I was always wondering when a team would try to get in on the Military theme. Nothing makes you more popular in America than suggesting you care about the troops. Nothing.

Bettman should make sure then next team in America has a military theme, then it might not actually fail.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Are circular blue logos becoming mandatory in the NHL these days? Seems like every team is introducing a logo like this.

I like it, but then again I am an airplane geek :ph34r:
"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

Disagree. Their old logo sucked.

This one's OK, would be better if there was something in the blue circle. I love the script though.


If "Winnipeg Jets" was in the blue circle I think id like this much more. Love the "jets" script though.

Why would they use the maple leaf? I get that they are a Canadian team and that they will never win a Cup, but why do they need to further associate themselves with Toronto.

Don't care for them.

The use of the maple leaf calls back to old Royal Canadian Air Force flier patches. As seen in the ideation portion of the brand book that they posted on the website. You can see the theme repeated throughout the logos seen on the page. To me, it just reinforces how badly they missed the mark.

They tried to create a vector update of a classic looking badge and included only enough detail to put on display how much detail it truly lacks. It appears unfinished. I don't know why it doesn't say Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club around the crest, either. It honestly looks like it was put in the hands of someone that isn't strong with Illustrator.

I actually don't mind it- I think its a decent logo but in all honesty, it could look brilliant or terrible on a uniform. I want to see it on a jersey with all the patchwork before I decide. At first glance, i think it looks ok. Its certianly 100 percent better than the thrashers scary psycho bird they had!

I really hope they get in the Northwest division, Samuelsson will have a nice target to aim for.

Considering the instinctive reaction to a new Jets logo would be to hate it, they actually did quite well with this. Most comments from fans I've seen, especially of the Jets fans themselves, actually like it a lot.

I also give props to True North for being smart enough to use the Jets name but also bold enough to come up with something new to signify the new era.

The word logo leaves much to be desired but it will be the least commonly used. The shoulder patch (top right I'm assuming) is real solid and the crest is good. The colour scheme is rather unique with those dark reds and blues and it feels like it will look like an old school type of sweater once it's put on a jersey. Can't wait to see it in action.

You can take it to the bank that at some point in the future they'll introduce a 3rd jersey with the old logo though.

I need to look into this... but I don't think they own the rights to the old merch or logo...

I am 95% sure that the rights to that belongs to Coyotes, which belongs to the NHL... I never heard of them making a deal to acquire the rights to the old name or logo... which perplexes me.

Wouldn't it be funny if all the money they make selling old Jets stuff, or a portion of new Jets money (because they are using the name...,) end up going to the yotes?

I would laugh... but does anyone know how this meshes up legally?


The rights belong to the NHL and commissioner, however Bettman has said it was Winnipeg's if they wanted it.

I like it a lot. And, their merchandise is flying off the shelves.

I like the primary logo, and this comes from a guy that uses Illustrator every single day in my profession. It's clean, it's simple. Looks good. Not overly fond of the "winged" secondary one and the logotype for the other will have to grow on me.

Yeah, compared to the logo in the bottom right, the new Jets logo looks like a quick draft or sketch. I wonder if they even saw that old logo...its fantastic!
