  1. Here is the Metro Division: Columbus Blue Jackets HMs: Seth Jones (Longevity) New Jersey Devils HMs: Travis Zajac (Quality of Play) & Zach Parise (Longevity) New York Islanders HMs: John Tavares (Went Out Hated) New York Rangers HMs: Ryan McDonagh (Longevity) Philadelphia Flyers HMs: Jakub Voracek (Longevity) Washington Capitals HMs: Evgeni Kuznetsov (Longevity) No HMs for Carolina & Pittsburgh Notable Exclusions Due to Retirement/Not Qualified: Justin Williams (CAR), Cam Ward (CAR), & Rick Nash (CBJ) Central coming up next!
  2. I only included players still playing professionally, so guys who retired and have yet to see their numbers retired won't be in this series. Hence, since Markov, Koivu, & Zetterberg have already retired, I didn't include them. Miller, however, I didn't think that much of! He just never really stood out to me, he'd probably still fall into the honorable mention category. Vezina is nice, but still probably not enough accolades for retired number levels.
  3. Hey all, I did a series years ago in which I created the future retired number banners for players who have yet to formally retire. Decided to redo this series with better concepts and more relevant players/numbers. For the dates, if it is not the last year a player played for the team shown, I am using the year their current contract expires. Again, this series is just players who are still currently playing either in the NHL or worldwide. Honorable Mentions for each team that didn't quite make it will be below. Getting things started with the Atlantic Division: Boston Bruins HMs: David Krejci (quality of play), David Pasternak & Brad Marchand (both longevity) Florida Panthers HMs: Alexsander Barkov & Jonathan Huberdeau (both longevity) Tampa Bay Lightning HMs: Andrei Vasilevsky & Victor Hedman (both longevity) Toronto Maple Leafs HMs: Auston Matthews (longevity) No Buffalo Sabres, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, & Ottawa Senators HMs Let me know if you agree or have any other players you think deserve consideration! Otherwise, Metro division is coming up next!
  4. AMAZING Suns concept. Looks a million times better than their current crap that they wear.
  5. Looks like the Rangers just leaked that not only will they (and most other, if not all, teams) release a Reverse Retro jersey, but a FOURTH jersey as well for the so-called "Power 31 Collection". Any ideas what you think this new series is going to look like?
  6. They’re okay, would look way better if black was in place of the white on the sleeves
  7. I like the idea of taking their color rush uniform and promoting it to the main road while demoting the white and red road jersey as an alternate/throwback, but I do have problems with it. 1) The old Giants uniforms from the 70s-90s people like look way too similar to the Bills current set sans helmet color. Furthermore, the home version really doesn't age well in my mind and looks very outdated compared to the road. 2) I don't agree with the Giants on the helmet thing, which was only done when the team moved to NJ in 1976 and didn't want to "lie" about their location in the first place. The square nature of the NY works a lot better on the helmet. 3) The Giants have played like total trash in those white color rush uniforms.
  8. Wow I was so hype for the return of pinstripes, but I guess I was wishing upon the Monkey's Paw. These do not look good. Just so many things wrong with this uniform. 1) The purple being almost completely absent outside of outlines 2) The fonts just not looking good at all combined with the pinstripes 3) The weird diagonal stripes on the back of the jersey 4) The numbers being way too big 5) The lack of striping on the shorts (although I know this was the case on the original unis too, still don't like the inconsistency) 6) The plain and boring sleeve and neck coloring 7) The terrible logo placement on the side shorts (it should be way smaller and lower) Had an opportunity to do something great and they botched it. It's a pretty lateral move imo.
  9. That looks way better! Might want to think about adding some outlines around "Phoenix" and adding some space between the Phoenix and Suns text. Otherwise it looks great!
  10. Agreed with the other user here. Colors look great and even the gradient looks nice, but it is WAY too bland for a team called the Suns. Nothing about this image invokes the team name and really just feels like the Knicks primary logo with the triangle removed and the text moved to the center of the ball. I feel you might need several adjustments to make the logo stand out more and feel more "Suns-y".
  11. Thank god finally, someone realized how horrible the Cowboys' current mismatched white set is. This is a marked improvement.
  12. This color rush uniform for ATL is actually AMAZING! Would be one of the sickest and most stylish uniforms on the field.
  13. Sorry for the delays in continuing this series. For now, I am not going to be doing uniforms for the teams I work on due to time constraints, but I will continue with the logos and hopefully teach you about the teams and moves that never were. I will also be doing this by league, so the two other NHL teams in this series aside from Colorado (one unused name and one near-relocation) will come first, before moving onto the other three leagues. Without further ado, we have: Sasktatoon Blues (1983: Relocation of the St. Louis Blues to Saskatoon, SK fell through after failed sale of team): I incorporated a more "S" shaped design (to represent Saskatoon and Saskatchewan) and brought the Blues more bulbous design from the 80s into the fray too.
  14. Hi all, Recently I was browsing the internet and noticed a lot of teams had rejected rebrands or renames that never quite made it to the final product but were awfully close. Thus, I felt it would be cool to do a design series on those rejected rebrands. There are two categories of brand rejection that I will be going into: 1) The rejected brand names either during a team creation or name change (8 teams, 2 in each sport) 2) Teams whose relocations fell through and never happened (4 teams, 1 in each sport) Hope you like this series. Without further ado, let's start this one off with what would've been one of the worst and most outdated team names in all of sports: Rocky Mountain Extreme (1995: Would be branded as the Colorado Avalanche instead) The logo is based directly off concept images for what would have been the logo for the Rocky Mountain Extreme. I updated and refined some aspects of the logo and applied the Avs color scheme to it as well. The uniforms are also partially based on the design of the Avs uniforms originally, but made some alterations to make the appearance more 90s (namely the rough, snowy font).
