Habs to move their AHL affiliate to Laval

The team name is now official and should come as little surprise, the Laval Rocket.

Here's the logo and uniforms for the team:

Ticket pricing seems pretty reasonable though:

first glance, I really don't love using the #9 on the sleeves.  I get trying to build the connection to Richard but the two different numbers of one jersey is a bit tough on the eyes.  Good colour balance though.

I'd like to see the #9 a bit smaller if they're going to keep it on the sleeves.  At least that way, the actual sweater number stands out a bit more.

I like the colors and the uniforms.


I hate the logo though.  IMO, it is pretty ugly.

New jerseys, what do you think? I think they're pretty slick myself.

I like the uniform design, but that logo sucks.

Just a quick note that I merged Meller's thread with the existing Laval one.

Should have gave a look in here before I posted it

 

unlike some I actually like the logo too, it has a retro feel to it but I think they pull it off. There is a lot of history there to be fair

Awful logo. Pretty pathetic. All the money and resources they have.. This is sad.

 

Fail.

I don't hate the logo, but it's certainly meh-ish.

I think the new uniforms and logo are awesome. Sort of a vintage look. I agree that the #9 on the sleeves are a bit distracting from the player number though

Sorry for my lack of historic culture, but care to explain how this logo relates to History ?

Simply the retro look. Besides obvious reference to the rocket himself they aren't referenceing much, but all I mean is it doesn't come across as some ripoff retro look to me because of the culture of hockey that has been around Laval for over 100 years.

Is it a T below the 9? Laval Titan?

 

and tho it won't ever be a favorite logo, I like it. It seems classic like our CH and away from the cartoony bulldog and the like.
