Looks like it was made by an elementary school student with Microsoft Paint.

The Whale one is too kiddy for me, but I still like it better.

Wish they just knocked off the Whalers if they were going to be going back this route.
I voted Whale. I agree water-wolf is just silly. Why couldn't they just replace wolf with whale on the same design (keeping it in the water), change the lettering and be done with it??

I also prefer the Whale logo. I just wish they'd remove the semen spout from his head.

The Whale logo really isn't that bad. The Wolf Pack logo is horrible.

Even Killer Whales are hard to make look mean. Putting a hockey stick in their fins is just dumb.

They both kinda suck. The Wolf Pack's is better by far, but it still sucks. So the Whale is just pathetic, in my opinion. Looks like something in one of those semi-pro leagues.

lol Same with what the Panthers did their old away (?). The freaking cat jumping at you with a broken stick. Just so childish. Not to mention the new Sharks logo, as well.

I don't mind the childish-ness of it because it's for an AHL team. I'd never approve of it for an NHL team, but for the A? No problems with it.

Looks like the artist who designed that logo took the water coming out of the spout from a clip art I just found using google image seach when I was trying to look for cooler whale logos.

Could it be perhaps, that the notion of a whale exhaling from its blowhole is really just a commonly known fact?


That'd be like googling lightning and saying the designer of their jersey took the idea from lightning coming out of the sky.

I think he's saying it's the same spout, not that the idea of the spout was taken. A close look seems to confirm it. It's just inverted.

I'm pretty sure the Wolf Pack name and logo are a reference to the Groton, CT Submariners. Groton is known as the "sub capital of the world" - and not for their sandwiches.

The original Whalers logo was good. The Whale? Is this serious? Will our youth be besmirched by wearing that thing? Ugh.

I believe it's mid-season. Which is the most asinine part of the whole thing.

Gotcha, I interpreted what he was saying wrong then.

Yeah I don't know anything about the origins of the name or anything. It is odd to me though that the Wolf Pack logo had a land animal drowning to death in the water, and now they've actually got an animal that SHOULD be in water and it's dying a slow and painful death stranded on the letter C.

Ah well, at least Pucky can take one last slap shot before he dies.
