Hey everyone! Dylan A. here with you today. The two Dylans have switched days as Wednesdays have become too busy for me to keep writing, and I didn't want to leave the site and my writing duties. You know what else I don't want to do? I don't want to forget to remind you to vote.
COTY-October vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW Nov 4-10 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Rating: 6/10 - Not very creative. Very few actual change from their actual primary jerseys. Execution is good except for the New York script being low.
Rating: 6/10 - Colors look good, less red would be better. Find a new template though, these are Ducks sweaters.
New Jersey Devils Concept - Wings98
Rating: 7/10 - Execution is improving by a lot!
Philadelphia Flyers Concept - Dylan W
Rating: 7/10 - Overall good set, similar to current Philly jerseys, some better things, some worse things. Good work and execution as always.
Winnipeg Jets Concept - Jets96
Rating: 7/10 - I prefer a different template, not a Ducks one, but it fits here somewhat because of the logo.
DC United (MLS) Hockey Jersey Concept - Phil B.
Rating: 7/10 - Pretty could interpretation of a soccer team jersey, could be better and resemble their actual kits more.
New York Islanders Concept - Jordan R.
Now onto this concept....Not super different than what they wear now but the stripes stay in the middle of the arm instead of taking up the bottom half of it. I like that though. I do really like the stripes on their current jersey that run off the cuff. I'd like to see the orange stripes on the hem as well. I like the black, gray, and white alternate too. Well executed. I don't prefer the wordmark, but I like how the jersey keeps the look of the other two jerseys. I also like the new logo. One of the better Brooklyn-ized Islanders logos I've seen thus far.
Rating: 7.5/10 - Not super different but I miss the larger arm stripes that go off the cuff, and that logo is great.
Chicago Blackhawks Stadium Series Concept - Ryan (HJC)
Ryan calls upon my favorite Blackhawks jersey of all time for inspiration here. Big points with me. I don't know how I feel about the stripe above the TV number. Seems like a weird place for it. I'm ok with the stripes not going across the chest but I'd like to see the arm striping pattern along the hem. I miss the "C" logos on the shoulder too. A recolored vintage version, like on their last alternate, would be golden.
Rating: 7.5/10 - Great start but some missed opportunities with the striping and "C" logo hurt this concept in my eyes.
Nashville Predators Concept - Jordan R.
Rating: 8/10 - Good look for Nashville, says "Nike was here" without being ugly or too boring
Breaking Bad Hockey Jersey Concept - Brian B.
Rating: 8/10 - Withheld the urge to go too gimmicky and the jersey looks better because of it.
Dallas Stars Alternate Jersey Concept - Frank C.
Rating: 8/10 - Simple and similar to the home and away, but different enough to get away with being an alternate.
Red Bull New York (MLS) Hockey Jersey Concept - Phil B.
Pittsburgh Penguins Stadium Series Concept - Ryan (HJC)
Rating: 8/10 - Great idea for a throwback, they'd better do it. Not "creative" but it's a throwback, so, it doesn't have to be....meh
Anaheim Ducks Concept - David P.
Rating: 9/10 - Really fantastic set here but that white is the CRÈME DE LA CRÈME of Ducks jerseys. COTW Nom!
