Also, the Quad City Mallards contacted Ryan to give one of us great designers the opportunity to create a military inspired warm up jersey for next season. So if you happen to be interested in do that, put a concept together for the Mallards and get it over to Ryan!
Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final is tonight. I'll be honest folks. I have no clue how this one will go. This whole series has been a home-favored team series. Just look at Pekka Rinne. He is obviously more comfortable playing at Nashville than Pittsburgh and his performance of game 5 shows why. As a Penguins fan, you hope that the Penguins will figure out how to break this home-favored win thing going on right now and hoist the cup for a 5th time but I'm not making any predictions.

Onto the concepts!
Anthony C- Toronto Maple Leafs
Negatives: Those TV numbers looks slightly small and it would be nice to see a bit thicker (not much) of a hem stripe on the primary jerseys so you can see a difference from a distance.
Brooks F- The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim
Negatives: A few things that I think are a little excessive about this are the sleeve design. It's just so many colors and takes up so much of the arms that it's a little too overpowering on the jersey. Also, those numbers on the back and sleeves just aren't working well either. Finally, that triangular stripping on the pants as one color just doesn't match the whole thing overall.
FC M- Vietnam
Negatives: There are some downfalls with this whole set here. To start, get rid of the yellow pants. Second, Make the Captain's patches bigger. Third, change those numbers. It just doesn't work on the uniform. Fourth, both logos on the chest look a little big. Fix the execution and this could turn out to be pretty good.
Jets96- Swift Current Broncos
Negatives: I really don't have any issues with the design but more with the template. It's just a terrible template and it makes everything on the sleeves look crushed together. Also, it makes it look like there is a huge space between the back numbers and stripping on the hem. Also, don't be afraid to add some green as an accent stripe.
Noah B- Ethiopia
Negatives: The numbers on the back of the dark jersey are a bit of an issue. I could be hard to read with that big yellow stripe. Otherwise the uniforms look pretty good overall.
Ryan C- Carolina Hurricanes
Negatives: My only negatives is that the pants look too plain.
Overall: 9.5/10 COTW NOMINEE!
Taylor R- Air Force Falcons
Negatives: Those cuffs make the jersey look a little clustered. Make them slightly smaller and it's golden.
That's all I got everybody. Come back tomorrow for Jets post. He has a really good post about jersey customization and what NHL players he thinks he could take in a fight! Ok that last part was a lie but please add that in Jets! Have a good week and see everyone next week!
