The DHL Divisional vote tied at 2. That's right, all 6 entries got 2 votes each! That means we extend the DHL Divisional vote and it will now end on Saturday @ 12:00pm EST (that's noon). If you have yet to vote for your favourite DHL divisional concept, please do so before the deadline.
No more entries came in during the last 24 hours for the Battle of the Legends competition. Hopefully you're all getting your logos and concepts together to drop on me during the weekend!
New York Rangers concept (by WinnipegJets96)Jets96 continues with his throwback jerseys for the Original 6 era. Here we get the Rangers' 1946 jersey with some changes. The colours of the numbers have been switched and Jets96 adds a two coloured collar. He's also removed the stripes from the pants and used a red helmet instead of blue (not that they wore helmets back in 1946).
Boston Bruins concept (by WinnipegJets96)This is the 1939-48 sweater...Edge'd of course. This could use a little more character by adding the triple striped socks the B's wore at the time. I know it's accurate to have the B logo on the arm, but just for aesthetics I would have it as a shoulder patch.
Winnipeg Jets concept (by Spirit104)Eventhough there are a lot of stripes used here I still sort of like it. I find that the one drawback, for me anyways, is that the jersey is red. I always think of the Jets in blue sweaters, not red. Most people seem to hate on the wordmark, but I really like it. I think it does well as a primary crest on a jersey.
Kootenay Ice concepts (by Kevin) Descriptions on the concepts.
Worcester Sharks concepts (by Alan)These are really cool jerseys. Even if the Jacksonville Sharks' (Arena Football) logo wasn't used, these would be good AHL sweaters! Obviously Alan doesn't care for Reebok too much, as he's replaced all of their logos with his own, haha!
New York Islanders concept (by Ross)Coming of his very successful "Rockalanche" concept, Ross brings back the fishsticks! The logo looks really good, but I don't like the use of the two Islander blue's in it. I also feel that those 4 Stanley Cup stripes could be a little more subtle. Those are just my opinions though.
Dallas Stars concepts (by Avi)Avi uses the old Iowa Stars' jerseys of the AHL to create these awesome looking home and roads! This style has worked before here on HJC as I won COTW way back in March with a similar design. The white road looks amazing as well! The green alternate is really great also, except I think that the shade of gold used on the home and roads should also be used on the 3rds. I know Avi used this different shade of gold because he wanted the alternate to be used as "something different" for the team.
Dallas Stars concepts (by Scott)We finish one of the best HJC posts ever, in terms of quality, with Scott's Dallas Stars concepts. They kind of work off of the mid-90's sweaters, but they also have their own identity. The green pants with the vintage striping looks fantastic. That pants striping gets my attention everytime. My only note would be that if you're going to have black gloves maybe a small amount of black should be elsewhere as well. Perhaps the helmet? COTW nomination from me!
