Is none of the above an option?

I've just always felt that this logo could have been more aggressive in its design.

I, on the other hand, would vote for all of them if I could.

Whoever is running this site doesn't know the history of the blackhawks logo too well. the current logo was added in 1996 I believe (could be off by a year or so). previous one was slightly different, bordered in tan/yellow and did not appear to be so "digitized."

Take a look at the photo of Denis Savard linked below:

Then compare it to the latest logo.

Figured I should say something on my own behalf. A logo like the one used by the Blackhawks, which has been around for many years, is bound to go through various adjustments and tweaks along the way. That doesn't mean I don't know the history of the logo.

The "digitized" look, which is really just cleaned up, is impossible to avoid here. You're looking at it on a computer screen. Zeroes and ones make up every bit of what you're seeing. Not the point.

Obviously, I can't create an option on the poll for every minor tweak that's been made to the logo over the years. I'd go mad. I did, however, offer another Indian head option from years ago.

Hopefully that clears things up! Thanks for voting!

Well, I suppose you could call the changes tweaks, but there are some differences. In addition to the border being all black on the new one, the "digitized" look has to with the feathers. Take a look at the picture of Tony Esposito linked here:
