While it's been a week since the Penguins won their second Stanley Cup in two years, I never got to talk about the game and how great it was. Both goalies were brick walls and that game was tense down to the last seconds. Now, I do feel bad for the Preds fans because of that goal getting taken back. However, the Preds had almost two whole periods to score another so it's not like it was taken away at the last moment. Congrats to the Penguins on being the first team in the salary cap era to win back-to-back cups.
In college club hockey news, Ohio University's Hockey team has revealed it's 60th anniversary logo that will be worn on their new uniforms for this upcoming season.

It's a nice logo that includes the teams colors, the years, the actual stat of Ohio, and the four Murdoch Cups, the ACHA's DI championship trophy, that the team has won during their time in the ACHA. New uniforms will be revealed closer towards the season so be on a lookout for that. Who did they go with? I'm not sure. I do know that they've used OT the past few times so that could be the company they use but it's a surprise!
Guess what we did last night? We recorded the Podcast! It was a great time with the guys, as always, it was a great way for us writers to grow closer and get a few laughs. Look forward to the next one guys.
Finally, Get ready for the HJC Open and for the love of all that is hockey jerseys, DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! If you haven't heard the podcast by now or have learned from past experiences, it's a bad idea. Get them done before hand. They're all due by the 23rd.
COTW June 9-15 vote (ends Friday @ noon ET)
HJC Open Round Robin entries (due Friday @ noon ET)
Let's get ready to rumble! I mean, onto the concepts!
Anthony C- Los Angeles Kings
Negatives: The Main issues I have are with the primary jerseys. The piping around the yoke on both jerseys just don't work on either jersey. Also, using the silver as the secondary on the white wasn't the best choice. Change it to black and it'll look great.
Anthony C- Worcester Railers HC
Negatives: It's a simple design that's been seen before. Give them something that looks a little more unique. Also, make the collars a different color. The color choice isn't working well right now.
Anthony C- Winnipeg Jets
Negatives: Those red pants just don't work. Make them blue and everything will look beautiful. As for the alternate, there's a reason why the Jets got rid of that jersey style. Keep it in the past.
Burkus Circus- Boston Bruins
Negatives: WAIT ONE SECOND! Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Providence Bruins use this jersey design previously and have a design very similar to it? While I would let it slide, this is basically slapping the parent's club logo (vintage logo) on a jersey used by the parent and I just can't let that slide this time BC.
Burkus Circus- Buffalo Sabres
Negatives: The "B with Sword" logo might not have been the best choice for the primary. The "Buffalo" script with primary logo would be one hundred times better. Also, the back numbers look a little small.
Justin B- Edmonton Oilers
Negatives: All these jersey needs are the yoke piping and this set would be near perfect.
Overall: 9/10 COTW NOMINE
Justin B- Los Angeles Kings
Negatives: That accent of color in between the two large stripes just doesn't work. Get rid of it and this will look great.
Lucas D- Norfolk Admirals
Negatives: For some reason, the anchors on the shoulders look really big and really close to the collar.
Phil B- Germany
Negatives: I'm going to assume that you forgot to change the one end of that sleeve on the black jersey to black instead of keeping it red. Also, that white stripe is just random on that black jersey and makes no sense. The yellow numbers could also be really hard to distinguish on the striping. Finally, the mesh texture on the jerseys give the effect of a gradient which really throws everything off and ruins the overall presentation.
Ryan C- Boston Bruins
Negatives: Being honest here, this isn't something new that I've seen. Sure it looks really good but I feel like the Bruins' identity has been beaten to the ground and this just doesn't stand out enough to warrant any praise that you would get for things that you have done in the past. Sorry.
Well that's all I have for you guys today. Come back next week for more great concepts. Have a good week and see everybody here this time next week.
