So was I, and I happened to stumble upon the news when working on putting together my NHL 12 update for later today… just had to go and confirm the info via the AHL.

I probably would have caught it yesterday, when the press release went out, but I spent most of the day sleeping, fighting off a very annoying flu bug of unknown origin… which I’m still dealing with… but I make no excuses… except for those previous ones.

I dig the name too… as I’m a big fan of those IceCaps from Tim Horton’s wink

Another thick-lined logo with the font rendered in perspective…blah.  Except the incorporation of Newfoundland and I guess Labrador into the actual ice cap part…that’s pretty cool.

Yeah, they just don’t make ‘em like they used to (original six logos are all still the best IMO).

Gotta give them some props the Newfoundland/Labrador love… even though I won’t be the only person who will think “Tim Horton’s” every time I see it.

Poor name, uninspired logo and colors.

Do people even try anymore?

It’s better than Fog Devils, which was the name of the QMJHL team we had here a few years ago. I really like the new logo, especially the map of the province. They are using the colours that the Jets are using. The logo seems popular so far, the merchandise is selling pretty briskly.
