The inescapable part of that for me is that:

2. the whole 'future' thing was a colossal, epic bust in the truest sense of the word.

I'm a history nerd, so not being 'all in' about doing the research and really figuring out the O6 logos bothers me to no end.

On a side note, how many Van Der Beek gifs do you have?
I don't have any, but has one for every occasion lol.

Look, I don't buy in to the whole O6 thing claiming they are more simple. Classic, yes. Traditional, sure. But the Red Wings and Blackhawks, for example, have very detailed and intricate designs - hence you can have detail and still be iconic. The retrofuture thing, or future imagined decades ago is, to me, nothing short of cool. Doesn't mean I'm a fan of our logo, I just don't believe it was executed properly.
