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

Team Switzerland concepts (by Bobby P.)
I like the red jersey, but the white jersey done in the same style is way too plain for me. Also, on the back of the red sweater the collar is white, but on the front it's red.

Pittsburgh Penguins concepts (by Torin)
Here is another 80's retro set. Torin has also added the navy blue sweater from the early 80's as the alternate. The yellow he's used is a combination of the current vegas gold and the 80's gold.

Chicago Blackhawks concept (by Tyler G.)
Tyler has switched the logos, using the tomahawks as the primary crest. I'm not sold on that move, but I do like his colour choice for the stripes!

Quebec Nordiques concept (by Bobby P.)
The stripe across the chest has become tired. However, on this concept I inexplicably like it. Perhaps it's the red trimmed hem that goes well with it? Or maybe it's the faded retro colours? The only problem is the badly pixelated logo. Too bad, because everything else is nice and clean.

Quebec Nordiques concepts (by D3troit1388)
It looks like D3troit1388 has moved the Coyotes to Quebec and Edge-ified the old WHA sweaters for them to wear. Very good execution here!

Montreal Canadiens concept (by Anthony)
The jersey seems to work for the Habs and the colours look good together, but using the maroon of the former Montreal Maroons is a no-no. That would be like the Islanders going defunct, then the Rangers wear a blue and orange jersey 50 years later. The Habs and Maroons were rivals, very similar to the way the Nordiques and Habs were rivals in the 80's.

Winnipeg Jets concepts (by Thomas H.)
I love these! First, they are perfectly executed and secondly, they do a great job of using the modern colours, but also tying into the past Jets. COTW nom from me!

One question Ryan, can you arch text eg. make a circle logo on Paint.net?

@D3troit1388: as an ex-nords fan, switch the red and blue on the white jersey and use standards yokes instead of flushed ones and I'm a definitive buyer!
