Good afternoon everyone! Not a whole lot to say other than that the NHL preseason has started! But, like, whatever, you know. Other than that, not a whole lot going on at the time I'm writing this post, so let's just get right into it!
We've been having a pretty good turnout for voting these past few weeks, but we could still be doing better! Only one vote going on this week.....
COTW Sept 9-15 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Also, if you're going to enter the USSR Competition here's the deadline for that,
Soviet Union entries (due by Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Speaking of, here's today's entires for the competition
And now, today's concepts!
Montana State Bobcats (NCAA) Concept - (Jake88)
Tampa Bay Lightning Concept - (Matt M.)
NHL All Star Jerseys Concept - (Matt R.)
Chicago Blackhawks Concept - (Matt R.)
Buffalo Sabres Alternate Jersey Concept - (Ryan - HJC)
University of South Florida Bulls (NCAA) Concept - (Stephen T.)
St. Louis Blues (De-Edge) Concept - (Steven G.)
Calgary Flames Concept - (Bastian S.)
San Jose Sharks Concept - (Bastian S.)
Buffalo Sabres Alternate Jersey Concept - (Kyle N.)
Kyle also brings us a new Sabres third that, like Ryan's from earlier, is better than what the team went with. It's a little stripe heavy, but a stripe heavy jersey is better than a poop heavy jersey. The logo seems a bit large. The stripes give off a throwback feel and the "BUFFALO" on the shoulders does too. I'd like to see that wordmark on the chest again but shoulders works too. Some white, or even silver" trim on the stripes would be nice. Still a decent jersey though.
So that ends another day here at HJC. I'm expecting a few different COTW nominations today so I expect to see them. Y'all better vote too, we ain't kiddin' around about that. Don't forget to get in your entries for the USSR competition as well!
