Not to rub it in, but once again, if all is going to plan, I should be docked in Jamaica right about now. Anyway. I don't keep a tally of what teams get the most love from our concept artists. But if I did, I'd wager the Ducks must be right at or near the top of such a list. I guess there's just something about the Ducks brand that makes everyone want to rebrand them. So today I present some of the many attempts at fixing the look of Anaheim hockey.
Has there been another NHL team since the '90s expansion with such an automatically identifiable color scheme? When you see that combination of eggplant and jade, you instantly know what it represents. The next closest thing might be the black, silver and blue of the Lightning — and even that's going away now. But I digress. Another set of concepts will auto-publish on Friday morning if I've set up everything properly.
