So the Montreal Canadiens have started teasing their Winter Classic jersey in a series of tweets.

It would appear that the Habs will use the same crewneck style collar that the Bruins are using for the game which is great! As for the rest of the jersey, it appears we may get a white version of the club's original jersey. All the tweets mention this Friday's date, so it appears we'll have to wait a few days for the actual reveal.
All that is cool and all but all I care about is the Stadium Series jerseys at this point. We've seen Colorado's and it's whatever... The Wild jersey may have leaked yesterday so now we're only waiting on Chicago and Detroit. I was really hoping the sash design that was originally reported to be on Detroit's jersey would find its way onto the others but it doesn't appear that will happen.
I really want to get the Blackhawks Stadium Series jersey this year, because it seems like it will be better than the last Stadium Series jersey. I got last year's Winter Classic jersey because of course it was going to look good... But two years ago, I got all excited the Hawks would be in the Stadium Series, because it meant new jersey for me... then I saw it and got disappointed... don't do it to me again Blackhawks....
While I deal with all of that... you guys should vote and submit your contest entries!

The matchup shouldn't have anything to Now the designs both feel gimmicky which gives it a Stadium Series feel. The Maple Leafs have sublimated Leaves (LEAFS?!?) in their striping which seems like such a Stadium Series move, and the Canadiens have never had a sash. So basically, these are like Winter Classic/Stadium Series mashups and I'm not really a huge fan of either of them.
Mace Windu Jedi Alternate Jersey Concept - Star Wars Series - Ryan G.
Design wise, it's pretty bold...There's such a contrast between the colors that the yellow is popping out so hard. I don't hate it, I don't know if the colors have anything to do with Mace Windu. Google tells me he has a purple lightsaber so there's that. The bright colors kind of match the modern design, so I'm not toootally against the piping, although I still prefer no piping. The striping also seems a little thin for my taste, but maybe that's ok with such a bright yellow.
Toronto Blue Jays Hockey Jersey Concept - Ethan B.
Now, the design kind of comes out of nowhere it seems. I would think a Blue Jays jersey that uses their jersey striping would look really good. I don't know where this striping pattern came from. It doesn't look bad but it doesn't look right though because I'm expecting something different. Also, The jerseys use a lot of navy blue when the Blue Jays don't use that at all. There should be a lot more royal blue.
Also, why is the image so big, but the actual concepts and your ID take up so little of the space? Use all the space you can, man.

And there you have it, another fantastic Wednesday Post. Hope you all had a happy
