"The term wolf pack refers to the mass-attack tactics against convoys used by German U-boats of the Kriegsmarine during the Battle of the Atlantic and submarines of the United States Navy against Japanese shipping in the Pacific Ocean in World War II."

If they're gonna change half way through the season shouldn't they have started with a whale eating a wolf? Each month there could be less and less of the wolf...until finally it is just the whale...of course, how the whale caught the wolf is a little unclear...but if the wolf is stupid enough to play in the ocean then I guess it deserves what it gets....

NOW... imagine... the whale coming out of the wolf's butt a little at a time...

It's depressing. Some of you actually voted for the whale logo? WTF?

But, I just don't see a reason to rebrand a franchise like that. Wolf Pack have been there for what? 10+ years? And they've been very successful overall, as well.

This really is for those Whalers fans looking for some solace.
Both logos are bad, however, the Whale is worse. The reason to rebrand is really quite simple; although the Wolfpack have been successful on the ice, attendance has been declining to the point where they are now one of the lower drawing teams in the AHL. MSG also blew it when they originally named the team. Wolfpack is just about the worst possible name that you could use for a team in Hartford. Anyone in Connecticut could tell you that the sub base in Groton is not considered to be near Hartford and you are also giving the team the same nickname as the college that shares the arena in North Carolina with the former Whalers.

The wolfpack logo was badass, it looked like a rabid wolf now their a whale, the whole thing is just a massive and if it was done solely for the profit of new merchandise and what not, the jerseys are awful and the logo looks terrible I'd be embarrased to wear that on a shirt.

I think Howard Baldwin had visions of thousands of Connecticut dads buying the new Whale jerseys for their 8-year olds.

What he didn't figure was that they'd wear them to school the next day, get laughed at & beat up, and then never want to wear them again.
