I get why this looks bad and likely isn't fair (they'll likely settle for a quiet apology), but every company with a valuable IP has to defend it like this or it quickly loses its value.

If he'd put a painting of Thor from the movie up there and said it was his kid's favorite comic book growing up, would you be fine with that? Just because this is a hockey team doesn't change basic law.
Wow. Loses it's value? The Habs logo will lose it's value because it's posted up in restaurant windows during the playoffs? Whatever man, think what you want I guess. I prefer to use common sense and a little judgement in this case. If the NHL is really worried about this the league is in a heap of trouble if you ask me.
