COTW June 16-22 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
The Penguins are the only team to have played in 3 outdoor games, including 2 Winter Classics, since 2008 when outdoor hockey games became an annual event in the NHL. The Flyers, who were rumored to play the Caps on New Year's Day would have been appearing in their third Winter Classic. Instead, the Blackhawks will join the Penguins in being the only team to play in 3 outdoor games since 2008. Speaking of the Penguins...
Daniel L. - Pittsburgh Penguins Concept
Score: 8/10 - I'll give this concept my COTW nomination. I don't think the Pittsburgh fans would object to this jersey either.
Joey F. - Cobalt Silver Kings NHA Concept
Score: 7/10 - I'd love to see a back to this concept, or at least see TV numbers to give me a taste of the number font.
Jeff C. - Delmarva Shorebirds MiLB Concept
Score: 6.5/10 - The arm striping is too generic for this concept. I'd love to see something that fits better with the yoke. Also the front & back hem piping don't match.
Nick L. - Carolina Hurricanes Concept
Score: 6/10 - Finish the back of this concept, and without further changes this concept would go from good to great.
Trent D. - Wheeling Nailers ECHL Concept
Score: 7/10 - Aside from a couple stray pixels here and there, this concept is spot on!
Taylor R. - Haileybury Comets NHA Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - I would only make one change: creme helmet to go with the creme jersey.
DR Design - Seattle Metropolitans Concept
Score: 6.5/10 - The crest looks way too big, and the green on the crest doesn't match the green jersey. I do love the old Metropolitans crest on the shoulders.
Well folks, it's officially the off-season so let the rumors & news begin! See you all next week!
