I'll try to keep this explanation short. I'm going to do the three CHL leagues, AHL, and NHL. Winners of those leagues will face off at the end to decide who has the best of the best. I think we all have some sort of idea already who will be at the end, but I'm curious to see how some logos face off against each other.
We start today with the first round of the OHL. The seeding is randomized. When I get to the final rounds there will be an odd number of matchups. To settle this I will reward a round bye to teams with the highest total votes throughout the tournament. In the comments just write down the team who you think has the better logo. It can be because of pure looks, you're a fan of them, or it's a memorable look to you. I don't care what your reason is, let us know!
OHL Logo Tournament Round 1:
1A.) Barrie Colts 1B.) Sudbury Wolves
2A.) Erie Otters 2B.) Mississauga Steelheads
3A.) Flint Firebirds 3B.) Oshawa Generals
4A.) Guelph Storm 4B.) Ottawa 67's
5A.) Hamilton Bulldogs 5B.) Saginaw Spirit
6A.) Kingston Frontenacs 6B.) Niagara Ice Dogs
7A.) Kitchener Rangers 7B.) North Bay Battalion
8A.) Peterborough Petes 8B.) Owen Sound Attack
9A.) Sarnia Sting 9B.) SOO Greyhounds
10A.) London Knights 10B.) Windsor Spitfires
Next week since it won't be a last minute idea I will have the tournament board ready so it's easier to follow along. I think it's obvious to say but you need to vote for every matchup. Votes won't count if you just do one match. Not saying that someone would, but just incase. Make sure to head to the comments section after you check out the rest of the post to vote!
COTW Sept 27-Oct 3 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Golden Blades ReDesign Top 5 vote (ends Friday @ 9:59pm Eastern)
Now onto the normal day of concepts!
Chicago Bulls Concept - Jan S.
Chicago Blackhawks Concept - John E.
Nashville Predators Concept - Ryan C.
Carolina Hurricanes Concept - Taylor R.
This looks similar to a concept I did for the 'Canes awhile back. Glad that Taylor has good taste in design. He keeps it classy and simple but still adding in the Hurricanes vibe on the striping. I was kind of skeptical of the grayscale numbers on the away jersey but under further review the call on the play is overturned, I agree with the color decisions. The whole design for what it's worth is very nice. I would like to see the 'Canes in a more modern style but this is still nice.
VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE, FOR BOTH COTW AND THE COMPETITION AND THE LOGOS TOURNAMENT!
