    Seattle Kraken (Logo Edited 2/17)

    I’d say it’s a step back. The black hem and extended cuffs make it too Hurricane-esque to be successful. Better in a vacuum, perhaps, but the original would let them hold their own in the NHL landscape

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. When I get some time, I'll go back and take a look at those. We round out the central with... The Winnipeg Jets This one should've been fairly obvious. Who better to do a white-out than Winnipeg? The Jets' beautiful new wordmark finds a home on the chest and the numbers find one on the shoulders. The jersey adopts a simple design to really let the white take hold, but shows some inspiration from the Jets inaugural look from the 1980s. The Jets use their current name and number font, but with the numbers in white and outlined in blue, matching the wordmark while again driving home the white-out theme. Winnipeg also adopts white gloves while using blue pants to help bring some balance to the set. Keep that C&C Coming, folks!

    From Music City to a team with a music moniker... The St. Louis Blues The angled jerseys of the Gretzky era are back, but with a twist. Rather than adding red, the Blues subtract royal and white for a clean, two-color Color Rush look. The hem follows a similar angled pattern to the first iteration white the arms feature the five stripes seen in sheet music halfway up the sleeves and a thick cuff at their ends. The fabled St. Louis horn logo returns in a new two-color variant and the chest logo and #OB are angles to match the striping on the hem. Equipment keeps it simple and keeps it navy to contrast the bold gold sweater. Let's here some feedback, ladies and gents! Only one more team left in the Central.

    The Nashville Predators Music City returns to Navy and brings back their pre-edge font. Striping is inspired by the Sabre-toothed logo with the pattern simplified on the hem and socks. A standalone white tooth finds a home in the pants design and the guitar pick shoulder patch is simplified to include just the 3-Star rounder of the Tenessee flag for use on the shoulders. Keep that C&C coming! Let me know what you think.

    Maybe it’s the native inspiration, maybe it’s the barber pole striping design, but I can’t help but see Chicago when I look at your Ottawa design and I’m not entirely sure what can be done to fix that

    Thanks for the feedback! I'll go back and take a look at what the Stars would look like with a darker grey. Definitely not something I thought of the first time around, just kinda pulled the silver from their logo and ran with it. Might be worth taking a look at as well, though I tend to shy away from dismembered heads as primary crests. Yeah, the Barzal number was an oversight on my part. It's updated in the full Metro mock-up, but I didn't feel it worthwhile to repost the concept just for that. Speaking of dismembered heads... The Minnesota Wild The Wild return to red with the Color Rush look and bring back one of the more unique fonts in the NHL's history. The jersey features a full length green yoke that includes a few elements from t eh primary logo, a sublimated tree appears on the cuff and the North Star finds a home about halfway up each sleeve. Gloves and helmet are green to build off the color of the yoke while socks and pants remain red to keep that Color Rush Identity.

    As we continue with the central, we head to my hometown team. The Dallas Stars Silver takes the forefront here as the Stars throwback to their most iconic jersey, albeit in a simplified form. The old star sweater returns in a three color setup where silver, green, and white are on full display. The chest features a two-color variant of the Texas-silhouette logo and the shoulders do the same with the stars roundel. The pants and helmets feature a two-color variant of the Stars' primary and the unique Stars font is used for the numbers throughout the jersey.

    The Colorado Avalanche Colorado’s sky/steel/whatever-you-want-to-call-it blue is promoted to the primary here with white capped shoulders matching the snow covered peak of the Av’s alternate logo found on the chest. A simple maroon pattern can be found in the striping and color as well as in the name which rests in an extended yoke. The pants are blue with a single white stripe in the C from the primary, becoming a vertical version of the Colorado flag. Socks match the hem and the helmets and gloves are white to add to the snow-capped look.
  9. The end caps of the yokes seem to be a shade lighter than the body of it (basically the area that is the difference between a round and squared yoke). This is especially noticeable on white yokes, see your light blue monsters concept. The trapezoid on the back surrounding the CCM logo also seems to be this lighter shade and the front outline of the yoke seems to have this issue as well (creating the phantom yoke effect I mentioned earlier). Darken each of those a tad and you've got a really beauty. Excellent work on this, LD!

    With the announcement of the full slate of teams for the NHL's upcoming season of outdoor games, its only fitting to move ahead with... The Chicago Blackhawks Chicago takes heavy inspiration from their 2019 Winter Classic look as well as their city flag on their Color Rush look. The black and white scheme of the Winter Classic returns, as does a simplified striping pattern and the logo from the practice jerseys. The arm striping replaces the thin interior stripe with four six-pointed stars, leaving the arms a one-color representation of the city flag, a flag prominently displayed on the city edition of the Chicago Bulls. As would be expected, the equipment remains relatively simple and matches the black and white look of the sweater.

    Would be a beautiful little detail to give the Oilers blue skate holders in homage to Gretzky.

    And our second complete division... The Metropolitan Division The Metro provides some more unique looks as past and present combine to forge a new future. The two New York clubs bring back fan-favorite logos from the 90s and New Jersey joins in the push for the past. The rest of the vision looks forward with looks inspired by recent success. The Canes rock a Storm Grey look and the Jackets don the double blue once again. Pennsylvania turns to two looks remiscent of the 2017 Stadium Series while Washington finally promotes the Weagle to primary status. Particular match-ups of note here would be the Isles and Caps doing battle in orange and navy and the Battle of Pennsylvania, featuring a black on gold game that has already exhibited success.
  13. Solid concept for the Kings. Few bits of template feedback: 1) The cuffs still look a bit odd as @OhioSportsMan61 mentioned. It looks like your ending that sort of “jersey texture” at the cuffs and then keeping the cuffs “smooth” I guess would be the word. Try carrying that texture all the way down the arms. 2) The connection between the yoke and body (especially on the front) could use some work. It’s much brighter right on the edge of the yoke, to the point of looking almost like a phantom yoke. 3) Lose the rectangle around the nameplate. I’m guessing your trying to show that there’s a nameplate rather than the numbers being seen directly to the jersey, but it just looks off, especially with the rectangle outline a different color than the jersey

    Before I post the Metro DIvison set, here's an update to the Hurricane's based on LD's feedback and some personal preferences after revisiting the design. Things to note: Updated alternate logo used throughout the set, collar changes color from red to black, number outline removed, NOB changed from solid black to red with black outline.

    Washington rounds out the East, so let's take a look back at what we've seen so far before moving out west. First off a reminder of the ground rules: 1) Each team will have a unique primary jersey color in their division. This would allow any divisional match-up to be a COLOR RUSH game and guarantees some unique looks for the league. 2) Each team will have a unique primary-secondary scheme in the league. For example, though there may be a few black COLOR RUSH looks, there will only be one black and white team and one black and red team and so forth. 3) Each team will adopt a COLOR RUSH jersey of a different primary color than their primary home jersey to give fans something new to look at (and something new to buy). The Atlantic Division One Division, Four Original Six teams, fortunately that's a trend that won't continue. Boston, Montreal, and Toronto look to their past while Detroit finds inspiration in what is still to come. The Floridian teasm show a mix of state pride and team identity while the Sens and Sabres round out the division by meshing several eras of their jersey histories. This Atlantic offers us a fresh color pallet for a division that is almost entirely red and blue (kudos to you, Boston). The Color Rush system gives us yellow, royal, white, navy, maroon, black, grey, and green and offers up a whole slew of potential match-ups between the involved teams (although Florida may pose some issues if matched up against Buffalo or Ottawa, but nobody's perfect and there's plenty of other divisional games where their CR set could see use). I think a personal favorite of mine would be the long-standing Boston-Montreal rivalry and seeing gold and maroon do battle rather than black or red and white. Let me know your favorite pairs and I can see about putting together a more in-depth uniform match-up graphic for those of interest once this is all said and done.
