The club announced in July 2000 that they would bring back part of the popular Peace Tower logo -- which was used to help secure the franchise in 1989. They admitted that the Peace Tower was very popular, but unfortunately not many people know the significance of it outside of Canda which is why they tied in the maple leaf. Why the NHL always does things based on what Americans think is beyond me, but anyway....

the original logo that was used in 89 (which I cannot find a picture of...anyone?) was the word "ottawa" with the 2 t's stylalized in the shape of the peace tower.

There was considerable consternation after several thousand people went out and bought t-shirts etc. only to have the NHL dictate the Trojan er excuse me...Centurion design as more "marketable".
