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

Victoria Cougars (by Ted N)
Ted brings back the old Victoria Cougars of the WHL with this concept.  I really like the blue jersey, the striping looks quite good.  I'm not a big fan of the striping on the white jersey though, there are too many competing elements.  I'd recommend basing a new white jersey off of the blue jersey.  The white jersey also needs a NOB.  6/10

Grizzly Adams EHC Wolfsburg (by Martin L.)
Martin finishes up his DEL Winter Classic series with two concepts today.  I like the angled hem stripe, it's almost like a sash.  The number font is also good, it has a 70's vibe.  The bottom of the sleeve isn't my favourite, I don't think the big red and blue areas look good.  7/10

Cleveland Barons (by WinnipegJets96)
Here WinnipegJets96 gives us a look at what the Barons might look like if they were still around today.  The striping looks good, and the addition of silver is something I could easily see happening.  My only suggestion is to add a white outline to the logo like what was used in the 70's.  8/10

Straubing Tigers (by Martin L.)
This team is quite interesting, they're called the Tigers but they don't use a colour scheme associated with tigers.  It makes them more unique, but the it creates a bit of an issue with their logo using completely different colours than their jerseys.  But this is a Winter Classic concept, so if it was used in the past I think it should be used here.  I like the wordmark in the chest-stripe, and the TV numbers in the sleeve stripes.  I also like the boxes around the captain's patch, NOB, and back number.  Those elemnts really adds to the vintage feel.  Although with all those patches of white, I think this would be better without the shoulder yoke.  
Congratulations on finishing your series!!!  7.5/10

Philadelphia Flyers (by Dylan W.)
Dylan modernizes the Flyers uniforms, and adds more black.  I like how this is completely new, but also inspired by the Flyers first two jersey designs.  The best part of this is that the hem-stripes match the design at the end of the sleeves.  The only thing I don't like is how the shoulder yoke angles up to the collar, I prefer how it is done on their current jerseys.  8/10

Philadelphia Flyers (by Matt M.)
Matt also gives the Flyers new jerseys, but they don't look like anything the Flyers have ever worn (except maybe last year's Winter Classic).  I would kind of miss the Flyers' traditional full length shoulder yoke, but these would be perfect if the NHL would allow two alternates.  I like how the sleeve-stripes are similar yet different than the hem and shoulder stripes, it adds a bit of character.  Execution is almost perfect, except there are two shades of orange used.  8/10

Bayern Munchen (by Stephen T.)
I really now nothing about European football,  but I do know that this jersey looks great.  The off-centered logo is really unique, and it looks good.  The striping also looks nice.  My only concern is having the team name where the player's name normally goes, I keep thinking the players name is Bayern Munchen.  8.5/10

Columbus Blue Jackets (by Avi S.)
The future is starting to look up for the Blue Jackets, so it might be time to get a new look.  This concept by Avi would be good option.  I like the logos used, they really emphasize the Civil War theme.  I also like how the third jersey is inspired by the jackets original look.  And I love the state outline around the captain's letters.  The only thing I don't like is how similar the road jersey is to the Rangers road jersey.  8/10

bayern munich has the team name on the back above the numbers, and the player name beneath the numbers, good job keeping it authentic by Stephen T!

@Colin May: Thanks for the info, I didn't know that. Since that was my only concern, I'll now give Stephen's concept a COTW nomination.

I'll second stephen's bayern munich concept for COTW
