Snubbed again?
 
In a ranking on THN of the top Logo's they have the Rangers at 16th, with the Preds, Icegirls, disgusting penguins logo, Yotes, Flames, Sharks and Wild all ahead of us.

They have the leafs at ten which I think is a joke. The Leafs and Rangers should be in the top 6 with all other original 6 teams. The Avs have a Great logo and are at 19?

How badly does the Hockey News hate the Rangers?

Where do you guys think the Rangers should be on that list?

Inferno 08-18-2008 01:22 PM

i went with about 5. There are some better logos than ours for sure, but i like it.

GarretJoseph* 08-18-2008 01:24 PM

I went with the #9 spot, just missing the playoffs. I'll continue thinking that way until I see them on the ice and see them pick up another top six forward.

Everybody last year spoke about how long it took the Rangers to gel with Drury and Gomez.. Well, how long is it going to take this season to gel with Redden, Voros, Rissmiller, Zherdev, Naslund...

I see this being a big disappointment right now, but things could change once they actually start playing the games.

Carlos Ranger 08-18-2008 01:25 PM

It's another stupid logo contest, who cares?

Read the OP again. ;)

McMonster 08-18-2008 01:27 PM

our logo isn't that great.... there are alot of better logos for sure

To be fair, the quote next to the logo is:

SupersonicMonkey* 08-18-2008 02:07 PM

What exactly do they want it to look like?

When you see the Rangers shield, it is instantly recognizable.

When you see all of the teams above us, besides the Leafs, Oilers, and Islanders, how would anyone with little knowledge of the league have any idea who the logos represent?

The guys who made up the list have no clue about marketing.

And they pick one of the most racist logos in sports (add the Redskins and Indians to that list) as the best in the league? lol

Even the Yankees have a primary logo in which their name and city are identified.

The Rangers shield is classic, classy, iconic, recognizable, and avoid racial lawsuits.

Call me a homer all you want, the Rangers and Mets logos are two of the best.

Inferno 08-18-2008 02:08 PM

I like the Flames, Sharks, Wings, and Devils logos more than ours. Hate the devils franchise, but i have to admit, its a pretty cool logo.

Wings yes. Rest no F'ing way. I could understand Montreal Blackhawks Leafs and Wings all being ahead of us. But Boston's logo is **** IMO.

Only non original 6 teams who could be in teh top 6 were the Flyers or Blues.

original 6 means crap to me. I dont care about that one iota in terms of how good the logo looks.

Its all about personal aesthetics. There is no right and wrong answer to the question.

danno2530 08-18-2008 02:49 PM

Here's mine:

1 CHI
2 MTL
3 BOS
4 DET
5 PHI
6 STL
7 TOR
8 NYR
9 PIT
10 CAL

I'm O6 biased, I'll admit. I just think they are the best, classiest logos. Even though I hate the team, the Flyers logo is classic. As is St. Louis. I'm glad the Pens brought the skating Penguin back a few years ago (although I preferred the one with the scarf).

ogie 08-18-2008 03:18 PM

as it said ....this is not a jersey contest. it is a logo contest and i agree the rangers "shield" isn't a great design.

I can see someone making a case for "indians" or "redskins" being racist to someone out there, but "blackhawks"? Really? Unlike the previous two it's an actual name of some tribe or nation or whatnot.

BigCanada77 08-18-2008 03:22 PM

Our logo isn't really that good. Badge logos can look really cool (just look at European Soccer), but for a badge logo, I'd say ours is below average. And like it says, if this was a jersey ranking, we'd be much higher. Original Six has no bearing on things like this. Nowadays, modern design aspects have alot to do with it, i.e. the utilization of negative space. Although I dont think this ranking is a very good one at all, I have to agree with where our position is -- I might even put us lower.

Recognizable?? Yes. But so is Mike Ricci... And he aint so pretty to look at.

Wow, that is some epic fail. Reading the OP helps you avoid instances like this.

jniklast 08-18-2008 04:15 PM

i don't like the blackhawks logo at all, simply because when i think of indians hockey is pretty close to the bottom on the list of things that come to my mind

and to be fair i also don't think the rangers logo is such great design, it's justv a pretty simple shield, so a place in the midfield is ok with me

Choice 08-18-2008 04:29 PM

All original 6 logos should be ahead of all expansion teams. But as far as original 6 goes, Rangers are towards the bottom.

Where do you guys think the Rangers should be on that list?

Just because those teams have been around for awhile doesn't make them better logos. Historic, fine... but better logos? Some of the newer ones are just better. (Red Wings? Really? It looks kinda silly when you think about it)

Wild is good, as is Calgary, and the Kings.

And besides, if they didn't change the order around every year, then these types of contests get kinda boring.

And finally, to be fair... the Rangers logo isn't even on their primary uniforms. So it kinda loses some points there as every other team struts their stuff.

ZetterbergFourty* 08-18-2008 04:44 PM

i like the Rangers logos. They are similar to the Kitchener Rangers, my hometown team. I'd put them within the top 6, which imo should include the Original Six. Iconic Logos. amirite? Who dictates this list btw, THN or fan polls?

Burlington Bomb 26 08-18-2008 04:44 PM

1. Wild
2. Buffalo Classic
3. Blues
4. Chicago
5. Penguins
6. Red Wings
7. Flyers
8. Flames
9. Coyotes
10. Kings
11. Sharks
12. Rangers

Darius Dangleaitis 08-18-2008 05:05 PM

The fact that the Islanders are 12th completely discredits the list.
