    I really like the Canucks orca logo. I also kinda like the simple stick logo, in a 70s-retro sort of way.

    I think if you used other colors they could be alright. I do wonder if there is a good marketing possibility there for us to adopt more of a pirate theme within the Hurricanes brand in the future... Red and black could play well with the various pirates (Blackbeard, Barbarossa, etc)

    Don't get me wrong, I don't like any of those concepts, and you can tell they were designed at the same time the Fisherman Isles logo came out, but I wonder where it could have gone if they continued down that path rather than pivoted like they did.

    A pirate theme wouldn't be a bad idea, if they really wanted to get away from the current branding altogether. It ties in well enough to the concept and it has local resonance.

    But... get ready for a cartoon logo. And be careful what you wish for.

    And get ready for them to look like "Disney's Captain Hook on Ice!"

    I mean, look at the logos used by the actual Pirates. Other than the "P" lettermark, they've been absolutely awful over the years.



    Relative to the age of the franchise (and abundant opportunity to get it right, at least once) that might be the worst logo history in all of pro sports.

    The abstract quality that I think many don't recognize: it looks like the eye of a monster.

    It'd be really cool to see them use Blackbeard as he had a very big history in North Carolina.

    I'm not a fan of the flushing toilet logo. Never was. Looked like a quick and cheap cop out. Not much artistic value at all. The storm flags are much easier to identify. Keep the colors though. Juat add more black or pewter.

    I’d stick to a Pirate ship and if you wanted to go pirate, go skeletal pirate. Probably my favorite thing disney related is the skeletal helmsman in the hurricane on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Cool to see other people are favorable to the pirate idea as a secondary option as well.

    What if he had a logo where the Pirate was holding/waving the storm flag. That could be so dope.

    I personally don't care for the pirate idea at all.

    Nor I. It's fine for Cam's mask but beyond that it's just meh. I'm fine with the current logo set as it stands. No need to reinvent something that already works.

    They should go with a Pirate theme with purple and gold as the colors.

    Now, if only they had the Canes Pirate logo play against the Islander's Gorton's fisherman logo....those battles would have been legendary...

    Yeah, that original pirate mask was easily Cam's best mask, pity it cracked, but I think the pirate motifs should probably stay on things like goalie masks and homegrown novelty tee shirts.

    Hmm...color change you say? How about something like this:
    [​IMG]
    No take backs! :p:

    I think, though, with the most recent change to the uniforms I am content with everything. The logo sits real well on a jersey or a t shirt and it's unique and identifiable. I can't really ask for more. Really my concern is if you go through a whole rebrand process starting over from scratch the designers and marketing experts are less likely to give you something like this:
    [​IMG]
    and are more likely to give you an abomination like this:

    I'm not willing to play the odds when I'm fine with what we've got.
