COTW Jan 23-29 vote (ends Thursday @ 11:59pm EST)

Also announced this past weekend was the All Star Game Jerseys Competition. Check out the ASG COMP tab for all of those details. Entry deadline is Thursday @ 11:59pm EST. This contest is a buffer to get us through to next week where we will be doing a "Create-A-Team" comp, but hold off until those details are announced. Here are some entries that have come in for the All Star Game Comp.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anaheim Ducks concept (by Dave C.)
Dave has Edge-ified the Wild Wing sweater. Execution would have been perfect, but Dave has used the wrong stitching on his jersey.

Los Angeles Kings concepts (by Chris Z.)
I know Chris is trying to combine eras, but I don't think the gold works when used with the black and silver. I think the home and road concepts would look good if the logo did not have the gold trim. Also, where have the Reebok logos on the back gone?

Dallas Stars concepts (by B&I Design)
We get North Stars inspired sweaters for the Dallas Stars concepts. I like the D logo with the 6 stars (6 players on the ice), but I think it might be better suited as a secondary logo. In fact, I think it would be great as a shoulder patch or helmet or pants logo. I'm going to stop mentioning the vertical stitching ending at the hem stripes. Am I the only one who cares about that?

Dallas Stars concept (by Mason H.)
Another North Stars inspired concept. I like the stars in the arm stripes, but I think the primary logo looks a little small on this jersey. I'd also leave the coloured namebar to the Flyers. In my opinion, it's their thing so let them have it.

Hartford Whalers concept (by Tex)
This is a vintage inspired concept Tex says. One indicator is the over sized TV numbers. If this truly were "vintage inspired" I would make the blue and grey stripes thicker. I'd also not try to draw attention to the Reebok collar insert by colouring it a different colour than the jersey itself. I like the direction of this, but a few tweaks could make it better.

Brampton Battalion concepts (by Kevin) Description on concepts.

Pittsburgh Penguins concept (by Brandon C.)
The concept is nearly perfectly executed, except for the small traces of red left on the player model's neck. I'm not against the vegas gold or a vegas gold sweater, but this one just doesn't seem to work for me. It's not a bad concept, but I can't seem to find anything that I really like about it.

Pittsburgh Penguins concepts (by Brendan A.)
Brendan really tried to combine eras here. Obviously it's the sweaters of the 80's, but what appears to be black is actually "Midnight Blue" and what appears to be white is actually "Ice Blue". I like the creativity with the colours and I think it would be a great idea for a 3rd jersey.

Quebec Nordiques concepts (by Matt M.)
If the Nordiques came back, these would be good jerseys. I like how Matt has used the white version of the igloo logo on the blue jersey. I also think the number font is a perfect choice! It's simple striping, but for some reason I really think the cuffs add some life to this jersey. I REALLY like this, so COTW nom from me!

@Ryan, perhaps a tutorial on stiching...?

Ryan said...

Good idea. I'll put it on the list. It might show up on a weekend post in a couple of weeks.

LOL! I'm surprised you didn't comment on the absence of the Reebok logo until now! You know I hate the shoulder patches but to be honest I hate the Reebok graffiti on the back even more! I think the logo of the company that made the jersey should be down in the bottom right corner away from everything the way CCM used to do it, not plastered top center just to draw attention to itself! It's distracting and sometimes can interfere with the design of the jersey. I think that a jersey should be all about the colors, logo and numbers. Not the company that made it. (What can I say, I'm a traditionalist in the strictest sense of the word!) BTW I thought about leaving the yellow for just the 3rd jerseys but I actually didn't think it was as noticeable on the regualrs.

I would give Kevin's Concept a COTW, but that has already been done. REALLY like the alternate. But maybe full body camo would look better?
