Hello everybody, welcome to HJC on this lovely Thursday. We have some concepts to get to, but first some news! The Dallas Stars will be unveiling their long-awaited new uniforms and logos on June 4th, a date I can't wait for. I was starting to accept the Stars rather boring uniforms, but they could just be so much better, and I hope that's what we get on June 4th. Anyway, let's get going!
Here are the daily voting reminders...

Dylan starts us out today with a cool Avs concept. I love it. Why? BLUE! The Avs should drop the burgundy, grey, and black. Blue and white! Not only does it look good, it fits with their name, and it's a tribute to the Nordiques. I love the striping. I don't mind the numbers on the front. The recolored logo looks great, I also like how the puck is still black. I would take this any day over the "apron strings" they wear now. Awesome job here Dylan. 9/10 and a COTW nom from me
New York Islanders Outdoor Game concept (By: Mike S.)
Mike continues his outdoor game concepts with the Islanders-Rangers from Yankee Stadium. People normally don't like the "vintage white" but I like it here. My one problem here is the socks, I think they should just be like the hem striping. Other then that, good job here. 7.5/10
Ottawa 67's OHL concept (By: AJH)
Alan has a cool 67's concept for us here. I like both jerseys. Don't have many comments here. I don't think this is too different from what they wear now, is it. My one problem is the red socks, I think the stripes should be thicker. I'll let the description on the concept speak for itself. 7.5/10
Team USA IIHF concept (By: Patrick C.)
The World Championship's are underway and Patrick has a Team USA concept for us here. To start off, one thing you should do is remove the collars that you didn't use from the concept for presentation purposes. I like the arm striping and the yoke-nike-things don't look too bad. I like the stars on the arms too. I prefer USA to have a more classic jersey style, but this could be cool. Good job here Patrick. 7/10
Chicago Blackhawks concept (By: Michael G.)
How about the 'Hawks? Michael has them playing in a Winter Classic in the near future, and I hope that does happen. I don't really like all the thin red stripes, there should be some vintage white somewhere in there. I like the logos used. The pants are good too, but don't seem to fit the mostly red and black jersey. I don't like the font, just use the normal Blackhawks font. Overall, not bad. 7.5/10
Washington Capitals concept (By: Mike M.)
Some people like the pre-EDGE Capitals look, I'm not one of them. But these look awesome. I like the logo, and I don't mind the font which was used on these uniforms originally. The striping looks great, and I love the "weagle" logo on the shoulders. Great job here Mike. 8.5/10
Houston Aeros AHL concept (By: Andrew G.)
Well, this is awkward. The Houston Aeros are now the Iowa Wild, but why not a concept for 'em? Andrew goes back to the old Aeros colors of dark and light blue. I like all the jerseys here, the home and away uniforms going back to that of their parent club, the Wild. I also like the Canucks-type alternate jersey. The logos are awesome, too. Great job overall here, Andrew. 8.5/10
Thanks for reading, have a good Friday everyone!
