Saturday: The Dark Abyss That Is Summer

It feels like hockey is so far away and like it has been forever since a game has been played. If you're a baseball fan, at least you have that. For the rest of us we could always watch paint dry!


The winner of the COTW-July vote was Lucas!

Full Results

Lucas is on quite a roll. This Jets concept of his is the first concept into the 3rd Quarter Vote, which will be held in October. Good luck Lucas and well done.

------------------------------------------------

The winner of the COTW vote for July 29 - August 4 was Lucas.


Full Results

This is Lucas' 3rd COTW win in a row! One more would tie the record streak of 4 set by Christian L. last year. This also may be the first time in HJC history that the same artist has won back-to-back with a concept for the same team. Lucas won last week's COTW with a Jets concept.

------------------------------------------------

The winner of the 365 Club Competition was Brooks F!

With the win Brooks' Barons concept set moves into this week's COTW vote. As we have seen all year, competition winners have done quite well when it comes to the weekly votes.

Last week I asked you guys what the better Heritage Classic jersey was...

Winnipeg's ran away with this one by a vote count of 55-6. I thought it would be closer, but I think I should have phrased the question differently. I should have asked which jersey was better overall and I think Edmonton would have received at least a few more votes.

The recent reveal of the Winter Classic logo has sparked this week's poll. The results of which will be revealed next Saturday.

HJC is looking for someone to write on Tuesdays. We've had a writer's position open up and we've shuffled around the roster. The result is the Tuesday slot. If you're interested, click the banner, read the page, and submit your mock post. Applications are being accepted up until Friday at noon Eastern.

- If the Blues wore their shade of light blue for the Winter Classic, would a blue vs black match-up work?

- I'm loving Antoine Bibeau's (Toronto Marlies) mask for the upcoming Marlies season.

- $150 plus tax (CAD$) for a blank World Cup of Hockey jersey. This is an easy pass for me, no matter what happens in the tournament! To sound like an old guy, I remember when jerseys were $99 each with quality patches and good durability. Hmmm, I wonder why the Chinese knockoff jerseys are so popular?

- I don't get any money for mentioning this, but the best place on the internet to get a jersey is SportsK.com. They also have great deals in the summer! Kings' Stadium Series jersey $50 as of this posting. Habs' Winter Classic $75. Bruins Winter Classic $85. All legit. I've bought from them several times.
