Good day jersey freaks. I'm assuming you've all heard the news about the possibility of the NHL having 6 outdoor games next season, which would be held in Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Vancouver. How do you guys feel about it? I personally think it's overkill, but the leaguedoes owe us big time for the half of a season we lost this year, so maybe, and hopefully, this only lasts a year. Also.....maybe we'll see a bunch of new jerseys for the games!

Ok, NOW we can get to today's regularly scheduled concepts...
New York Yankees Hockey Concept - (DDragon60)
St. Cloud State (NCAA) - (Bobby P.)
New York Rangers Concept - (Joe A)
Houston Astros Hockey Concept - (DDragon60)Astro's old "Tequila Sunrise" jerseys since the new look is based off of the look from around that era. The arched name is a nice touch. I'd just make the striping thicker overall and move the hem stripes down a bit. Also move the shoulder patches off of the collar a little bit. Get your name somewhere on the concept as well.
Florida Panthers Concept - (Anthony C.)
Anthony redesigns the Panthers and gives them a whole new set of jerseys. Yellow now plays a bigger role in the color scheme, at least for the blue and white jerseys. I really like how blue is used on the arms of the white jersey. I like the diagonal striping on the arms and sides of the jersey but not so much on the socks. I also feel like the blue and white jerseys could use a bit more red. The blue jersey's socks should be blue at the bottom in my opinion as well. Still, pretty solid concept.
Montreal Canadiens Concept - (Stephen T).
Stephen is back and this time with a Canadiens concept. I rather like this. Most people will slam any Canadiens concept but I actually see this as an improvement to their current white jersey but this could also make a really nice third jersey for the team. Only thing I would fix is make the arm and sock striping the same thickness as the hem and shoulder stripes.
Philadelphia Flyers Concept - (Jets96)
Our good buddy Jets takes the Flyers old 3D logo and puts it on a recolored St. Louis jersey. Now, I actually don't mind this template, I rather like it. But since two teams (Blues and Preds) already wear it I would hate to see this jersey being used, but pretend those other jerseys don't exist, I actually like the jersey a lot. The Flyers have never had completely straight stripes on their arms so why start now? And the silver piping really fits in with the logo, even though I hate that logo. Overall solid concept, but oh wait..... not the long pants...get rid of those... there's a good reason the pants fad didn't last...
Hartford Whalers Concept - (Jets96)
Yale University (NCAA) - (Bobby P.)
