HJC Open Round 1 votes (end Sunday @ 11:59pm EST)

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

Carlton Blues concept (by Matt D.)
Matt has decided to do a concept series for the AFL (Australian Football League), which is Australian rules football. I don't know anything about the AFL and its teams, so I can only comment on how the jerseys look. These look simple and classic, which seems fitting considering their actual uniform. 8/10

Colorado Eagles concepts (by WinnipegJets96) *Description on concept. 8/10

Quebec Nordiques concept (by Tristan)
The sublimated shoulder patches are good, but the black in the logo and collar really make this jersey even darken than it has to be. I get using the Avs numbers, but they fit the Avs not the Nordiques. Execution errors include loose pixels at the tips of the collar and more loose pixels in the laces. 6/10

Las Vegas Gamblers concepts (by Chuckie)
I would like to see something on the hem of the jerseys. Considering Las Vegas is always buzzing with activity, I feel like the jerseys should as well. I also think the logo is bad as a primary and more fitting as a shoulder patch. The logo on the 3rd jersey is better. 6/10

Philadelphia Flyers concept (by Ryan P.)
Another black version of their current sweater. I feel like the numbers could use an orange outline. Also, the black in the logo does not match the black used on the jersey. Finally, there are a lot of loose pixels around the logo. Take a look at the TUTORIALS link on the side of the page for a lot of helpful tips. 5/10

New Jersey Devils concept (by NB14)
I kind of like this jersey, especially the double trimmed cuffs. I think the logo needs to be bigger and have an outline. Right now I can't tell if it's supposed to be the usual logo or a white circle with NJ in it. 7/10

Toronto Maple Leafs concepts (by Stephen T.)
Stephen has used the jerseys from the 70's and 80's and it's funny how he's done "a Harold Ballard" and used same colour names on the jerseys. 7/10

Essendon Bombers concept (by Matt D.)
I like how Matt has angled the stripes. It sort of makes it look like the plane has ripped through a black jersey, revealing a red one underneath. One problem, it seems, would be that the numbers on the back are too close together. 8/10

Evansville Icemen concepts (by WinnipegJets96) *Description on concept. 6/10

Hartford Whalers concepts (by MasonII)
Looks like Mason has the Coyotes moving to Hartford. I don't see Hartford getting a team now that Baldwin had his agreement with the Whale and Rangers ended only two years into in. Anyways, I like these jerseys, but I have always preferred the Whalers in green, not blue. Very nicely executed. 8/10

Philadelphia Flyers Nascar concept (by Kevin D.)
This is a first on HJC. Kevin has submitted a Nascar with Flyers styling on it. It looks real, like it would totally be accepted making left turns for a few hours with some other cars. I would like to see the typical Flyers numbers instead of the ones used. 8/10

Ottawa 67's concepts (by Nevill)
Nevill has kept the home and road jerseys the same and then he's re-introduced the black alternate jersey from the early 2000's. I guess this is Nevill's ideal 67's set. 7/10

Chicago Blackhawks concept (by Tyler G.)
This one is based on the Hawks' jersey from their first season. He's simplified the yokes though, which wasn't a bad choice. It would be really cool to see the Hawks step on the ice for a Classic in these. Especially as the road team or "bad guys". These look like great "bad guys" sweaters! Very nicely executed. 8/10

Dallas Stars concepts (by D3troit1388)
They're simple and somewhat predictable, but is there really anything wrong with the Stars wearing these? No, they're damn near perfect for the Stars! The only small adjustment I would make would be to go with a black and gold trim on the collars instead of just black. COTW nom from me! 8/10

Come back tomorrow (Saturday) around 2:00pm EST, for a Weekend HJC post!

second nevill for COTW

Nevill said...

Thanks for the support, guys. Yes, the 67's jerseys here are similar, but those who have seen the change from the original CCM days to the current Reebok era, will spot the minute differences here. I believe this would be an ideal and cleaner set than what they currently wear.

Kevin's presentation on that NASCAR concept is amazing. Also love that Whalers jersey.

The CFC logo should be up a little higher otherwise it's a 10/10 for me.
The Dons concept, however is just the same it's missing something but I can't place it. so minus a half point because of that and another half point because as a true Kangas fan that bleeds Roo Blue, I couldn't give it a perfect score because I didn't want to round the half point up.
So far so good!
