All these logo changes over the years have deprived the kings of that history. Our colors are always changing as well. I feel the team has no identity. It's sad....
The Pens have had nearly as many logos as the Kings. They've had lettering, a skating penguin, a penguin logo, etc.
The Flyers have never changed, even their alts are a variation of their main logo. The Blues have been pretty much the same. They did have that ugly horn one a few years back, IIRC, and one with the Arch on it.
I'm not sure what it has to do with identity, though. Teams are usually rich in history because of what they have accomplished, not because of their sweaters. The Kings haven't accomplished squat, hence the lack of history
