Last year at this time I believe we had 3 Buffalo sports figures announce something cancer related, so I'll take crime issues over something life threatening, but there is never a dull moment in Buffalo sports. Always something happening. There's never a dull moment on HJC though either. So we should get directly to the concepts. While you are here for the day take a moment and vote for the COTY and COTW on the right of the page. Then tomorrow you can come back and vote for the HJC Open concepts!

Arizona Coyotes Concept -
Powell River Kings Concept - Vaughn R.
Vaughn continues his BCHL series. Moving on to the Powell River Kings. Very interesting design choice here. I do have a problem with the the way it's executed. For instance on all three jerseys the striping from hem to cuff are all different. You have a very slim stripe between the colors on the hem but on the arm cuff it becomes thicker. That's how it should be for the hem. I think it should match in size all the way around. For the home jersey there is a decent amount of yellow but on the road the yellow is back to just a trim color. I think yellow should be in place of the white and then have white as that trim accent color. I like the yellow as a third but instead of making it brighter with a yellow yoke have a black or green yoke to balance out the colors. I think these jerseys need a little bit more time in the design process. Looking at color balance and consistency is huge. When making a jersey make sure your design goes well together. From the colors, yoke, arm striping, hem, numbering, letters and logos. If you look and notice you have different striping styles then maybe it's not going in the right direction. Just my two cents. Let me know if you agree.
Home and Road: 6.9/10
NHL EXPANSION TEASER
If you have not been following Christians thread on CCSL Forums then I suggest you don't. Not because it's bad but if you haven't seen it, it's worth the wait to have it unveiled here. Just wait and see because he's done a very great job.
This Tuesday is down the drain. Did you agree with my opinions? Do you think I should stop voicing my opinion because you think it's stupid? Let the public know in the comments! Have a nice Tuesday everyone! I'll be back next week!
