It was announced that the game will be a tribute to the 1915 Stanley Cup between the Vancouver Millionaires of the PCHA and the Ottawa Senators of the NHA. So it sounds like we'll be seeing the Vancouver Millionaires jersey again. And maybe a white version of the Sens' current alternates? We'll find out, and maybe even guess it early since the Senators will be posting teasers on their Instagram and Twitter just as teams have been doing lately. What are you guys hoping this game looks like?

Enough about Heritage Classics and old jerseys and stuff. Time for something more important. Voting. Have you seen how sad some concepts have been looking. The look of pain and loneliness in their eyes is enough to break even the toughest of men into a puddle of tears. You can help though. With only 5 seconds of your time you can email a vote into Ryan and vote for Concept of the week, month, or even year. And sometimes, competitions. Please. Help vote for a concept. Think of all the good you can do, with just one email.
Ok now you can stop that video if you're not a blubbering mess by now. I sure hope that makes people vote and/or go adopt a dog or something.

And now onto the concepts!
Brooklyn Americans Concept - Rob C.
Rating: 6.5/10 - Jerseys look decent with the given identity.
Detroit Cougars Concept - Rob C.
Rating: 7/10 - Nice logo, but the beige/white thing needs to be figured out.
Colorado Avalanche Concept - Wings98
Rating: 7/10 - It's always nice to see someone take the Avs back to the zig zaggy jerseys of the past.
University of Maryland Concept (NCAA) - Mike S.
Rating: 7/10 - Execution and Idea is there. But personal design preferences prevent me from really liking the jersey, not your fault Mike.
Washington Capitals Concept - Dylan W.
Rating: 7/10 - I like the jersey up top and start to not like it so much as I look down. Really like the arms though
New York Rangers Stadium Series Concept - Michael G.
Rating: 7.5/10 - I like the striping and the jersey as a whole, but that white yoke is, meh.
New York Rangers Concept - Dylan W.
Rating: 8/10 - Overall, just an updated version of their current look that I think looks really sharp.
St. Louis Blues Alternate Jersey Concept - Tom V.
Rating: 8/10 - A nice blend of different eras for the Blues.
Team Austria Concept - Jets96
Rating: 8/10 - Never cared for those yokes on the white jersey, and the dark numbers on a dark jersey is just a pet peeve.
Team Latvia Concept - Jets96
Rating: 8/10 - The striping on the jerseys aren't mindblowingly amazing, but with these colors and this template they look really good.
Chicago Blackhawks Concept - Stephen T.
Rating: 9/10 - COTW Nom, I really want to give this a 10, but I've been saving that for the a truly perfect, original concept.
We're going to finish today's post with the finale of Jordan's NIke series! I know everyone has loved it, and I was skeptical at first since I don't care for Nike's way of designing hockey jerseys as of late, But Jordan's finding some great ways to go very minimalist while still looking great. Kudos Jordan! Keep up the great work.
Washington Capitals Concept - Jordan R.
Rating: 8/10 - Great primaries. But the alternate keeps this concept from getting a 9 out of me.
And now the very last concept of Jordan's Nike series.
Winnipeg Jets Concept - Jordan R.
Rating: 7.5/10 - Not a lot of changes to the primaries but the alternate is very average to me. Still, the execution makes the concept look sharp as a tack.
Well that's all folks! Great seeing another series come to an end. It's great to see the work ethic out there! What do you guys say about these jerseys!? I want to hear what you have to say!
