"Mint!"

This is a great project, you are very creative.
I have just started following the Q last year (im in England; and like follow all the prospects) and I must admit, that the Q seems to be the poorer relation when compared to the "branding" of the OHL and even the WHL.
Now I understand that I am English (and embarrasingly only speak one language) so need help to under stand what a Voltiguer, Cataracts and Saqueen is.
Not only that, but websites like the Ramparts, Huskies--who despite offering a "English version", simply dont bother to update it.
The Val Dor site is the worse...I have been trying to get anything on there Russian player, Shalimov, but it dosnt mention anything--even after his hatrick last week.
With so many exciting players in the league, I cant belive that I am the only person, frustratingly pulling out hair, spending an age trawling through stuff.
Cant belive that apart from sites like St Johns, Moncton, and the like, I cant even geta bloody game report!
Please understand Im not asking for all the good French teams to change their sites just for "Johnny Drumm"..lol...i just want to read about ALL the teams!!!

LOL...now where was I.
I would love to see new logos (even team names for the Oceanic, Sagueens) and kind of think the Tigres and Cats are too similar.
I do like the Huskies outfit though...

Loving your work...the Black Seadogs jersey looks awesome.!

A Voltigeur is basically an infantryman. I think that this is the original usage, but I'm pretty sure it's a reference to these guys.

A Cataracte is a waterfall. I think it implies a large waterfall, as opposed to a 'cascade.'

I'm guessing that the last one is supposed to be Saguenéen. A Saguenéen is a person from Saguenay. The former City of Chicoutimi is now a part of the City of Saguenay (it amalgamated with some nearby municipalities, most notably Jonquière, in 2002). Regardless, they didn't name it after the demonym for a city that did not yet exist. I am all but certain that the team is named after this gang. I like the story, and that only adds to the soft spot that I have for Les Saguenéens.

Oh, I know... The Olympiques update their English site, but they very obviously just Google Translate their articles. There was one the other day that featured the line 'In 62 games last year, he had 6 passes and 86 penalty minutes.'

I've often considered offering to proofread their English site, just to help make my team look good.

! Screw that! Saguenéens is one of the best team names in the CHL. I like things that have meaning like that.

Thank you so much for your great post Taoiseach. That was a fun read.
Of course, I whole heartedly agree about the Sagueneens name, Now I know what one is..lol

Without sounding like a ignorant Englishman, I do not expect the QMJHL to "cater" for me, but It can be frustrating following this league.
As a far away follower, I often find that I can not keep updated with half the teams in its league, which is a shame.
Due to the high level of Euro prospects now playing in the Q, access to the internet, and the inclusion of the Quebec league into a popular Video game, I know more and more Europeans now have an interest in following its teams....it just seems a little "short sighted"

Sometimes I use the online translator, with some hillariuos "faux pass" (ahh...see im speaking French already!)--on reading about Mikhail Grigorenkos exploits the other night, I had "Grigorenko, sent a pass of love to..." which I presume, is meant to say "sent a lovely pass"--unless of course Patrick Roy is attempting some new "team bonding exercise"...lol

Hey, I'm an Anglo-Ontarian and I manage to keep on top of things, although I do admit that it takes a bit more work than it would to follow the OHL, for example.

Hopefully sooner, rather than later I'll actually get around to trying to learn the local language. For how much time I spend across the river, it would just be courteous for me to do so. Besides, speaking French would make me more employable...

You thought I'd forgotten about this?

Moncton Wildcats.

The current logo is kind of... weird. It's a bobcat chestburster with really choppy lines. It's fairly ambitious but It's pretty outdated. While I wanted to maintain the colour scheme I chose to change 3 things.

1. The head shape
2. The blue on the jerseys
3. The claw things on the back

Here's what I came up with:

Awesome work, buddy. I love the new Sea Dogs unis. Can't wait to see what you got for Cape Breton. The Moncton ones are very well done but they remind me too much of the old Bathurst unis.

I think that alternate would be better if there was a little bit more of either the red or the gold.

I'm also in Halifax, and I've changed my mind on the name change following the Mooseheads more closely this year. I might change them to the Moose though.

The striping will be varied, just coincidentally these two teams came next to each other.

I have some stuff for the Titan lined up; also working on some Cataractes (more like their old logo), Sherbrooke (Castors), and Victoriaville.

I look forward to the Shawinigan and the Sherbrooke ones.

Shawinigan needs to ditch the generic edge look (their alternates are beautiful though), and I'm really excited to see the return of the Castors.

Shawinigan will definitely be more like this than their current.

[IMG]http://www.****************/images/logos/10/396/full/1730.gif[/IMG]

Les Tigres and les Titans will be updates of their current look, and the Castors will definitely be edging more towards classic and timeless than cartoony.

although i have never been a fan of a script logo with number underneath (dallas) i think the Montreal Juniors always looked really sharp, just a clean look. I like the Armada logo... but the jerseys and colours are really plain. what are your plans there?

I'm happy either way. There's a winning tradition with both Purple/Black/Orange and Black/Silver/White. My favourite thing about the old orange jerseys was the fact that there was no white outside of the logos.

One thing I would like to see though, is a blue and gold (our original colour scheme) alternate.

In regards to the sea dogs, I definitely like the version that's facing downwards. The direction the seal thing is looking changes the vibe. If its looking up at something it kind of implies weakness. Looking down implies dominance... sea dogs right now deserve to be represented by the latter. Jerseys are very plain and forgettable but I like the logo.

Wild cats design I'm not really a fan of at all. To Pre-edge Calgary flames... (If you recall, Baie Commeau already used that design back before edge was released.) mixed with a bit of pre-edge panthers with that early 90s style shoulder. Personally I really like their recent redesign. Logo still features a color that shouldn't be there, but as much as red and blue is overused, black is even worse. Cant condone adding black to any teams primary color scheme.
