Predators release redesigned team logos

So the Nashville Predators changed their logo? I could hardly tell.

The Preds recently took to designing a new look for the team, redesigning the existing logo and creating an alternate. Well a quick scan shows little in the way of a new shape, mostly just a change in the color scheme. Remember how the fans were all decked out in orange/gold for the playoff run? Yea, well that color is getting a more prominent placement.

From the team's website:

This week's launch is the conclusion of a lengthy process which included fan focus group input, input from season ticket holders, meetings with the Reebok NHL design team, designed to showcase a more contemporary and aggressive look by streamlining the original logo with tweaks like shading on the teeth and adding a distinctive gold color band through the logo.

As for the rest of the logos? Well there's nothing really earth shattering. What is new, though, is a second logo which I'll admit is a little bit creative. It's in the shape of a guitar pick -- get it? Music City? -- and has the Stars of the Tennessee state flag.

The last two parts of the rebranding will come in new uniforms, the road look to be unveiled at the draft this weekend while the home version will be released sometime later this summer.

I like the TN flag inspired stars, but not crazy about the sabertooth color pattern.

No don't sign Shea Weber, I would rather see him playing as a Red Wing!

The previous logo had so many colors in the Predator, I am sure this will make it easier to print the logo in just 1 or 2 colors and suppliers of apparel are happier too.  Pretty minor changes, gets my approval as a DAY 1 Pred's fan.

Just hurry up and sign Shea Weber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The new logos look cleaner and more sleek, maybe it will transform our Offense?!?!?

I do like the pick and the three stars from the Tennessee state flag- each represent the three distinct grand divisions of the state: East TN, Middle TN and West TN.

The logos look lighter, too. the blue in the old logos weighed them down and these just look better.
