Thursday: Champions and the Dandy Lions

from sportslogos.net
Hello all! Tyler here on this HJC Thursday and the Hawks are champions! What a fun season it's been and I already can't wait for next season. The Blackhawks championship parade is tomorrow in Chicago and I wish I could go, but unfortunately I live in Texas. Anyway, we have a ton of concepts to get too, so let's get going!

Team Switzerland concept (By: Gerard M.)


Gerard gets us started with a Team Switzerland concept. I like the striping, and the chest stripe on the white jersey looks cool. I'm not sure about that font, I would go with just a standard block font. Good execution. 7/10

Edmonton Oilers concept (By: Bobby P.)


Bobby has made some changes to the Edmonton Oilers uniforms. Things I noticed is there is only one outline on the numbers instead of two, the reebok logos are no longer white, and the home striping is different. Also, the pant striping is simplified. Both of the Reebok logos would look better if they stayed white, in my opinion. I like the new numbers with the one outline, but I'm not sure about the new home striping, but I don't mind it. Good execution, too. 7/10

Spokane Chiefs WHL concept (By: Dylan W.)


Dylan has some umm.. unique Spokane Chiefs concepts for us here. I like the feathers from the logo on the stripes. The number/name fonts look good. One thing I don't like is the away yoke, it seems unnecessary too me. Great execution too. 8/10

Gwinnett Gladiators ECHL concept (By: Mike S.)


Continuing his ECHL redesign, Mike has some very stripy Gwinnett Gladiators concepts here. I like the vertical and arm striping, and the "diamonds" on the hem are cool. One thing I don't like is the sock stripes, I wish they were just horizontal, not diagonal. Love the creativity here. Great job. 7.5/10

Tampa Bay Lightning concept (By: Gerard M.)


Gerard has updated the Lightning's look and I really like these. I love the addition of grey and the yoke on the away is cool. The striping all looks great. I also like that the logo remained untouched. I'm not a huge fan of the alternate, but the Lightning did win the cup in those jerseys, so I could see it happening. Great job here Gerard. 8.5/10

Edmonton Oilers concept (By: Josh L.)


Our second Oilers concept of the day, Josh brings us an orange alternate sweater. I like everything except the oil drop on the arms. Also, I can't quite tell what that shoulder patch is. I think it's Alberta, but I'm not sure. Cool concept here. 7/10

Calgary Flames concept (By: Bobby P.)


Bobby does exactly what the Flames should do here. Enough said. 8.5/10

St. Louis Blues concept (By: Stephen T.)


We have two Blues concepts coming up here and this is the first. It's a nike concept too. I don't like the new striping, and I think the away jersey could use some more gold and light blue. Other then that, I like it and could see Nike doing something like this. 6.5/10

St. Louis Blues concept (By: Gerard M.)


Our second Blues concept, Gerard does something I wouldn't mind the Blues doing. Just go with traditional striping. No piping, no "Preds" arm striping. I love these. Also, the navy blue alternate is missing a Reebok logo on the back. Great job here Gerard. 8.5/10

Seattle Dandy Lions [Fake Hockey League] Jersey Timeline (By: CPM)

1967-1973 Jerseys


1973-1985 Jerseys


1985-1995 Jerseys


1995-2007 Jerseys


2007-Present Jerseys


I really love when people do these kinds of things. Create a team, and go back in time and make what the jerseys would look like way back when. CPM does it very well here. I'm not sure about the team name, but I've seen way worse. The presentation is awesome. My favorite set would have to be the original 1967-1973 jerseys. That original logo is cool too. Awesome job, CPM! 9/10 and a COTW nom from me!

Thanks for reading, have a good Friday everyone!

CPM's jersey timelines are fantastic! I can't wait to see more of them! I'll second his series for COTW. Great Job!

And on Gerard's Lightning concept, I was wrong, he didn't add grey.

It looked like there was some grey to me at first.

I'm gonna nominate Gerard's Lightning set for COTW. Everything is exactly what it should be. Great stuff
