Ok, Ducks stuff.....Now....
So now it appears that each Stadium Series jersey will be the same basic thing. New yoke cut, with angled arm stripes that will be slightly altered to fit the team's current look.
The Kings have a real hem stripe though, which I think makes the jersey look a lot better than it would otherwise. I haven't been able to find a full image of the Ducks jersey but it doesn't appear they have a hem stripe.
So there's the matchup. Orange and Gray. My final thoughts on the jerseys....
Ducks: I really like the orange and the new logo patch. Chrome duck foot...meh...The jersey seems very blank though without a yoke, or hem stripe. It might be too much orange. But we'll see how it looks on the ice. 7/10
Kings: Gray! I love the gray jersey look... The new patch looks great too. The chrome treatment doesn't look bad on the crown, it makes sense, but I'm still not a fan of the chrome. Disappointed that all the jerseys so far are following the same template-y look. But the hem stripe saves it. 8.5/10
What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments!
And now the regular concepts! But first, an artist ID card!
Now that you've met Martin, let's start off with a concept of his....
Here's a link to their store where you can see their jerseys. I'm indifferent towards the wheat color used here instead of white. Normally I want to see some white but it doesn't look bad here. The numbers seem too small and spaced too far apart, and the kerning (spacing between characters) in the nameplate is way too high. Space them closer together.
Rating: 6.5/10 - I like where this is headed but some changes could be made to improve.

Team Canada Olympic Jerseys - Dylan W.
Team USA Olympic Jerseys - Dylan W.
Montreal Canadiens Third Jersey Concept - Greg D.
Quebec Nordiques Concept - Rob C.
Rating: 7/10 - It's an over simplified update to the old Nordiques. I like the arm stripes but that's really the only part of the update I can get on board with.
Quebec Nordiques "Unused" Logos Concept - Rob C.
unused jerseys that the team was to use had they not moved. I like the color scheme, and it looks good in this very simple jersey. I'd like to see more angled lines, something to go with the logo better. This looks like someone took the paint bucket tool to Rob's other Nordiques concept. That's not always a bad thing, normally is, but this is a missed opportunity.
Rating: 7/10 - The color scheme saves this concept to me.
Team Czechoslovakia Concept - Stephen T.
Team Romania - Stephen T.
Vancouver Canucks De-Edge Third Jersey Concept - Steven G.
Rating: 6.5/10 - I want to see this actually worn. Maybe it looks really good on the ice. But I just cannot bring myself to like it when it's laid out like this. No offense Steven.
Anaheim Ducks Concept - Jets96
Rating: 8.5/10 and an COTW nom!
So everyone, there's a lot to talk about. The Kings and Ducks jerseys, and not to mention a lot of concepts today. Let's talk about it in the comments!
