There it is, and it looks damn good. We've been following the 'New Maple Leafs Logo' beat for a week now, discussing early rumours and concepts as well as looking at all Leafs logos past and present (and ranking them). Now we finally get to see it.

Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs will reveal their newest logo in the fifth episode of their The Leaf: Blueprint documentary series. We already have a pretty good idea of what it's going to look like, but before we see the official logo, let's take a look at all of the blue and white (and sometimes green) Maple Leafs logos of years past. And because this is the internet, let's rank them... because that's what we do, right?
According to SportsLogos.net, the Leafs have used eight primary logos throughout their 99-year history, with what I'd call four truly unique designs and four more that were slight variations of others.

Contributing to this vote was Jeff Veillette, Jon Steitzer, Shawn Reis and myself. While it's fair to question Jeff's sense of style, I assure you these rankings are extremely correct.

Earlier today, the Leafs released a teaser video for the upcoming fifth episode of 'The Leaf: Blueprint', their in-house documentary on the rebuilding efforts under Brendan Shanahan, Lou Lamoriello and Co. In that video, we got our first glimpse of Toronto's new logo

As is tradition, Jake Gardiner's name has once again popped up in trade chatter as the deadline slowly approaches. The Toronto Sun's Steve Simmons wrote a rather innocent enough account yesterday of the Leafs' preparations for the upcoming trade deadline and stated that "just about everybody not named Morgan Rielly, Nazem Kadri, Jake Gardiner and James Reimer may be up for grabs."
The thing is, not everyone agrees.
