As was announced this week, the HJC Open will begin on July 12. Make sure you start preparing, because only your best concept will advance to the next round. Also, last week's COTW vote only had a handful of votes and almost ended in a tie. Get your votes in early before you forget!
COTW June 23-29 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Jamie R. - New York Islanders Alternate Concept
Score: 7/10 - The TV numbers have the same error that Ryan discussed in the Weekend Update. Read up on that, as it could be the difference between moving on and being eliminated in the HJC Open.
Coby S. - Buffalo Sabres Concept
Score: 6/10 - I like the creativity, but the red & black can stay in the past.
Christian L. - Stonecutters Concept
Score: 7/10 - I don't see the need for a difference shade of red in the crest. I would choose one or the other. Could a Springfield Isotopes concept be next?
Stephen T. - Team Austria Concept
Score: 7/10 - The Blackhawks style striping is sometimes overused on HJC concepts, but it looks good here. TV numbers are also missing.
Steven T. - Team Russia Concept
Score: 8/10 - This is definitely my favorite concept that Stephen has made. COTW Nomination.
Scott B. - Minnesota Wild Concept
Score: 7/5/10 - All of the numbers are a little bit small in my opinion, and I think that the hem and arm stripes are a little bit too far up the jerseys.
Scott B. - Nashville Predators Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - I'd make the crest & numbers a little larger. I think that would bump this jersey up to an 8.
Jake88 - Geneve Servette HC Concept
Score: 8/10 - Solid concept to end today's post.
That's all for this mid-week HJC post! Don't forget to vote for COTW. In fact, go ahead and do that now while you're thinking about it. See you next week!
