Zurich Blizzard concepts (by Chuckie)Chuckie has used the Alexandria Blizzard's logo (NAHL) to create this fantasy team. He's used the Utica Blizzard's (UHL) logo for the alternate jersey. He's excluded TV numbers, but he has provided a reason. He thinks that TV numbers don't do much, that's why they are only on the alternate. I would have to disagree, that is why you see them on every pro and minor hockey jersey. This is an execution note, but if they play in the Swiss league why is the NHL shield on the home and road sweaters? Details, people like to see the details!
Philadelphia Flyers concept (by John T.)Black version of their current sweater. No TV numbers. There is a mystery black line under the namebar.
New York Islanders concept (by Brian B.)This is a weak effort from Brian. We've seen a lot better from you man! No TV numbers and it's a simple wordmark placed on a re-coloured 3rd jersey. If properly executed, this could be a decent idea.
Sherbrooke Phoenix concepts (by WinnipegJets96)Jets96 adds a little more colour to the logo on the top concept it places it on the very popular Bruins template. The jersey looks great as almost any team would with that striping. I find the bottom concept to be pretty unimaginative as it is just a re-colour of a Shawinigan Cataractes 2009 sweater. An execution note, there are loose pixels down near the corners of the front hem.
Chicago Blackhawks concept (by Josh)It looks like Josh melted a hawks jersey onto a Bolts' 3rd jersey. I think the victory stripes are something that the Lightning have all to themselves and no one else should touch them. Also, the red inside the 9 is a different shade then what appears on the jersey. The copyright tag has also been left on the Hawks logo which doesn't look very clean.
New Jersey Devils concepts (by Thomas)Thomas takes the Kings' new road sweater and applies the old Devils colours to it and I think it looks really good! The alternate jersey isn't my favourite, but the home and road make up for that. I like that the home is all green (pants, socks, sweater). COTW nomination from me.
Sorry, not the best batch of concepts today, but that's how the rotation systems works sometimes. If you don't like these then get your concepts in so you can show everyone how good your are!
