Thursday's Concepts

The HJC Fantasy League is set! Team owners will be getting an email after this post goes up. The live draft will be taking place this Saturday. I will be providing HJC readers with small updates from the league here on the blog as the season progresses. Take a look below at the team names;

HJC (Ryan)
Sens Suck (Christine)
Applewood Coyotes (Kris)
Youngstown Hockey (Tex)
Buffalo Paranormal (Kyle S.)
Spirit's Champs (Spirit104)
L.A. Hitmen (Jim)
Scarborough Skulls (Cody)
WooWooWoo (Mike C.)
Say Your Sourey (Michael N.)

For those owners that can't be there for the draft (Saturday, 8:30pm EST), I suggest that you set your pre-draft rankings. For all owners, you should look over the league scoring system so you know what you're getting into.

Today is the last day for Committee members to vote for COTW. If you haven't yet, be sure to do so before 11:59pm EST tonight.

The new "Top 3" voting style for the Ice Caps competition is going really well. That voting ends on Sunday @ 11:59pm EST.

Over on the Facebook page (scroll down a bit), there has been a discussion as to what the next ReDesign will be. The leading idea right now is to do a European league (KHL probably). Head on over there to get in your two cents.

This isn't a stadium blog, but I was so impressed I felt the need to write something about it. BC Place in Vancouver, where you might have watched the 2010 Olympic opening and closing ceremonies emanate from, has nearly completed its renovations. The renovations cost just over $500 million dollars and it shows!They did a really great job updating an old stadium and really making it look state-of-the-art. It looks like an entirely new venue! It reminds me of a Canadian version of the new Cowboys Stadium. After a few events, its first big attraction will be this season's Grey Cup game.


QUICK HITS

Buffalo Sabres concepts (by Stephen)
Dallas Stars concept (by WinnipegJets96)
Winnipeg Jets concept (by Bob)



Toronto St. Pats concept (by Pete)Pete wants at least one of the old Toronto teams to come back. This is a concept for one of those teams. The logo is good, pretty straight forward. The font for the NOB may be a little too stylized and tough to see on TV and from the press box. This needs TV numbers, shoulder patches, etc...

Seattle Swords concepts (by Cody)Cody takes Buffalo's former shoulder patch and gives it to a new Seattle team called the Swords. I like the colours, but I wish there was just as much teal on the home jersey that there is on the road white sweater. Also the TV numbers read the wrong way. The front of the jersey indicates that Smith would be #22, while the back indicates that he'd be #11. Think about how a jersey would look folded in half or you could look at how others here on HJC do their TV numbers.

Calgary Flames concepts (by Kris)Kris simplifies the Flames' jerseys which some anti Reebok Edge people will like. The jerseys are good except the armpit which cuts off the stripes. That really seems to distract my eyes.

Atlant Moscow oblast concept (by Jose)These are quite similar to the team's actual road jersey. Jose has made the stripes all the same size, he's switched the manufacturer from Reebok to Bauer, and he's used an alternate wordmark for the crest.

HJC logo concept (by Jari)Jari took a stab at changing up the HJC logo and I really like it! If HJC had an alternate jersey I feel like this could be the logo on it! I like it so much I'm going to give Jari a COTW nomination.

I've got a few Winter Classic concepts in my inbox. So, tomorrow's post will feature them. If you want to get on tomorrow's post put together a quality concept and send it in. Rushed concepts will probably not get posted...
