Tuesday: Lions and Tigers and Bears

Welcome to another Tuesday here on HJC.  I don't have any news or anything, so I'll get straight to the voting reminders.

COTW Mar 18-24 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm EST)
Whoopee ReDesign Top 5 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm EST)

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

BC Lions (by Ted N.)
Like:  It's cool seeing concepts for CFL teams, especially the Lions since they're my local team.  I like the striping, it's quite different than their football jerseys using so much black, but it does look good.  I also like seeing the paw-print logo as a shoulder patch and I'm a fan of teams using both home and road pants.
Dislike:  One of my pet-peeves is un-necessary logo recolours, and I don't think recolouring the logo is necessary here.  Execution wise, the inside collar area on the orange jersey should be coloured orange.
Suggestions:  I don't think the roundel is needed in the logo, but if you're going to keep it, I'd go with the version on the white jersey, because I like the orange lion better.  8/10

Colorado College (by Adam H.)
Like:  The tiger-stripe pattern is really unique, and while I don't think it would work in the NHL, I think it's great for a college hockey team.  The helmets are really cool, it's not often you see the helmet used as a design element.
Dislike:  While I think the primary logo is okay, I'm not a fan of the secondary logo or wordmark.  The details on the secondary logo are too small, and I find the wordmark really hard to read.  The logos on the jerseys are a bit large.  There are also two shades of black used.
Suggestions:  I think it would look better if the sleeve and hem stripes were the same thickness.  7/10

Memphis Grizzlies (by Mike S.)
Like:  I like how white isn't used anywhere on the jersey.  The choices for logos, fonts, and striping pattern are also all good.
Dislike:  I think the primary logo needs an outline to stand out from the jersey.  Also the colours on the logos are different than the jersey, and there are no TV numbers.  I have no other suggestions.  8/10

Los Angeles Kings (by Tommy M.)
Like:  Dropping silver is a great move in my opinion.  The striping looks good, I especially like the double outline on the road jerseys shoulder yoke.  And the pant stripes is great, I love how it kind of frames the logo.
Dislike:  I can't say I'm a fan of that logo, although their current shield logo isn't really any better.  I also think the socks need stripes, they look like practice socks right now.
Suggestions:  I think something like this logo might be a better option.  8/10

Ottawa Senators (by Stephen T.)
Like:  I like the original Senators barber-pole jerseys, I think they would be great for an outdoor game or for a one time thing like the Canucks did with the Millionaires jerseys.  Here Stephen has done a good job of adapting those jerseys to the Nike Swift Uniform template.
Dislike:  The logo is really big, and a bit off-centered.
Suggestions:  I'd recommend resizing the logo about 60-70% smaller.  I also think the background for all the names and numbers should be the same colour (either make the TV number's background red, or the other's black).  8/10

Miami University (by Adam H.)
Like:  The third jersey is really nice, in my opinion the best of the bunch.  The details are great on that jersey, like the state-outline around the captian's C, and the slogan on the rear hem.  I do like how the home and road are now different than the Red Wings, but at the same time the sleeves look kind of empty.
Dislike:  The main logos are too large.  I also don't like how the third jersey has both hem-stripes and hem-piping.
Suggestions:  There are lots of good logos shown at the bottom of the concept, I think any of them would look great on the front of a jersey.  7/10

Regina Pats (by Dylan W.)
Like:  The sleeve stripes look really nice.  They're still traditional stripes, but they are also somewhat unique.  The sublimated "REGINA" wordmark is a cool feature.
Dislike:  I don't like how the bottom part of the hem stripe is curved, but the rest is straight.
Suggestions:  I think completely matching the hem stripe to the sleeve stripe would be the best choice.  8/10

North Carolina Tar Heels (by Dylan A.)
Like:  Yesterday we saw Dylan's home and road concepts for the Tar Heels, and this is his concept for an alternate jersey.  I love the argyle pattern in the stripes.  I believe the Tar Heels basketball team use that pattern, and it think it works great on a hockey jersey.  I like all the other choices made too.
Dislike:  Nothing.
COTW nomination from me!!!!  9.5/10

New York Rangers (by Brandon C.)
Like:  The striping pattern looks great.  I like how it is kind-of inspired by their road jersey, but at the same time it's very different.  I also like seeing the shield logo used front and center, and the navy blue also looks good.  Brandon even edited the collar to match the striping better.
Dislike:  I'm nit-picking here, but I think the NOB and back number should be closer together, and the TV numbers should be a bit higher up.
I hope someone gives this a COTW nomination, as I think it deserves it but I can't nominate two.  9/10

Brandon C's rangers concept is very similar to this concept posted on icethetics and I believe I remember seeing it on HJC aswell http://www.icethetics.info/concepts/2013/1/24/0341-swell-third-for-big-apple.html

I just discovered this blog, and I noticed my hfboards avatar in the Kings concept. I appreciate the credit Tommy W. I like what you've done with it. I think the logo would probably remain the same on both jerseys however, rather than changing colors based on home/away. Still, it's a nice and clean concept overall.

By the way, I've actually since tweaked the logo based on the same idea, and made it more angular, sharp and clean. It's here:
