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


The traditional Royal Canadian Air Force emblem is a blue roundel with a maple leaf and Winnipeg has had a strong association with the RCAF, so in the case of the Jets there's actually a legitimate reason for having it beyond 'it looks old-timey'.

Speaking of which, if the uniforms have a vintage-military-hockey-club feel to them it could actually look pretty damn good.

I don't hate it. It just doesn't really jump out at you at all.

EDIT: I'm with the rest of you. I think adding some script/text inside the blue circle would add to it a little more

I'd probably remove the little cutout at the top of the blue circle, add "Winnepeg" to the top, and "Hockey Club" to the bottom of the circle. It's too plain right now.

I always liked this guy's design...I thought the concept was really well thought out:

The fact that it's plain is what I like about it. I hope it's their primary logo.

WTF? :blink:

I was under the impression they were going to use the old logo. This logo sucks compared to that.

Yup - it indeed does suck when compared to the old logo.

^ I don't mind that logo. Simple, sharp and classic hockey style.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I think the old logo sucked. A boeing 757 on the logo compared to a fighter jet? Come on people, there are a lot of people in Canada who like the logo alot because it symbolizes the military forces in Canada, not to mention the majority of people who dont like it are Americans, Its only a logo, who cares. When that team steps into the MTS Center Arena (Smallest arena in NHL) - that atmosphere is going to be insane and that logo will grow on everyone really quick.

Kinda tough to say one way or the other until I see it on a jersey. Initial thought though is that I would probably lump it in the middle as far as the Canadian teams are concerned along with Calgary & Edmonton. Maybe slightly ahead of those two but not as good as the Leafs & Habs & certainly better than the Sens & that ridiculous Orca the Canucks use.

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.


Ditto for Illustrator, but I really dislike it. The maple leaf and jet combined are too confusing, and when squinting it looks only like a maple leaf. Isn't there already a team with the maple leaf... yeah the Maple Leafs.

I just don't like it that much, I think it could be better; but that's what makes the world go 'round I guess.

Edit: I might dislike it less if they didn't steal my Thrashers away from me!

Personally I like it, but then again I'm from Winnipeg and I'm in the Air Force....so I may be biased toward liking it. I have a couple buddies and even the wife that say it's too military and they don't like it. I then told them that the Jet is the National Defence aircraft of the Canadian Forces and our team is the Jets....how much more Air Force can a name be?? The owners stated that they were going to remake the symbol and jerseys when they agreed to leave the team as the Jets. I told the people who don't like the new logos, if you didn't want the prospect of a military like symbol, then you shouldn't have voted to keep the name "Jets" when you knew we wouldn't be the same Jets of old.

Though the circle symbol could use Winnipeg Jets or even just Jets in it to slightly spice it up and give it the identity of the Jets and not just a remake of the Air Force logo with a Jet in it. Aside from that, I like all 3 and will buy all 3 jerseys when I get a chance to and the money to do so.

Uhh.. That little notch is like a compass point. Pointing North. "True North" if you will...

I like the new logos but I'll admit I love the old logos.
