Jersey Collection (Deferoiler)
If you couldn't tell by his handle, I think you'll know now that Deferoiler is an Oilers fan. The autographed sweaters are pretty cool, especially the Gretzky and Crosby signatures. If you haven't sent in your jersey collection before, or it has been updated several times, feel free to send it in so it can be posted for everyone to see.

Columbus Blue Jackets concept (by Ryan W.)
The jersey itself is okay. The execution is the problem here. I think the logo is too small and if you're not going to put on a player number then there's no reason to show us the back of the sweater. There are loose pixels on the collar and some jersey stripes either go outside the lines or don't go to the lines. Click on the TUTORIALS banner on the side to get a lot of helpful tips to improve your concepts. We look forward to seeing more. 4/10

Rochester Americans concepts (by NB14)
I like the home and road sweaters here. On the re-coloured Sens sweater, I think the logo needs to be bigger, as in slightly taller than the chest stripes. As for the other specialty jersey, I would get rid of the stars on the bottom and have the "Americans" blue bar be bigger. 6/10

Buffalo Sabres concepts (by Ian)
Is this what the Sabres might have looked like if they kept their black and red look for the Edge transition? Fairly well executed, but your red and black are not consistent from the logos to the jerseys. Also,try not to leave the TM or R on the logos as we try to be as accurate as possible with jersey concepts. 5/10

Buffalo Sabres concepts (by Tyler G.)
Tyler has made some adjustment to the former 3rd jersey and has added a matching white version. The execution is very good and I like the way that Tyler has done the sleeve and hem stripes. Yellow on white gets lost easily, but he's done a good job here keeping the yellow present and hint to the white Sabres sweater of the 80's. 8/10

Phoenix Coyotes concept (by WinnipegJets96)
Jets96 made a few adjustments to this concept which was previously posted. I think it's an improvement, but I still think it would be better if the red joined with the arm and hem pattern. I'd also lower everything on the hem and remove the big sand coloured stripe. 7/10

Pittsburgh Penguins concept (by Kyle C.)
This is a perfectly executed concept, but it lacks any kind of uniqueness. I think you could throw any logo on this template and adjust the colours. Kyle even change the unique Penguins numbers. That would have helped make this a Penguins' jersey. Execution, as I said, is perfect. 8/10

Team Finland concept (by Brady)
I think works a hundred times better for Finland than it did for the Canadiens three seasons ago. I'm just not a fan of the flag on the yokes. On the back view, you would need the flag to appear in the opposite direction for this one to make proper sense. The multiple stripes are a great idea for Team Finland though. 7/10

Colorado Avalanche concepts (by Steven G.)
Steven has gone back to the original Avalanche jerseys, but he has removed the black for a darker blue. I really like the colour switch, but personally I'd like to move forward with the Avs rather than go back. I also don't care for the numbers on the white jersey being in blue trimmed in the lighter blue. I think that inside trim should be white. 8/10

San Jose Sharks concepts (by Matt D.)
I really love the grey alternate! I also like the home and road concepts, but I think the black yokes make the jerseys too dark. I think the socks look great. I really like the black on those, as it goes down into the skates. Solid execution as always, so a COTW nom from me! 8/10

Brady for COTW! Very cool design.

Steven Grant said...

I'll second Brady for cotw.

Also WinnipegJets96, I made a Coyotes jersey with very similar striping. I just thought I'd let you know, so when I post it you don't think I stole it.

Why does every jersey have Robyn Rieger's name on it?

Ryan said...

@Anon: It's actually spelled Robyn REGEHR.

Perhaps Rieger might be Elias' name?
