As far as HJC, there is only one vote currently going on and that is for COTW. Amongst all the excitement surrounding the Team Competition, don't forget to vote for the COTW. Not voting for COTW is worse than staring into the new Bradley University mascot's eyes.
Once more, before that Gargoyle shows up at your front door, remember to vote for COTW!
COTW Feb 17-23 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Here are the concepts for the day. Because every one of my classes has seemed to team up to kill my free time, I am going to combine the execution and score section for this week
Christian L. - Arizona Coyotes 3rd Jersey Concept
Score: 8/10 - I don't like the embossed crest. I think it looks blurry from a distance, but as I mentioned, this concept is quite the idea.
Aidan C. - Carolina Hurricanes Concept
Score: 6/10 - There aren't any TV numbers, but Aidan is on the right track.
Aidan C. - Pittsburgh Penguins Concept
Score: 5/10 - The crest on the black jersey is pixelated. This looks like it came from recoloring, but that is often hard to get around. Again, TV numbers are missing, but Aidan's two concepts bring a modern approach to jerseys in need so I can't wait to see what he has in store.
Caden P. - Kingdom of Isles Concept
Score: 6/10 - The nameplates and the shoulder patches look very pixelated. There are also some loose pixels in the number outlines. As I said above, the white jersey is money in this concept.
Gerard M. - Vancouver Canucks Concept
Score: 7/10 - Very good looking concepts! I love the return of Johnny Canuck.
Caleb F. - Boston Bruins Concept
Score: 7/10 - I would recommend angling the TV numbers with the striping as opposed to keeping them vertical. Otherwise, this is a solid concept.
Caleb F. - Pittsburgh Penguins Concept
Score: 7/10 - I like the wide numbers and the multi-colored Iceborn logo. The little details are what makes this concept a gem.
Bastian - Vancouver Canucks Concept
Score: 9/10 - As much as it hurts me as a Blackhawks fan, I give this concept my COTW nomination.
Stephen T. - Boston Bruins Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - I don't know how I feel about the white stripe down the pants. However, the TV number on the back left of both jerseys are missing. Normally they would be covered up by the front of the concepts, but since the TV numbers are higher on the sleeve, they wouldn't be hidden in this case.
David P. - Florida Panthers Concept
Score: 6/10 - David had some great ideas on this concept. It just seems a little plain to me.
Colin M. - Boston Bruins Concept
Design: Colin adds brown to the Bruins' color palette for the first time since 1945. When the 2010 Winter Classic gave our generation a taste of what brown looks like on a Bruins jersey, I hoped that we would see it on an alternate. Well, here it is! I like that the socks are yellow, like Boston's current home socks. I think that the unique look of bright socks with a dark uniform is a great look.
Score: 7/10 - At first, I thought this concept went overboard with brown, but every time I look at it, I like it more and more! The Bruins should definitely consider this as a future alternate jersey.
That's it for this week! Next time you all get to see my post, the Team Competition entries will be due so get to work! Also let me know in the comments what you think of the score & execution being combined. I plan on going back to the old format, but if the HJC readers prefer this way, I am willing to make the switch. Oh yeah once more, VOTE!
