This is going to be one of the bigger posts ever! No better place than to start from the top, here we go...
The Flyers released their Winter Classic jersey today.This jersey will become the 3rd jersey next season. It has all of the retro inspired elements that you would expect, felt numbers and logo, vintage white, collar laces and so on. I have to say that the Flyers' website has done a terrible job as far as pictures of the jersey goes. They currently have 4 pics of Schenn and Betts wearing the jerseys and 2 pics of construction workers laying down the first level of flooring on the ball field for the game itself. As for a score out of 10, I give it a 7.5.We could revisit all of the Flyers Winter Classic concepts that have come in, or we could just again be reminded of Avi's concept that was posted on October 12. I will have the blank template tomorrow, which is also HJC's 2nd birthday!

Montreal Maroons concepts (by Stéphane)California Golden Seals concepts (by Stéphane)These would have been accepted, but they did not contain the logos provided and they have the NHL logo on them. I still think they are quite good and should be posted. For anyone who wants to, feel free to create new logos for the DHL teams. The only requirement is that the team logos provided on the DHL page are ANYWHERE on your home and road jerseys (3rd jerseys can be logo free).
Philadelphia Flyers Winter Classic concept (by Joseph)Philadelphia Flyers Winter Classic concept (by Joseph)Philadelphia Flyers Winter Classic concept (by Joseph)Now that the actual jerseys are out I thought it would be a good day to post these concepts from Joseph. I like the Liberty Bell logos and the Flyers logo in the keystone. I'm not entirely sold on the vintage white helmets though. My favourite is concept #3.
Winter Classic concepts (by Glen)That's a very solid Flyers jersey. I think that would have looked good with the old Cooperalls! The Rangers jersey also looks good, but I think it needs more blue rather than red. Perhaps switching the colours of the script on the front would help that?
