The similarities in these logos are interesting. Both feature white, black, a deep jewel tone and an off-white color — purple and silver for the Kings, brick red and sand for the Coyotes. I was a fan of the original Coyotes logo so I didn't understand why they'd planned to change it. Still, I wasn't completely disappointed with the result. For me, it wins out over the Kings.
The same way it had the predator killed, the King could easily have one of his minions take out any Coyote that might wish him harm. Easily.
Okay seriously, could the Coyotes have come up with a better name for the team when it moved from Winnipeg? I doubt it. While I'm not sure what relevance kings have to Los Angeles, it does make a good name for a sports team. The Coyotes get the point just by a slight margin.
