    Hey folks! So this will be my first series here in about six months. I haven't been creating concepts as much during the summer, but now that hockey's back, I figured it was time to continue. This series is focused on the 2023-24 NHL season, the year after Adidas' jersey contract expires. With Adidas not willing to extend their contract, Nike becomes the official NHL uniform supplier. Along with the switch, the NHL decides to lose the traditional home/away jerseys and replace them with a new system that mimics the NBA's new 4-jersey system. Each team will now have four jerseys to choose from for each game: FREEZE: The team's white jersey. CLASH: The team's colored jersey that closely resembles the FREEZE uniform. STORM: This will be the team's alternate jersey, using a dark color, and completely lacking white. PRIDE: This jersey can be any color. It reflects both the history of the city and of the team itself. The home team will choose the jersey they want to wear, and the away team will select one that doesn't closely match that of the home team. With that in mind, here is the first team! **************** CALGARY FLAMES FREEZE/CLASH: These uniforms bear a striping pattern similar to their alternate jersey from 2013-16 seasons, while the logo remains the same. The number font is also changed. ALTERNATE: The striping is similar to Calgary's early uniforms. For the first time since 2006, the team will have a black jersey. PRIDE: The overall design is based of of the WHA Calgary Cowboys' uniform, though it doesn't match completely. Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? Leave it below!

    And paired versus the classic looking Avs in maroon/burgundy/sedona red (whatever the correct name is), it's such a beautiful non-O6 matchup...

    Would it kill visitors to wear some color? Okie St how about some orange helmets and/or pants? All white isn’t all that “tight” anymore. /rant

    I disagree. It SHOULD NOT matter WHEN you make such gestures. A good lesson would have been suspending him in the World Series. Sure, the union would probably fight it and maybe a pending suspension would have been delayed until next season anyways, but at least the MLB would have looked proactive on this particular race issue.

    I dunno, man. Something tells me that Portlanders wouldn’t necessarily have a problem with a logging-themed sports team.

    The Avs right now are at the best they've ever looked. The silver border is vastly superior to the black and white ones they had before

    Plenty of teams have shoulder logos pointing in opposite directions. I don't see what the issue is.

    The Bucks already use a version of the Mecca court but in current colors. As great as the Mecca court is, it's not something I would like to see on a permanent basis now. The reality is that court was a jumbled mess of colors that didn't fit the uniforms the team was playing in.

    Really? Like, for real? You can't see the issue with what he said? He didn't even say the analogy right! (It is asylum, not prison.) Let me break it down: 1. African-Americans, both in the NFL and real life, get called thugs and criminals all the time with no justification. 2. The owners were talking about players, those who protest and those who do not, this whole meeting. 3. Through this analogy, these players are considered criminals to these owner's prisons. Essentially saying that these players should have no power and that their opinions and thoughts have no value. If you say something to make an entire team almost walk out of practice, maybe it's time to consider if what you said was really the best thing to say, and also how you can avoid making yourself look foolish like this again.

    1999 Playoffs After another strong showing in the regular season, many expected the Minnesota Lumberjacks to claim their third Lewis Cup of the decade in 1999. Facing the Vancouver Bighorns in the first round, a team that had not won a playoff series since 1993, many even predicted a sweep. After the ‘Jacks won game one, the Bighorns took the series lead with two stunning OT victories in games two and three. After Minnesota tied the series back up in game four, the Bighorns won a thriller in game five to retake the series lead. If they wanted to avoid the upset and defend their title, Minnesota had to win game six on the road. Game six was the third game of the series to go into overtime. Christian Grayson held down the fort for the Lumberjacks through the first overtime, but just minutes into the second overtime, veteran Bruce Blackwell ended the game and the series with a wrist shot that found the top corner of the net. Vancouver had pulled off one of the biggest upsets ever, while the Lumberjacks’ season was suddenly over. Elsewhere in the Western Conference, the Twisters took seven games to eliminate the Seattle Grey Wolves, the Winnipeg Pioneers had the second big upset of the year over the Los Angeles Wizards, defeating them in five games, and the Chicago Shamrocks took out the California Nuggets in six games. In the east, the Long Island Concordes weren’t expected to put up much of a fight against the Montreal Royale. The Concordes stunned the Royale in the first three games, taking a 2-1 series lead. Knowing they could not afford to fall behind 3-1, the Royale eked out a 4-3 win in game four to tie the series. In game five, Vincent Ducharme was knocked out of the game after a devastating hit from Concordes defenseman Riley Gardiner. The Royale hung on for the win, but knew they needed to respond to the hit. In game six, the Royale dressed enforcer Ryan McCarthy and McCarthy immediately went after Gardiner, fighting him in the first period. The Royale had responded to the hit but without Ducharme in the lineup, lost the game 4-3. The series would go to a seventh and deciding game in Montreal. Ducharme returned for game seven and even scored the opening goal, while Zdeno Kadlec, Sergei Vetrov, and Todd Paterson each scored in a decisive 4-0 victory to take the series. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Redshirts also went to seven games to upset the Toronto Racers, while the Washington Generals defeated the Cleveland Cosmos in six, and Pittsburgh upset the New York Ciivcs in five games. In Round two, the Winnipeg Pioneers entered their series with Chicago determined to carry the momentum from their first round upset. After Winnipeg won game one, the Shamrocks managed to get their act together in game two, tying the series with a 4-3 win. In Winnipeg for game three, Luke Morrison was the hero in net, stopping 42 shots in a 2-0 shutout. After a 4-2 win in game four, the Pioneers held a commanding 3-1 series lead. Back in Chicago for game five, Vladimir Gaganov scored early to give the Shamrocks a 1-0 lead, but it would be the final goal of his career. Goals from Trevor Nolan and Ryan Cobb gave Winnipeg a 2-1 win and a 4-1 series victory. After the handshake line, Gaganov skated around the Garfield Center, waving and saluting the crowd. In the Eastern Conference, the Washington Generals struggled to stay a step ahead of the Philadelphia Redshirts. After just edging out Philly in game one 1-0, the Generals were embarrassed on home ice in game two as the Redshirts took a 7-2 victory. After the teams split the two games in Philadelphia, they headed back to DC tied 2-2. Game five ended in controversy, Washington led 2-1 when Jeff Waters’ shot beat Jake Borman and appeared to roll across the goal line for just a split second. The goal was reviewed and ultimately disallowed due to lack of evidence that the puck actually crossed the line. The Redshirts were irate, especially when TV replays all but confirmed that the puck had crossed the line. Washington sealed the win with an empty-net goal to lead the series 3-2. Philadelphia had to quickly get over the hard feelings from game five, now facing elimination at home. Gustav Mattsen opened the scoring and Jared Baxter scored just minutes later to give Philly a 2-0 lead. Halfway through the third period, Dwayne Ingram brought the Generals to within a goal but it would be the closest they would get. The series would go to a game seven at JFK Arena. As if to redeem himself after the disallowed goal, Jeff Waters opened the scoring for Philly, but unfortunately it wouldn’t be enough. Washington exploded for four goals in the second period and never allowed the Redshirts back into the game. The Generals were headed to the Eastern Conference Finals for the third time in four years. In the Conference Finals, the Generals would face the powerful Montreal Royale, who had eliminated Pittsburgh in five games in round two, while the Cinderella Winnipeg Pioneers would take on the heavily favoured Kansas City Twisters, a team coming off a hard-fought six game series against Vancouver. Though the Pioneers had been playing some of the best hockey in their history, nobody dreamed they would beat the Twisters, a team that finished 21 points ahead of them in the standings. Dan Crow was spectacular for the Pioneers in the first two games, scoring three goals in the two games as the Pioneers stunned the Twisters in Kansas City with two big wins. Back at the CanaDome in Winnipeg, the Pioneers made the most of home ice advantage, winning game three 2-1 and game four 1-0 in overtime to complete the sweep and advance to the Lewis Cup Finals for the first time in their 33-year history. “We’re ecstatic right now” said GM Jacques Fortune. “It’s been a long time coming for this franchise but we still have another big step to make.” The night after the Pioneers advanced, the Montreal Royale faced a pivotal game five against the Washington Generals. With the series tied 2-2, game five would be critical. The teams were deadlocked 1-1 until the third period, when Vincent Ducharme scored two goals in what would be a 4-1 Montreal win, giving them a chance to meet Winnipeg in the finals. Washington would come out strong in game six as it went into overtime. Both Jake Borman and Jonathan Bouret played valiantly in net, as one overtime became two, then three. Finally, nearing the end of the third overtime, 21-year veteran JC Girard finally ended the marathon with 3:42 left, sending the Royale to the Lewis Cup Finals for the fifth time in the 1990s.

    The stars first struck me as being from DC rather than Slovenia. The design itself is good, but I read it as an hourglass at first glance, rather than an N, M, or a B. To decipher the letters out, I had to squint and think about it a little bit. In fact, I see a D before I see a B. It's a good looking design, and the colors are sharp too, but it's just a little complex, and it doesn't really get the point across that you want it to. It works, but it can still be improved upon.

    When you look at a shoulder patch, it's going to be from the side. You have to be able to read it from that side, so the opposite is going to be facing the other way. That's just how it is. Also, the old foot logo on the Avs sweaters were the exact same way... The more I see old Avs sweaters, the worse they look... The current dark jersey is miles better than the original. Look at the outline of the mountains compared to the socks. Only the current dark matches. (Of course, the original white looks better, because it actually matches the sock pattern)

    Yup, just this. But depending on someteam colors it can look like a service award. For most teams it's the helmet striping for their primary helmet.

    The problem is that the away team's identity is not represented strong enough as it should be on the road when they're wearing white. The home team, on top of not having to let people know of their identity as much since playing at home, has its identity well represented on the court graphics and among the crowd, as is. Hence the white works for the home team.

    There have been a lot of great white helmets that don't have white facemasks. A lot of white/white helmets look like generic practice helmets. A few teams that wear white helmets and look great with non-white facemasks: Air Force Auburn Colorado Duke NC State Nebraska Penn State SMU South Carolina Stanford TCU Wyoming

    I wish the NHL would go back to white being the primary home jerseys. I think the home teams should be in white more often than not across every sport

    For me colour-vs.-colour is worse. While I don't like it when the wrong team is in white, at least the spectacle of the matchup still looks good. But a colour-vs.-colour matchup is unwatchable. Chelsea have a white away kit this season. When I saw it in action, I remembered how long it took me after I started watching the Premier League to be able to be comfortable with matches involving two teams in coloured uniforms. I wish every team had a white kit.

    Not trying to start anything. You're the one who's always on edge. And, if anything you're the instigator of most of the drama you're involved in on here. I was referring to the game last night. Sorry, I wasn't specific enough with my comment. I was agreeing with you. The rainbow jersey was worn WITH the Robert Indiana court. The jersey they wore last night was not. I too would love a return of the Irish rainbow jerseys.

    Two dark colors just dont work well together. If any kind of blue should go with brown, it should be sky blue.

    I worked up a design for the competition over at HJC. I brought back "forum blue" and gold for a modern design. They also alternates based loosely on times in the club's history. What do you think?

    Supreme is working with Nike to make customized officially lisenced NBA jerseys. Anyone have any more details on that or what they will look like? I saw on DJ Khaleds snapchat of him customzing his own nba jerseys in the “nike lab” a few weeks ago. Some had different color ways on different jerseys, for example he had customized a Miami Heat jersey with Miami hurricanes colors

    I agree with the critiques that the Portland logo looks too modern for a 1988 team. So, I have simplified it. Maybe the newer version will reappear in the future if the Grizzlies survive into the 2000's. Here is the modified Portland look.

    I can't envision it not being the Expos. Like the Hornets, I think the success of the franchise somewhat depends on getting the old name. So the question is whether MLB will stick with the franchise model or not. I tend to think they actually will, given the way history has tracked for so long. But it makes me nervous. The other question is whether they'd be inspired more by the pinwheel era or the more dignified later era. That also makes me nervous. I really liked the more recent uniforms but I am sure the fond Expos memories include the three-tone cap.
