Sunday: I'm You But Better!

Good afternoon everyone. Welcome back to HJC. We have a hefty load of five concepts so I don't want to take up all of your time with my chatter. Before I do though, We do have some news on the AHL front. The Belleville Sens released their uniforms and inaugural season patch yesterday.

Let's start off with the jersey, which comes as no surprise to nobody. While that may be true, it looks beautiful! Sure it's a copy of the alternate jerseys the Ottawa Senators wore during the edge era but they look great minus those pants that they decided to use. Also, they're wearing the inaugural season patch on BOTH shoulders. It's a pretty nice logo and reminds me a lot of the old tower alternate logo the Senators used. Overall, this is a solid set minus the pants. 8/10

I'd also like to bring up that the University of Maryland's hockey team needs any help they can get right now. As of one month prior to their season, the university ordered them to get all new white jerseys due to the university discontinuing the logo on the front of the jersey. They have a gofundme page that you can make donations to.

We have three things to vote for this week guys. COTW-JULY, the usual COTW, and the hockey card comp so get on that.

Enough talk, let's get to the good stuff!

Lucas D- Ottawa Senators
Positives: It's actually nice to see to see a black senators jersey. I always liked when they had the black with red stripes on the jersey. Also, the striping on the arms works pretty well with the logo on the front.
Negatives: That cut off yoke on the front is just awkward and doesn't look that good. Also, you could either pull the hem striping up a bit or pull the numbers down because they look really close to the name plate.
Overall: 7.5/10

Matt G- Anaheim Ducks

Positives: The classic striping on both jerseys are nice and the orange collar really pops on the jerseys.
Negatives: You could do without the black yoke. Also, the gold numbers on the back with the orange just looks strange and could use some read. Finally, I can't begin to explain how many times this type of concept has been sent into this website and quite frankly, the template doesn't sway my opinion that this is any better or different than the others.
Overall: 8/10

Ted N- Team Canada 
Positives: Full disclosure: this is based on cycling jerseys. Moving on, the numbers in the maple leaf on the sleeves looks really good and I like the color choice of grey/white/black to have the red really show.
Negatives: I can see where you based the striping off a cycling jersey but it's just a headache to look at on a hockey jersey. It's kind of like an optical illusion that the more you stare at it the more it hurts your head.
Overall: 6.5/10

Vaughn R- 2017 AHL Classic (Laval vs Belleville) 
Positives: I actually like both of the concepts due to the references to former teams. The rockets look like jersey something that the Bulldogs could have worn and the straight copy of the 1930's sens jerseys both look great with the team's respected logos.
Negatives: The plain red yoke on the sens jersey is a little awkward and the numbers on the yokes are kind of bothersome, but it's mostly the fact that it really hard to get the fine details from this that really bring it down.
Overall: 8/10 COTW NOMINEE

Alright that's all I got for you guys today. Thanks for tuning in and come back next week to see if we find Jets an American girl for a wife!

Thanks for the review, Steve!
The cut-off yoke is based on what the Senator is wearing in the logo.

Matt's Anaheim for COTW.

That's a really neat idea on the yoke, Lucas!

I'll second Vaughn R for COTW, that Rockets jersey (despite it looking similar to the Leafs in colour) looks solid
