Decided to make this a thread for all my NHL concepts. Here's the Calgary Flames...

I'd like to see this with the logos reversed. As a Flames fan, I feel only the "Flaming C" should ever be our primary logo. As well, no need for it to be two shades of colour.

Yeah, I'm sure if I was a fan of the team, I'd be a lot less likely to mess with the logo. But, one day the idea of a flaming goalie mask popped into my head, and I thought it was too funny to pass up.

I dislike the logo but the uniform is very good. Except I think you should make the neon color more true red (maybe I'm just colorblind) and tone down the shorts color imo

Well, I was shooting for just a very bright red... certainly not neon.

I hate neon.

I'm on mobile, so it messed with the colors probably. I like it!

And make that flaming c patch the logo!

What's so funny is that when I saw that logo, I immediately started thinking about Bret "Hitmen" Hart, and the other hockey team in Calgary, the Hitmen. So, I would say that the logo is a bit too similar to the Hitmen logo, as they have a goalie mask as a prominent part of their brand:

Wow, I actually didn't realize the flames on the front of the mascot's shirt. Maybe bring back the horse head if you want to do something other than the flaming C?

I think as a secondary logo this idea is pretty cool, I like your jerseys as well and don't see that big connection to the Hitmen. But your logo doesn't need the yellow on the mask in my opinion.

Arizona Coyotes. I tried to eliminate black altogether, but ended up leaving it in.

On wow. You see hundreds of Coyotes concepts everywhere...but I haven't seen anything quite like this one. This is absolutely beautiful! The mixing of the colours of different eras works surprisingly perfectly. I think that all people are going to rip you know the font, but to me, I don't mind it at all. Phenomenal work.

Great to see some fresh takes on some dismal NHL identities. For the Coyotes, I feel you could eliminate black by using a dark green in its place, and darken the purple just a bit.

I just don't like how the purple stripe is below the black zigzag on the home, and above it on the away. It's just a striping inconsistency

Agree on the purple... it came out a little more toxic than I intended. Rather than darkening it, I might try just de-saturating (graying it slightly) it a bit.

This was my thought process for that... I knew I wanted to get more of the dark red onto the white uniform, so I replaced the purple elements from the dark jersey with the maroon. ThAt meant adding a purple stripe above, or their wouldn't be enough purple IMO. I gave up a little stripe consistently for better color distribution.

Now that it's explained, I understand and I can say thT you did a good job with that. Solid

The logo could also use a small amount of purple to tie things together. I still like what you did overall. That's a take on their identity I haven't seen before, and the 'purple moon' shoulder patches are a fantastic tie-in to their inaugural look. Looking forward to seeing the update with desaturated purple!

Here it is with a slightly darker and duller purple. I've tried a few times to shoehorn some small amount of purple into the logo, but disliked every attempt.

oldschoolvikings is making NHL concepts now? Sweet.

Lightning- Already a huge step up from the Tampa Bay Maple Wings look.

Flames- I don't think I'd ever want them to change to this, but it's still awesome.

Coyotes- I've never been as fond of the old colour scheme as other are. I'd suggest dropping the purple. Otherwise? Pretty swank.

My C&C so far:

Kings: Good Job!

Coyotes: I feel like there needs to be some green somewhere, although maybe that's me.

Flames: Stick to one shade of red and use either the horse head or the C

Lightning: I think some black would work here.
