He was going off on the Whalers. He's clearly a Rangers fans.

Screw the Rangers. Would rather cheer for the Devils or Islanders.
This guy has been trolling anything Whalers since before the CT Whale came about. He lives a sad existence

Why? It looks good imo
I totally beg to differ. They need their own identity. This Whalers worship is getting really tiring. They can easily find a palette that identifies with the Victorian era better.

I have a Whalers flag from the Hockey HoF hanging on my wall. The green and blue on teams all over the state is overkill. The Whalers are not coming back for a long time. Maybe after Bettman has passed away.

Agree to disagree. I think its perfect. And what others teams besides them are blue and green in CT? Honestly can't think of any other.....

Why do we need more? It's so uncreative and unoriginal. People in college used to tell me I should have went for a sports marketing degree. I'm involved in that sorta crap anyway.

To be honest, it's ugly. Green and blue have nothing to do with goats or trains or the Victorian era "Yard Goats" projects. Maybe besides water and plants. Worked perfect on the Whalers for obvious reasons.

But you just said we don't need more teams with blue and green color scheme when they're literally the only one lol. And it does work for Yard Goats green for the grass they graze on and blue for the state of Connecticut...

It obviously was a smart choice since they sell some of the most apparel in MiLB

You do know that a "Yard Goat" has nothing to do with farming or even the animal, right? A "Yard Goat" is a small train used in the yard to push cars around. That's why the original design had the goat wearing a conductors hat, and why the wordmark uses the old Springfield-Hartford-New Haven train line script. The team is supposed to be themed around trains but they forgot that and only focused on goats and the Whalers.

At the very least I hope we can agree a Wolf head coming out of the break of a wave is ridiculous. What do submarines have to do with Hartford anyways?

What do Whalers have to do with Hartford? Should have called them the Connecticut Whalers. As far as colors? Even a velvety red/purple, silver and black would work. Your reasoning on colors was just....c'mon man. Please. Yeah, people like Whalers stuff, cool. If you want this to be all about nostalgia rather than actual creative sports marketing, power to you.

The Wolf Pack belong in New London or Groton or wherever, not Hartford.

The rightful name of the Whalers was the New England Whalers.

I think the Bruins objected to that name.

they originally wanted the team to be named the Seawolves (after the then-cutting-edge submarine (USS Seawolf (SSN-21) - Wikipedia ), but some minor league team down south (I believe) pitched a fit so they changed it to Wolfpack.

Continuing off topic of this thread, I want the UConn hockey team to wear Whalers colors once a year - some non-HE game. If they can pull off the actual jersey even better, although I'm sure the NHL and/or the NCAA would have some kind of issue.
