More Piartes ReDesing Entries (Thursday)

As I mentioned yesterday, the HJC jersey will be on sale until Sunday. This is due to minimal interest, but that's okay. Some people have expressed that they will be purchasing one and I'm sure we'll all be quite happy with it. If you do plan on purchasing a HJC jersey leave a comment here (so I know how many are interested) and then go to the HJC JERSEY page for all of the ordering info...and to place said order.

Today is the last day for the COTW vote
COTW Apr 16-22 vote (ends Thursday @ 11:59pm EST)

Portland Pirates ReDesign Entries
Get yours in before Sunday's 11:59pm EST deadline.

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

Minnesota Wild concepts (by Michael L.)
Michale sees these as what the Wild may have possibly used if the Edge jerseys were introduced at the beginning of the 2000's. This is another one of those Reebok cookie cutter jerseys that I'm not really fond of, but the execution here is terrific. 7/10

Oklahoma City Barons concept (by Tyler G.)
Tyler shows us what the Barons would look like if they modeled their sweaters after the current look of the Oilers. They almost did this for a charity jersey last season. Fairly good execution except for the heavily pixelated logo and the lack of AHL/Reebok marks on the bottom-back hem. 7/10

Edmonton Oilers concept (by Mazzz)
Mazzz keeps the current home and road sweaters (good choice) and then has modified the pre-Edge blue sweater as a new 3rd. It also looks like he wants the Oilers to draft Yakupov. I like this as a 3rd jersey, but the shoulder patch looks like it has been distorted and I think I prefer white numbers to bronze. 7/10

Dallas Stars concept (by Sam N.)
Sam tries something new with the rounded sleeve piping. I think it looks kinda cool. Obviously the darker black around the numbers and shoulder patches needs to be worked out. I think if the arm stripes were a little thinner, namely the white ones, this could be a real winner. 6/10

Montreal Canadiens concept (by D3troit1388)
Great Habs sweater here by D3troit! I love the old NHL shield used in the collar insert. I also really like how he has described what he based his concept on and how this jersey would be worn! 9/10

Pittsburgh Penguins concept (by Rylen)
I really like almost everything here and all of Rylen's explanations! My two problems have to do with colours. I find this yellow too bright. Something a little more rich, or perhaps the 1980's yellow would be good. Alsi, the black used on the sweater does not seem to be the same black that is used on the primary logo. 8/10

Vancouver Canucks concepts (by Justin)
I really like the concepts that come with their own descriptions! Anyone can feel free to do this with their concepts. Quality jerseys here that have been well executed, I'm just not a fan of the yoke piping on the white jersey. It's too bad that the Canucks don't find more uses for that "VC" logo. 8/10

St. Louis Blues concepts (by GKennedy)
In this instance, I think that the white jersey looks better than the blue one. This concept also seems really well executed. Seeing that circle logo used as a shoulder patch here, it almost seems too strong to be relegated to the shoulders. Maybe get rid of the circle and just have the primary logo also be the shoulder patches just like the Sabres of the 80's. 8/10

Philadelphia Flyers concept (by MasonII)
Would you Flyers fans accept a black version of the current sweater set? I like this as an alternate, but not enough to see it 12-15 times a year. For some reason I would only want to see it on really special games, like weekday afternoon games (if that were to happen). Final note though, I don't like the tri-coloured collar. 8/10

Connecticut Whale concept (by Scott M.)
I love this! It takes after the Rangers really well and would work great as a 3rd jersey! I love the accuracy of Scott's work here with the only blemish coming inside the collar with the AHL jersey tag. I'm also happy to see that a lot of people are getting good use out of the "shop.NHL.com template". COTW nom and 9/10.

@ Ryan:

If I were to make the arm stripes thinner, would the piping end at the stitching, or could it connect with the arm stripes as it currently does?

Ryan said...

I personally think it should connect with the arm stripes, as it does now. Of course, these are only my personal opinions. They aren't the "final say". Some people may like it the way you have it.

Justin said...

Agreed about the yoke outlines on my Vancouver concept. I regretted them after I sent it in haha.

But I'm going to give GKennedy's Blues concept a COTW nomination. I'm not sure about that logo as a shoulder patch but regardless, it looks great

Colin said...

Justin's concepts are very similar to some I have just posted on my new blog. Good job Justin, I love that you used the VC logo, it is awesome.

If you want to check out my Canucks jersey blog, it is at:

My blog is run in a similar fashion to Stephane's blog "Le troisième chandail", except for the Canucks.

Avi said...

ryan im interested in buying a jersey

Ryan said...

Thanks for the heads up Avi.

Scott said...

Love the Connecticut Whale concept.

@Ryan

Are there any other versions of the Shop template (with different collars)?

Steven Grant said...

I'll second Scott M, for cotw.

Also what's up with the spelling in the title, "Piartes Redesing".

Justin said...

Thanks, Colin. I'm a big Canucks fan myself. Your blog looks great. I'll definitely check in on it periodically and maybe send in some Canucks concepts!

Ryan said...

@Steven: Haha, missed that and no spell check in the titles.

@Scott: All of the collars from the NHLuniforms.com blank team templates will fit on the "Shop" template.

Looks like Tyler and Jim Pearce

had the same idea.

Ryan said...

I think everyone has had that idea...including the Barons themselves.
