THN.com Logo Tournament: The Finale

The Hockey News

First there were hundreds, now there are two. And, they’re in the same province.

The Montreal Canadiens and Rimouski Oceanic took very different roads in getting to the final, but a boost of grassroots support for both Quebec teams have them vying for the enviable title of THN.com’s Logo Champion.

Right from the start, Les Habitants looked to be strong contenders; they have the tradition, the colors and the large fan base, plus an iconic logo to boot. In beating Boston College, North Dakota and Detroit, the Canadiens knocked off two No. 1s and a No. 2 from our original THN rankings.

Rimouski, though no underdog, beat several game challengers en route to its spot in the finale. The Oceanic, No. 1 in the Quebec League and the only team from that circuit to make the bracket of 16, rode their fans’ support to a stunning upset of the Chicago Blackhawks in the quarterfinal, not to mention tough victories over the ECHL’s Gwinnett Gladiators and Ontario Reign.

So it comes down to this, Montreal versus Rimouski.

The voting starts now. Vive le Quebec; vive les logos.

*Voting ends 9 a.m. EST on Oct. 6.
