Week of March 5-11, 2012

The winner of the St. Louis Blues ReDesign is me! Woo hoo!
It was a VERY close vote and I was in 2nd place until about 11:30 EST last night. That's when a vote came in that pushed me into first and the win. I will have full results tomorrow, but for now here are the top 3.
Ryan (HJC) - 23
Kevin - 22
St├ęphane - 16
Thanks to everyone who took part. I will now take this week to think about what competition we will start next week. I also would appreciate some feedback on what we should do next. Anything goes, just get some ideas in.

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

Phoenix Coyotes concept (by John H.)
This is John's first contribution to HJC. It's a good start, but there are a lot of things that need to be addressed here. First, the collar insert has been left blue from the jersey that was re-coloured to make this concept. Also, the player number on the back has been cut off. Next, the red used on the jersey does not match the red used in the logo. Start with these basics and your concepts will turn out much better in the future.

Team USA concepts (by Bobby P.)
The yokes are a neat idea. Team USA in the EA Sports NHL games uses the same thing. I don't care for the half and half collars. Overall, a good concept, just to me the blue looks more purple. Anyone else?

Monroeville Zombies concepts (by Stephen T.)
Who has seen Zack & Miri Make A Porno (Kevin Smith film)? Seth Rogen's character plays for this team in the movie, except they use very plain and boring grey jerseys with the logo at the bottom of Stephen's image. The problem with Stephen's concepts is that they are too dark. I had to get close to my screen to really see them.

Columbus Blue Jackets concepts (by Jeremy T.)
I like the arm stripes and the side panels are okay too. Perhaps thinner lines on the side might work even better? The font on the back of the jersey is used to match the font in the logo.

Dallas Stars concept (by Dave C.)
These are cool because they hint back to the North Stars, yet are not direct replicas of North Stars sweaters. One way to make these truly Dallas Stars sweaters is to use their darker shade of green rather than the old North Stars green.

Team Finland concepts (by Bobby P.)
I really like these. I think Finland has the most potential when it comes to international jerseys. I personally would do away with the dark blue yoke stripe and the "SUOMI" on the back. Just keep it to the front of the sweater.

Flint Tropics concepts (by John T.)
Another movie concepts today, this time from the movie Semi-Pro. Here, John has used the '09 All-Star Game sweaters for the fictional basketball team. I think it works really well and it was a cool idea to turn them into a hockey team. COTW nomination from me!

Colorado Avalanche concepts (by Justin C.)
Justin promotes the alternate and makes a matching road white. The 3rd jersey is really sharp. Actually, I really like all of these! As you guys know, I think Colorado should be first in line for an actual Re-design. Great stuff Justin, really well executed too.
