It's nice to see the concept numbers getting back up to where they should be. Some of these writer challenges I've been seeing have been turning out pretty nice. I've seen the concepts that have been sent in for this week, and I've seen some of the best hand drawn concepts I've ever seen.
It's also nice to see higher concept numbers since this is considered a slow week around these parts now, at least when it comes to voting or competitions.
You've only got one vote this week and that's for the normal COTW, and you've also got another 5 days or so to get your Griffins entries in. So plenty of time to do both of those things, no excuses!
COTW Nov 8-14 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
GR Griffins Comp (Nov. 23rd @ 11:59 pm Eastern)
Now how about we get to the concepts... I wonder if you guys will notice a theme with today's concepts....
St. Johns IceCaps Concept - Ryan C.
Montreal Canadiens Alternate Jersey Concept - Lucas D.
these old beauties the Habs brought back a few seasons ago. I personally love those jerseys and they're pretty high on my wishlist, so it's nice to see someone attempt to modernize them.
I like the solid red Habs logo, probably the best look to go with this jersey, especially since it matches the striping, but perhaps you could make it white with a red outline, like the numbers. My only real gripe with the design is that the striping is very angular, while the striping from the original followed along the cut of the jersey.
I like where this is headed, it's just not there yet. Make the striping a little less blocky and you're golden.
Montreal Canadiens Concept - Ryan C.
2016 Winter Classic Concept - Montreal Canadiens VS. Boston Bruins - Jay S.
Montreal looks good in blue, and the vintage white swapping out the regular white in this blue version of their away jersey is pretty nifty. The shoulder patches are a very nice touch as well. Only thing that makes it better is a tie up collar, or even the crew neck sweater both teams will actually be wearing.
Boston's already worn a yellow jersey in an outdoor game so it was unlikely we'd see it again, which sucks because this is the direction I was hoping they'd go. Look at that brown babyyyyy. The double outline on the numbers is unnecessary, the numbers would look better just flat brown, no outlines. Again... tie up collar or crew neck would look great.
Montreal Canadiens Alternate Jersey Concept - Dylan N.
It's a weird Habs jersey, but I can't stop looking at it and I dig it... so COTW Nom....
Damn, it's been so long since I gave out a nomination... feels good, maybe I should do it more.
There it is... did you catch onto the theme? You got it!!! All hockey teams! Enjoy your week everyone!
