Mailbag: New Sens Logo On CIPO Site

Got some interesting emails from a reader regarding the new look of the Ottawa Senators. He emailed me links to pages on the Canadian Intellectual Property Office web site showing what appears to be the new primary and secondary logos of the Sens.

According to the CIPO, this is the primary logo:

It matches the "leaks" we've been seeing all along. You can link to the CIPO's page directly, here.

And apparently, this is the secondary logo:

This is the first time we're ever seeing this logo. Like I said, the guy who emailed me says this will be the secondary mark. Expect it to be unveiled along with the new primary and Rbk EDGE jerseys on August 22 at Scotiabank Place.

You can link to the page directly, here.

Sorry they're only black and white, but this is what I have to offer. What do you guys think?

By the way, huge thanks to Greg on the awesome find!

UPDATE (4:36 PM): In case anyone was wondering, here's how these two logos might look with a little color splashed on.

I had seen those on two forums most of us frequent. I like both new logos. The secondary one is a definite improvement of the original logo. I was growing tired of it on their road white jerseys. I did see a recolored version of what you posted, Chris.

i think they should be flopped. the new secondary should be the primary and vise versa

i like the new logos but how come the helmet doesn't close all the way on top of the secondary logo?

I think the secondary is suppost to be the primary logo just from a profile view. The helmet doesnt comepletely close on the primary logo so the same occurs in the secondary. I like both these logos. The primary makes more sense compared to the old 3D one (the cape is cool and is better than those random red lines before). The secondary works cause its shaped more like an 'O' for Ottawa and it has a cape as oppose to those spike-wing things on the original. Plus the soldier looks more determined!

i agree with seth. secondary logo kicks ass and should be the primary one.

Howie! said...

completely* apparently i cant spell lol

I agree with seth,howie and anonnymous... Secondary logo should be the first!

fsr said...

I think it's odd how the circle on the primary sits off like it does. Looks incomplete. But I like the chisselled (sp?) look on the senator dude. Maybe if it was just him without the circle?

FWIW, The Gwinnett Gladiators logo looks a lot like the Sens logo, and I think it's way cooler.

if u have a now quadrupel leak 2 of witch on the teams website why not put it up as official on the side bar

Chris said...

The reason I'm not adding it yet is because, in my book, "official" means a public unveiling or announcement by the team. No such thing has come from the Senators at this time.

However, as soon as the logo on their web site changes, so will the one on this site. Anyway, we only have to wait another 9 days since they've said the announcement is coming on August 22.

Thanks for reading and for all the comments, everyone!

Here is an updated color version of the secondary. The outer ring is red not gold.

I colored one too but with a white rim... maybe chris can post them both

Micky said...

i like... i like...

so whats the deal on the Bracket format?
Maybe you could make a poll do see if people want march madness style

Chris said...

Actually, I wish I'd have thought of that before because the problem now is that changing the brackets screws with the schedule.

I'm trying to get as many polls posted in as little amount of time as possible (without posting more than one per day), so the schedule is very specific in order to make that happen. In other words, we'd have to go a full week without any new polls at all in order to switch formats now. I think it'll all work out though.

Thanks for the input though! I hope the bracket format won't be too disappointing to everybody.

Micky said...

I think you can do it, it is sooooo easy to change the bracket. All you gotta do is switch the teams.

As for the schedule it could stay the same, and then you could just fill it in as it is. March madness dosent got in specific order, the games are all over the place. Or you could even change the Sced it cant be that hard?

or is there something im missing

Chris said...

I don't think you're missing anything, Micky. It's me. I'm just lazy like that. Plus I'm trying to keep this as organized as possible so it takes as little time as possible to get through. (I want to do some future tournaments too!) To change it now would only take more time.

And in the grand scheme of things, what does it really matter? Like I said, seeding might as well be random, you know? So I'm not sure it really matters who ends up facing who in each round.

For example, you'd think that the No. 2 seed would pretty much have no trouble with the No. 15 seed. But at the time I'm writing this, the Leafs have 33 votes on the Devils.

So like I said, I know a handful of you think that my write-ups should matter, but as I've said before, I want this one to be for you guys. I'll warm the bench for now.

Also, did I mention I'm lazy?

BOOOOOOO

Wow.....I thought it would take me forever to get used to our new primary one after seeing it weeks back for the first time! WHew! Now that secondary one should definately be the main logo for the OTTAWA SENATORS. I have a hunch that they will make it the primary on the road jerseys.....my initial reaction to the removal of the 3 wings on the old 2d logo was because of the new rbk edge cut....due to the less amount of fabric, they had to cut down. I love the way it dominately spells out an 'O'. Well, go SENS GO! 9 days to go!

Dan said...

I'll learn to live with it, but I'm not happy with the changes. We did not need to change our logo, it was fine how it was. The new primary one is acceptable, not too much was changed, but the new secondary logo is definitely a downgrade from our current primary logo. At least I'll still have the old logo on the back of my car.

Ryan said...

That cape on the secondary logo just feels so tacked on.

There was no need to ever change their uniforms in the first place. The ones they wore in 1992 were fine the way they were.

Ryan said...

Also, that primary logo still looks a bit too much like Dany Heatley for my liking.

Jo said...

LMAO, yeah it does... the secondary is better than the original (other than being somewhat too cartoonish :P) i liked the old version of the primary better
