Howdy all! Hope you're all enjoying your week so far. I know I am.
I'm sure a lot of you saw but the St. Louis Blues unveiled their new jerseys yesterday and they returned to a classic pre-edge look, finally ditching the piping that a lot of people have been against for years.
It's a pretty simple look and nothing new, as the team has worn something very similar to this before, but it looks good. I think there's a few tweaks that could be made to make it look better but almost anything beats what they had been wearing. That's for sure.

Also, a few weeks back we saw everyone's second favorite Dylan win the HJC Open. Mr. Wonka was supposed to receive a mini banner with his name and the HJC Open logo printed on it but because of costs and availability Mr. Wonka managed to get himself a bigger banner! Let's take a look at the 3'x1.5' beauty!
Personally, I hope that there will be a video of the banner raising at the Wonka household. I think it'd be a fun time had by all.
Speaking of competitions... We still have a big one going on here, as well as our usual COTW Vote AND we're accepting writer applications for Tuesdays as I'll be taking over for Phil on Mondays.

So get on that!
I've decided no hat this week but I'll show one off next week, let's just get straight to the conecpts!
Adirondack Flames Alternate Jersey Concept - Zach W.
I'm assuming this is an alternate jersey concept as there's only one jersey. This looks like an attempt to blend two different jersey styles together. Ultra modern and classic. The top half of the jersey looks to replicate a classic Flames jersey with the diagonal arm striping while the bottom is... I don't know. It looks like it's two black side panels that link up across the hem. I'm not a fan of the look. I guess I just don't really get what Zach was going for. I don't think it works with the arm striping, but if the arm striping matched the stripes in these side panels I might jump on board. As I'm typing this the hem turns into a big black hem with hem striping that goes across and up at the sides. Still not a huge fan of it, but it's something new I'll give Zach that.
Los Angeles Kings Concept - TG
Dallas Stars Mascot Concept - Christian L.
Kind of hard to rate this as a jersey concept but I really like it so I'll give it something!
8/10 T Shirt Cannons
Hartford Whalers Alternate Jersey Concept - Steven G.
Rating: 8.5/10 - I'd still rather see some straight stripes...just a personal preference...
Well there it is folks. Tuesday. Done. Might as well go to bed. Nothing you do from now until the end of the night is going to beat reading your daily HJC post. Good night everyone!
