Sabres new 'vintage style' logo on center ice...

Recommended Posts

I think the center ice logo is great. As everyone else, I think it should cover the entire circle. The logo itself is great though.

WGRZ Sports Adam Benigini,

The Buffalo Sabres had the 3rd logo down painted on the HSBC Arena ice and Mike Gilbert tells us that every team that owns a third jersey is going to have their alternate logo painted at center ice just for preseason, Carolina has the 3rd jersey logo painted at center on their home ice the hurricane warning flag with a triangle. When the regular season comes it will be back to the real logo.

The Blues had their normal paint scheme (Bluenote on both sides of center) at center ice in their first home preseason game.

Couldn't find a good photo, but I found one good enough to confirm that.

So are the Pens going to have the yellow gold instead of the Vegas updated Penguin?

That's a real pain in the ass for the crew who takes care of the ice.

I love that at center ice over the slug. And I don't mind that it doesn't fill the circle. Looks good, unlike say, Ottawa who has their logo blown up and so big that parts of it are cropped out of the circle. Someone care to explain to me what the point of that is?

Why do they have to paint the logos? Can't they put down a really big decal on the white surface and then flood / freeze over top of it? Or am I just totally wrong about how the process works?

That's how we did it when I worked at a ice rink. We didn't have any logos or anything but the lines were made out of a tissue paper like paper.

I'm pretty sure thats how they did it for the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoff banners at the blue line. It might be because they didn't have time to completely redo the ice, they could add another layer over the decal with all the original lines and they are set.

I'm a little perplexed why everyone is saying they should fill the whole circle? that extra outline isn't part of the logo.

the logo is filled and looks fine.... the real question is why did they add a separate blue line around the logo?

It really isn't since all arenas keep track of coats and thickness

For the most part the logos and advertisements are decals under about 1/8" to 1/4" layer of ice (3-5 coats of water).

It appears as if the third jersey logo is still at center ice after seeing some highlights of gameday skate.

Here's a checklist of other home teams Friday who have an alt-logo option for center ice:

CAROLINA: Alt logo

BUFFALO:

DALLAS:

Yeah, the Canadiens/Sabres game is staring and the third jersey "vintage" logo is still occupying center ice.
