I like the logo.
Out of the two would take the Kachina but would prefer a total redesign. An angry coyote (I mean rabies angry) and add in a cacti. We need to get meaner.
Im picturing Tocchet hitting the team bus with an ax, like the Slap Shot scene. “‘Making it look mean!”
Is this just a fun thread or is there actually talk about this happening?
Loved the originality of both the Kachina jersey and the green cactus. Thought the execution was lacking in both. The kachina head is one of the best logos in sports IMO. Would have liked more sand colour. Sadly I have no abilities to design / alter a design to what I think would work better.
Those green jerseys with the cacti on them were the pinnacle of late 90s sports jersey aesthetics. If they brought them back I would wear the hell out of it.
I like both logos as long as it's just the heads; the rest of the kachina body is a bit too wonky and too many colors. The older leaping coyote alternate jersey logo is alright too, but the rest of the jersey didn't do much for me. Maybe just have multiple jerseys in the end. I'm less favorable to the A paw secondary and if I had my way we'd go back to being the Phoenix Coyotes.
Oh, and additionally, use the moon logo at center ice of course, but that's a given.
Fugly. Way too busy. The best unis in the league are clean.
I want the green Kachina head jersey as the home unis and pre-Barroway white coyote head as our away. The old green 3rd jersey is stunning and our very best. I like the Gretzky white jersey because it is a clean look, without distracting stripes, etc.
I hated the kachina it’s first go around. I love it now. A jersey ahead of its time.
Kachina all the way.
Coyote head is the most generic logo possible. It is early 2000’s ownership begging to be let in the hockey club by going as non- offensive as possible. It is a copy cat - trying to be a cool kid by dressing like them.
Nuts to that. Embrace your campiness and uniquitude, and wear that green jersey with pride. More cacti and more pattern and more colors. Death to trying to be the red wings.
While we are at it, lose the organ (in the AZ and all points south). That is the dumbest relic of hockey culture. We can all sorts of live and recorded music.
Pred fan with a soft spot for the 'Yotes here. This is exactly what we did while we were looking for our identity. We were never going to be Detroit so we fully embraced the southern college football atmosphere. I always liked the Kachina jerseys and hope you guys bring them back long term.
I've always liked these concepts.
Third one kind of looks like the U of A logo.
I've been trying to buy a kachina jersey from IceJerseys for awhile now but they're always sold out. I'm sure they didn't stock enough to begin with because they underestimated the popularity of that jersey. Hell even traditional market fans love that jersey, if you leave out nostalgia I wouldn't be surprised if it's the most popular design in the NHL.
It would be nice to see the kachina be the primary logo. But that's just me.
If we win the top pick, we’ve got to bring the Kachina to the draft.
I will personally drive from Maine to Vancouver and hand deliver a Kachina jersey to the Yotes if we win the top pick this year.
Appeal of the Kachina jersey is that it is worn infrequently - and it should stay that way. It's an amazing jersey that should be appreciated now and then, but it would lose its appeal if it was full-time.
Current logo is simple and classic/clean. Keep it.
I actually miss the 'running Coyote' thirds.....
Our team identity needs to change if we get new ownership. Something brand new, something localized, something distinctive. Something to wash the taste of a decade plus of carpetbaggers in charge out of the mouth. Something that screams "ARIZONA!" rather than meekly whispering, "canada."
Why does the brand need to change yet again ? It's not the logo or jerseys that keep people from filling up the building...
The brand is 15 years old at this point, and over that stretch of time the team has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. A rebrand helps suggest a new beginning, especially if it's part of the advent of a new owner or ownership group that is ostensibly dedicated to keeping this team in-state.
I disagree completely. The appeal of the kachina is how great it looks, how unique it is, and how it fits with the location of our team. We should go full kachina, maybe keep the current home Jersey as a third. Or not.
The issue isn’t the brand needs to change again, the issue is it should’ve never changed to begin with.
We are not a traditional market, we should embrace that.
