This is a fan-made logo (bolded so no one will think this is the real one, lol), but I think it's pretty good and would be happy if something like this ended up as the final logo.
I actually like it. I do think the team is going to go for a much tougher look, which seems to be popular now. Back in the late 80's when they launched the Hornets, the logos had more of a fun and cute look to them. Lately, the logos are going more for power and boldness.
