As long as we're looking back at defunct NHL franchises, how about Nick Burton's take on the Cleveland Barons? I could see something like this in today's NHL.
Brandon Manzione moves Revival Week along with this take on the Cleveland Barons. As rebrands go, it's a decent one, but it suffers from the same problem as the Lightning's current uniforms. Many will compare them to the Maple Leafs. Still a neat pair of logos though.
Anyone here remember the Cleveland Barons? Ryan Haslett offers up a modern take on the old club which, today, traces its lineage to the Dallas Stars.
