    Thats the only team logo in the NHL that I can think of that doesn't actually have a logo...It just says Ducks.

    Uh...Rangers?

    I actually like it. Modern NHL logos are by-and-large ******ed, IMO.

    Because of the "duckfoot D" it really isn't all that different than the Islanders, Rangers, Stars, Lightning, Maple Leafs, an Blue Jackets who all have their enitre names along with some accompanying graphic to portray the team. This one jsut happens to be tied into the logo. The Islanders and Rangers logos actually have less ties to the team name than the new Ducks logo. I'm not saying I like it a ton, and I'm a Ducks fan, I'm just saying it's not just the word "Ducks".

    Kind of disappointed they didn't go further with the name change. Don't care about the name, just that they could have used it as a marketing thing, create excitement.

    Either way...the logo and the colours are fine.

    I actually like the new logo and uniform. Maybe they can get Cheney to drop the first puck next season. (Was he duck hunting or quail hunting when he shot his "friend"?)

    ;)

    Henry Samuelli didn't want it like that. He wasn't going to change the name to whatever he wanted and create a big marketing deal. He asked the fans, and they wanted Ducks, so that's what they got.

    Their defining logo will likely be that "D" in the shape of a Ducks foot.

    But as the jerseys show, they will have Ducks across the chest.

    Ooops, my bad. Didn't ever look at that blob close enough to realize it was the island.

    That's smart, because if you stare at it too long you'll go blind.

    Logo's too bland....all it is is a variation of their current third jersey logo.

    .com needs to get on the ball. The link to the Ducks site is dead.
