Should they keep the old one? Is it out of date or does it represent the proud history of the league?
Should they have a marketing company create a new one? Would it bring the league into the 21st century or make a mockery of all we hold sacred?
Personally, I'm afraid the Bettman the ass-clown will approve something that will appeal to 10 year old girls in Florida. From there, it will change every 3 years until in 2018 when the new commisionner (Brian Burke) changes it back the existing one.
Also, please feel free to post your own ideas on the board.

Over 40 years of pain - I just want one day of glory.
I don't mind the old one and see nothing wrong with it, but at the same time I really couldn't care less if they changed it.
I'm sure it'll be really slick, probably have teal in the colour scheme (is teal still cool?), and maybe a league wide mascot in the logo as well. Maybe they will make it blurry to try to convey to America that hockey is really fast and exciting. Etc.
I agree... the league shouldn't mess with the logo. It's not pretty, but it doesn't have to be.. people just have to identify it with the league (which people already do). Bettman et al probably just want something flashier (i.e. the NFL logo). But I don't think they should leave it alone and just concentrate on solving the current issues with the NHLPA.

I like the old logo personally ... but maybe thats the problem they are trying to address ... maybe they think people identify the old logowith a league that is unsuccessful in comparison with other major sports ... maybe they want to turn things around with a new marketing program ... ya know ... new image, new CBA deal, new tv contracts .... Success ....
How about a few rule tweaks that open up the game - or better yet: CALL THE FRICKIN' OBSTRUCTION!!!
Yup .... but we have beaten that to death in previous discussions ....the NHL doesn't get it ... easier to take lines out, move them around or paint them bigger than actually retrain the referees to "make the call" consistently I guess eh?
