Manchester Monarchs concepts (by Elias)
I really miss the gold trim on these. It's kind of cool that Elias went with the old "Forum Purple" though. I think I prefer the Monarch current unique striping to this. 7/10

St. John Sea Dogs concepts (by Kevin) *Description on concept. 7/10

Edmonton Oilers concept (by Deferoiler)
This one is based on the WHA Alberta Oilers sweater. Not too bad of an idea, but I don't think orange pants with an orange jersey and socks would look great. Also, the primary logo appears to be a bit too big and the hem stripes on the front are not the same thickness as the ones that appear on the back. 6/10

Beauport Harfangs concepts (by Jay V.)
As you can see from Jay's note, this is a former QMJHL team. I like that Jay went outside of the box and tried to do something different. However, I think these jerseys need some thick solid colour stripes to at least break up the other stripes a bit. These definitely have some potential. 7/10

Columbus Blue Jackets concept (by Kirk)
I think hem stripes that match the arms stripes would go a long way to making this concept look a little more "full". I like the idea of using the bug as the primary logo, but he looks like he's holding his breath and has gone blue in the face. I would just make it white. 7/10

Denver Cutthroats concepts (by WinnipegJets96)
For the Cutthroats first season in the CeHL, Jets96 has put them in a nice and classic striped jersey. He's also switched the league over to the Nike Swift jerseys. Here's an execution note, the player numbers should go over top of the tie-down on the back of this jersey. 7/10

New York Islanders concepts (by Stephen T.)
Wow, this is actually quite neat and original! I didn't like the stripes at first glance, but then I took some more time and realized this could really work and it's something new we haven't seen before. Seeing as there are so many stripes on the jerseys, I would have gone with plain blue pants. 8/10

Pittsburgh Penguins concepts (by Dylan A.) *Description on concepts. 9/10

Milwaukee Admirals concepts (by Elias)
These are really excellent jerseys. Milwaukee has some great colours too, so it makes it nice and easy to create a good concept for them. 8/10

Colorado Avalanche concepts (by Matt M.)
Matt offers up this re-design of the Avs, in which he's used classic stripes and removed black from the colour scheme almost completely. Even though these look great and I do really like them, I think I would feel a bit under-whelmed if the Avs released these as new jerseys. There's absolutely nothing wrong with them, I just feel with such great logos that they could do more. 8/10

California Golden Sharks (Will S.)
Will had Ross Taylor's Golden Sharks mash-up logo made into an actual crest. He then placed the crest on a custom re-coloured old Sens 3rd jersey. This looks great when it comes to life!

Val-d'or Foreurs concepts (by Kevin) *Description on concept. 8/10

Will and Ryan, when you hade the jerseys made, did they come from Ice Jerseys' "Jersey Builder" and if so, how much did they cost?

Ryan said...

@Ricky: I used Jersey53.ca. It looks like Will used someone different.

Tex said...

Dylan for COTW! great work, only thing I would chnge would be swapping the logos.

Jersey was one I got off Ebay; I removed the crest and shoulder patches that were originally on it (Azure Dynamics).

I made the Golden Sharks crest myself out of tackle twill and then sewed it onto the jersey.
