By no less an authority than Icethetics, here's their review: "The Ottawa Senators had a perfectly good logo when they debuted in 1992. Then they came up with their first third jersey in 1997. And it had this multi-colored mark on the front. And we all asked, "why?" Turning the guy's head to make the logo more three-dimensional takes the logo to a weird place. And it just looks bad. The Sens thought they fixed the problem in 2007 by adding bolder lines and sharper corners. But they didn't. Long live the 2D head." Never good to be keeping the company of the Islanders "Highliner" and the "Buffaslug". When Icethetics polled their readers in early 2011 to rank the uniforms of the Canadian teams, the Senators entries garnered the lowest combined score -- averaging 3.4/10. With the infamous "SNES" sweater coming dead last scoring a paltry 2.2/10 (I'd argue that's a generous score). This blog applauded Jacob Barette's efforts, and eventual collaboration with the Senators on the superb Heritage Sweater. But it doesn't go far enough. I think Nichols said it best last year, when remarking on the Blue Jays new uniforms embracing their past: "I really hope that the Senators were paying attention, based off of the overwhelming success of the ‘heritage’ jersey and the amount of buzz that’s generated when teams like Oilers, Sabres, Capitals, Islanders, Flames and Devils (well, maybe there aren’t enough Devils fans to generate a buzz) don their original uniforms, it seems like a no-brainer for the Senators to return and stick to something that resembles the jerseys that they wore during their inaugural season." #bringbackthe2d
