I could bore you with my predictions and my lengthy explanation on each one, but you probably wouldn't read it and I don't feel like typing it. I'll just sum up my take on the playoffs like this:
I'm a Blackhawks fan. I'm biased. Go Hawks. Detroit Sucks.
So Go Hawks! And Go Tampa Bay for the next couple of weeks!
And while we're on the subject, it's really cool to see some new faces in the playoffs. The Jets make their first appearance in the playoffs as well as Calgary making their return to postseason play. The Islanders had an impressive year and are hoping to make history one more time before leaving their stadium for good. The Kings have fallen and it feels pretty good. Yada yada yada ok let's do some HJC stuff!
And before we get to the real fun stuff, go vote. And get your Pairs Comp. entries in!

OK LET'S DO IT
Chicago Blackhawks Winter Classic Concept - Kevin G.
Man. City - Premier League Crossover Series - Phil B.
I also notice after a quick 'Gewgle' search that some past Man City uniforms feature some gradient designs. I think that would have been a very neat thing to work off of. I also notice that while the team has used some thick stripes on their uniforms, the striping here could be a little thinner. Or perhaps get rid of the colored cuffs/hem and use a 2 colored striping pattern. Just some thoughts.
Alaska Anchorage Seawolves - Ben S.
Bucci Overtime Challenge Jersey Concepts - David P.
David thinks that Buccigross could sell hockey jerseys to promote his non profit, and I don't think it's a bad idea. he's prepared two different options.
The first option is just Blackhawks jerseys with the Bucci logo on them. Definitely a cheaper option, but not the most creative or smartest in my opinion. The most eager to buy these would probably be Blackhawks fans. I'm sure there's a lot of fans out there who wouldn't want a jersey that looks like a Hawks jersey for fear of people mistaking them for Hawks fans. I personally don't see what's wrong with that ;)
Overall, great idea and I think Bucci should look into it.
First Set: 5/10
Second Set : 8/10
There you have it. A pretty short post today. This week in general will feature some shorter posts than usual with the number of concepts being small. Hopefully that's because everyone's working hard on their Pairs Entries. Hopefully you're all working on something that can be sent in after that so we have a lot more concepts to share with everyone!
