Friday: Last Day To Vote

Today is the last day for Committee Members to vote for the COTW. Pay attention to the Twitter bar on the side of the page and the Facebook page. Hopefully I can post the winner on there.
COTW June 11-17 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm EST)

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

Los Angeles Kings concepts (by Kevin D.)
Well, the Kings have already worn the purple sweater at home mostly. So, it would be quite cool to see them roll into town wearing those yellow jerseys. I think the numbers used here may be inaccurate, unless that's intentional. 7/10

New York Rangers concept (by Brandon C.)
Bringing back the Lady Liberty jersey as a 3rd would be very popular. I personally would re-colour the logo to go on the shoulders. 7/10

Team New England concepts (by Bobby P.)
I would use far less green. As it is right now, these look like Bruins Christmas jerseys. I think I would just use the green as a very thin trim around the numbers and stripes. 6/10

Team Quebec concepts (by Bobby P.)
Nice work here. I can't really say anything negative about them. They seem to fit Quebec perfectly. 8/10

Buffalo Sabres jersey (John T.)
A couple of months ago I let you all know that RiverCitySports.com had Buffa-slug jerseys on for $20 ($40 for authentics). I think they still do! Anyways, John bought a bunch of replicas for his hockey team and had them numbered with the same style numbering that was used on the red and black Sabres jerseys. They look pretty good and John is going to send action shots down the road, if he can get them.

Kitchener-Waterloo Oilers concepts (by Dmitri)
Dmitri has moved the Oilers' farm club to the K.W. I think a move out of Oklahoma City wouldn't be a bad thing. Jerseys choices for the home and road are quite good. However, I am not a fan of the two blues being used on the alternate sweater and equipment. 7/10

St. Louis Blues concepts (by Cody)
We've seen the home and road concepts before from Cody. The new piece is the 3rd jersey. With the hem stripes so up-front, I don't think shoulder yokes are needed. They crowd the jersey. Also, those hem stripes are so big and then the arm stripes are so small. I would even those up. 7/10

Hockey Night in Canada concept (by Michael L.)
Here is another HNIC concept from Michael. I really dig this one. I even like the hem trim that is cut off at the sides. Also, nice touch with the leaf in the collar insert. 8/10

Indiana Hoosiers concepts (by NB14)
I like all of these jerseys. The only part I would change is to get rid of the yokes on the white sweater. 8/10

Sherbrooke Phoenix concepts (by WinnipegJets96)
I really like the sublimated bolts on the front of the sweaters. I'm not liking the Bruins yokes used though. I would also use the gold as a trim, just like it's used in the logo. 7/10

Brynäs IF Elitserien concepts (by Kyle C.)
This team currently has such great and unique sweaters, that these seem like a downgrade. They would be okay without the knowledge of what Brynäs currently wears. I just think Kyle took away something that's different and works and has replaced it with something rather simple. 6/10

Vancouver Canucks concepts (by Colin M.) * Description on concepts. 8/10

Pittsburgh Penguins concepts (by Kevin D.)
These are well executed and I know the idea of the series is to look back at the late 60's and early 70's. However, when you talk retro and Penguins I think all people really want to see now is black and yellow. 7/10

Winnipeg Jets concept (by Brandon C.)
I really like the stripes here for a Jets 3rd jersey. This is also perfectly executed. I'm not a big fan of the wordmark being used as a primary logo. Also, just because of the natural rivalry, due to the proximity of Winnipeg to Edmonton, I don't think that you would want to use the typical Oilers collar. 7/10

@ winnipegjets96: like it! Only one thing: can't replace silver with gold... Silver is kinda of town's color (I'm form Sherbrooke). Otherwise, personally, I do like the Bruins' yokes. Could even enlarge the gold - which should be silver! - band on them.
