Replacing the Wings’ Slogan

Over at Abel to Yzerman, they’ve been running a contest to replace the Red Wings’ slogan for this season.

The marketing idiots with the Red Wings came up with this clip-art beauty…

Stupid slogan? Check. Out of date team logos? Check. Could have been made by a grade-schooler? Check.

A2Y reader “Saginaw John” put together the winning entry…

Now, I’m not a fan of “catchy” slogans in general, especially not ones you change every year (not that they’ve ever gotten rid of “Hockeytown,” which was once just a gimmick), but if a fan could come up with something that good, why couldn’t the team?
