The road to crowning THN’s ultimate logo is nearing the proverbial Emerald City. With the Round of 16 complete, we move on to the remaining Elite Eight emblems.

It was a tough go for a couple logos that managed to squeak by and a few others are still alive that weren’t expected to make it this far.

The ECHL is being represented by two teams, but the luck of the draw was not in that league’s favor as the Florida Everblades and Ontario Reign faceoff against each other in the quarterfinal, meaning only one can reach the semis.

The Gwinnett Gladiators nearly made it a three-spot for the ECHL, but the Quebec League’s Rimouski Oceanic reeled them in over the weekend and won by a just handful of votes to become the only club remaining from the Canadian major junior leagues.

The most closely watched storyline from the Sweet 16’s early going was the San Jose Sharks-Chicago Blackhawks tilt. What was assumed would be a cakewalk for the Hawks quickly turned into a mass mobilization of Sharks fans, who accelerated their squad out to a 40 percent cushion, leaving some of us in THN’s offices wondering if we were on the verge of the greatest logo upset of all-time.

But alas, it was not to be. Hawks fans united to bring their classic crest out of its slump on the way to a blowout victory.

Will there be a Cinderella upset on the eve of the final four? Can the strong North Dakota fan base unseat the Montreal faithful? Can the classic Winged Wheel fly passed Leafs Nation?

Time and your voting will tell as we inch towards unveiling the best of the best. (Click HERE to cast your ballot.)

*Voting ends 9 a.m. EST on Sept. 22.
