Friday: Cup Final Patch on Kings Jersey

The winner of COTW May 14-20 is Mason H. You can see Mason's winning Flyers concept on the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK page. I'd like to thank all of you who voted. It really helped avoid a tie and in the end it turned out being a very close vote!

My 2012 Stanley Cup Final patch arrived today! It will now take its place on my Kings road jersey. Kings fans, this is how your team's jerseys will look on Wednesday night! I can't begin to tell you all how impressed I am with everything that I have ordered from Sportsk.com. It's all officially licensed and not one order has been messed up to date. I've ordered about 5 jerseys from them and their prices are cheaper by $20-$35. I highly recommend them, especially if you live in/near Michigan, as that is where they are based.

Quebec Nordiques concepts (by NB14)
Obviously, NB14 has the Coyotes moving to Quebec. I think the home and road concepts are excellent. That alternate concept really starts to look like a Preds jersey, to me anyways, with those old Preds numbers. I also personally don`t like the mixing of the two Nordiques brands. 7/10

Binghamton Senators concepts (by Elias)
The jerseys are good, as is the logo. I just think that the logo is better suited as a shoulder patch. 7/10

Dallas Bulls concepts (by Chuckie)
Decent concepts here for this fictional team. My favourite is the orange alternate. It works quite nicely with the Stars' arched wordmark. 7/10

Washington Capitals concept (by Nick)
The jersey is simple and classic, so you know I'll like it. The execution is fairly good. A couple of suggestions would be to move the shoulder patches further away from the collar. Also, the NOB seems a little too big. 6/10

Drummondville Voltigeurs concepts (by Kevin) *Description on concept. 7/10


Toronto Maple Leafs concepts (by Ricky)
Sorry, there's not too much that I like here. I do like the current 3rd jersey striping, but I don't care for the use of black or the Rangers' drop shadow numbers. The "TML" in the leaf is a good logo, but I think it's better suited for the shoulders. 5/10

Peoria Rivermen concepts (by Elias)
Perfect choice using the old Blues' jerseys! These look great. I know I said previously that I would like to see more "character" in Elias' number font, but this is an instance where I would like to see the classic block font to go with a classic sweater. 8/10

St. Louis Blues concepts (by MasonII)
These are really great! Nice use of the trumpet logo as a shoulder patch. The double blue home jersey looks fantastic. As well, the execution is really nicely done! COTW nom from me. 9/10

Pittsburgh Penguins concepts (by D3troit1388)
These jerseys are like a tease. They are showing us hints of those great 80's sweaters, but then they don't go all the way as the hem stripes are left off. They're really well executed though. 7/10

Phoenix Coyotes concepts (by Tyler G.)
Tyler has Edge-ified the pre-Edge jerseys. He's also removed the sand colour from the logos. Returning the hem stripes to the jersey would be welcome, but I also enjoy the yokes currently found on the road sweater. Great execution from Tyler on these! 8/10

Shelby Cobra concept (by Scott M.)
If your a fan of cars or auto racing, this concept might speak to you. I am a fan of neither of those, so I can only speak to the execution here. As usual from Scott, it's excellent. 8/10

Gatineau Olympiques concepts (by Kevin) *Description on concept. 7/10

Scott, EXCELLENT job on the Shelby Cobra jersey. I've had my Mustang out since Carroll Shelby died. RIP Carroll Shelby

For the Brooklyn Islanders, would they be able to use that B? Is that not owned by the LA Dodgers?

Im sorry but the Kansas City Warriors jersey does nothing for me. I dont like the idea of the name nor the logos. I have a Royals jersey why would I want a Royals jersey for a hockey team other than the Mavericks tribute jersey to them. If KC does get an NHL team I bet it would be called the Scouts or Blades

I second Mason's Blues concept.
