Stéphane - 3
Ryan - 2
Mason H. - 0
Shane P. - 0

The winner of COTW Feb 27 - Mar 4 is Avi with his retro Sharks concept set! The results of that vote can be seen below.
Avi - 2
Alan - 1
D3troit1388 - 1
Martin - 1
Thomas - 1
GKennedy - 0

Stéphane's winning concept can be seen on the COTY 2012 page. Avi's winning concept can be seen on the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK page.

The "voter turn-out" was VERY disappointing again. There are 40 names on the HJC Voting Committee list and only 5 people voted for Concept of the Week (February) and only 6 voted for COTW Feb 27 - Mar 4. Has HJC become stale? Have people found something else these past few weeks?

Still taking input on which competition to start next week. "Untouchables" ReDesign or WHA ReDesign? Both contests are getting pretty even support. Let your voice tilt it one way or the other!

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

Nashville Predators concept (by Spirit104)
I think I would personally prefer a logo as the primary crest and then have "MUSIC CITY" in the same font that is used for that Nashville script. I also think the numbers need some more character. The city of Nashville seems too lively for standard block font.

Winter Classic concepts (by Kris L.)
I like the Detroit concept, but the logo seems a little pixelated and the D shoulder patches appear too close to the collar. The Leafs concept is also good, but again the shoulder patches seem too close. Also, maybe it would be better if the sock stripes matched the hem stripe on this occasion?

Detroit Red Wings concept (by Tyler G.)
Tyler has used the old Cougars sweater, simplified the striping and changed the front to say Red Wings. Oh yeah, he's also made the jersey vintage white because it's a Winter Classic concept. Will the Wings wear something based on this jersey? They did "just wear" that retro sweater in the 91-92 season.

Toronto Maple Leafs concept (by D3troit1388)
D3troit has given a lot of his information about the concept in the bottom right corner of the image. Only thing I suggest is that the yoke stripes match the arm and hem stripes.

Toronto Maple Leafs concept (by Mason H.)
This is one of my favourite Leafs Winter Classic concepts so far. I would suggest making the outline on the numbers and captain C bolder. This is based on the 34-37 white jersey, the Leafs' first striped white jersey. COTW nom from me!

Winter Classic concepts (by Kevin)
I really like Kevin's Wings concept, except for the shield used with the captain's letters (based on the Cougars' logo). The problem with the Leafs jersey is that there is a different amount of stripes at each section of the jersey. The hem has one set of stripes, the arms have two, and the socks have 3. If that was the same all throughout I think the jersey might be better.

Tampa Bay Lightning concepts (by Hermilo)
Definitely a lot of character added to these Lightning jerseys! I actually kind of like it, for a 3rd jersey. All the elements that make hockey jerseys good are here, and then some character has been added. Really nice work.

Hermilo for COTW!

Thanks to everyone for my second title in a row.

@Ryan: your right. We - and that includes me - volunteered to be on the voting committee and I, speaking for myself, wasn't the most participating judge in the past weeks. I will correct that.

Justin said...

What do you mean by "untouchables?"

Ryan said...

Untouchables are teams that you would never consider changing. Such as DET unis. TOR colours. MTL unis. And so on.

AJH said...

I say WHA ReDesign!

Stéphane Sinotte said...

Considering the comp now in place at Puckdrawn, I'd say go with WHA for the next comp at HJC...

I have a legit excuse for my lack of, well everything lately. I don't have Internet at home for the moment and have had to do everything on my iPod, sorry, I'll start voting again. Maybe someone can volunteer to send vote reminder emails weekly, like you did with the weekly poll. Just a thought.
