Odd NHL logos

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I'm puzzled as to certain aspects of logos.

Why is there an H in the Canadiens logo? Is it supposed to stand for hockey?

Why does the Ottawa Senator have wings?

Why does the Blues logo have so many flags (or whatever you call them)? 6 flags, would that be a 256th note?

Who in the world made that awful Nordiques logo? Is that supposed to be an igloo chopped in half by a pooper scooper?

Legend has it that the "H" on the Canadiens logo stands for "Habs" instead of "Hockey" as in Club de Hockey Canadien. In 1924, Madison Square Garden owner Tex Rickard was falsely told by someone that the "H" stood for "habitant", a French word that in those days was used to denote the farmers of Quebec.

Rickard was told that the French players on the team came from the farms and that they were therefore "habitants" or "Habs". At the time, the Canadiens were considered Montreal's "French" team, as opposed to the primairly "English" Montreal Maroons.

Thank you. I learned something today.

And habs, I have to concur that the Canucks "V" jerseys were profoundly bad. In fact I think they were the worst uniforms in any major professional sport.

What a jersey so much character the Vancouver V.

I hope one day when the Canucks go back to the old school stick logo they wear the '82 V and '94 skate jersey a few times a year.

The Canucks may need more Canadian blood. Dave Nonis you should have got Scott Niedermayer for the Canucks. He's amazing.

Orange and Yellow so pajama. So Tough. Blood looks good on it.

The 90's LA Kings jersey with Gretzky looked really sharp jersey.

I'm surprized they don't go back to that..

And Gary Bettman smarten up and make the white jersey's home again. Like Linden wants!!

You've sold enough of the dark jersey for the owners.

The crowd looks so cool white.Why would you want the crowd to be dark?

Sure Calgary with their home red jersey they would be mad with the change but (good) hahah!! Cheapo Otto kicked it in in '89.

Oi!! The V kicks ass. If anyone has anything to say about it, then I'll simply have to sit here and disagree. :D

Want an ugly jersey, the Canucks current Whalers jersey is shameful. Bloody Orca Bay...

And Good call Jeff94rules1. Nice passes on the video! :D

94!
