NHL Logo Rankings

Recommended Posts

So around July I ranked the NHL logos by the ratings they have on the logo page, and since the Ducks changed their logo, I decided to post it to the public.

  1. Chicago (8.6)

  2. Detroit (8.4)

  3. New Jersey (8.4)

  4. San Jose (8.2)

  5. Buffalo (8.1)

  6. St. Louis (7.9)

  7. Montreal (7.8)

  8. Minnesota (7.8)

  9. Anaheim (7.8)

  10. Boston (7.7)

  11. Edmonton (7.7)

  12. Nashville (7.5)

  13. Philadelphia (7.4)

  14. Calgary (7.4)

  15. Florida (7.2)

  16. Colorado (7.1)

  17. Pittsburgh (7.0)

  18. N.Y. Islanders (6.9)

  19. Phoenix (6.9)

  20. Winnipeg (6.9)

  21. N.Y. Rangers (6.8)

  22. Dallas (6.8)

  23. Toronto (6.6)

  24. Vancouver (6.4)

  25. Washington (6.4)

  26. Ottawa (6.3)

  27. Columbus (6.3)

  28. Los Angeles (6.0)

  29. Carolina (5.9)

  30. Tampa Bay (5.0)

Ties are decided on by how long the general design has been around.

Comments or concerns?

While admittedly biased, Calgary should be much, much closer to the top of the list. Logo wise, we are definitely better than Philly, Edmonton, Buffalo, etc. Hell, we're even better than O6 teams like Detroit!

Dead on with Tampa Bay being at the bottom.

This isn't based on me, it's based on the user ratings of the page.

Might be showing my hockey ignorance here, but why does Chicago get a pass on their Native American logo? Obviously an order of magnitude below Chief Wahoo or the Washington Pigskins, but the logo still seems like a stereotype to me.

Which means that, while many us think we know a good logo when we see one, we clearly don't know what we are talking about! :)

I'm not doing this based on my own opinions, then the Isles would be 1. It's based on a consensus.

I also think the Flames logo sucks, the shade of red is awful and the black outline is awful as well. The black alt is much worse, however.

It's based of the war paint of Chief Blackhawk. I will admit, that logo is only liked because nobody has come around to modernize it, kinda like Wrigley.

I can live with that list....I only think the Rangers' could be higher up and the Ducks lower down.

Oh and the Sharks way too high.

Maybe the entire list is stupid since there are more votes for one logo and less votes for others skewing the percentages.

Would you like the ratings to be based off 30 people's consensus?

It's a stylized drawing of Chief Black Hawk, who was an actual historical figure, so it's not really stereotyping anyone. Memorializing Black Hawk is a big thing in Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin, even though he fought against the Americans.

Edmonton should be much lower. Yes it's classic, but it's not a good logo, at all.

Calgary should be higher. Not much higher, but higher.

Really? It is a big thing? I live in the CR-Iowa City-Bachmanntowne-Dubuque area and I see no statues of Black Hawk anywhere. The only thing I can think of Black Hawk County.

Surprised Anaheim is ranked above Boston. I mean, the d-foot is a good logo. But I don't think it's quite top 10 good. And definitely not as strong a brand as the Bruins. Buffalo and San Jose are definitely not top 10 good either.

I figured there must be some Black Hawk stuff out by the Quad Cities. Also, how do Cedar Rapids and Dubuque constitute an area?
