Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you're all having a great week so far! I know I am as my Blackhawks finally finished off a game and got themselves into the win column. Minnesota and Colorado also had a super exciting game while Columbus seemed ready to take a lead in the series against the Penguins but blew it in the third. Dallas also with a big win to stay in their series! Hopefully the excitement continues tonight!

But before anything......Let's get to the concepts...
Buffalo Sabres Concept - Stephen T.
Rating: 6/10 - Interesting idea, but clearly this jersey style isn't ready for regular use.
Los Angeles Kings Concept - Stephen T.
Minnesota Wild Home Jersey Concept - Bastian
Hartford Whalers Concept - Bastian
Florida Panthers Alternate Jersey Concept - Ryan H.
Saskatoon Blades Concept - s2dio
Seattle Metropolitans Concept - s2dio
New Jersey Devils Alternate Jersey Concept - Christian L.
Montreal Canadiens "Modern Original 6" - J3
J3 modernizes the Canadiens which I'm sure most people see as a no-no. I think the thing that makes this work...for me...as an alternate... hypothetically... is the fact that the striping featured in the white part of the jersey resembles their current away jersey. So despite the jersey using a modern design, there's still huge contributions being made from designs of the past. The white hem is the real winner though. I just really love that look.
Carolina Hurricanes UNC Concept - TG
North Carolina Alternate Jersey I did last year...that won COTW I might add.... The idea for the concept itself though came from the Leave an Idea page. The sublimated argyle is pretty neat and the striping is reminiscent of another Carolina concept I did last year as well... It's like a concept mash-up! If the Hurricane's didn't go with the black and red Hurricane flag color scheme I don't see why this scheme wouldn't work. It just looks so good!
Well that's all for today! Don't forget to leave some comments for the concepts! And vote and come to Toronto and stuff......
