0299: Chill Logo Contest Leftovers

Over the summer, the St. Charles Chill — a new Central Hockey League team — held a fan logo design contest. The winner was announced two weeks ago but I did promise to share any entries that were sent my way. Matt McElroy and Mark Morgan sent in their work. And while neither won the contest, it's worth taking a look.

What do you think of these two options? Is either one better than the winning design?
