Did you read the article? It says that they named the team the Nordiks because the trademark Nordiques belongs to the NHL.

The way I see it, Quebec is pretty far north so it sort of makes sense to call their team that.

Cayouche5 07-15-2004 01:07 PM

anybody have the picture of the logo ?

What I meant by that was, if you're gonna try to get a pro hockey team to work in QC, the Nordik gimmick won't work.

The only way that would've worked would've been the original name and logo, else go with something completely diffrent... Calling them Nordik only brings back memories and can only lead up to comparisons.

As for the name and logo being property of NHL, maybe it's just me, but I remember some old Rejean Tremblay articles where he mentionned those where actually property of Marcel Aubut.

Ugly
 
It makes me think about a candy bar wrapper. Can you imagine Ribs in that shirt? :lol

Guriken 07-15-2004 02:51 PM

This picture on radio-canada is not really a beauty but what i saw on TV was really a nice logo... I think it's better than the ugly old nordiques logo... the one with an N and a stick on the right of it. ;)

komisakick ass 07-15-2004 03:25 PM

It look like the coke bear

:cry:

Vinceee 07-15-2004 03:25 PM

In my opinion, something like "Le National de Quebec" would have been cooler!

If Riberio was in that shirt,that would mean he is no longer a Hab :handclap: :handclap: :handclap:

GKJ 07-15-2004 04:18 PM

This better be a hell of a hockey league because I wouldn't be too happy to be wearing some of these logos

Hey now,
I'm an icebreaker, so don't make fun of me, lol.
The Halifax logo looks like the old Islanders jersey.
The quebec one looks like it belongs in a klondike bar commerical....

Seriously, it would have been much better than the "Nordiks". It's so ugly! I HATE it when somebody purposely decide to misspell something!

This logo isn't that bad, we couldn't see on the first picture posted but look at this one, IMO it's a good logo, not great but it's not bad.

That bear just looks too happy, he doesn't look like he is menacing at all, i mean they could have been a little more creative in chosing a name, the city does have a real rich history as a north american stronghold, so why not use the name of a war ship or a fortress.

I still am anxitous to see what the sweaters will look like for all the teams, and Detroit definetly has the coolest logo of all the teams, and Toronto had the worst.
