I'll dive right in and remind everyone that the COTW votes must be placed by the normal time on Friday, but the Grand Rapid Griffins contest entries are due by Sunday! Get to work, or your concept may never get off paper and onto the ice.
Finally, have you ever wanted to become one of the writers for HJC? Well, a very rare opening has come up so this is your chance! Phil seems to have gotten a pretty cool job opportunity and I wish him the best, so get writing. If you've applied before and weren't selected, don't be discouraged! I wasn't picked on my first application, so you never know what might happen this time around.
COTW Aug 18-24 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
HJC Writer applications (due Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Grand Rapids Griffins Competition (ends August 31st)
Here are the concepts for today!
Alan H. - Renfrew Creamery Kings Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - Even the gloves match the striping pattern!
Christian L. - Minnesota Fighting Saints Logo Concept
Score: 8/10 - Overall, this is a very good logo. I like that nothing has drastically changed, but the cleaned up look gives the team a more fierce identity.
Zach W. - Gatineau Olympiques Concept
Score: 5/10 - Like they say, less is more.
Ricky M. - Carolina Hurricanes Concept
Score: 7/10 - Wow, that flag logo looks great on a white uniform!
Dallas O. - Arizona Coyotes Concept
Score: 6/10 - This crazy looking concept is brought down by the numbers and crest being a little bit too big. If Dallas shrunk those by 20-30%, this concept could be spot on!
TG - Kansas City Scouts Concept
Score: 9.5/10 - My only issue with this concept is that I think that too much space is wasted. I think that the space at the bottom of the image could have been allocated better. Nonetheless, this is my COTW nomination for the week! The concept above the dead space was more than enough to earn my vote.
