im voting for wild wing, mainly because the bear/cat/rabid racoon head was intended to be fierce and not cartoony, and wild wing, well he was a cartoon character and has no business being on the front of an NHL jersey

Antoine said...

I'm voting for the Duck, cause it was intended at the main crest of the shirt..

At least, the small racoon/wolf/pig
was a shoulder crest

Poulad said...

if im not mistaken, kids play and watch hockey too.. that duck is cool for the kids, what other jersey has a fierce character breaking out of the bottom of the jersey?? mighty ducks is a classic trilogy.. if not professional it was at least unique.

.. that raccoon bear on crystal meth is just horrible

Nicolas said...

While the tournament's format assures us that the 'winner' is the absolute worse, that doesn't mean that the other logo presented here is the second worse. Technically, the second could have face the absolute worse somewhere along the way and be already eliminated.

Bill said...

no, the absolute worst logo will win the tournament because thats how it works, if its the worst logo you vote for it.

Darryl said...

the ducks are winning? i mean sure its bad.....but look at the bear, thats terrible.

Arenacale said...

At least the Ducks logo is related to hockey and drawn rather well, and would look cool on a poster. The head-of-random-creature just gives kids nightmares. Bruins should take this one.

Q said...

yeah, I remember I was like 11 when that ducks sweater came out and I thought it was one of the best in the league...

NHL Jeff said...

Bill,
I'm pretty sure that's what Nicolas said, that the tournament format ensures that the worst wins, but not necessarily that the finals is between the first and second worst because, theoretically, the worst could have already faced the second worse earlier in the tournament.

Emo said...

This is a tough one, really. Honestly, I think the bear is worse, but i know its simplicity and vintage charm will edge the horrifying ridiculousness of Wild Wing. Oh well. At least the bruin stuck it out til the end.

bryan said...

Is the 2008 Quest for the Worst really over? Really??? wonder what the next topic will be about.

As for pick, gotta go with the Duck.

Bob said...

There's no contest here. I'll pick the duck over the tiger/bear by at least 35%

Charles said...

Have to go with the Duck. The Bruins tiger/bear/racoon does show how simple the logos were of the
70s. Go back and look at other leagues logos in that same era and they are pretty bad. Look at the old World Football League and the North American Soccer League they had some really bad logos.

Washington said...

i agree that the bruins logo was just a victim of its time. probably overzealous attempt in getting more detail, where they didn't have the capacity to really do so.
That Wild Wing is a victim of bad taste. Although it *might* look good on a poster, does anybody really want to wear a poster on their jersey?

The Bruins logo looks like it was drawn by a four year old. But the Ducks logo is just dumb... I'm torn
