AHL LOGO TOURNAMENT ROUND 3
1.) Manitoba Moose vs. 8.) St. John's IceCaps
2.) Toronto Marlies vs. 7.) Rochester Americans
4.) Utica Comets vs. 14.) Rockford IceHogs
5.) Hartford Wolfpack vs. 6.) Milwaukee Admirals
Last week all the top seeds won besides Charlotte, who lossed by a tie breaker point to Rockford. (Tie Breaker point was just me asking someone who didn't vote last week). Anywho, the last Eight stand, who will come out on top? To be continued....
Now let's get some concepts in....
San Jose Barracuda - Alan H.
Arizona State Sun Devils - Ben S.
Lexington Men O'War - Brooks F.
Hershey Bears vs. Syracuse Crunch (Candy Series) - Jack S.
This concept is awesome. The idea of it anyway. If Syracuse could get Nestle in on it and allow them to use their branding I would be all over this game. To me, the Hershey uniforms are pretty decent but I need something else on the arms. Even just a white swoosh on the cuffs would work. It's just getting empty up there. And I think you should add the team's regular logos on the shoulders. Just so that they have something to show their regular branding. Syracuse I think should have a different font. I don't think it fits the logo at all. Also, if the striping was much thicker, then this would be a nice looking jersey. Right now it's just suffering from the font choice and how thin the stripes are. Those two fixes makes this game not only a cool looking game but a very funny and entertaining game. Also, this doesn't have anything to do with the jersey but I can't stand regular Hershey and Nestle Crunch bars anymore. I used to love them. Maybe it's just a growing up phase.
Boston Bruins - Jared L.
Tampa Palm Trees - Justin F.
Dallas Stars - Lucas D.
Anaheim Ducks Soccer Concept - Ricky M.
Rating: 8.2/10 for the dark.
7.2/10 as a whole.
Atlanta Thrashers - Ryan C.
We close off today's post with another defunct team, the Atlanta Thrashers. To me, this jersey is awesome. I can't really think of anything I don't like on it. My only thing I would change is the color of the numbers on the back of the white jersey. If that's dark blue with a gold trim I think we have an absolute winner. Part of me misses seeing the maroon used on the jersey design but I can live without it. I know some hate the yoke to sleeve design but it's something I've tried out before and I think could really work. Nice job here.
Rating: 9/10 and a COTW nomination from me.
