  1. Habs'ing the NHL: Alternates (Vancouver added)

    Just a heads up, front left wrist if the caps update still has a touch of the vertical piping
  2. Houston Rockets - Nike Concept - C&C ?

    I'm in favor of the first option (the true yellow) but with the logo on only one side of the shorts

    Is the sharks concept supposed to return them to their original scheme? Otherwise the teal is a bit light as is

    I left them a bit low intentionally. That way the road would be primarily white, rather than half white, half orange if that makes sense. I may look at it with them a little higher to see what that'd look like overall.

    Philadelphia Flyers As a Pens fan talking about the Flyers in any capacity is enough to make me nauseous, so I'm going to do my best to keep this short and sweet. The flyers get a look inspired by their current logo and past history of hockey in Philadelphia. The arm striping draws its pattern from the wings on the logo with four black stripes highlighted by 5 white. The hem and socks pay tribute to the Philadelphia Quakers with a three stripe design that uses black to fill the negative space. The Quakers are also the source of inspiration for the bare black pants in this set. This pattern is carried over to the away with orange having its influence on the cuffs and yoke to establish the color balance. The name and numbers maintain the Flyer's current look, including their iconic contrasting nameplates. Overall, the look seeks to marry new and old to give the Flyers a fresh look that separates them from their current look.

    Turns out @TheGoldenTriangle was right. The navy I was using was ever so slightly darker than their official. Guess I've found a new color code site, haha. I've updated the post above with the new blue (shown below on the right, with the old on the left).

    I matched the color code with the website I use for all of them, so I'm not sure why it's so dark. I had thought the same thing and I might actually check it against another website to see if they actually got that wrong. I kinda like the current darkness of it, tbh, gives them a unique look

    New York Rangers The Rangers' current look leaves very little to be desired, save for a bit more consistency. This set seeks to find that consistency by looking to two specialty jerseys from the Rangers' recent history, namely their most recent alternate and Winter Classic jerseys. The away in this set draws almost directly from the WC jersey with the extension of the bottom hem stripe t aid the set's color balance, the usage of the "New York" diagonal text, and the usage of white rather than vintage white. This striping pattern is matched on the home, yielding a look much like their most recent alternate with the addition of shoulder stripes,"Rangers" text in place of the geographic identifier, and white again taking the place of vintage white. Both uniforms use navy in place of royal to give the Rangers a fresh look (also because it was used in both the Alt and WC uniforms). The Rangers maintain their iconic pant design and their WC logo is promoted to primary status to better mesh with this retro-inspired identity.

    Here's an Islanders touch up per @TheGoldenTriangle's feedback. I had thought something looked of and I'm thinkning that might have been it. The difference is subtle, but that added bit of orange does a lot for the set and its consistency.

    New York Islanders In this set, I tried to develop a new look for the now island-less Islanders by combining three of their recent looks (Their current home and road looks, their Brooklyn-inspired alternate, and their Stadium Series design). The overall color layout is taken from their current set, with the blue and orange flipped in comparison on the road for better color balance. The logo and white yoke on the home is taken from their SS design and the 4-stripe pattern is taken from their Brooklyn look. This pattern is matched on the socks and the 4-stripe look finds itself on a square shoulder yoke. The pants get a Blue-Jackets treatment with a single stripe along the bottom and remain bare of any logo complementing the unique design of the rest of the set. C&C welcome, as always.

    New Jersey Devils With a growing crop of youth, now including 1st-overall pick Nico Hischier, the Devils could benefit from a modernization of their iconic look. It is my belief that they attempted that (albeit without much success) in their addidas rebrand. In this concept, I hope to provide an alternative route for modernization by actually throwing back to an old logo. This concept champions the prototype logo that was ultimately discarded by the devils in favor of the combined NJ. To be honest, I've always disliked the current Devils logo simply based on the letter recognition, the J pops right away, but the N has to be inferred to some extent. This logo doesn't have that issue, with both letters prevalent. Now, I hate BFBS as much as any other designer, but the Devils pallet hierarchy is re-imagined here for two reasons: 1) BFBS is possibly the easiest way to connect a design to youthfulness for whatever reason (see Team North America in the WCoH). 2) I think this logo simply looks better against black rather than red. The striping takes cues from the Devils jerseys of old, where a stripe was created on the dark jersey by simply outlining the base color in white, effectively providing two different looks from an identical striping pattern. This is accomplished here with hem trim and black outlines on the away while the striping takes a straightforward look on the home. The black-heavy uniform is matched with red pants with a simple white-outlined black stripe and the main logo on their left. The main logo is left with a black outline against the black base of the home and the white of the road to achieve a similar look to the striping on each uniform where is component is defined by the black that surrounds it.
  12. I would say the W-only logo with the white background is the strongest. Easier for small applications and gets the job done without adding an unnecessary color to the scheme.

    @TheGoldenTriangle I want to keep the hem stripe to keep the Union Army significance. Plus just a diagonal stripe is something I've seen before, so I'd like to keep things fresh. I'm assuming this is what you mean by a disconnected hem stripe. This is actually what I started out with and decided against at the time, but now it seems to be the better way to go.

    Columbus Blue Jackets This Jackets set relies heavily on Civil War inspiration with the cannon logo taking center stage and the striping drawing from the uniform of a Union soldier. The diagonal chest stripe connects with the horizontal hem stripe on the front and wraps around to the back with just the horizontal hem. The socks and arms match the hem and the current primary logo finds its way to the pants and shoulders. The Jackets maintain the unique name and number font of their Reebok set and the pants remain the same save for the addition of the logo.

    Actually, Leaf shoulder patch becomes the 100 patch and vice versa. Same with the Canadiens. If you're doing different shoulder logos make sure the right one is always on the right shoulder of the jersey not the right based on your view.
