  1. It's starting to sound more and more like the Rangers and Sabres are going to face off in the 2018 Winter Classic. Here's my take on what they should wear for the event.
  2. This may sound crazy, however Florida would make a great place for an outdoor game, probably a stadium series game. The perfect place would be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stadium (Raymond James Stadium). Tampa Bay can reach the temperature of nearly 32 F, a perfect temperature and can sustain ice long enough. This would be perfect for these two Florida teams, shedding much press attention on what would have otherwise been a fairly unnoticed event by them. The jersey were based off the old Tampa jerseys mashed together and were meant for Tampa only, however the Panthers looked too good in them to pass by. Generally the theme besides storm vs sun is retro jerseys. The arena would be set up with palm trees all around the outskirts similar Minnesota's pine tree display. There would be a small picture above the arena of a sun facing off against a storm, pushing against one another. This would be between the logos. When the Bolts come out lightning coils will activate as they walk in. When the Panthers walk in fire will erupt followed by gold-ish smoke. Worst case scenario it all melts .
  3. Similar idea to kimball's NBA threads. Post your favorite uniforms and interact your opinions of said uniforms.
  4. With the Blue Jackets' current (and ridiculous) 15-game winning streak gaining steam in the national media, many in Columbus think it's finally time that the league rewards the city with an outdoor game at the iconic Horseshoe. The "Unsustaina-bowl" created a ton of buzz around the hockey world this past weekend, and both ratings and ticket prices were off the charts. What better way than play in the annual Winter Classic against the CBJ's expansion brothers? Before I post the two teams' logos and uniforms, I am going to leave you with a couple of teasers C&C appreciated! More to come soon...
  5. I took a short break from my NHL Pastel Series to redo the Winter Classic jerseys. The changes I made were mostly minor, but I think they really improve the jerseys. St. Louis Blues The Blues really nailed their Winter Classic uniforms this year. When I started out I wanted to incorporate the St. Louis flag into the jersey. Sadly, any way I tried to do so looked awful, so I left the jersey striping as-is, just filled in the cuffs and waist. Chicago Blackhawks The Blackhawks have really untouchable jerseys, so these don't have a major impact either. The "improvements" I made on this one were to add in some sky blue from the Chicago flag, and add the red stars from the flag on the arms. So, I know those were some really minor changes, but what do you think?
  6. I'm in the second season of a "Be a GM" mode in NHL 14 - and yes I do still play NHL 14, mostly because it's better than NHL 15 and NHL 16, but I digress. The Winter Classic for that season takes place at TCF Bank Stadium between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Minnesota Wild, and while the Blackhawks have a variety of old logos and uniforms they could use for this game, the Wild (established in 2001) don't have nearly as much to work with. I based a lot of this concept off of the Minneapolis Millers jersey from 1923-1925 (http://classicmnhockey.com/products/1923-1925-minneapolis-millers-hockey-jersey) and the Vancouver Canucks 2014 Heritage Classic jersey. I thought having numbers on the jersey was really important so I moved them to the shoulders; and actually wanted to have the captain's and assistant captain's letters in a Minnesota-shaped patch on the left sleeve, but it just made the jersey seem a little too cluttered. I've been a part of this website (using various e-mails) for a long time, but this is actually the first concept I've ever posted, so I would love to hear what everyone thinks of it.
  7. This is my idea for what this year's winter classic should look like. St Louis: I edited their sleeve strping from the mid 80's to early 90's and made it extend to the cuff. Chicago: I used sand as the primary jersey colour, gave them a double red-stripe sleeve and hem pattern, and a black yoke C&C is appreciated!
  8. Hi all! A longtime lurker, this is my first thread. Here's my idea for next year's Winter Classic: C&C appreciated!
  9. There's been rumours about the 2017 NHL Winter Classic maybe being played in St. Louis. I don't know how true those reports are, but when I heard the rumour, I thought of an idea for the logo. So I created a logo for next years Winter Classic, if it is to be played in St. Louis. I used aspects from the Busch Stadium logo, last year's Winter Classic logo, the St. Louis Blues alternate logo (the arch) as well as the Blues colour scheme. This concept was solely based on the potential of St. Louis getting the Winter Classic. If they don't, I might make another logo for the city that gets it. (Maybe Toronto) I had an idea for Toronto as well. I'm pretty new with designing new logos; I'm better at having an existing logo and redesigning uniforms and stuff, or tweaking existing logos, so don't be too harsh. That being said, any C&C is very much appreciated.
  10. Here are some designs I've created for a possible Winter Classic in Toronto. Here's the event logos... Now on to the team logos... The Maple Leafs... And the Rangers... For the Maple Leafs logo, I combined their shoulder logo from the 1990's and an updated Toronto Arenas logo. As far as the Rangers, I took their mark from 1947-1953 and tweaked the colors. Here's the uniforms for both teams (outfitted with Adidas jerseys, not Reebok). And, of course, you can't forget the field. I've heard from sources that BMO Field (Toronto FC) is more likely than the Rodgers Centre, so I based my design on that. That's all! Let me know what you think.
  11. So every year, I host a hockey game on my backyard rink that I named the Kehler Winter Classic. I created a league logo for the Kehler Hockey Association, which I basically copied the NHL logo and changed a few things, but that's not what I care about here. So, PLEASE DON'T COMMENT ON THE LEAGUE LOGO. Thank you. Anyway, I was in the process of creating the logo for this coming year, and I went through 2 logos before I came up with the one I'm going to use. I just wanted to know what people thought about my event logo. I won't be changing anything, since this whole event is just a fun thing I started, so I don't really care if it's perfect or not, just wanted some opinions on my process and logos. This was my first go at the event logo: I wasn't happy with the river so I redesigned the whole thing, basing the next logo off of the large car we have in my hometown: I looked at this one today and thought it looked to crowded, so I came up with my final concept for the logo: Along with an alternate, though it's not my best: Any comments and criticism are appreciated
  12. So, the Winter Classic for 2016 has already been announced between the Bruins and Canadiens, to be held in Foxboro. I made two designs for another Color Vs. Color Winter Classic in 2017, to be held at Citi Park in Flushing Meadows between the Islanders and Devils. These are pretty basic designs that I think look good, so here they are! Let me know your comments and thoughts!
  13. I know the 2016 Winter Classic hasn't even happened yet, but as a student from Ohio State, I always thought it would be a cool idea to host a Winter Classic in the future. The two teams playing are the Blue Jackets and Red Wings (Ohio State - Michigan). I drew up a logo and two jerseys to go with it. Let me know what you think!
  14. I was inspired to try and create a new logo for the Capitals when the Wizards announced they were switching to the roundel logo for the playoffs and future seasons. Seeing that the Nationals also follow this theme for their logo, I wanted to see how the Caps would looks with new logos. Notes: - The stars on the arm are three in a row - The collar has "Rock The Red" on the inside Let me know what you think!
  15. This is a concept I developed for a humorous mixup that would likely never happen. I realize that it is unlikely that Detroit would get another outdoor game so soon, but I loved the logo and wanted to use it. Comments, criticism, and general belly-aching is accepted. ENJOY!
  16. As I'm sure many of you have heard, the 2016 Winter Classic will be hosted at Gillette Stadium featuring the Bruins and Canadiens. A great rivalry finally taken outside. For this game, I'd love to see the Canadiens in these 1911-12 throwbacks.
  17. Several weeks ago, a "polar vortex" drifted down from the north and froze our nuts off for a week or so. The upside to the freeze was that we scored a couple of days of outside shinny on the pond behind us, before warmer temps returned to melt our rink. Man, there's nothing like strappin' on the blades and playing some pond-hockey. Now the NHL has scored big on its outdoor "Winter Classic". It's HUGELY popular. It's become a New Year's Day event and destination. The players appear to enjoy it also. Is it appealing to puck-heads because it's become a "ritual" of sorts to celebrate hockey's roots? Anyway, the few days of shinny urged me to finish an old project. This isn't a concept, per se...it's actually something I put together for my kids. I fleshed-out the idea using mostly images lifted off the net...but the words are all original and all mine. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great New Year's everyone, and enjoy the Winter Classic... The End.
  18. Hey all, It's been a while since I have had some time to make some concepts. I've had this idea floating around in my mind for a while now (since the Capitals unveiled their uniforms for the winter classic), and I finally had some time to put this together. For the Capitals, I really do like what they're wearing for the WC, but I think that the barber pole striping on the yoke is a little overkill. Because of this, I changed the yoke design a little so that it both honors the original intentions of their design (homage to past teams), and also speaks to the District of Columbia. I also like what the Blackhawks are wearing, but don't necessarily see it sticking around because it is wayyyy to similar to their current road uniforms. What I put together is a little mashup fauxback combining elements from different eras in Blackhawks history. C&C always appreciated. Enjoy! edit....I also have a full set based off of this WC concept for the Caps that I will post soon!
  19. The Washington Capitals revealed the jerseys for the 2015 Winter Classic when they play against the Chicago Blackhawks http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/09/washington-capitals-2015-bridgestone-nhl-winter-classic-jerseys The jerseys are putrid! I can't even describe how bad it is.
  20. After seeing how great the Winter Classic was at Michigan Stadium, and how much I want the Columbus Blue Jackets to have the chances they need to gain traction and survive as a franchise, I came up with this. The NHL needs to get involved in the Toledo War, the war between the state of Ohio and the Michigan territory over the port of Toledo that led to the tremendous rivalry that those two states share today (Ohio got Toledo, Michigan got the Upper Peninsula), and the way to capitalize on the Michigan-Ohio hatred is to have the Detroit Red Wings play against the Columbus Blue Jackets in Ohio Stadium The logo is a horseshoe, for Ohio Stadium, which is horseshoe-shaped and often referred to as "the horseshoe". The interior of it is the open portico to enter the stadium, and the buckeye is off to the side. I'm terrible at original logos, so I kinda threw that together. The rest is why I made it. Detroit was a no-brainer, a vintage-white version of their old white uniforms made so much sense. I added a simple patch for the people of Michigan to bring into Ohio.The Blue Jackets was a little tougher Columbus was a little tougher. I had a blue and red version of their third jersey with just the cannon, and that looks great, but it didn't look like enough for a Winter Classic. I wanted something vintage where I could have the Ohio state outline for the numbers, just like the Barons used, and to make it look very vintage Civil War kind of stuff. I'm definitely open to suggestions on it though. C&C? UPDATE: This is the jersey I rejected because it isn't all that different from their current alternates. However, with the response that it got, I'll promote it. The one major change is the update to the hat logo, replacing the star, which I think the team needs to move away from, with the state outline of Ohio. Not only does it look more Civil War-era, but it does more to appeal to the entire state of Ohio, a pride segment that they have yet to exploit. It doesn't hurt that the red stripes with the silver are Ohio State-like, too.
  21. I saw this concept on the internet for the Flyers 2012 Winter Classic Jersey Then i saw jerseys selling that looked like the concept, but it wasn't the Flyers actual jersey during the Winter Classic game. Did China turn a concept into sales? Is this the new goal? Found this pretty cool. Lmk what you guys think. PS This might be old news I have no idea. Just found it interesting
