Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

Didn't watch much of Conklin last year, did you?

Sadly, I did. Even so, I didn't want him in Detroit. They are the true enemy.

Jets unveil their logo.



Looks kinda like a minor league baseball team.

I'm a huge air nut, and spent part of my honeymoon at the RCAF air museum in Calgary. I WANT to like it... I like the RCAF logo, the True North of the compass, and of course the Jet.

Something about the combination just doesn't work for me though. Maybe it'll grow on me.

Love the colors. Love the 2 secondary logos. I love the maple leaf. But the jet on top of the leaf makes the leaf look upside down. I would have preferred the wings logo in the upper right as the primary.

Not bad except for the Jet, it should be the most progressive which is the USA stealth fighter... lol

Kidding aside I like their new logo's... modern and forward looking. The Jackets should put the American eagle on their sweater just to be sure everyone knows Columbus is in the USA.

Of course I always did like the F4

Meh. I'm just glad they didn't do one of those wordmark-in-a-circle bits like the WHA team had. Hate those SO MUCH.

I guess this would narrow it down to 2.

I like it, every NHL team should use it until we get some European cities into the league.

Looks unfinished. "What about the jet?" "Oh, let's placeholder it for now."

I wanted to like the top-right one, but the effort involved in just making the sticks a slightly darker shade of gray didn't inspire me. But at least it looks like a weird, owl-like creature that wants to hug you--or kiss you, if only a giant Maple Leaf wasn't covering its dirty mouth.

So the new Jets logo is blue and white and has a maple leaf in the middle. Yeah, good luck winning anything with that.

Older topic, but it looks like it was NYI who were/are after Yashin. So glad it wasn't Howson, although I didn't think it would be. Didn't seem Howson's style.

While we were discussing this logo, somebody pointed something out to me.

We stole a lot of our ****ing logo from Church's Chicken. I'd never noticed it before.





Embarrassing. Why must this team continue to dishonor McConnell's legacy?

They both have a star background with opposite shading. Big woop. I don't see the issue or that much similarity, but, of course, I love our logo.

Columbus stole it from every single person on the planet who has a nautical star tattoo as well, Sam.

Most of y'all are probably aware that I have a good friend who's a Preds fan - he posts as BigFatCat999 on these boards. (He keeps trying to recruit me to Preds fandom full-time, but has yet to get anywhere. )

Part of why I keep him around is because he pulls stunts like this:
