Last Day for COTW Votes

Here are the votes ongoing...

COTW Dec 12-18 (ends TONIGHT {Thursday} @ 11:59pm EST)
Battle of the Legends competition (ends Sunday @ 11:59pm EST)

Committee Members, the COTW vote is VERY close. If you have yet to vote, make sure you get your vote in before the deadline.


St. Louis Blues concept (by Dan C.)Dan wants the Blues to go even further with their use of the Gateway Arch. He splashes it across the front of his concept. The arms stripes seem as though they are supposed to be music bars, but they aren't evenly spaced out. I like the outlining of the yokes that Dan has done. Finally, the shoulder patches are a little pixelated and there are no TV numbers. With a few adjustments this could be a great concept.

Chicago Blackhawks concept (by Bryan S.)Bryan uses a vintage Hawks logo on a re-coloured Bruins jersey. Just so everyone knows, the Bruins use a much bigger shoulder yoke than any other team. Pretty decent concept, the only execution notes would be the different shade of black on the front right cuff and the captain's C is way too small.

Buffalo Sabres concepts (by Chris Z.)Chris Edge-ifies the old Sabres jerseys. However, he did not add shoulder patches or TV numbers.

New Jersey Devils concept (by Jeremy)This is Jeremy's Devils "Black Ice" jerseys. You know those terrible fan's black jerseys the NHL came out with this season? The funny thing is one of the only teams that would look good in the "Black Ice" style (concept above) does not have a jersey in the series!

Atlanta Thrashers concept (by Kyle C.)Wow, I didn't think I'd see another Thrashers concept for a while! Kyle puts forth this quality effort, which is a great design. My only opinion is that it could use more white. Perhaps the numbers could have been white with a double outline?

Edmonton Oilers concept (by Brian B.)This concept just shows how Edmonton missed the boat coming into the Edge era...and they know it. This concept looks fantastic and would be really welcomed by me as a 3rd jersey. COTW nomination from me!

Medicine Hat Tigers concepts (by Kevin) Description included on the concepts.
All Star Game concepts (by Dave C.)Unfortunately, we will see the same jerseys at this year's game as we saw last year. They aren't bad jerseys, but it's always fun to see what they come up with each year. Dave has come up with a cool and simple design based on the new Sens' 3rd jersey. He also places the conference patches on the front of the sweaters (I guess he's elimination the All-Star Fantasy Draft?). The event patch is on the shoulders and I like the idea of the player's team patch on the pants, but enlarged. Nice work.

Dave is actually smart. he doesn't want the fanasty draft gone,he wants people to recognize which conference players are from. because the concept is so well layed out hes getting a cotw from me.

Dude, I saw the black ice Devils jersey, and in fact, you can get one of any team I think.

@BlueWhite: That's a fake jersey

cody said...

@Blue and White yep that is fake! even though it is a good looking jersey, it is definitely fake. also a hurricanes one would be cool.

Jeff Beckett said...
