Couple cool things happened in the past day so let's take a look shall we?
First, the San Diego Gulls jerseys were leaked in an NHL 16 trailer yesterday. I've been more excited for the EASHL trailers than this jersey and this just shows why. I wasn't expecting anything great from San Diego but I wasn't expecting anything this ugly either. It's like a weird Ducks/Flames hybrid template with so much of that electric blue color.

Sticking with the AHL, the St. John's IceCaps showed off their new duds. They went from Jets clones to Canadiens clones. This team just can't cut the cord. Not saying it's a bad design, it's not, it looks good. It's just not very interesting. Was really hoping for a unique jersey or two.

And now something else involving the Canadiens. The 2016 Winter Classic logo was unveiled today, along with the logos that we can assume will grace the front of the teams' jerseys on New Years Day.
Well that's enough cool news. But we have something cooler for you anyway. Voting for the HJC Open Final!!! I think this is going to be a close one. Both Colin and Christian sent in strong entries for the final. I just voted while typing this sentence, so there's no excuse for you not to vote. It's that easy.
You know while you're voting for the Open you can vote for the COTW as well? It's just as easy! Poll's on the side of the page!
HJC Open Final entries (due Tuesday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW July 19-25 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Enough of my nonsense! Concept Time!
Tulsa Oilers Concept - Brooks F.
Grand Rapids Griffins Alternate Jersey Concept - Ryan C.
2017 Winter Classic Concept - Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks - Vaughn R - Willian B.
Jerseys - Toronto's jersey is a remake of the Toronto Arenas' 1918-19 jersey and it looks great. It's a shame there's no leaf on the shoulders or anything but I'm sure they could go on the epuipment...that we can't see... Vancouver's jersey is just a color swap of their Millionaires jersey with TV numbers and a shoulder patch. Ditch the TV Numbers and the Patch and it's pretty great.
R&R Connection Concept - Achievement Hunter - BPoe96
There you go. Small but good group of concepts today! Don't forget to go vote for the COTW and Open Finals! And leave some comments or COTW Noms!
