Before we get to the main course of today's meal, I need to give you guys the small side salad without any type of dressing. Vote for the dang COTW. Takes two minutes. If I have time to do it then so do you.
HJC Open entries (due Tuesday @ 5pm Eastern)
HJC Open Quarters Final vote (ends Friday @ noon Eastern)
COTW June 24-30 vote (ends Friday @ noon Eastern)
Onto the Concepts!
Brooks Freeman- Windsor Spitfires
Negatives: Those sleeve numbers look really cramped on the arms of the primary set. Also, perhaps something could be done on the pants? nothing too crazy though.
Jay Schreyer- Detroit Red Wings
Negatives: The sleeve stripes would look better moved down a bit. Also, as much as I like the subtle Adidas branding, it would be nice to see some type of special memorial patch or something to commemorate all the great Red Wings players of the past.
Jay Schreyer- Toronto Maple Leafs
Negatives: There's a reason why the Leafs got rid of that design from the 70's and early 80's. It didn't work then and still doesn't work today.
Jordan Roberts- Detroit Vipers
Negatives: The sleeve striping isn't my favorite but it flows with the whole jersey.
Overall: 9/10 COTW NOMINEE
Jordan Roberts, Grand Rapids Owls
Negatives: The logo looks a little strange and not really like an Owl. It looks more like a Pheasant.
Jordan Roberts- Houston Aeros
Negatives: Once again, those sleeves just aren't working and why did you make on end of the throwback's hem to be curved to a point while the other is just straight?
Ryan Christensen- Toronto Maple Leafs
Negatives: It just looks a little too plain and familiar.
Well That's all the time I have this week. Remember, get to voting and and I'll see yinz next week. Now I'm going to hand it off to Phil n'at.
