Saturday: It's Final...not Finals!

The winner of the COTW vote for May 12-18 was Dylan N!


Full Results

I'm glad that Dylan's concept won this week. As I wrote about on a previous Saturday post, Dylan put a lot of work into this full presentation (find it on Behance) including actually having jerseys made! In my opinion this is the current front runner for COTY 2017.

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

 
The new COTW nominees for the week of May 19-25 have been posted on the side of the page. There were 5 concepts nominated and seconded and they are joined by the recent competition winner. For those logged into a Google account you will be able to place a vote up until noon ET on Friday.

The winner of the World Hockey Jersey Championship 2017 is Germany by JJ!


Final Results

The voter numbers were a little low, but I still found this competition to be fun. Perhaps a return next year is in order? Anyways, to get to the final vote we had three division winners. Take a look below at the results of those votes.

Going on right now is the 2017 HJC Open Logo Competition.Take your time on this one as you have until June 9 to get your entries in.

We had this entry come in yesterday for the competition.
Needless to say I think everyone here knows that this is not acceptable and is also considered theft around these parts. This is simply last year's logo (created by Brendan) with the year changed. The person who submitted this is either being stupid and trying to mess with us or really doesn't know better. Just wanted to bring this to everyone's attention that this kind of thing is wrong!

The eBay auctions that we have up for the Gilmour Blackhawks and Sabres jerseys both end tomorrow just after 10:30pm ET. If you're interested keep an eye on them and make sure to get a bid in. Both jerseys are in fantastic condition and if you're interested you may be able to get them at a great price.

Pittsburgh and Nashville in the Stanley Cup Final should be excellent! Nashville has a rockin' building and has had the "easier" time getting to the Final. Pittsburgh is trying to repeat as Cup Champs as they did in 1991 and 1992. This could also be the first Cup Champs repeat since the 1998 Red Wings. Everytime the Penguins make the Final, they've made it two years in a row (91, 92, 08, 09, 16, 17).

The way I see this series playing out will come down to which teams depth players will be able to execute better. Both teams have injuries that will cause line-up changes, so it will come down to the depth guys. Will they be able to take their game to the next level and push their team over the top? Whichever teams depth players are able to execute more will win the Stanley Cup.

My pick is Penguins in 7, but this really is a coin flip series.

As I try to do with every Cup Final, I visit the fantastic NHLuniforms.com and see what the jersey match-up for Game 1 would look like through the years.


This year's edition is my favourite. Let us know what yours is and why in the comments.

Lol. That HJC open logo is just a joke. No effort there to even make their own. People like that are just jerks
