Hey guys, Caden here. So yeah. The amount of concepts being sent in is pretty low. We only have 5 for today's post. I know you may be busy with your Mallards concepts, cause we have a lot of those, but you should submit regular ones as well. I think I can speak on behalf of Ryan and the other writers when I say that any poor feedback on your concept wasn't meant to hurt your feelings, and it definitely wasn't meant to make you stop sending in concepts. Keep working and you will get better.

CPM Montreal Canadiens
Colin, the now 2-1 assistant GM for my fantasy team, "Brights" the Canadiens, adding a chest stripe to the away jersey. This series has been one of my favorites on HJC recently. I'm going to be sad when it ends. Hopefully we can get some of the same well executed concepts. I love the new style of the chest stripe. Also, I've always thought that the home and away jerseys should be the same design (where permitting). I don't like the solid red shoulder yoke on the white jersey, maybe add a blue stripe...
Dion San Jose Sharks
I've never gotten to review any of Dion's concepts in my posts, so welcome! I like the grey in the striping. Another thing I'm a fan of is the recolored logo. It looks really sharp! I really think that you should add a hem stripe, it will help differentiate it from the home jersey. A hint of orange would also be cool.
Jason NHL All Star Game
I never thought about this, but this is an amazing idea! If you do all of the same design jerseys, It would be a cool idea to have the logo from the team the player came from as the front crest, and delegate the all star logo to the shoulders. Not sure how that would fare on TV though. I wish that you would have done the black and green rumored to be on the 2015 All Star jerseys.
SUC Tampa Bay Lightning
I don't really have much to say about this particular concept. I love it as a fan jersey and maybe even a one off, but I reallllly never want to see it on the ice again in the 2010s. The 90s afforded designs like this, but I don't think it would work today. ALSO, the big point here, none of this is your design. You took an original jersey, put the current logo and block font onto it and called it quits. Maybe to work with this design you have to modernize it (somehow) and make it more original and creative.
F (If this jersey never existed and it was your original design, I would give you an A for creativity.)
SG-94 Edmonton Oilers
As the Edmonton Oilers Stanley Cup parade moves through downtown Edmonton, the millions of fans scream, as the team drives by, sporting their classy new alternate jerseys. Ok, so we might be a long way off from that, but I hope we aren't a long way off from this jersey (or something like it) being used by the Oilers. Orange is such a big part of their branding, I wish that they used it as a primary color for a jersey. The one thing I dislike is the shoulder yoke. Eww,
A- (without the yoke it would be an A, with a good looking yoke an A+)
So that's all for the post today! I hope you enjoyed. You guys should totally send in concepts. Who knows, it might be featured in NHL 15!
