Whaaat a duel now. I'm curious to see what people will think of that. My listening room is make with the colors of the Calgary Flames, and for me their crest is one of the sharpest thing in the league.

But seeing the Head of that Indian made me rethink of that. After watching the real crest of my red Blackhawks jersey besides my Calgary one (black version), I have to go with the Indian.

Unfortunately that the Blacks have folded many years ago.

Two great logo's.

Calgary's always had a great silhoette.(Transfers to print well)
Improved with black added.
However...
...it's Chicago for me.
Multiple colours contained in subdued skintone and black hair for balance.

Too COOL!

MIke said...

Wow, this is close. I'm a huge fan of the Blackhawks logo and uniforms but the Flames have a pretty classy look too. Their logo is terrific. Ultimately, though, I have to go with the BHawks if for no other reason then the teams have been so pathetic for so many years, that they deserve to at least win at something.

Gotta be the Blackhawks, a beautiful logo that just looks so good on the jersey, classy. I feel for the flames as that is a nice logo too that has been relatively left alone and blossomed but c'mon how can the Blackhawks not win this or just about any matchup (only the Habs logo is better in my opinion).

Flames logo for sure, better composition, simplicity, aggressiveness, and consistency. The Hawks logo has too many colors IMO, and is a little bit politically questionable.

The indianhead is the greatest logo in sports history.

The Blackhawks logo has been voted the best in sports, let alone hockey, in some recent 'professional' poll, sorry I can't prove it. This should be no contest

Green Manalishi said...

Gotta be the Hawks, this IS THE BEST LOGO, in any league.

alltherage said...

GO FLAMES GO!

Anthony said...

The Hawks for sure. It's just classic.

Flames Rock!

yea, the hawks logo is just too classic to lose. one of the best in the league easily

I hate the stupid yellow in the BHawks logo's hair. It makes the shape of a swirl and a bone or something. Ugly. Flames all the way.

Unfortunately these polls are never fair. A Canadian team will all win in the first round, I have no doubt about it. Their is absolutely no comparison between the two logos. One is an absolute classic, and one is a black c with flames on it.

It's a poll man, if more canadians vote, so be it, but there wouldn't be a bias just because its a canadian team.

I wouldn't vote for the Oilers or Canucks or ANY Canadian team just because they are Canadian!

Wow not even close the hawks by a landslide....
A stupid flaming c? Wow a 5 year old could come up with that..

Robert said...

Lets see, on one hand if you turn the Flames logo 90 degrees clockwise it looks like the head of a Simpson's character. Turn it 90 degrees counterclockwise and it looks like a cartoon octopus. The last thing it looks like is a flame, especially being black.

On the other hand you have the greatest logo in sports history.

Tough choice.

Orignal said...

Hawks on this one. A really beautiful logo. I'm a fan of details on logos but not too much and I the the Chicago's one really great, well done.
I hope people won't vote for their team just because it's their team and will play fair, it's for pleasure. I'm a Habs fan and despite it's a great classic logo, I think that he's really not the best.

Anonymous said...

its a stupid picture of an indian screw classic the Flames is pretty good

Anthony said...

I'm a Canadian, and I voted for the Hawks. haha

( The yellow in the hair is the sun reflecting off of it. As if to say that Native American hair is shiny/glistens in the sun, which is true.)

I still don't get how the Flames are winning.

Kyle said...

the hawks are only down by 3 but the gap is gonna open soon the same happened with the devs and leafs
but anyway i voted blackhawks because the flames logo is just a flaming C, that's not creative at all
also i like how the blackhawks logo is just so different than every other logo in the league and that it portrays chief blackhawk

Anonymous said...

I voted for the Blackhawks. I find the Flames' C to be boring.

Anonymous said...

I've never liked people in logos so I had to with the flames.

Glen said...

I've never liked the Hawks logo, so flames for me.. The black one they introduced on the red jerseys just screams solidity and class.

Love it, and I'm a born and bred Edmonton fan.. or, was. Sharks all the way since 1991, but Edmonton is next in line.

where's chris? i wanna see some concepts...

Both logos are very good, very sharp. but there's just something about the blackhawks logo, not sure what, that just makes it a better symbol

i hate the Flames, so Blackhawks was the only choice

Anonymous said...

The flaming c is fug and is only outdone by the their farm teams faming q (appropriate isn't it).

The Blackhawks have of the best logos in pro-sports, let alone the NHL. It isn't even a contest.

Ted Dibiase said...

Best logo in sports.

Chicago Blackhawks.

Blackhawks hands down. O6, lets all get real here. La Flamme - inherited Southern white trash.

Kyle said...

this post here isn't about this particular poll but it's about the poll that will open in about 4 hours
i was looking around on the net and i found out that the "I" in Islanders points exactly to where Nassau Coliseum is located in Long Island
I dunno about u guys but that's gonna change my vote
i love little secret things inside of a logo that make it so, different

Anonymous said...

who wants to look at a "classic" indian head, man thats brutal, FLAMES ALL THE WAY!!!

Anonymous said...

Calgary. I prefer classy and simple logos.

E said...

How in the world are the Hawks a 14 seed? This is worse than the NCAA Selection Committee.

The Hawks, last I checked had not only top-5 uniforms, but one of the most favored logos in all of sports, not just by the fans, but also favored by athletes.

Even the Hockey News, last time it did one of those league-wide surveys ranked the Hawk logo/uniform really high.

How are the Hurricanes and Avs seeded so high?

alltherage said...

Chris already explained that the Avs and Canes get a free pass by random selection. Read the blog, kids.

Micky said...

*Blackhawks*

Hey Chris, i agreed with most of your games, but i always thought you werent giving the blackhawks their respect. It was actualy a tough call. The flames have a very cool (hot in this case) logo. That said the Hawks have a great classic looking logo. I love the color scheme, its original and beautiful

Mr. Bob said...

Flames Burn Everything.....
But I voted for the 'hawks

Mutt said...

Flames should take this based on logo quality alone, but Chicago has a strong original 6 following it seems.

Anonymous said...

Calgary flames all the way
classy logo doesn't need much to make it look good.
CALGARY ALL THE WAY

Anonymous said...

There is no quality in the design of the Flames logo...it is a flaming black C, that just oozes with quality. The Blackhawks logo on the other hand is a well designed logo, not a letter, and contains many accent colors, yet still looks professional. How the hell can you even call a letter a team logo anyways. the Blackhawks secondary logo is better than the flaming C.

In Illinois there is a 100 food Stone statue of Chief BlackHawk looking over the Rock River... its a true story about how the Chief lost his wife and child who drowned falling off a canoe in the deep river and he followed their fate trying to save them.

I pass by it many times a year.. when traveling to my summer home. The logo actually has REAL meaning behind it and they have stuck by it all these years.

Anonymous said...

As a Flames fan - I'm a bit confused at the.. support... for the Calgary logo. Yes, it is simple - but that translates well to print. But have you seen the Chicago logo in black/white? It looks even better!

Everything the Flames logo does, the Chicago logo does it better. Forget the statements of original six, class, Canadian, old, etc... The Chicago logo is just better - and I say that again as a Flames fan.

Anonymous said...

the calgary logo i find is quite simple but that is how we like it easy to reprint for our car flags and easy to paint on our faces. The logo easily outstrips that of chicago especially when you see thousands of them in the sea of red.plus a strange indian head is just not my taste.

You do know that you can buy already made car flags rather than drawing your own, right?

The Flames logo is OK in it's simplicity but lacks in originality. Hawks is classic and eye-catching - but I have to admit that it is tough to draw... ;-)
