Sunday: We Salute You!

Good Afternoon everybody! I know that it's not Memorial Day in America until tomorrow BUT being that I write on Sundays I figured I point out the obvious and say happy memorial day to all current and former military. As a fun fact for tomorrow, I thought it would be neat for me to put a little side note into the post today.

Did you guys know that the United States Coast Guard has had a hockey program since 1942? No I'm not talking about the academy. I'm talking about the Coast Guard Hockey Organization. Originally formed as the Coast Guard Cutters hockey squad, the organization (which is NOT affiliated with the US Coast Guard, DOD, DHS, Any MWR Program or the Armed Forces Sports Council) hosts numerous tournaments throughout the year and help raises money for numerous foundations around the country. If you want to read more about it, click here for more information.

Also, for those of you who actually paid attention to my Maryland post last week, here's the official picture and mockup of the uniform.

Since I have the Penguins to look forward, you guys can definitely look forward to working on your HJC Open logo entries as well as voting for the COTW!

COTW May 19-25 vote (ends Friday @ noon ET)
HJC Open Logo Competition entries (due Friday, June 9 @ noon ET)

Onto the concepts!

Adam G- Florida Panthers
Positives: The simplicity of the striping on the uniform overall works really well with the logos. Also, the color combo works as well.
Negatives: It would be nice to see you match the ends of the arms on the white jersey with the bottom of the white jersey. Also, the shoulder logos could be pushed a little closer to the collar.
Overall: 8/10

Anthony C- Montreal Canadiens 
Positives: good job keeping the dark jersey the same. The white jersey is a really nice take on the former white jersey that they wore in the 40's (and as an alternate in the 2000's) with the modern tweaks to make it slightly different than the dark jersey.
Negatives: Those sleeve numbers look too small. As for the alternate, I'd like to see it as a dark jersey instead of a white.

Anthony C- New York Rangers 
Positives: It's nice to see that you kept the design fairly similar to what they wear now as a dark jersey but having it spell "NEW YORK" looks a lot better. Also, the Rangers' shield with the captain's letter in it is a nice touch as well.
Negatives: Using the shield for the TV numbers, which are a little small by the way, was a cool idea but it just doesn't work here. Also, I get that you just took the diagonal lettering and pasted it onto the front of the jerseys but make it a little cohesive.
Overall: 7.5/10

Anthony C- St. Louis Blues
Positives: The original colors with this design look really good. It has a nice mix of vintage style with a modern look. Also, you almost totally avoided the yellow on white issue.
Negatives: The sleeve numbers are really small and having yellow numbers on the white jersey could be a little hard to read even with the blue outline.
Overall: 8/10

Lucas D- Nashville Predators
Positives: Even though this is, basically, a copy of the Penguins pre-edge jerseys, it works really well for the Preds color combo. The simple stripe on the pants and the logo on the shoulders with the numbers ties this whole jersey together.
Negatives: This does make me miss a yellow primary jersey but it does work so good job.
Overall: 9/10 COTW NOMINEE

Noah B- Buffalo Bills
Positives: While I've never been a fan of sport team mashups, this design really works well for the bills both in color combination and with the logo. Heck, if you got rid of the hem stripe and cut the sleeves to a traditional football fit, we'd be talking about some pretty sweet looking football jerseys.
Negatives: I mean besides the fact that the logo looks a little too low this is pretty solid.
Overall: 8.75/10

Noah B- Calgary Stampeders
Positives: Overall pretty good job here combining the colors and logo of the Stampeders with the Flames' template.
Negatives: The tale of the horse is impeding on the piping of the jersey so you might want to make the logo a bit smaller. Also, the white randomly at the bottom of the hem just looks awkward.

Ok that's all I have for this week guys. come back next week where we find out how many hot dogs Phil can eat in one sitting! have a good week everybody.
