Polls close Sunday, April 18 at 11:59 PM
All 30 logos are paired up randomly with another logo from the opposite conference. This is the final week of preliminary voting. Playoffs start next Monday.
Mini-Tournament In order to keep lots of polls open at all times, I'm launching mini-tournaments which will coincide with the playoff rounds of our major logo tournaments. The mini-tournaments will work much like the regular ones except that they will be shorter and feature a smaller niche logo set.
Our first mini-tournament will be Third Jersey Crests, that being the logos or designs featured on the front of a third jersey. Only current third jerseys are eligible, giving us 22 different logos. Check back later in the week for a complete list of the logos to be included and their random groupings. The first week of voting will begin April 19.

Commenting Feel free to add your comments about the polls below. Keep it short, relevant and friendly. Currently, commenting is unmoderated. Abuse it and commenting will go away. I'd prefer to offer an open discussion but not at the expense of civility. Also, if you choose to announce the logos you've voted for, do it in paragraph form. Comments with long lists will be removed.
Mini-Tourmament: Third Jersey Crests
As promised, it's time to reveal the logos to be used in the upcoming mini-tournament. The subject is third jersey crests. Eligible logos are those featured on the front of any 2009-10 NHL third jersey. There are 22. They have been randomly divided into two groups.
Notes Just like the NHLToL, logos will only face opponents within their own groups in the preliminary rounds. ... The groups have been divided unevenly so as to provide each with even number of logos. This means every logo will be included in a poll each week. ... There will be three weeks of preliminary voting. ... Larger graphics will be available when voting begins on Monday.
