The Senators logo makes much more use of color than the Maple Leafs. Another thing that detracts from the Maple Leafs logo is, as always, the words spelled out. I believe it was in the '70s or '80s that the Leafs actually donned a wordless Leaf on their uniform shoulders. What ever happened to that?
If a Senator, walking down a sidewalk, stepped on a Maple Leaf that had fallen from a tree, he would no doubt crush it with a crackle.
Despite the fact that I like the use of a design similar to the Canadian flag's primary element as the Maple Leafs logo, I always go back to my distaste for logos which spell out a name and/or city. But I'd settle for something even a little more interesting to the eye. The logo used on the third jerseys is a good example of what can be done. And even though I like the Senators logo, it wouldn't hurt if they did the same. They're third jersey crest is one of the best. Ultimately, however, they do get this point.
