NHL Concept Logos, Part 2

You know, it occured to me that two months ago, I posted a bunch of concept logos under a headline that read "Part 1." Well you could've searched all day and never found the second part that supposedly followed — until today. I'm finally just now getting around to publishing that post and it's about damn time.

Have a look at some of the craziest logos you'll ever see.

This logo was designed during the "Mighty" era with the old crummy colors. It's nothing special but I felt like it was still worth posting. The duck goalie mask is definitely a Disney design and would therefore never be used now even if the colors were changed to match what the team wears today. Plus it's just not cool enough.

And there's more where that came from. I know you were wondering.

I know the New Jersey Devils don't really need a change and it would be ridiculous for anyone to suggest that they did, but I've got these to share just the same.

Check out these renderings of possible (or impossible) New Jersey Devils logos. Personally, I'm all for leaving the Devils logo the way it is. No reason to mess with perfection there. But I just thought these might be interesting. Any thoughts?

As a special bonus, we've also got an idea of what the Winnipeg Jets might look like if they were still in Winnipeg and not called the Coyotes.

What do you think of this? As far as logos go, I think this one wouldn't work well because it's too open. There need to be more closed-in areas in a logo. This one is all over the place.

Anyway, feel free to comment on these monstrosities if that is in fact how you see them. Don't worry about ever seeing them on NHL ice. It won't happen.

The NJ in the pitchfork is dope-ass. They should adopt that as a shoulder patch.

i believe the jersey logo on the left is modified from the cardiff devils of the elite hockey league in the uk.

I believe you're right! Good eye!

First of all, I'm glad that Ducks logo never ever made it onto any of their old uniforms. Ugh, that's just bad to look at.

I forgot to comment before on the Flames jersey concept in Chris' previous blog post, but I'd have to see it in person as a real jersey. I'd personally rather see Calgary keep what they've had except change the lettering font to Carolina's nameplate font.

As much as I don't like the Devils, I don't see the need to change their current logo to what is seen there.

And as for the Winnipeg Jets concept, I've seen it for a long while now as a gentleman from the Return of the Jets Campaign site (no, not the founder) had posted it. I like it ONLY if the new Jets decided against bringing back their 1990s crest logo. If the Jets do return in the future, they must be re-named as the Jets.
