To clear things up about last Tuesday, it was just a unique situation and I decided to put a spin on it. I ended up making my vote one of the Panthers' jerseys and just gave a nod to the best Leafs concept out of the five.
Now that I got that out of the way, how about that outdoor game between the Wild and Blackhawks? I'm convinced that somewhere in the NHL rule book it says that the Chicago Blackhawks have to be in a signature event every year because they've done an outdoor game the past three years now. That must of happened at the last round of negotiations for a new contract or something. To honor that, I've come up with my Top three Chicago Blackhawks outdoor jerseys:

1. 2015 Winter Classic
Sorry but we currently don't have any new entries for the Chicago Express Contest. Check back tomorrow.
Finally, Please remember to vote for the COTW! It takes all of 10 seconds. That doesn't take up a ton of your TV show binge time.
COTW Feb 14-20 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Chicago Express entries (due Friday @ 10:59pm Eastern)
On to the Concepts!
Zeke Goldsmith- Windsor Spitfires
Negatives: That being said, your logos, name, and numbers are pixelated, making them blurry. Also, bring the name down a bit from the yoke.
Vaughn Roberts- CHI vs. MIN Stadium Series
Negatives: The Blackhawks' jersey looks more like a jersey from the Lithuanian National Hockey Team than the Chicago Blackhawks. The Green as the primary color with the wrist-to-wrist yoke and abstract stripe design doesn't work for a team such as the Blackhawks.
Lucas Daitchman- STL vs CHI Stadium Series
Negatives: Beside the fact that the Blackhawks are in another outdoor game (just kidding), the concept could be a little bit cleaner.
Matt Gomula- Ottawa Senators
Negatives: I can't find anything wrong with this set. Good job.
Overall: 9.5/10 COTW NOMINEE
Alan Su- San Jose Sharks (90's style)
Negatives: It would be nice to see the back of these jerseys. With the way the stripes flow from the right shoulder down to the left hip, it makes you want to see what the design does on the back.
Jarrett Tuttle- San Jose Sharks
Negatives: if you are going to gradient the numbers, please keep the numbers on the back and sleeves the at the same gradient level.
Ricky Mazella- Montreal Canadiens
Negatives: Using a Montreal Expos baseball jersey script for the front of a Canadiens' jersey just doesn't work here. You are using the Columbus Blue Jackets jersey template and recoloring it in the Canadiens' colors.
Well kids that's all the goodies I got for today. Don't forget to send in your Chicago Express concepts and VOTE for COTW. Have a good rest of the week everybody and I'll see you this time next week!
