Not a lot of people have something to say about these logos lol No comments yet since this morning... I'll be the first. Like I ever said, I'm not a big fan of the scripts logos then Washington is really not my favorite. I think they could have be much better than this. I know that the team wanted to reach the fans with the old colors and logo but... come on! Another kind of eagle logo or with the White House again could have been really much better. For the Boston Bruins, what can I say... A classic... Do someone knows what's the meaning of the kind of wheel around the "B"?
My vote: Bruins

The 'wheel' is a nod to Oliver Wendell Holmes who referred to Boston (the State House actually) as the 'Hub of the Universe'

This contest was a no-brainer. Nice to see the Capitals dump the 'USPS' looking uni's and get back to their roots but there is no way that logo is going to beat the spoked 'B'. Sure it's undergone some tweaks (for better or worse) over the past decade, but it's still one of the more iconic and class logos in all of pro sports.

Now if only the management would put a team on the ice worthy of those logos and uniforms.

I've done a search in google for your answer and it's really interesting. I didn't know this part of history of your country. It adds more to the Bruins logo. I will never see the logo like before after that. A great research behind this logo. Good job.

*Bruins*

I liked both the Capitals logos better than their *new* look. I liked them alot better. The caps is one of the worst logos in the league now, if you can even call it a logo. The Bruins logo is a classic simple yet beautiful. It has recently been upgraded, it keeps the traditon but it improves a great logo.

my favorite team is the caps bc i live 30 mins away from them but i was so disappointed when i saw the new logo.I like the jersey colors but they should of kept the eagle and just put some blue and red in to it.But my vote still goes to the caps.Go Caps!

i think i said this in another post, but even though i was initially disapointed with the caps logo it has grown on me. i just really think the organization needs to not change it for a long time. if you think about it if the bruins or rangers jersey was released as "brand new" today, people would be very disapointed. just let the caps logo stand for a while (meaning 20-30 years) and see if it gains any prestige or classicness.

Im a huge Boston Bruins fan i love the logo GO BRUINS ur vote is mine

the logo is now more historic the caps is just flat out ugly

I voted Bruins because of the history involved, and because as a stand-alone logo is is simply more centered, stronger, and hits the eye more pleasingly.

Original, the Capitals have never had the White House in the logo. It's the Capitol Building that was in the old logo. The fact that people don't even know this is one of the main reasons it was abandoned. The Caps stayed true to their 90stastic logos with their shoulder patch, which is an eagle with wings in the shape of a "W" and the silhouette of his underside is the Capitol dome, paying homage to both of the logos of the 90s.

Thanks FS for the infos. I always thought that it was the White House but now I see the difference.

I love the new Capitals jerseys, but come on, there is no way that the new Capitals jersey will ever beat the classic (even if modernized) Bruins logo.

Plus, can we even say that is a logo for the Capitals?

LET'S GO CAPS!!!

Word-mark? If you're a Bruins fan, I won't be telling you your logo is bad, the logo is for the fans of the team. That said, as a Caps fan, the Bruins logo is more timeless. However - The new Caps logo is definitely the best of the litter of Caps logos out there, the original I loved, and the new logo being a modernized version of the old one, it's great. The shoulder patch looks awesome as a shoulder patch too, but as a main logo, would be terrible. Anywho, I love my Caps, but it's hard to vote against that Bruin Hub.

Bruins is a classic. Go B's. Regarding the "wheel" around the "B", the 8 spokes in the wheel represent the 8 wins (now 16) that it used to take in the playoffs to win the Stanley Cup.

The winner of this faces Ottawa, right? Why does the sidebar say Ottawa faces the winner of Buffalo/Atlanta?

Thanks for catching my mistake. It's been corrected.
