So after a weekend of fun, let's get straight to business.
There's only three concepts in the COTW vote this week and I suggest you vote. Maybe for a certain Chicago Blackhawks concept but don't let me sway your vote... or maybe do........
Also, we have a new competition this week in the form of a CWHL ReDesign. So get your entries (And Votes) in by Friday night!
COTW Nov 17-22 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
CWHL ReDesign entries (due Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
What? You want concepts? Ok, here you go!
Phoenix Roadrunners Concept - Mitch B.
I'm not a fan of the stripes on the arms, they look off center and the thickness isn't uniform throughout the stripes. I also don't like colored side panels, but that's just me. There's an NHL shield on the collar insert, which should be gone unless this is intended to be an NHL concept. The name and number on the back are way too big. Scale those down and put some TV numbers on the sleeves. I also feel that overall, the jersey is too dark, especially the darker silver name and numbers on the back.
Peterborough Petes Concept - Zach W.
Quad City Mallards Alternate Jersey Concept - Joey F.
Anyway... As for Joey's jersey, it reminds me too much of a boring "fashion" jersey that the NHL had on sale at one point. It looks a lot like a basic practice jersey. I think this jersey could be spiced up quite a bit. Plus, the Mallards shoulder patch is upside down on the back of the jersey and the inside of the jersey as seen on the front of the jersey is white. I think you've got a good foundation for something here, but it's not done yet. Some orange would be nice to see.
Mighty Mach One - United States Air Force Academy Squadron Design Series - Rocky Mountain Concepts
Team Canada Concept - Will S.
Nashville Predators Alternate Jersey Concept - Christian L.
Hampton Roads Rhinos Concept - Brights Series - Colin M.
As for the concept itself, for those that don't know, the Rhinos were a proposed team back in the late 90's before the Whalers moved to Carolina. The color scheme looks like a mix of the Kings purple era and the Sharks minus the orange. The logo is pretty nice. I like seeing custom logos on the this site. I don't care for the jersey design very much but it goes with the logo nicely, so it works. I think the shoulder patches are too close to the collar, definitely move those down towards the end of the yoke.
Rating: 8/10 and once again Congrats Colin!!!
There you have it! The end of Colin's series and the end of Monday's post. Definitely check back everyday this week for new concepts as well as CWHL ReDesign entries, which hey... totally send some in. And while you're doing that, Vote Vote Vote for COTW COTW COTW!!!
