Today is the last day for Committee members to email in their COTW vote. Voting ends at 11:59pm EST.
The voting system is going to change for our ReDesigns! Here's good news, you will now be able to vote for your own concepts, if you choose to! You will now also be required to submit a top 3 (including voting for your own concept if you choose)! The winner would then be determined by total points. So, 1st place votes would get 3 points, 2nd place would get 2 points and 3rd place would get 1. I will update the VOTING COMMITTEE page later. I will also go over the new voting method on Monday, when voting begins for the Ice Caps ReDesign. What does everyone think?
Speaking of the Ice Caps, they revealed their jerseys today.As I predicted, they released them right in the middle of our competition. It's okay, the competition carries on anyways. The jerseys are the same as the Jets' jerseys, except in the AHL the home team wears white. I'm glad no one actually submitted these jerseys for the contest.
Here are some entries that have come in for the Ice Caps ReDesign...
St. John's Ice Caps concepts (by Brian B.)

There won't be a post tomorrow because I will be attending the Leafs' pre-season game against the Sabres. On the bright side, it looks like the Leafs have thrown together a 4pm EST press conference to "reveal" their new 3rd jersey. I will be in attendance and will try to Tweet some photos. Hopefully I can get my hands on a freebie (no money to get the jersey yet). If there is a post it will be very late at night, but that's an IF.
Andalucia concept (by Martin)
Tampa Bay Lightning concepts (by Evan L.)
Carolina Hurricanes concept (by Spirit104)For the most part I like this as a 3rd jersey for the 'Canes. If it were to be perfect, in my books, I would get rid of the shoulder yoke outline. I'd also use the black and grey shoulder patch and remove the collar laces. Finally, I'd have the sock design match the sweater design. Overall, I still like this though.
Winnipeg Jets concepts (by Cody)Cody has used Kyle S.' Jets concept logo on his concept jerseys. As you can see, the jerseys are made from the 2011 All-Star Game jerseys. That template has been quite popular lately with HJC concept artists.
Winnipeg Jets concept (by Kyle M.)If the Jets ever felt like they needed to promote the red in their colour scheme this concept shows that it could actually look pretty good. When I see this concept, it makes me think I'd prefer this as a 3rd jersey to a retro look. TV numbers, shoulder patches, yada yada yada...
Vancouver Canucks concept (by Felix)This is a 3rd jersey follow up to a Canucks concept of Felix's that was posted on Monday. I don't mind the big V and I like Johnny skating through it too. I think the script in the hem stripe looks a little goofy.
Tampa Bay Lightning concept (by Spirit104)This is a really great possible 3rd jersey for the Lightning next season. I wonder if the Lightning will introduce a 3rd jersey next season? Anyways, the only detail I'd change it to have the team name in blue instead of black inside the main crest. Either way, great job!
Florida Panthers concepts (by Kris)I REALLY like the home and road jerseys! They look a little similar to the Panthers' original jerseys, but they're different enough to be looked at as new. I'd personally prefer if the Panthers wore these! The 3rd jersey I'm not a fan of because it's pretty much the Moncton Wildcats' jersey.

2012 Winter Classic logo!!!
Just like I reported last Friday, the NHL will hold a press conference at Citizens Bank Park on Monday. It is there that the above logo will be unveiled as will the Rangers and Flyers jerseys.
Glen posted a much better look of the logo on the Facebook page.
Also, here is what I see on the Rangers logo (it needs work).Original 1920's shape with current 3rd jersey colours and the current font used on the Rangers' current logo.
