I will be closing the primary logo poll for the HJC jersey on Friday night. If you have yet to vote for what logo you would like to see on the HJC jersey, then go to the HJC JERSEY page and choose your top 3 favourites.

--------------------------------------

Boston Bruins concepts (by Deferoiler)
I should have posted this before St. Patty's day last week. Unfortunately, the logos are too big and they are also pixelated. The TV numbers appear on the front, but not on the back of the concepts. These would be a good idea, league wide, for warm-ups. Quick side note for Boston fans, did you know that the "TD Bank" in TD Garden is short for "Toronto Dominion Bank"? Just like Carolina's arena used to be the RBC Center, the Royal Bank of Canada Center.

St. John's Journeymen concepts (by Ricky)
This is a fictional roller hockey team that Ricky has created, which is a cool idea, but at least remove the NHL shield in the collar insert. I really appreciate the original artwork logo! It's pretty decent too. The colours remind me more of a desert team than an east coast Canadian team.

Nashville Predators concept (by Caz)
We've seen this a couple of times before, modeling a Preds jersey after the old Nashville Dixie Flyers. This one is fairly well executed except that the blue and white stripes would go over top of the stitching of the jersey. However, only some people care about that, so it's not a huge deal.

Phoenix Coyotes concept (by WinnipegJets96)
This one is not working for me. That hem stripe is so great and has so much character and then big blobs of desert brown are thrown underneath it and on the arms. I think the socks are great and if the jersey was based off of those it would be really good.

Michigan State concepts (by Brian R.)
Brian finds that the Binghamton Senators' jerseys work well for MSU. I would have to agree with him. I think the black jersey with the wordmark looks best. The TV numbers have been executed wrong though. Instead of half of the number appearing, you would see 8 on one side of the jersey and then 9 on the other.

Florida Panthers concept (by Tyler G.)
I like it, but I think the arms could be better executed. As is, there are no execution errors. I just wonder if the full blue sleeve stripe should match the thickness of the shoulder yokes? Also, should it have the same yellow outline.Still, it looks like some really good clean work here.

New Jersey Devils concept (by Mazzz)
I really like this idea! Mazzz has stirred up the Devils' retro jerseys a bit and made this unique design. I like the wordmark across the chest WITH the logo. The green helmet and white gloves may be too over the top, but that's nitpicking. COTW nom from me!

Seattle Metropolitans concepts (by Justin)
These look great! The MLS' Seattle Sounders did a great job using the Space Needle as a logo. As such, Justin has used it here for his logos. The jerseys look really great, nice and classic. That green 3rd jersey works really well with the wordmark also! Great stuff here.

It's my fictional rollerhockey team, but this was designed for before the IceCaps name was chosen for the new AHL team . . . that's why I left the NHL logo on it since I had never digitalized this jersey over four years.
