Jets, Flyers, and More

Vote Reminders
WHA East Top 5 vote (ends Thursday @ 11:59pm EST)
WHA West Top 5 vote (ends Thursday @ 11:59pm EST)
COTW Mar 12-18 vote (ends Thursday @ 11:59pm EST)

The poll is up to choose the primary logo for the HJC jersey. Just go to the HJC JERSEY page and select your top 3 logos in the poll. You can also leave comments about the logo options. I'm interested in hearing if you guys think any of them would be better as a shoulder patch. Speaking of those shoulder patches, if you have a good idea for the HJC jersey shoulder patch then send it in. It might be included in the shoulder patch poll next week. I originally thought that this week's poll should run until Sunday, but I think I'm going to cut it off on Friday.

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

Florida Panthers concept (by Caleb)
There are several execution errors here. There are loose pixels at the tip of the collar, check out the TUTORIALS link on the side of the page to fix that. The numbers on the back have clearly been taken from somewhere else as red pixels have been left behind when the red was removed. The shoulder patches are also blurry. This jersey has some potential after those things are cleared up.

Minnesota Wild logo concept (by Ray)
I can appreciate the effort in hand drawing this logo. I just think it might have turned out better if actual fonts were used. The idea is good, just needs some refining. It also might help to check out ColorWerx's official NHL colours page.

Anaheim Ducks concepts (by Kyle C.)
I really like both of these! Simple and well executed. They really give the Ducks a cool, classic and unique identity. The orange jersey is bright, but not garish. It would get some attention in the league, but in a good way. COTW nomination from me!

Winnipeg Jets concept (by Jeremy T.)
We've seen the Canadian Air Force inspired Jets jersey before from other people and this is Kyle's take on it. I think the blue-white-blue stripe at the top of the chest is too low. While it looks like Kyle has used the official Jets colours, they seem too dark to me. Making the light blue even lighter may help.

Winnipeg Jets concept (by Brian R.)
Brian has modified the '09 All-Star Game uni's to fit with the Jets look. I think it's pretty cool, but I'm not a fan of the Jets in red. I may be in the minority in that regard. Saving as a PNG instead of a JPG or GIF will help with all of that pixelization.

Winnipeg Jets concept (by D3troit1388)
As D3troit has noted, this is based on the 1972 WHA Jets jersey. While the wordmark worked on that jersey I don't think this one is strong enough to be a primary crest. Other than that, great re-creation and really solid execution!

Augsburger Panthers Deutsche Eishockey Liga concept (by Jose)
It appears to me that this German club team has FIVE jerseys from which to choose from! None of them look like this one, but sublimated panther is a very cool idea! That same idea appears to be on a couple of this team's sweater, but it's hard to tell with all of the ads! Really nice work here though by Jose.

Philadelphia Flyers concept (by Mazzz)
Yes, this one is a little out there, but I do think it's a great idea for a Flyers 3rd jersey. Flyers fans might disagree with me, but I think it's different, but not ugly. The orange gloves would probably be better served if they were black though. Still, nice work here Mazzz, one of your best concepts yet.

Brian R's Jets concept is a good idea, but it would be even better without the U-Shaped curve at the bottom.

Either way, Brian R for COTW

Take the "Winnipeg" off the wordmark logo and D3troit's concept is great!
