Saturday: Shark (and Penguin) Infested Waters

The winner of the COTW vote for May 13-19 was Matt M's Falcons to Tucson entry!


Full Results

Another competition entry takes the COTW vote. Well done Matt! Not to say that Matt's concept isn't fantastic, but I personally feel that he sometimes gets more love for a beautiful presentation than some other artists. Ryan C. or Scott G. may have a bit more straight forward approach with their presentation, but Matt adds a level of realism which pushes his concepts over the edge when it comes to COTW and Competition votes. Agree or disagree?

 
We know that Jordan will win this week's COTW vote. He owned the week with 9 of 11 nominations total. The three concepts that were seconded are in the vote. If you're signed into a Google account, that poll appears on the side of the page. You can see Jordan's nominated concepts by clicking the link in the poll or by going to the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK tab. Voting ends on Friday at noon Eastern time. Good luck Jordan?

The entry phase for the Atlanta Thrashers ReDesign has come to a close and now it's time to vote. Click the banner at the top of the page or go to the THRASHERS tab to do so. You can view the entries there and place your Top 5 vote. As a test, voting for the competition also appears on the side of the blog. You'll need a Google account to vote and voting ends on Friday at noon Eastern.

The next competition will be for HJC Open logos! Yes, it's getting close to that time of year again. Who's excited?!?!?!?!

Last Saturday we ran a poll to see which of the final four teams in the playoffs had the best throwback jersey. The choices were limited to the jerseys pictured below.

And here are the results:

Obviously the Penguins hope for similar results in the Stanley Cup Final. My vote went to the Sharks' throwback. The teal still holds up to this day. I think the look of the jersey fits the team's name so well, as do the colours. Those elements also suit the warmer climate of the Bay area. Then it's all topped off with some classic and effective style stripes. Having said that, if I ever saw one of those Lightning jerseys on sale I would pick it up if I could.

What made you vote the way you did? Is it because the Penguins currently have the attention of the hockey world and they are wearing the throwbacks doing it? Is that Lightning jersey so bad that it's good? Is that old Blues logo better than the current incarnation? Comments...below...we need them.

Our Thursday writer Bpoe96 (Brendan P.) has won this year's HJC Playoff Pool. There's no prize for winning the Playoff Pool, but he can certainly put it on his resume. His lead is such that no one is able to catch him. However the pool isn't done. You can still play for bragging rights. A lot of players like to compare how many points they got this year versus previous. If this is your first year here's your chance to set your benchmark. Picks are due once the puck drops for Game 1 on Monday at 8pm Eastern.

A lot of good presentation does me I've never made it past a COTQ vote I don't think. And for as as long as I've done this you'd think I'd have a bit more success. Haha oh well maybe this year!
