Sunday: Surprise!

Hi everybody. Yes, we at HJC have a big surprise for all of you. That surprise is...

NEW HJC PODCAST!

A new podcast for the upcoming season is in the works right now so get your questions ready for us and we'll keep you guys updated on it. But most importantly, GET PUMPED!

New competition! Personally, I think this is long overdue but get ready to redesign the Sens uniform sets. I can't tell you how much I think that they need new jerseys. Ever since they got rid of the side profile with their inaugural jersey set, their jerseys have just gone down hill in my opinion. Oh, and don't forget about the COTW.

Speaking of concept design, I made a flat goalie mask template for anybody who wants to use it. it'll be up on the templates page shortly.



COTW Sept 9-15 vote (ends Friday @ noon Eastern)
Ottawa Senators ReDesign entries (due by Friday @ noon Eastern)



Onto the Concepts!

Lucas Daitchman: Colorado Avalanche
Positives: I've really been digging your de-edge collection here and this concept is a nice spin on the classic Avalanche jersey. The unique yoke gives hearkens back to the original jersey while  being able to tell that this is a whole new jersey set at the same time. Also, those angled stripes on the sleeves look really good with the yoke.
Negatives: It would be nice to see the classic arched nameplate on the back of this as well as the classic numbers.
Overall: 8.75/10 COTW NOMINEE

Lucas Daitchman- Vancouver Canucks 
Positives: Yes more angle stripes! those large stripes on the arms look beautiful and the chest stripe works well. Also, the Alternate "V" logo looks really good.
Negatives: The current logo would also look really nice on the front of this jersey instead of having to revert back to the original logo logo. Also, you could live without that chest stripe and move it to the bottom of the jersey instead.
Overall: 8.5/10

Phil Beck- New York Islanders 
Positives: The addition of the orange and blue stripes on the sleeves looks really good on this jersey. I've always felt that the alternate logo could use a bit more color.
Negatives: Phil, I'm going to let this slide but usually I wouldn't let the nameplate pass as an ID. Also, get rid of that chest striping. You're almost going in the direction of the last black alternate jersey they had (and we all know how that went over.)
Overall: 8/10

Vaughn Roberts- 2016 Heritage Classic 
Positives: Both jersey look really good overall Vaughn. that classic Oilers logo on the current uniform looks really good, and I must say that the red jersey really works well for the Jets.
Negatives: That numbering on the Oilers looks so out of place for the time period you're going for. Also, those numbers look awkward being really big on the back of both jerseys
Overall: 8.5/10

Vaughn Roberts- 2016 Heritage Classic College Game (Alberta Vs. Manitoba) 
Positives: out of the two jersey sets I'd say that Alberta's has more of the classic look that you would most likely see at the Heritage Classic. The simple "A" on the front looks beautiful with the simple stripes. As for the Manitoba jersey, I really like that it has that minimalist approach with with three thin stripes on the white jersey.
Negatives: It would have been nice to see the Alberta jersey to have the Golden bear logo on the shoulder of the jersey and have some type of vintage style logo on the front of the Manitoba jersey as well.
Overall: 8.25/10

Well that's all the time I have for you today guys. I'm going to hand the mic over to Jets for the Monday post. Have a good week and I'll see you guys next week.

YAY!!! I GET TO ASK MORE ANNOYING QUESTIONS!!!

1: Do you think the NHL Stadium Series should go back to having multiple games per season (like with the first couple years) or stay with just one (like more recent years)?
2: Which team improved the most (Jersey wise) this year: LA, Florida, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Winnipeg, or Philadelphia (think that's everyone..)?
3: If Europe wins the WCH in the split jerseys, so you think they could be seen more as "revolutionary" or "good" than just "ugly" (sorta like Canadiens away, relatively boring, but respected because of Stanley Cup wins)?

GO JACKETS!!! GO MONSTERS!!! GO BUCKS!!!

PODCAST QUESTIONS!

1. Where should the NHL host the next Winter Classic after St. Louis?
2. Out of all the Original Six teams, which one has the WORST set of uniforms?
3. (I know I asked this before the last podcast, but I don't remember it getting answered so I'm bringing it up again.)
Name a team who should make their current alternate jersey their new home uniform.
