Monday: HJC Prime Time

Hey there HJC readers. I did a bad thing and the post is a couple hours late. Long story short, I couldn't be home today to write the post and I was unable to let Ryan know earlier. I apologize for the lateness and the result is an HJC post in prime time...at least in the eastern time zone.

Or... Maybe I'm on strike because I lost in the COTY Finals again. Yeah that's it. I'm on strike and will not be writing the post. Nah, I couldn't do that. Christian, congratulations! You'd been sending in different versions of your Nordiques concept as you continued to work on it and it paid off as it's been voted the best concept of the year! It was cool to see the project grow and change for the better!

That being said, that's two years in a row I've lost in the finals and its apparent I need to step my game up. To do that, I'm going to need people to vote for COTW and there's two votes this week for that.

COTW Jan. 25 - 31 vote (ends Friday at 11:59 pm Eastern)
COTW Feb 1 - 7 vote (ends Friday at 11:59 pm Eastern)
World Cup Top 3 Teams vote (ends Friday at 11:59 Eastern)

Also, I have two concepts in the COTW vote and one of them is the wrong concept. The blue and neon green concept is correct and was voted in but the blue and red concept was not. This concept, with the neon stripes on the arms should have been in its place. I'm glad that's the case as of the 4 All Star Game concepts I did, the blue/red/neon one is my favorite, so I'm glad it was appreciated here too. Who knows, maybe one of these ASG concepts will be seen again next January for COTY. ;)

First time in a couple weeks where contest entries don't need to be posted, so I guess we can jump right to the daily concepts!

Arizona Coyotes Alternate Jersey Concept -  Ryan C.
Very paint bucket-y concept here. Get rid of the side panels and only have the top of the sleeves brick red. Or just get rid of the black on the front and back. The arm striping is really bold and basic. The wordmark and coyote logo being used makes each logo smaller than it could be. I like the look of this wordmark, but I would rather see the coyote logo. Technically, the wrong CCM logo was used, ONLY the letters CCM should be used, but I actually like the look of this logo being used.

Rating: 5.75/10

Milwaukee Admirals Alternate Jersey Concept - Kaner88
If a jersey like this was used, it'd probably become an instant fan favorite. Their current jerseys are kinda meh,even if they have a nice color scheme. I think the baby blue apron stripes are a bit much. The hem striping should be thicker to match the arm striping. I don't normally like wordmarks used as jersey crests, and I'm not totally into this one. I think it's a neat looking wordmark but the skull logo is small. I'd rather see just the skull logo or even the skull guy skating logo. I think with a few changes and a dark version this could make a great set for Milwaukee.

Buffalo Sabres Alternate Jersey Concept - Ryan C.
This is basically the same jersey as Ryan's Arizona concept from today without the paint bucket panels. This is the better of the two though. This would be a great yellow jersey for Buffalo. I really like this Buffalo wordmark. It looked great on their fauxback jersey and it'd be nice to see it come back. The striping is extremely simple  but it works well here.

Colorado Avalanche 2016 Stadium Series Concept - Taylor R.
With the recent announcement that the Avs will host a Stadium Series game we'll probably start seeing a lot of these concepts. This year's Stadium Series jerseys are very simple and stripped down as they tried to make them look better from further away. I'm not saying every year's SS jerseys should be like that, but they shouldn't be as cluttered as this one. There's a lot going on; New logo, chest stripe, angled stripes, mountain side panels. I'd say lost the angled/chevron striping, it's been done on SS jerseys. Maybe focus on the side panels. The thin chest stripe isn't working for me either. The blue pants and helmet are intriguing but i wouldn't doubt we see something like that in the actual game. Striping on the pans seems unnecessary.

Rating: 7.5/10

Winkler Flyers (Manitoba Junior Hockey League) - Taylor R.
Their current logo only has one side of wings on the W and I think this is an improvement. The jersey has a throwback feel to it and it works well with the logo. I think the striping should either be slightly thinner so it doesn't go so far up the sleeve or get rid of one set of stripes so there's only 4. The 5 works though since the logo has sections on each wing. Pretty good jersey here and it'd be a pretty snazzy alternate jersey.

Rating: 8.5/10

Well that's today's post, again, I apologize for the lateness and will make sure it doesn't happen again.
