It's pleasing. The type gives it character. It's nice that they haven't tried to update it to be more modern/aggressive. Clean.
It's similar to the Red Wings in concept, but nowhere near as pleasing. Still it's nice and clean. No need for any letters.
A great example of going back to what was working. Buffalo and Sabres all in one neat circle. The Gold is a nice touch.
Simple and strong. Just the right amount of detail. The B by itself would be not enough. Circles help. Notice how we haven't seen a hockey stick in the top 15.
A great example that older doesn't have to mean more classic. The old logo was a dull attempt at combining a Jet into the letters and using a hockey stick as a J. This feels modern and like it was the right choice 50 years ago as well. Nice job.
We've seen how simplicity can work in your favor, here's one that shows how complexity can be done right. There are a lot of details, but they're done in a clean, simple way to create something special.
