Week of May 16-22, 2011

I received three last minute entries into the Barons ReDesign competition.

Now that the entry phase is over, it's time to vote. You can see all of the entries and vote on the BARONS COMP page! Voting runs until Sunday @ 11:59pm EST. The winner goes straight into next week's COTW voting.

This week's COTW vote is on the left side of the page. Nominees can be see on the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK page. Voting runs until Thursday @ 11:59pm EST.

Last week's weekly poll asked which arena that you have not been to, would you most like to go to. Answers were spread across the league but, there were 3 arenas above the rest. With 13% of the votes was Montreal's Bell Centre.With 12% of the votes (including mine) was Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center.Finally, with 11% of the votes was Toronto's Air Canada Centre.The full results can be seen below.

This week's poll lacks a little imagination but, is asking what the next defunct team is that we should ReDesign? Voting is on the right side of the page and will run until Sunday @ 11:59pm EST.

As you can tell, I'm running low on Weekly Poll ideas. If you have any, feel free to send them in!

Columbus Blue Jackets concept (by Avi)This is pretty cool. I like the stripes on the arms, an obvious nod to the state flag. I'm not crazy about the piping down the front but, it doesn't take away from the jersey. All in all a nice job here.

Team USA concept (by Eric)Eric created a grey Team USA concept. I do like the idea and I like the attempt at creating a new logo. I don't like the gradient on the logo though. Simplifying the colours on the USA would be best, in my opinion.

Colorado Avalanche concept (by Spirit104)I get at least one concept a month from people who want to see the Avs in a retro Nordiques jersey. This one looks cool but, i think the thickness of the white stripe on the hem needs to match the stripe on the arm.

St Louis Blues concept (by Brandon)On the topic of vintage jerseys, Brandon has created this Blues sweater based on the old AHL's St. Louis Flyers. You got to give Brandon credit here for doing a fantastic job re-creating all of those stripes.

EDIT
By accident, my email filtered out this entry. It comes from Kevin.

EDIT #2
I just have figured out that my email has been blocking Yahoo senders for the last year. If this was you, I am VERY sorry. The problem has been fixed and your concepts will be posted. I do post every concept I get sent...eventually.

Consol Energy center is an awesome place to watch a game, best arena i've been to.

From the way commentators have talked/written about it, it sounds like the best new arena in the league.
