No it is not. The San Jose logo is the most amateurish logo EVER. The only thing worse was the Ducks Disney movie logo, but at least they changed that...and San Jose Sharks never even had a movie, there logo just sucks lol


What logo would you suggest for a team called the Sharks?

I think the Bruins could make a sweet logo with a ravage bear holding a hockey stick, but then you run into the problem of changing an O6 logo.


Yeah, imagine if Jeremy Jacobs up and bought the Maple Leafs, and merged the two clubs into the Boston Maple Leafs... we'd be looking at something like this:

The San Jose Sharks were reportedly just as confused by the Blackhawks logo, failing to understand what a somewhat racist representation of a Native American had to do with hockey


How is a picture of a native american in traditional garb "somewhat racist"?
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Har Har har.

You do know that the Sharks are the only MAJOR TEAM in San Jose right? Just making sure.

San Francisco- 49ers, Giants

Oakland- Warriors, A's, Raiders

San Jose- Sharks

The Bay area doesn't mean one city.

Their all one to two hours away from each other.

You know, to be honest, I love the Red Wings and all but just look at our logo ... what the hell is that?
A wheel and wings ... wheels for ground/cars ... wings for flying ...
Logos are logos ... sometimes, they don't make sense.

For some reason I really like the Blackhawks' logo. Out of all the jerseys, their primary logo and their shoulder logos have the best synergy, I would argue. And that will be the last nice thing I saw about them.

The worst logo is by far the Carolina one. Their third jersey should be their primary. WAY BETTER, even though that flag technically means "storm warning." You'd need two for it to mean hurricane.

The best jersey ever is the third of Buffalo. I really love the design of that one, putting aside the sentimental attachment we have to the Winged-wheel. If I had money to burn, I'd get it just for fun.

Apparently you'll have to ask the University of North Dakota that question...their sports teams, called the Fighting Sioux, have a logo that's very similar to the Blackhawks', and the school is going to change both the name and logo next year because they're supposedly "racist."

Here's the logo:

Yeah...don't ask me. I don't get it either.

Anyway, I think the Sharks' logo is pretty cheesy, but I'd vote for the Thrashers' as the worst. Lame animal, check. Lame animal with hockey stick, check. Lame animal with hockey stick that has nothing whatsoever to do with the name of the team, check.

I think the whole racist thing comes from comparing a fierce/fighting creature like a "shark" to a real-life culture of people who were misrepresented for a long time as being "wild" and "unruly" and a good mascot for "intimidating" the opposing team. For example, the entire "Sioux" culture probably has more to offer than a group of fighting people known as the "Fighting Sioux."

I don't think it's too big deal and I actually think the Chicago uniforms look awesome. But I think we can all agree that the Washington "Redskins" is a tad racist, no?

Chiming in from ND here. My bf, Godson, and one of my best friends are all Native. There is no consensus amongst any tribe around here, and most people are kind of torn.

The objections are:
-Using a race of people as a mascot, especially one which stereotypes them as violent people.
-Using, or more frequently, misusing what whites believe to be Indian traditions (but the whites have them totally screwed up) like fancy dances or war cries.
-Placing people (especially young people) in the uncomfortable position of being "mascots" because of their race (usually in the eyes of drunk idiots who are cheering for opposing teams).

Imagine being an Ojibwe and bringing your child to a game. You are just another family out for a good time, but nearby idiots see Native people and assume that just because you are there that you are Sioux and spend the game yelling "Sioux Suck" with the opposing crowd, but then harass you and your kid by continuing to tell you that you suck. Or imagine being Sioux and having to sit through people yelling "Sioux Suck".

It's the idiots that ruin it for the rest of us. If it was like the Steelers or Packers where the teams were named to honour the people who made the city the success that it is today, it would be fine. Unfortunately, it is used more like an animal. Go back to the photoshop wars from the Coyote series and imagine that instead of dead dogs there were dead people in Native garb.

Personally, I could go either way with it, but no matter what they have for a logo, the insensitive people should be taken out and flogged.


As far as logos, I think the Preds logo looks stupid, but at least they got a colour that doesn't look like poop.

I dont have a problem with the shark, obviously. The colour should go (the worst shade of green lol), I would suspect some sort of blue(though thats been done) with black and grey. Also some intimidating silhouette of a shark, or even the Jaws they skate out of when dark in the arena would suffice(not unlike the cover of Mr. Benchley's famous book). To be honest alot of things would look better, the current logo just looks like a cartoon to me.

Buffalo's 3rd jersey design will be their primary next year.. Finally. Enough with the stylized buffalo slugs. Also, the color scheme that Vancouver employs now is from their original uni set, with the original logo on the shoulder. A better question is, why do they find it necessary to have their logo and their city name on their jersey? Who does that? Additionally, why wouldn't it at least say 'CANUCKS' when they're in Vancouver? Tradition dictates that it's city name on the road and team name at home.

The Sharks uniform is better looking now than it has even been in their entire existence. Their colors were teal/black/grey/white for a short time and it was horrible. Why every early-to-mid 90's team had to include teal in their uniforms is beyond me.
