assume it will have some updates to the shoulder logo, and probably the main. I can’t image they’d use the original one. It would look so dated.

The white accent stripes on the black jersey always looked better to me and represents more of when the team really became fun to watch in the late 90s

edit: It sounds like they will keep the double red arm stripes (without white accent stripes), which will still be okay with me.

I doubt they'll go this direction, put putting the Peace Tower logo from the black alternates back in the day would be awesome for a shoulder patch. Even still, will be nice to see the Sens go back to their roots with a black home jersey.

The wings were the worst part of the bad original logo.  If you're not going to keep the superior current 3D logo, at least keep the mostly-superior current 2D logo.

 

Also, the Peace Tower logo is traaaaaaaaash.

If they keep the double red arm stripes (with or without white accent stripes) I assume they'll put the numbers above the stripes (a la current Kings) instead of the 80s/90s trend of putting them directly on the middle stripes. 

That would make them a black and red version of the leafs basically. Perhaps with different proportions but still. I say it’ll be the same as before with the numbers inside the stripes. No one else does that anymore.

As a Sens fan, it's kinda surprising to me that a pretty good chunk of the fanbase thinks the updated 2D is hot garbage (which I strongly disagree with). I would prefer the updated 2D to be the main logo, but I'm not gonna complain that I can finally cheer for a team that doesn't wear a 13-year hot templated mess.

I'm in the minority but I never quite felt the updated 2d head elicited the same impact that the original does. I always like thicker lines, so I appreciate it for that, but the original feels more like a primary logo, where the updated one looks more like a shoulder patch IMO.

Report: Ottawa Senators to Bring Back Old Logo in 2021

July 14, 2020 - 00:05 AM

The Ottawa Senators have finally settled on their future look… by going back and using their old one. According to a report from The Athletic which SportsLogos.Net can confirm, the Ottawa Senators will be switching to a slightly modified version of the “2D senator head” logo they used from 1997-2007
