Loving the different home and away pants on the last two sets. I wish more teams did that.

 

Me too! I've always liked that.

 

Up next are the New York Americans with a patriotic look.

Looks a lot like the Milwaukee Admirals

 

Actually, I'm seeing a STRONG influence from the University of New Orleans Privateers logo-- but that's okay:

I hadn't seen that one. That's a pretty sweet logo!

 

Up next are the California Seals with their unique shoulder stripes and a more modern logo.

Up next are the Kansas City Scouts. I decided to go with a different color scheme and a logo without a Native American in it that still represents the original team name. The Scouts were named after a famous statue of a Native American scout and his horse in Kansas City.

Last one for tonight: the Cleveland Barons. For this design, I used their original pre-NHL logo as my starting point and took cues from their NHL uniforms to create this look.

Up next are the Atlanta Flames. For this design, I went with a classic look with a darker red to set them apart from the current Calgary Flames.

Up next are the Colorado Rockies. I went with a logo based on their original logo set that they only used for part of the 1976-77 season. The uniform features bold chunks of color inspired by the Avalanche alternates.

Not a fan of the logo on the blue jersey, but that's just me. Gorgeous jerseys, otherwise.

Finally for tonight we have the Minnesota North Stars. I decided to go with their original logo (one of my favorites), with slightly altered colors. I've also unified their look a little more by making the striping similar on the home and away.

Y'know, if the North Stars were still around, I feel like they'd be wearing these today after going through the original "Stars" jerseys, the giant star designs, and the college-esque wordmarks.

I'm back! Up next are the Quebec Nordiques wearing a mix of their uniforms from history.

Quebec looks great! Only thing I would do is change the blue and red on the white jersey to differentiate them from Montreal.

Up next are the Hartford Whalers. For their design, I wanted to balance their color a little better, use their historically awesome uniforms, and also add some modern touches. The stripes mimic the whale's tail in the uniform, and a sharper font is used to match the logo. Also, I created a small alternate logo based on their WHA era logo. I've included that so you can get a better look.

How would the alternate look as a shoulder patch?

Finally, we have the Atlanta Thrashers. For their design, I went with a retro basketball inspired design since Atlanta is definitely not a hockey town. I feel like this design would sell well in that market.

Well, that's it for now. Let's see how poorly the Coyotes keep doing. Maybe I'll have to do them in the next few years!

Carolina and Florida too?

 

Anyways, holy :censored: , is that different. Not sure if it's good or bad, but it's different. I like the color scheme, and for some reason, I don't hate the jerseys.

 

This was a good series. Well done.
