Winter Classic Concepts: Since it is likely that Detroit will host Toronto for the next Winter Classic, I decided to make these concepts.

1. These are based off of the jerseys both teams were wearing from 1934-37. It was also the Stanley Cup match-up from 1936.

2. I then also made a faux-back for each team. Detroit is based off of the their 1928-29 jersey, but with their classic "Red Wing" sleeves and their 1932-34 logo. Toronto is inspired by their 1927-34 blue jerseys, but with 3 arm stripes to match their sock stripes and only one hem stripe. The logo is a mix of their 1938-63 retro leaf and their T logo from when they were the Arenas.

Awesome concept, extra props for not using vintage white

+1. I agree that they should have laces. Also, Detroit would look better with solid white letters and not phantom ones, but that's about it.

Tampa Bay Third: Inspired by (but not direct copies of) 1992-2007 uniforms, original Hawaiian Blue used, and current shoulder patched used as main crest.

Big fan of this... like it more than the primary. Think its awesome you used the original blue. Only thing I would change is making the black inner circle of the crest silver.

Jerseys: Yay.

Logo: Nay. That's just not the type of logo you use on a crest. I recommend using something based on what they previously wore.

Finally had some time to make new concepts. Here are some predictions for the 2012-13 NHL season.

Anaheim: Although I don't like Anaheim's third jersey, it seems to be pretty popular with Duck fans, so I'm thinking they might make it their home jersey and add a matching road. If not this season then sometime in the future.

Chicago: Icethetics reported that Chicago will probably bring back their 1996-2009 third jersey.

Dallas: It has been reported that the Stars will introduce a green third jersey, that will possibly become a home jersey in the future. Here is my prediction of a simple green jersey.

DallasThird-1.png

Philadelphia: There have been rumors that the Flyers will make the winter classic jersey their third jersey for next year. Last time they were in a winter classic, they promoted that jersey. Also they introduced a third jersey the first year possible (2008-09) after the Reebok Edge switch, so I think it's likely to happen.

Winnipeg: Icethetics reported that Winnipeg will introduce a third jersey next year. It could be based off of a jersey worn by the original Jets. I think that is a bad idea, and they should go with something new (possibly an Aviator Blue jersey). But they will probably go with an updated jersey from the original Jets.

Winter Classic: My prediction for the Winter Classic is that Detroit will go with an actual retro jersey, while Toronto will wear a faux-back. The Detroit jersey is based off of their 1934-61 white jersey. Toronto is an updated version of an older concept I made.

Quebec (Phoenix): As a bonus, this is the jersey I think the Phoenix Coyotes franchise will give to their 1st round draft choice this year.

I hope you are right about the Ducks. The third jersey is far from perfect but still blows the bland primaries clear out of the water.

The Ducks jersey needs more black in it, IMO. I also love how the Stars jersey is simple yet unique.

All of these are fantastic. My only complains is that the waist stripes would look 100X better straight. That white Ducks jersey looks much better than I thought it would.

LOVE the Ducks away concept. I was thinking something like this as well. I could see them bring another 3rd in a few year primarily orange.

I agree with you, but since it's a prediction I tried to do what the Ducks would do, not what would look the best.

You're right for Dallas. There wasn't really a need to curve the stripes, I don't know why I did that.

For Winnipeg though I think the curved waist-stripes look better. Also their home and road have curved waist-stripes, so if this concept was real it would probably have curved waist-stripes too.

C & C Please.

I love the idea of lines on top back of the leafs but it would probably make the name very hard to read.

An exemple of a good idea that may bring problems for broadcasters.

Other then that, all nice.

Nice choice for the winter classic, but I think the Wings would wear red, no?

St. Louis: This is my entry for HJC's St. Louis Blues Redisgn. The shade of blue is half-way in between their current two shades of blue. The shoulder patch is their current third jersey logo.

I really like the road, but make the waist stripes straight. I like the home as well, but the logo doesn't contrast with the jersey, so it blends in too much. Try to make it pop more.

I tried to fix both issues. The logo contrast problem is hard to fix without using two shades of blue, so I outlined it in a thicker white line.

Possibly. Buffalo wore white when they hosted, and Detroit doesn't have many options for red jerseys.

I started to do an AHL series but lost interest. Here are a few of the teams that I completed.
