Saturday: Winter's Sixteen Sweaters

The winner of the COTW vote for the week of February 14-20 was Dylan N's Rangers concept!


Full Results
Dylan N. (NYR) - 26
Brooks F. (ONT) - 14
Lucas D. (LA) - 11

Another competition entry that is strong enough to move on and win a COTW vote. It just shows how important a good competition entry is if you have Concept of the Year hopes. It also raises the question, are the comp winning entries that much stronger than the weekly entries, or are they building off of the momentum from recently winning a competition?

 
The COTW nominees for the week of February 21-27 have been posted. Place your vote in the black poll on the side of the page. You can see the concepts that were nominated by clicking the link in the poll or by going to the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK tab. Voting ends on Friday at 11:59pm Eastern.

I thought a team with a double blue colour scheme would inspire you to create. Unfortunately we only received eight entries into the Chicago Express ReDesign Competition. Well, for those eight this is a good chance to move into a COTW vote.

The vote for the Express Comp will be a Top 3 vote, instead of our traditional Top 5. Click the banner at the top of the page to see the entries or go to the CHICAGO EXPRESS tab. Voting can also be done there and it will end on Friday at 10:59pm Eastern.

Last week we had a poll asking you guys what the best Stadium Series jersey has been to date. Here are the results...
 

I'm very surprised that Detroit's sweater that they will wear tonight took top spot. Not to say that it is the worst Stadium Series sweater (Rangers, I'm looking at you!), but I am surprised to see it at the top.
My top choice was Minnesota's from this year with Pittsburgh's and LA's from 2014 getting consideration as well.

We've done Stadium Series jerseys, now lets do Winter Classic jerseys. You can see where this is headed, can't you? There have been 16 Winter Classic jerseys to date. Some have been direct throwbacks and many have been fauxbacks. Lets find out which one is the best. The poll is posted below and on the side of the page. The poll ends on Friday at 11:59pm Eastern.

Ok, so the Chicago Express competition wasn't a hit. It's okay, I mean Led Zeppelin didn't write tunes everybody liked. They left that to the Bee Gees. (Thank you Wayne's World). So give me a team that you guys want to ReDesign. Or perhaps there's a team that you want to design a third jersey for? Let me know in the comments. The best answer will inspire the next competition. My choice would be a competition for a new 3rd jersey for the Sabres. Let me know...

COTW Feb 21-27 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Chicago Express Top 3 vote (ends Friday @ 10:59pm Eastern)
Winter Classic Best Jersey Vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)

Maple Leafs 2016 jerseys comp.

JJ Anderes said...

Two suggestions for competitions...

1. Atlanta Thrashers Redesign
2. 2017 Winter Classic concepts with a logo and jersey division for each. Even though the location hasn't been named yet, it'll be fun to see what artists come up with.

NY Islanders Black 3rd Jersey Redesign

And yeah, I like the 2017 Winter Classic idea.

Idea for a competition:
A redesign of the first jersey you ever did. It would be a side-by-side of your first ever concept and an updated version of it. It would be cool to see how much people have improved from their beginnings.

Ryan C. said...

I like the 3rd jersey idea. Any NHL or AHL team would be cool...

Vaughn Roberts said...

Yeah I like Zeke's idea

I'll 2nd Zeke's

Ben Shaffer said...

Third for Zeke's.

Competition Ideas:
1. We all love Hartford's identity but what if they came back and needed a new MODERN look?
2. The Blackhawks decide to hear the First Nation folks who take offense to their mascot so they REBRAND. What would a historic team like Chicago look like under an entirely new brand?
3. Seattle gets a team and it's not the Metropolitans. Home & Away jersey.
4. Buffaslug returns. Make it great.
5. St. John Sea Dogs

Picture this: the Roller Hockey International is revived by the NHL to make money, I mean, give their players more playing time in a different way. We could use old names or new names.

Zekes idea would be really fun. I still have my first concept and it could use more than a few touch ups.
