Logo Stanley Cup Finals - New Jersey vs. Minnesota

So here we are at the last logo poll of them all.
Sixteen teams made the "playoffs" and only two are left.

So, for the last time - Which logo do you like more, New Jersey or Minnesota?

Bump - please just post your votes if the poll's getting too far down the page so I don't have to keep bumping my own thread

Poll's open until ~4:30 on the 23rd.

Minnesota. NJ's is a little more pleasant to look at, but Minnesota gets monster creativity points and NJ gets no creativity points.

Jokes.

The incredibly busy bear head or the simple and elegant Jersey design?

Hmm, hard choice.

For the last time, it's a wolfbearcat. Maybe a little raccoon, but frankly the animal's supposed to be ambiguous and no one knows what it actually is.

I don't get this - what is the purpose of the playoffs? If a logo was voted as #1, then it should be the best, no? Now the same people vote and somehow #6 is winning? Are people bipolar or something?

Also, what exactly is so special about NJ logo?

No, it's just that Minnesota has like no fans to homer vote. Plus, putting two teams against one another rather than all of them in a list creates a much different result.

As for the second question, New Jersey's logo is cool with the "N" and "J." Not as good as the hidden "S" and "J" in the San Jose one, but I like it too.

Minnesota's is lame. Too much going on. Chicago should have beat it in the last round. The fact that Chicago didn't win shows some serious bias in voting.

If everyone's second favorite is Minnesota and everyone's first favorite split even between the other teams, they'll get 0 votes among the overall poll but win every head to head match up. It doesn't necessarily mean people are being inconsistent.

How so? If more people liked it, then it got more votes.

Serious bias at work here. That Minnesota Wild Logo lobby controls all the media and opinions on HFBoards. Half the users here have money coming from it. They're a modern-era William Randolph Hearst.

How did the New jersey logo make it to the finals? seriously its awful. I like Minnesotas but i feel there are better logos out there (Blackhawks, Blue Jackets, Leafs )

And for the third round in a row you say that which shows serious bias in your opinion.

No, I'm just part raccoon, part unicorn. A couple other posters are wolfbearcats though.

Minny gets high points for creativity, but the Devils have the finer overall logo. Elegant, well-proportioned, creatively symmetrical, and relevant to both the mascot and the location. Everything was done right.

Edit: I forgot to mention the most important criterion -- Can be drawn by a kid with an 8-pack of crayons.

Because I would put money down on the fact that more Minnesota fans voted than Chicago fans. And that if this poll is done differently, or again in six months or so, the results would be different. The Wild logo is the Scott Glennie of this contest. Flavor of the week. I'm not saying its a bad logo, but there's no way its the best.
