Detroit's for the most part is a nice modern looking jersey. I think the biggest downfalls are the massive TV numbers and I think the white sleeves start up a little too high up on the jersey. If they were lower and the numbers were a size that's bearable I think this jersey could and should be the new alternate, but as it stands I wouldn't want them to promote it. The changes would need to be made.
Chicago's I think again, is decent. I think the base design is pretty awesome. I think the collar and the way the red stripe stops on the arms throws me off. If they just had a white outline of the 'C' patch instead of it just stopping it would look better. The stars are odd to see with Chicago Blackhawks and I understand why they are there but I personally would like to see them eliminated OR all the way around the collar. Just being on one half irks me.

Providence Bruins Concept - Ryan C.
Ryan closes off today with a Winter Classic inspired Providence set. The home jersey, I like. I think it needs a shoulder patch to make it less empty but it's a good jersey and it would be nice to see. The white jersey on the other hand I think is almost there. I like what you did with the sleeves, however, the hem stripes could be worked with. The thin stripes don't do much and how high up they are a bit weird. My solution to this would be just to have two or one black stripe to match the rest of the set.
Another Tuesday in the books! I hope everyone has a splendid Thanksgiving (for you Americans) and for all of you Canadians out there I hope you have a splendid breakfast this week. See all y'all next week!
