Team PEI Concepts (By: Noah B.)


Current look- Despite not having a provincial pro hockey team, the curling teams for the Scotties and Tim Hortons Brier usually wear green, white and black, similar to Saskatchewan!

While I'm a bit concerned at how similar these jerseys look to a couple of European IIHF jerseys (namely Hungary and Belarus), there's a lot to like here. The rounded font goes nicely with the curves of the PEI provincial crest, and adds a level of uniqueness. The pattern on the hem is taken from the boarder of the PEI flag, and it looks fantastic here. I especially like the way the pattern is done between the home and road. My problems with this concept almost entirely have to do with the red jersey. The lack of green, while I appreciate trying to avoid the Christmas colour scheme problem, there could stand to be more green on the yoke or even green pants?! One minor change I would put in almost immediately would be a green collar to stand out on the red yoke. 

Overall, a solid look for a province with lots of character and unique details, but some improvements would really make this concept shine. 9/10

As with Team Nova Scotia, here is my ideal Team PEI, obviously I had to take liberties, so I'm allowing players born in PEI who grew up else where and vice versa, namely Rick Vaive and Steve Ott.

GM- Doug Maclean (Summerside)
Coach- Gerard Gallant (Summerside)

C- Steve Ott (Summerside), Brad Richards (Murray Harbour), Josh Currie (Charlottetown)
RW- Rick Vaive (Charlottetown), Al MacAdam (Morell)
LW- Brett Gallant (Summerside), Ross Johnston (Charlottetown)
D- Kent Paynter (Summerside), Nathan McIver (Summerside), Bob Stewart (Charlottetown), Brandon Gormley (Murray River), Mark Flood (Charlottetown)
G- Drew Macintyre (Charlottetown), Gary Simmons (Charlottetown)

Vancouver Canucks Concept (By: TC Moore) 


I'm not sure if everyone has the same love of the Skate on a Plate logo that I do, and that entire colour scheme as a whole, but this concept is one of the best modern integrations of this colour scheme I've seen in a white. The striping is simple enough, and has the subtle angles necessary to give the Vs everyone love. The pants are probably the best place for an outright V to be on the kit, and this looks great. I am surprised, I normally wouldn't like this colour scheme on other era's logos, but here the Johnny Canuck V loos fantastic. The font here, I'm not sure if I prefer it to the Canucks' current typeface, but it's far from bad. My one issue comes on the gloves, I think lis is more with the red and yellow on the gloves, and solid off-black gloves with subtle hints of red and yellow would look better.

Overall, this alternate would make for a fantastic fauxback, and something worth considering as the Canucks unveil an alternate next season and the already known popularity after the Canucks wore the actual 90s jerseys as throwbacks a few seasons ago. 9.5/10 COTW Nom from me!
