Oklahoma City Barons concepts (by Elias)
The home white jersey looks quite good. This colour scheme works very well for the Oilers farm team. The road blue jersey would be better, in my opinion, if the yoke was outlined in white. Or blue and then white! 7/10

Buffalo Sabres concept (by John H.)
This jersey just isn't working for me. The arm stripes are surrounded by grey, but then the hem stripes only have grey stripes in between them. I think that needs to be consistent. The yokes are also too unique to the Bruins that anyone else using them would just come off as a copycat. There are also a few execution errors here, such as the collar is grey on the front view, but black on the back. 3/10

Peoria Rivermen concepts (by Darren H.)
The jerseys are pretty cool. I really like the waves on the hem. The third jersey fits the idea of an "alternate" jersey nicely. I usually wouldn't like it, but it seems to work here. The only thing that I would change would be to add an outline to the yoke on the blue jersey, or just get rid of it entirely. 8/10

Oakland Seals concept (by WinnipegJets96)
I think on this concept, either the blue or the green needs to be a lighter shade. I would also add a thicker white outline to the player number and NOB, or just make the NOB white. The logo also seems quite pixelated and the blue "O" seems to turn green in between the seal's fin. 6/10

Anaheim Ducks concept (by Tristan)
I like the idea of adding orange to the old colour scheme, but I think the green and purple used here are too "standard". They look like they are the green and purple you would get in the basic box of 8 Crayola Crayons. I love that Tristan created his own logo, I just think that thicker lines would look more like the logos used today. 7/10

Carolina Hurricanes concepts (by Ian)
I think the home and road sweaters look really nice, but the 3rd jersey is not my cup of tea. I don't think the arm stripes go well with the hem stripes because the hem ones look like they use white and grey WITH red. The arm stripes look like they use red WITH grey and white. They don't sync up. 7/10

New York Rangers concept (by HJC)
I took the yoke stripes from the current road jersey and applied them to the arms and hem. Then I tried to bring back the popular Lady Liberty logo in a new way, but also in a way that would maintain its popularity. I think I have arched the NOB too much though.

Providence Bruins concepts (by Elias)
I always though that the old Bruins' 3rd jersey would look better in white than yellow! This is a really cool set for the AHL Bruins! COTW nom from me! 8/10

Victoriaville Tigres concepts (by Kevin) *Description on concept. Once again Kevin, congrats on re-designing the entire CHL! 7/10

Colorado Avalanche concepts (by Bobby P.)
This is Bobby would like to see if the Avs ever decided to get a new look...and they should! The Avs have such a great logo that it would be a shame to relegate it to shoulder patch status full-time. I really like the stripes on the jerseys though. One of these as a 3rd jersey would be excellent though. 8/10

New York Islanders concept (by Matt D.)
Matt intends this as a 3rd jersey, and as usual with the Islanders' 3rd, a concept is better than what they wear now. I think people were ready for an orange 3rd jersey this time around...too bad. Execution note, the knit pattern on the jersey shouldn't go over top of the player number and should stop at the hem stripes. 7/10

The Avs concept looks like the coyotes colors with blue. Not a fan
