  1. This. The only 3 uniforms I personally think should even be in contention for worst NHL Jersey are the one I nominated, the Turdburger, and that Thrashers thing. In my opinion, just about any uniform that does something that none others have done before (within reason), can't qualify as the absolute worst of all time. That's why the flying V isn't a realistic contender, it was unlike anything before or since, and it's still talked about today. It has legend status and kitsch value. The Burger King and Fisherman jerseys are under that same umbrella, they try to be unique and they succeed at it. The Turdburger is an abomination. But trying to be as objective as possible, it does have a few things going for it that the Isles one doesn't. It uses the actual color scheme of its team in a different way that *attempts* to be interesting, and it has a logo on its chest, a nice one. That's it, but that's 2 more than the Isles got. In fact, I'd be willing to go out on a limb and say that the only 2 jerseys in NHL History that don't have one positive attribute are my nominee and the red Thrashers Alt. Is that crazy? Also, that road Oilers jersey is a dark horse and has always been near the top of my worst list, but the logo saves it from true contention imo.
  2. Worn from 2011-2014 by the New York Islanders. It Features BFBS and GFGS, 5 Colors, No Chest Logo, A Lighter Colored Helmet than Jersey, and Weird Diamond-y Things on the Sides. It's the Worst. Prove Me Wrong.
  3. Not sure why I move at such a molasses pace w/ this series, but hello again. Glad to hear it! Yeah, so the jersey striping was honestly the trickiest part of this team. IRL my idea would be to have the trim slightly reflective, to achieve a kind of futuristic glow effect, but that doesn't translate here, so your criticism's more than fair. I almost went with pure California Golden Seals style football stripes for accent, but they never looked quite right solid. Thank you as always Coco! *wink* *finger guns* That's very good, it felt right right away and all the way through. Ha! I see it, I see it. Thanks Brian That's a nice problem to have! My original set only had 4 uniforms, but when I realized none had the wordmark I shoehorned in a 5th. I tried every which way to slap the wordmark on either the home or road, but the H just looked so much better on each. Thank you! A raygun logo was a necessity. I think that would be a problem only if the tail extended a little further. Oof, agree to disagree but I appreciate it! Anyone have opinions on who the next team should be?
  4. Mark, each and every one of these rocks hard. Seriously great stuff, and such a novel, unexplored concept. FOLLOWED. I'd throw these on the pile:
  5. Well, it's been a while. I spent so many months on the Suns and this next entry that they almost feel like real teams to me. I imagine the next club up will take less than 9 months to complete, but who knows I guess I like to take my time with these. Labors of Love, they are. It's a very clean, rewarding feeling to take a crack at scrubbing the baseball world of a team like the next target, the ohmygodpleasestop brand known as the Rocket City... *sigh* Trash... Trash Pandas, there. This is my attempt at providing Rocket City baseball with some dignity, much in the vein of this series, and that starts with removing Rocket City from their moniker. Let me know what you think of this proposal for the Trashies replacements, a little CCSLC C&C always makes my day. Thanks!
  6. Been meaning to comment some feedback on this thread for a while, I've loved following it: LA: I personally like the Kings with black shoulders on their black jersey, but a very solid, clean look for them. Alternate's great. I can't even like the RR ironically, it's that bad. Kudos. 6/10 ANA: See, I almost always prefer teams to keep things traditional with striping, but the Ducks are an exception. I feel like their jerseys should always be a little unusual. So while the H/A look great, it just doesn't feel like the Ducks to me. But WTH do I know, they're sharp and balanced so I'm probably overcriticizing here. Kinda hate the version of the Mighty Duck logo with the oval around it, so just using the one w/out it would make the Alt. jump a few points for me. RR's an upgrade for sure. 6/10 NJ: The perfect New Jersey Devils uniform set. Only reason not a 10 is for lack of creativity on the H/A. But the old look needed no changes, so why should you? Eh, I'm finicky. 9/10 BUF: My favorite so far, truly flawless. Love the H/A shakeup, the Legacy kicks butt as well. I can't express how much I love the Alternate, that just has to be realized. 10/10 MTL: 100% agree, the Habs roads need more blue so a really nice look there. I like the Alt. and Legacy a lot too, smart idea to implement the barber pole and I'm a fan of the sash, real or not. I wonder even if that's not true to the 'original" if the C might look better blue? Just a thought. 8/10 Excellent stuff, keep it coming!
  7. Ehhhh, I don't think you'll be able to finish this series. You seem like a quitter. /S Detroit's darn near perfect. The RR is superb, those'd look real sweet on ice. 10/10 Ottawa's great as well, the home uni is such an effortlessly coherent combination of their many design directions. The smallest of sugs, maybe an extra black outline around the back # on the alt? 8/10 San Jose's H/A are very realistic, if not a tad underwhelming. A good look. The Alt. just doesn't do it for me, feels a bit too 'conceptual' if that makes sense. Could be the sleeve stripes, they're very novel, but maybe a little muddy visually. 6/10 Great start, looks like another incredible series!
  8. If there was a CCSLC member HOF, this thread is all you'd need to be a first ballot inductee. Now that you're officially completed I gotta congratulate you again on your determinedness and top-quality concepts here. You are a Creamer Legend.
  9. Well. My determined friend, you have triumphantly completed your lofty undertaking. A feat most freaking incredible. Now, as per my promise, through 11:59 PM ET on December 7, my member title will read whatever it is you wish. Whether it be something in the Colin Turner is a insert flattering word here vein, or something else of your choosing, that's all up to you. Mull it over and let me know. Congratulations and Magnificent Job!!!
  10. Was appreciating how 60’s the Suns looked before I even read that was the period. This is fabulous, and way too good to be limited to just hats. Uniforms, programs, etc. whatever you feel like making, make. This is good stuff.
  11. So I'm not entirely sure where or when it started, but I've heard bandied about the notion that the best sports logos, or maybe even best logos in general, should be able to be drawn by a bored 3rd grader on his notebook during class. I agree with this opinion generally, even if there are quite a few exceptions. The Flyers, 80's Phillies, Hawks, Whalers, Atlanta Flames, Buffalo Braves, etc. all have that classic 70's style logo look to them and are some of my personal favorite Big 4 logos thanks to that. So I got to thinking, what would the NHL look like if every logo passed the doodle test? And after a good while and a whole lot of doodling myself, here's my answer. I redesigned every team's emblem and tried to keep each as simple and easily replicated as possible. For creativity's sake I redid iconic and already very simple logos like Philly, St. Lou, and Montreal, and even remade the NHL logo itself. Let me know what you think of these little nuggets and whichever teams you'd like to see tweaked or elaborated, I'll tweak or do a few jersey sets and maybe small merch sets. Thanks People!
  12. You should be proud sir, excellent work in completing a super professional series! Detroit and Toronto are my favorites, but they all feel real. Great job!
  13. There's always the 49ers 49ers.
  14. Love it. Baby blue is a super sweet addition for the Sox, It'd be great to see that lovely custom White Sox script they unveiled last year implemented somehow as well. The all-black gets a big thumbs up from me. I'd love to see what you'd do with the A's. Great start!
  15. Well yeah, but Merriam-Webster says the plural can be either Kraken or Krakens, and they're asking how the team intends it anyway.
