During the draft we got to look at some jerseys. I'm sure you've all seen already. I'll put my small notes here. For Arizona I really do like the design, except I don't think it fits Arizona. Edmontons Alternate was a huge surprise and McDavid looked great in it. That orange is pretty. The other ones are pretty small changes. Colorado needs new jerseys. Montreal now looks even more ace, and I'm not even going to comment on the Ducks. Nothing really.
So since I'm vacation. I'll keep these probably shorter. I would have asked someone else to do it but a nice calm chillaxing post is something I wanted to do. So let's get these started.
HJC Open Round Robin entries (due TONIGHT @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW June 21-27 poll (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Philadelphia Flyers Concept - Andrew W.
Washington Capitals Concept - Dylan T.

Rating: This needs to happen!
Colorado Avalanche Concept - Lucas D.
Rating: 7/10 Upgrade from their current, but they need their own.
Utah Jazz Concept - Taylor R.
Los Angeles Kings Concept - Vaughn R.
Buffalo Sabres Concept - Colin M.
Last concept of the day is my hometown team. I'll start off by saying I like the logo choice. I'll go on to say that I don't think the jersey fits it. In theory people like to think NIKE would make the NHL a more modern look. I agree for the most part. I think original classic teams would stay but they would experiment with others. If they did choose this logo for the Sabres or something similar I would have to think the jersey would be more modern. Right now it's just basically their currents with no gray. In fact I think if NIKE took over and with this logo there should be more silver/gray. I would go back to the drawing board. I like the jersey design but just not with that logo. The alternate is a start but I think could be better. Just a B for the logo is kind of cutting it close with the Bruins. Double gold stripes I think could be something but I say a better logo is in need. Also I don't think a rounded yoke is necessary. Or a yoke at all. It screams classic but just needs a couple changes.
Hopefully when I return to the 716 next week I'll be back to normal. I'll quickly end off this post with saying T-ROY'S JAZZ CONCEPT IS MY NOMINATION!
I'm going to get some sleep now for a long day tomorrow again at the beach and golf time. See ya next week!
