Thursday: Thanksgiving Prime Time

Hello guys! I hope my fellow Americans are all having a great Thanksgiving, but it's prime time for HJC here so let's just get right into it!

After a good amount of votes in the past weeks, it's calmed down a bit here with only the usual COTW vote. Just a simple click so go vote.
COTW Nov 15-21 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)


Straight into the concepts

Taylor R. - Colorado College
+Yellow is not an often used color for a primary color, it looks good here
+I like the font
+Simple and classy look
+I like how the two jerseys have the EXACT same design, just a color change above the stripes
-I'm not a huge fan of the logo but that isn't your fault 

Overall: Great look (9/10) and my COTW Nomination!


Ryan C. - Grand Rapids Griffins
+I like the logo choice, I find it better than their primary logo
+I'm not a huge fan of this gold color but I think it looks good on this set, especially with the red 
+Classy looking design, except...
-The hem stripes would look much better if they continued around the sides, I don't really understand the purpose of this

Overall: The concept looks really good, aside from the one thing mentioned, which  at least in my opinion brings it down a surprising amount (7.5/10)


Ryan C. - Florida Panthers
+Panthers are in need of a new set, I think this would be an improvement
+I like the dont used here for sure
+I like the angled striping on the arms and I like the pattern but...
-Still don't like the fact that it doesn't go around the sides. I think the arm striping on this is better than the last though.
-I think the shoulder patch would look better as the main logo, and the chest logo looks a bit big

Overall: Same problem as the last but I think it's a bit better (8/10)


Matt G. - Winnipeg Jets
+I think everyone's wanted an alternate from the Jets, some solid looking options for them here
+They all use the same base design with a different twist on them
+Every jersey and color scheme looks good, and they all work well. The "Jet Black" jersey is a great idea as well.
-On the bottom two jerseys, the white stroke on the name and numbers blends in too much, and the name becomes hard to read from a distance

Overall: Solid choices all around (8.5/10)


Lucas D. - Tampa Bay Lightning
+Black is something that I'd really like to see them being back, and so is gray/silver
+A more unique striping patten is used here as well
+The logo choice combines their current logo style with their history, great choice
-Unless it's just me, the number looks off center
-That TV number placement would make it off center, you'd need to cut the 9 off and put it on the other side just s but for it to be centered correctly

Overall: I'd like to see them go to this for sure (8/10)


Jay S - Newport Beach Hockey
+The color scheme looks great, reminds me of the SD Gulls
+The alternate is interesting and unique but especially for fantasy it works
+Simple yet effective striping
-The sock striping would be almost completely hidden most likely, put it towards the bottom 
-The yoke outline on the black jersey doesn't look very good, either add a yoke or get rid of that

Overall: Simple but nice looking design (8/10)


Brooks F. - Winkler Flyers
+The black and orange color scheme looks good
+As does the logo, it definitely says Flyers to me
+The striping is unique for sure, reminds me of the Leafs '14 classic jersey combined with the Red Wings regular away
-There is not enough orange on the white jersey, but I can understand that it wouldn't be easy to do

Overall: It's a good look for sure (8.5/10)

Sorry the post is so late guys, but I hope you enjoyed it anyways. Thanks for reading, have a good Thanksgiving for the rest of it for those who are celebrating it, and I'll see you guys next week!
