I can't really speak for the fans on this but going with such a simplified look such as the Old English E might have been a mistake. I do think you guys did save it a bit by putting the bear on the yokes, but overall it has a amateur feel to it. It's like you took a generic jersey and put a letter on the front of it for a rec league team and I think you guys could have done better. Overall: 6.75/10
Looking at the HJC Open, we are in the Semis stage right now and those designers need to get their stuff in by Tuesday at noon eastern time. Also, we have two votes this week. The COTW, as usual, and the COTW-June vote.
HJC Open Semi-Finals entries (due Tuesday @ noon ET)
COTW-June vote (ends Friday @ noon ET)
COTW July 7-13 vote (ends Friday @ noon ET)
Onto the concepts!
Anthony C- Toronto Maple Leafs
Negatives: This is a real bore when it comes to the Maple Leafs. It's not like we haven't seen something like this a million times on the website (refer back to my post with FIVE Maple Leaf concepts) and it would be nice to see some shake up. Also, the maple leaves on the shoulder's is a little excessive.
Anthony C- Vancouver Canucks
Negatives: Those pants are just strange and I get the idea but it just doesn't work like this. Maybe as a vertical stripe. Also, that logo looks huge on the front of the jersey. You might want to shrink it down.
Jordan R- Turu-Som Islanders
Overall: My only negative is the color choices you made. Kelly Green and Orange as the secondary colors? you could come up with a better combo.
Overall: 8.75/10 COTW NOMINEE!
Jordon R- Wonsan Cruisers
Negatives: My main negative has to do with the white jersey. While I like how you did the red jersey, the yoke on the white jersey looks a little too cluttered on a already complex striping design and removing that would be in the best interest.
Lucas D- New York Rangers
Negatives: The yoke with the striping really clutters the design and those TV numbers look really low on the jersey. Is this an old concept?
Lucas D- San Jose Sharks
Negatives: That white at the end just looks really strange to me.
Ryan C- Florida Panthers
Negatives: My only negative is that you cut off the chest stripe on the front and back instead of letting it overlap on the stitching like the current jerseys do. It looks strange and unfinished so please just connect it.
Ok everybody that's all I got this week. Have a good rest of the week and I'll see you guys next week.
