This is a tough one.. really.. but in the end I have to go with the Pens. Why? I don't know.

Something about it is just a lot more classy.

How does the a cartoon penguin compare to a leaping Panther that looks like it's going to eat you?

shorty said...

Pens...simple as that

The FLORIDA Panthers? Please! They weren't even Florida's first NHL team, so why are they called the Florida Panthers? Because no one wants to be associated with that cesspool that is Miami. I loved it when they came to Tampa and the scoreboard would read Tampa X Miami Y. And if you'll recall the Penguins submitted the beefed up mean skating in your face penguin as a possible new logo and were told by the league it was too violent. Then they suck up to Trashman Huizengua by letting him have this logo? This is much less violent than a penguin, so sayeth the NHL.

This was tough for me, too. Honestly, I think the Panther is a better design -- but I don't like it as much anyway. Something about the 'Thers logo is cheesy, even though it's well designed. Voted Pens.

This is the reason they're called the Florida Panthers, not Miami Panthers ... that, and they're in Ft. Lauderdale, 45 min. north of Miami.

My vote goes to the Florida Panthers. The Penguins logo is really cool too, unfortunately, they face one of the best logo in the league. I know the Panthers are not a powerful team and don't have a big history yet but the panther is too great and well designed.

Sephiroth said...

This is a tought one. In terms of quality, the Panters logo is just awesome. The details and look is maybe one the best in the league.

But the Penguins is sooooo classic. The cutiest logo of the league.

By the way, it's not a tournament about witch team we love and witch team we hate. It's a logo tournament. If it was a team loving thing, the Ducks will lose right now because nobody love them. Oh wait...they will lose anyway!

Hard to choose for this day

Honestly, how can that ugly cartoon penguin compare to that awsome looking panther? I voted Panthers of course.

Mike said...

Sure, if we were to go by Chris' rules for judging logos, the Panthers would win hands down. A panther could certainly devour a penguin - although it would have trouble catching a penguin on ice. The Panther logo is a bit bolder and stronger looking. But, ultimately, the Penguin logo is just cooler looking.

Joe said...

Pens....not even close

Dennis said...

The Panther logo is waaaay too busy...too much detail.

a panther whould eat a penguin in one bite.enough said

Chris said...

classic it may be, the pen's logo is nothing more then a horrible cartoon with an awful pale gold colour. that being said, the over detailed panther's logo is even worse with it's mash-up of colours. depending how you look at it, the panther is either pouncing at you ready to strike...or slowing walking towards you zombie style with really skinny legs and a gigantic upper body. rather then picking with one was better, it came down to which one sucks less. pen's got my vote...barely.

The Pens logo is classic. I like the Panther logo but I agree that's it's too busy for logo. I voted Penguins.

Ashley said...

Pens, definitely.
To me, the Pens logo is a little more simplistic than the Panthers logo, and I prefer the simplicity.
Of course, doesn't hurt that the Pens are one of my favourite teams. :)

Staff said...

how can people use "the penguin is a cartoon" defense?

aren't all of these cartoons?
that panther doesn't look real to me.

just looking at the logos the panther looks cooler they both rep. the teams name well but the panthers by look is a lot cooler so they get my vote even tho i know the pens logo is a classic the panther is a better logo

Kyle said...

This was the toughest one for me so far
In the end I chose the pens logos for two reasons

1. They brought that logo back to signify the start of a new franchise because that was the logo they had in 1991 and 92

2. The triangle behind the penguin represents three rivers: Allegheny, Ohio and Monogahalea and i think it's cool when the logo represents both the team and city.

crl2k6 said...

The Panthers logo is gorgeous in terms of detail and looks, but in the end, It simply shows a panther... If there's ANYTHING else in the logo besides the panther (hidden or clearly visible) it would get my vote, but the fact that the pens have a penguin, playing hockey, and the aforementioned triangle (which i never knew and find quite cool now loll), My vote: Penguins

marcus said...

PANTHERS all the way, the Pens logo is really boring to me... It's been made famous by Crosby and there's no way it's going to lose against the Panthers' logo.
The Panthers have one of the most fierce and dynamic logos in all of sports. It's amazing how many colors they have in there and they really pull it off. LOVE IT!

what is with people saying the pens logo is to much like a cartoon. just look at the panthers logo, in the movie the lion king when scar jumps through flames to get to simba at the end of the movie when they are fighting, it is the exact pose and look of the panthers logo, and that is a cartoon, isn't it? and i hate scar he killed mufasa, so my vote goes to the pens, plus i love the penguins. the pens logo has not been made famous by crosby, its looked that way for years and is a classic. go pens!

Anonymous said...

everyone is voting pens! come on people its a logo tourny, not the sidney crosby popularity contest

Anonymous said...

the pens logo is the best in hockey and i think one of the best in sports. it is a classic that is a great logo

Anonymous said...

yeesh, this isn't even a contest.

the panthers logo is hideous. too many colors. poor perspective. the previous comment was right -- it doesn't look at all like it's "pouncing", as there is absolutely NO depth of field in the logo. it's a tiny-bodied cat with a huge upper body + head.

the pens logo is just plain excellent. the gloves have always bugged me, though.

there logo from 92-01 was the hands down best in the leauge at least they keep it on the shoulder ands its playable in most NHL games but if it was the older one i would say pens this one doesnt look mean at all it makes it look like a kids league logo so im going with the panthers

Anonymous said...

It is a logo contest! the pens one is better. what is with people saying crosby has anything to do with this contest. well at least i know now that everyone who thinks crosby has anything to do with us liking the logo is a complete jackass. we have had this logo well before crosby and if people voted for it then, you guys probably would have said it is because of mario. man some people are so jealous of the penguins it is so funny and pathetic what half of them say about crosby. if they had him on there team they would love him. PENS LOGO IS A CLASSIC! i am a graphic designer so i know something about logos and the panthers logo is way to busy. in a logo the more detail you use the harder it is to see when it is reduced in size. although whom ever made the panther is an excellent artist, it just doesn't work as a logo.

dave said...

the pens logo was made famous by mario lemieux, not sidney crosby

the panthers logo is just a picture of a panther. boring.

Paul said...

This was a very tough choice to make, but if I had to choose, I'd go with the Panthers logo based on detailing, good use of color and it's an easy logo to recognize.

Don't get me wrong, I really like the Penguins logo as well, but if I am to vote, I cannot sit on the fence. I'm happy with my choice.

And another thing, can we please leave the personal issues with Sun Belt teams out of this?

wade little said...

Florida logo has great detail and attitude... just flat out better than the Pens' logo. Not that I don't like the Pens' logo.

Anonymous said...

Pens all the way. I dont really like the Panthers color scheme and the logo doesnt really work for me. Off topic, is it just me, or does the Panthers tail look like its representing a different part of a Panthers anatomy? :oP

The Lone Yinzer said...

Pens all the way. There's something old school about the Pens, and it's a classic design that has more connotations of old time hockey and the glory years of the NHL. The Panther just looks white trash and early 90's in all the wrong ways, much like Vanilla Ice.

Micky said...

*Penguins*

My first hard decision of the tourney. I like the Panther logo its ferice and cool but the pens is simple, classic and beautiful.

I think it comes down to the colors and i like the pens colors much better.

Anonymous said...

Panthers logo is better, people are only voting for it cause of sidney crosby, Florida handsdown has the BEST LOOKING LOGO in the NHL. Give me a break pens looks classic, how many jersyes and logos have they had?? Pens are garb

Anonymous said...

Pens all the way...

both do a good job with references to their respective areas (the Panther being indigenous to the area, and the golden triangle referring to a nickname for Pittsburgh)

I vote Pens because its more classic, and I think that the panther is both a corny nickname considering 20394820934 teams are the "Panthers" in sports. Also, the whiskers and some details of the Panther are pretty cheesy, typical of the early 90s.

People who think people vote Pens b/c of Crosby are retarded and forget that Lemieux, the GREATEST (that's right i said it) player to ever play the sport built this franchise. Typical responses from bad hockey markets that have nothing to gush about...oh wait...yall had Pavel Bure right?

Gentgeen said...

Lets just look at the logo -

Florida Panthers, Hmm, what should they have - A PANTHER... OOOOOO I am not impressed.

Pittsburgh Penguins, Hmm, what should they have - A penguin... OK we are tied at this point BUT

Pens include the hockey stick, the golden triangle (what Pgh is called 'cause of the rivers), and the Black 'n Gold - Remember that every team in Pgh is Black 'n Gold. (Extra points to the Pens for even have a "black 'n gold" mascot)

Panther.. too simple, too general. Reminds me of a High School sports logo/mascot. Penguins with the original name, and original logo gets my vote.

if only these 2 logos didnt meet this soon. both are great and would have beat almost any other logo paired against it.

I love the Penguins logo. I have always loved that Pens logo.
