Ok, now onto the jersey concepts!
Long Island Edge - Daryl D.
Execution note, position the actual concept in the middle of the image or fill the blank space with some info about the jersey, team info, or maybe an ID.
Florida Panthers Alternate Jersey Concept - Patrick E.
In Patricks attempt at creating an alternate for the Cats, the blue and yellow swap roles as secondary team color and trim color. The primarily red and yellow look doesn't look bad, but at first glance I would immediately think of the Flames since the blue is so dark. I have no problem with yellow getting a bigger role in the Panther's color scheme, even if it's only on one jersey, but I'd still keep blue as a major color in the jersey, especially since the pants/gloves/helmet are blue. Striping is ok but I'd make the pants striping either match the jersey striping better or disappear.
Carolina Hurricanes Stadium Series Concept - Alan H.
2016 Winter Classic Concept - Boston Bruins vs Montreal Canadiens - David P.
The Bruins jersey, while historically accurate to their 1940's jerseys, bug me. The mismatch in the striping between the sleeves, hem, and socks is too much for me to handle.
The Canadiens jerseys is a recreation of the team's very first white jersey. They first wore it in 1935, but with BROWN pants...before eventually switching to blue pants. I think with the teams wearing brown gloves, why not let the Canadiens wear the retro pants? This may be the first time I've seen this particular Habs jersey being suggested for the game.
Since these are both recreations of former jerseys, it's hard to give creativity points, but the execution is good and this is probably a pretty good bet.... well maybe, I don't like that particular B's jerseys...
