Flyers change center-ice logo back to traditional style
Heading into the 2019-2020 season, the Flyers organization decided to remove the double logo at center ice (something late Flyers owner Ed Snider loved) and have one logo at center ice with a nice big red line going down the middle of it.
Graphic is from @thefaceoffnet on X.
Per Meltzer on Twitter, Ed thought the double logo looked distinctive and symmetrical, and I’d have to agree. The double logo on both sides of the red line brings a certain appeal that the solo logo just doesn’t. And it’s not even the logo itself that’s the problem, it’s that line being anywhere near the logo.
Some of you may have liked the solo logo, and for that I’m sorry, but it seems as if the Flyers are sprinkling in a dose of tradition and I guess this is part of that.
Rookie camp kicks off tomorrow with the first game set on Friday in Allentown. Here are the rosters.
You have to like what you see from Keith Jones and the top of the organization so far when it comes to trying to get back to tradition without it seeming like you’re beating a dead horse about the past.
Changing the center ice logo is a subtle, but nice gesture to Ed Snider, plus the fans (most of them) liked the double-sided logo to start with anyway. Appealing to a high percentage of the fanbase with something easy like this is a no-brainer in my opinion.
