    Okay. Mixed signals, but okay. Anyway, here are two more teams. Here's Nashville, using a smooth little guitar-neck sash. Aaaaand here are the defending champs, the Washington Capitals. Using an unused logo (that I love dearly) by Andrew Sterlachini, this one is a stars-and-stripes spangled dandy. Only two more teams remain: St. Louis and Pittsburgh. What do you think?

    Oh no. I take it that's not a good thing. What's the issue?

    ...Anything? Anything? Bueller? Bueller?

    Let's inch closer to completion with these bad boys. Here's my favourite jersey of the bunch, for the Flyers. What could the logo be? What would be the most logical choice in 2019 for a new Flyers logo? Hmmm... The other uni is for the New York Islanders. Here's a jersey inspired by the New York subway map and the trains linking Long Island to the rest of the city. Some Helvetica numbers, odd stripes, another new logo (based off the logo on Chico Resch's Isles mask back in the day) and some sleeve numbers meant to resemble subway tokens.

    Quick little bump before I post another couple of these. Anything?

    Well, they can't all be perfect. I'll put an update together when I get a computer back up and working. Up next, let's do Tampa Bay and Vancouver. This isn't really the most original idea for Tampa, but one I really like. I literally drew this up for the first time when I was eight, doodling hockey jerseys on my school tangfolder. I can't fathom why they haven't at least considered doing like this. Up next is Vancouver. Let's combine a bunch of things that people think of when they think of Vancouver and the Canucks - trees, flannel and lumberjacks meet Chinese culture and the Canucks' old-school Flying Vs. And then there were six. What you want to see next?

    Well, I'm glad to see this thing is getting some love. Here are two teams that have been requested previously. Let's start with Minnesota. We're getting wild with this one (with an idea I first did in my old NHL Hitz expansion series that I shamelessly stole from @Jimmy Lethal and @HarperK) and using the woods to create a unique striping pattern. I think it's the happy medium between '90s craziness and '10s clean. Now, the Rangers. I won't lie - this is the team I had the most trouble with. There's so much imagery in New York that you just can't settle on one thing. So instead, I threw it all at the wall. There are stars, there are stripes, there are checkerboard stripes just like on Yellow Cabs, there's a skyline and an all-around homage to their old rivals the Americans without completely stealing their look. Here we go. That's a very loud jersey set, to be sure, but I'm a fan, personally. There are eight teams remaining - Nashville, the Islanders, Philly, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Tampa, Vancouver and Washington. Where do we go next?

    I've got two more jerseys to post, but first let's get to some questions and comments here. I tried to do that, but I found it clashed with the maroon. The colour you're seeing here is basically the same as the star in the Arizona state flag, maybe brightened a couple of shades. Why thank you. I love working with a totally blank slate. I might give the Whalers or other defunct teams a shot - I'm currently having some laptop issues though, so there may not be any more new concepts for a little bit, but once that's sorted, it's on my list. Alrighty then - I didn't know what else to do with the hem for the Stars, to be honest. It seemed empty without something and just adding a normal stripe just... it didn't seem like the Stars, you know? Red pants might be good for Montreal. I'll give that a shot, along with the Edmonton logo and Florida numbers. I wanted to avoid the retro logo for the Jets because I always liked that old jet, thought it was nice and minimalist. Anyway, with that in mind, here are the Senators and the Sharks. First, Ottawa. The city has deep indigenous roots and was a centre for Algonquin people long before any government buildings were erected. With that in mind, here is the "Kichi Sibi" uniform - using a triple meaning behind the logo, an "O" for Ottawa, shaped like a sun from traditional Algonquin art and a dreamcatcher. And here are the Sharks. I like the idea behind their new thirds, but not necessarily the execution. I wish there was some more colour. So with that in mind, here's my idea of the "Silicon Sharks".

    Continuing on with the LA Kings - wearing purple and gold, as god intended, but in slightly less saturated shades. The wordmark logo looks a little off and skewed - it's actually meant to look like the Hollywood sign. And on request by @jaytavo305, here are the New Jersey Devils. Horns and hellfire are the name of the game with this, what would be the first all-black jersey the team has ever worn.

    Toronto is the only team I've had multiple requests for, so here you go. Once again stealing an idea from the NBA (for the last time in the series, I think), showing off an OVO-inspired black and gold uni with a little bit of Leafs blue (just because I feel like Toronto would riot without the Leafs wearing at least some blue) We're now past halfway and we're still going strong.

    Let's do three, shall we? First up, Edmonton. These unis are based on the coveralls Alberta oil workers have been wearing on the job for decades. That silver material, just like on those coveralls, is reflective. Next is Florida - an easy decision here. Influenced by the Heat, here are the Miami Vice Panthers. And one more (on request) - the Winnipeg Jets. Why only do Whiteouts in the playoffs? With this set, you can party like it's April at the Hangar all season long.

    Ok, here are Les Habitants. Bringing back one of their old NHA uniforms that was very Quebec-heavy in colour and stripes, adding a little bit of red and a new block M logo. The M is not only a shoutout to the original blue jersey (that one used a C) but also a shoutout to the Montreal Maroons. Inside the M are five embroidered symbols from the city flag of Montreal, each for a founding ethnic group of the city. Let's do more of these. Hit me with your recommendations.

    Let's get this sucker back going with the next team up, alphabetically. Still taking requests for teams that I haven't posted. The Detroit Red Wings. Let's go back in time, to Motown, to the car industry at its peak and the city booming. It's time for a little "Motor City Magic". We can keep it going with whatever you wanna see. The choice is yours.

    Well, since Vegas is the team that came up most often, here you go. Influenced by Vancouver's V, but with a few touches that let you know it's a Vegas team - the neon circular "VGK" on the sleeves for example, along with an old-school font. Not to mention the "gold" - how can you call the team the "Golden Knights" without having a gold jersey? So here it is - the "Bright Nights" jersey for Vegas.

    Anything before we go for a random ride through the rest of the league?
