I'm sure you've read on the site, or perhaps the HJC Twitter, that the votes this week, and the next few weeks, are very important, as we're getting very close to naming the 2013 Concept of the Year! So if you're going to vote, which you are, FOR SURE do it these next few weeks!
4th Quarter Vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW Jan 6-12 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
AHL Stadium Series Entries (Due Friday, January 17, 2014 @ 11:59pm Eastern)
And now onto our normal daily concepts!
LA Stadium Series Concept - Ricky M.
Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg (KHL) Concept - Robb C.
New York Rangers Concept - Stephen T.
Execution error, the TV numbers are backwards. As is, the back reads "18" but the arms read "81"
Calgary Flames Third Jersey - TG
Calgary Flames Third Jersey Concept - Avi S.
Rating: 7/10 - Not as much of a concept as it is a "tweak" but the tweaks made improve the jersey.
Boston Bruins Third Jersey Concept - Avi S.
Rating: 8/10 - Again, more of a tweak and modernization but it just looks so good. I hope the actual Bruins make a move like this soon.
Vancouver Giants Concept - Stephen T.
Delaware Pioneers Concept - Jordan R.
The name and the logo have a old timey feel to it, so why make it all swoopy and modern like a lot of newer teams try. The two jerseyes on the left are really good. I like the colored cuffs. The jerseys on the right are alright as well. I prefer the gray one as an alternate. But I would love to see a white version of the left jerseys and just use those three. (Red, Blue, White)
Hamilton Steelheads 3rd (TV Show - PowerPlay) - Will S.
I came across Will's blog where he explains how he made the jersey, so click on this to go check that out.
I like the logo here better than the one on the jerseys in the show. It reminds me of the Hellfish from the Simpsons. Like I said the last time I got a homemade concept on the blog, I think it's so neat when people put in the time and effort to make a jersey. I'd love to be able to do that!
Great work here Will!
I don't know how to rate this, but I want to give it a COTW nom if that's cool with you Ryan!
Well that's it for today, I realize that I said "short and quick post" originally but i got into it and lost myself in the post. So, oh well. Let me know what you guys think of today's concepts in the comments below!
