Monday: No News; Still Got Concepts

Welcome to the Monday post!

We have no news today coming out of the hockey world as of late. So we'll move right into some blog news.

We will be looking for a new writer! Chase has had to leave us due to other personal commitments and lack of time, and I'd first like to thank Chase for his writing tenure with the blog! Stay tuned on the blog to learn the details, when you'll be writing and what do to do apply. Please know that if you are like most of the writers and in University/College and you know your semester is going to be picking up in a month's time, make sure you have the time to put into the blog, so you're not scrambling to write a post around a 20 page paper worth 80% of your mark, while Ryan tries fill in the day.

Of course voting has reset for the week as it does every Friday! We just have the COTW vote this week, concepts are on the slide of the blog above the poll and a better view of the concepts can be found in the COTW section of the blog. Votes are due Friday at Noon EST as always.

Let's check out some of the Arena Logo Competition entries that have come in since last post!

Noah B.

Great stuff, you still have lots of time to get your entries ready, as they are due on Friday at noon EST along with the COTW votes. Remember to read ALL the rules for the competition before entering!

On with today's concepts!


Buffalo Sabres Concepts (By: Alan H.)

+ Similar striping to what the Sabres had in their classic era, but different enough it's a new look, with a better balance of white on the home jersey 
+ Love the thick collar and triple arm piping 
+ Recoloured modernized logo looks good
+ Good execution

- I've always been confused why the Sabres wore their primary logo on their shoulders, but in the 80s logo design wasn't where it is today. Now the Sabres have enough options for shoulder patches so they don't need to repeat it, but I get if this is a staple of Buffalo design 

Rating: 8.75/10

Buffalo Sabres Concept (By: Anthony C.)

+ The amount of white in the striping, particularly on the yoke, makes this concept look more original and vintage than if there were not yoke or if there was a greater increase of yellow like the Classic era Sabres 
+ Yoke striping looks really good, has a sort of military theme to it
+ Script logo with running buffalo looks great
+ Solid execution

- Just looking at the back of the jersey, it's way to close so something the Blues would wear, I would have gone with white numbers OR made the primary logos yellow 
- Shoulder patch is the cream coloured 1970 anniversary logo from the 1st Sabres script alternate, but there's no cream elsewhere on the jersey?
- No helmet numbers or logos! 

Rating: 7/10

Vegas Golden Knights Concept (By: Ryan HJC.)

+ If the Blackhawks aren't going to use the oversized arm stripes from their 2016 SS jerseys, someone should, and I really like the look of this!
+ Despite there being no white outside the numbers and NOB, the colours are really well balanced, good amount of red and gold too, that combination looks really good
+ Some may not like it, but the rounded numbers are really sweet, something that with the switch to Adidas, only Carolina does
+ Great execution

- The only minor flaw I found was the plain gloves. Granted they aren't bad but it'd be nice to see some red and gold on them
- Normally i'd like to see the Knights with lots of steel grey as it is their colour, but everything is so good hear it's hard for me to say it's a flaw

Rating: 9.25/10 COTW Nom from me!

Vegas Gold Knights Concepts (By: Alan H.)

+ Love the font choice here
+ Striping is something new, and matches really well with the logo
+ Edits to the logo look really good
+ The collar style works for a team like Vegas
+ Solid Execution

- Would like to see some red in the striping or numbers
- Why are the stripes inconsistent on the home and road, look at how the colours are played out. I won't say it's bad but it's a weird choice to make since there's no reason for it o be like that, not would look fine

Rating: 8.5/10

Seth Rollins WWE Concepts (By: Matt G.)

+ WWE merchandise is wide spreading and finds its way onto jerseys quite often, and this fits RIGHT IN with what I've seen done for other wrestlers
+ Striping itself is really unique and goes well with Rollin's logo
+ Rest of the jersey is done professionally, like you'd expect Rollins to wear these in ARCTIC BLAST 18, ONLY ON PAYPERVIEW This SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY 

- If this is a WWE concept, why are there NHL logos in the collar insert?
- The thing about the numbers is even on concept form, they look like something that could only be done through screen printing and look kind of cheap and nasty 

Rating: 8/10, and if you don't like it, I've got two words for ya

Edmonton Oilers Concept (By: Stealin' T.)

+ This is an Oilers edge jersey on an Adidas template, which is something that is not currently being done now

- The TV numbers re backwards, they read 79, and the last Oiler to have 79 as their number was not McDavid it was and still is Dillon Simpson, an AHL D-man from Bakersfield
- TV numbers are also way too big, if you want them to be nearly half the size of the numbers on the back, put them on the shoulders 
- I could be wrong, but the curve on the hem striping isn't centred
- I mean overall, this is an Adidas version of a jersey we've seen every year from Edmonton since 2008 and prior to 1996, it's nothing new, and I think that if the Oilers  had   chosen  blue  we could get the picture

Rating: 4/10

Edmonton Oilers Concepts (By: Alan H.)

+ Home is a definite improvement over what we're getting, and I don't even dislike the new orange EDM jerseys the much
+ Love the thick outlines on the yoke and the WHA style collars 
+ The colour balancing is really off, but the away looks too good and has enough orange I can tolerate it, since Edmonton did actually do this worse, this is an improvement 
+ Solid execution

- Again, I do wish the orange and blue was swapped on the away
- The thicker white outline on the NOB on the orange jersey makes really hard to read

Rating: 9/10

Thank you so much for your support, and while it sucks to be moving on, I'll definitely be a part of the website via a reader!

Thanks Jets!

Actually no :)
It's not a problem to make this numbers through emroidery.
P.S.: sorry for my english - it's not my native language :)
