That female voice in the background was my girlfriend. You see, her leg is in a knee immobilizer due to her tearing MPFL(The muscle attach to the knee cap). I was in the next room with the door closed and I told her before I started the podcast "Please don't make any loud noises or do anything to hurt yourself because I can't help you until this is over." That lasted about 15 minutes. She dropped her phone on the floor while she was texting. So, disregard that female voice unless you want to picture a woman in a knee immobilizer struggling to get out of a rocking recliner to get her phone while you're listening to it. By the way, she feels bad for being the background noise.
Getting back on track, we have the HJC playoff pool that ends TOMORROW when the pucks drop so get your picks in. Also, like usual, we have the COTW and COTW-March vote due by Friday so get on that as well.
COTW-March vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pmn Eastern)
COTW Apr 3-9 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
2016 HJC Playoff Pool Quarterfinal picks (ends Wednesday @ 7:00pm Eastern)
Hi ho concepts, away!
Bpoe96- Columbus Blue Jackets
Negatives: Your TV numbers aren't correct. while the 1 is over far enough, you don't have any of the 9 on that same side. The light blue replacing the silver was an interesting idea, but it just doesn't work here. the different colored bottoms of the jersey and sleeves in the light blue just look off. Also, just make the dark blue on the white jersey a traditional yoke. It looks so busy with the whole top of the arms covered all the way to the sleeve stripes. Also, replace the light blue sleeve cuffs with dark blue on the white and dark blue jersey and give the light blue a much more minor role and this jersey would be solid.
Bpoe96- Montreal Canadiens
Negatives: The placement of the TV numbers on the jersey look awkward to me. the fact that they are partly on one stripe makes it look unfinished. Add the numbers to the middle of the stripping or move the stripping down slightly.
Jay Schreyer- Augsburg Panthers
Negatives: The number font is a little strange to me. Overall, this jersey set is pretty traditional and looks similar to St. Louis and New Jersey.
John Visaggio- Buffalo Sabres 3rd
Negatives: The TV numbers are wrong. See our tutorials page to learn about using the "1" on a sleeve. You also have the old reebok logo on the jersey. But really, this is just a vintage sabres jersey recolored with white in the stripes.
Lucas Daitchman- Colorado Avalanche
Negatives: That end-to-end yoke just doesn't work on this jersey. Leave it as a yoke. Also, bring back the alternate logo on the jersey.
Ryan Christensen- San Jose Sharks
Negatives: Make the numbers on the white jersey a different color. I don't care what color just don't make them white with a dark outline because that can be hard to see even with the waist stripe.
Overall: 8/10 COTW NOMINEE
Tyler Meli-Skewis- Colorado Avalanche
Negatives: Why are your sleeve numbers so high up and uneven? also, move the crest logo up slightly.
Well those are all the concepts for this Tuesday everybody. Don't forget to enter in the Playoff Pool, vote for the COTW, listen to the HJC Podcast, and tell Phil, our Wednesday writer, what you hate about the New York Islanders tomorrow in the comments section.
Before I go I'd like to say to everybody who did the Podcast that it was fun and, again, my girlfriend is sorry for all the noise in the background. Have a good week and I'll see you all this time next week.
