A Whale of an idea

Sorry that I'm late with this one, but I did think it was worthy of mention here.

Anyone who has read this blog since its inception probably knows that I believe the greatest logo in the history of hockey -- maybe the history of sports -- belonged to the Hartford Whalers.

Click here to see it.

And it may be coming back, in the form of the Connecticut Whale. Read this.

There doesn't seem to be an official announcement yet from the American Hockey League team in Hartford -- see this -- but here's hoping they do go with the original Whalers logo.

Now if we can just get the most politically incorrect logo in hockey history back -- this one -- or better yet this one, then we'll really have something to talk about.
