Resolute 14
One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Honestly that's not a very good logo. The 40 sticking outside the shield makes the whole thing look lopsided. Also, it's kinda silly to completely de-emphasize the team logo at centre ice.

I agree with Resolute.

Also, I always think of Olli Jokinen when I see those awful 30th patches.

I am encouraged by the colors. Retro.
The 40 is centered. The far edge of the 4 and the far edge of the 0 bleed outside of the lines the exact same amount.

The lines under the 4 just fill in space where the 0 doesn't need filling in because the shape of the number. It's ok not to like the stripes, the 40 is centered.

The title is so confusing - are they releasing the new logo or dropping it?

That's not true, the far edge of the 4 extends further than the far edge of the zero. The 40 is "centred" along the inside edge of the 4 (not the space between the 4 and 0), so it's not "technically" centre, but it seems like a fine balance.

Centre it directly between the two letters and the 4 sticks out even more. Centre it based on the overall combined width of the 40, and it'll look too far to the right.

I think it looks good. It looks balanced, which is more important than centred.

I think it's fine. Not particularly clever (the Canucks' 50th has rather clever use of the stick in rink motif), but not atrociously "creative" either.

Funny but also predictable.

If you google "NHL 40th Anniversary logo" you see quite a few, the Flyers and Islanders included.

The only one with cartoon versions of their Stanley Cups ... yep Edmonton.

Looks better on the ice than just as a logo, but both the lack of symmetry with the outer edges and the extra 2 lines jumped out at me as poor design.
Nice colours and ok overall, 5/10.

This just means 40 years of terrible graphics department. Original Flaming C is still the best of the bunch. At least the 40 was an improvement over previous anniversaries.

Dropped?

Jesus Christ, I read this thread totally confused. I thought it was released then dropped from future plans.

Those are some pretty bad anniversary logos. The ability to make each one uniquely awful in its own way is impressive.

I honestly think it's impossible to get any more 90's than that incredible 15 year logo.

Why does the ‘A’ look like a completely different font?
