I'm not sure how new this news is, but I thought I'd point out that the NHL recently unveiled a new logo for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. You know you want to see it so here it is.
Not that my opinion matters but I like it a lot. Much more than what's been used in the past. For a look at what more recent logos looked like, check out 2007 and 2003.
If you want to see what the rest of the set looks like for this new design as well as past logos, SportsLogos.net seems to be a decent resource.
