  1. Hi Folks, I'm with a new template and sharper colored pencils. I will be designing an Alternate/Throwback jersey for every team in the NHL using a secondary or alternate logo. Here's the first one of 30. The Nashville Predators. I incorporated both the primary jersey and their old alternate from a few years ago. I used their secondary logo because I liked how it represented the music history of Nashville. C&C is appreciated as always. Western Conference Central Division Nashville Predators
  2. Here are the new rules that are applied according to sports illustrated Link: Rule 1.8 – Rink—Goalkeeper's Restricted Area The trapezoid will be expanded by two feet from the goal post on each side of the net. ​ Rule 23 – Game Misconduct Penalties A new Game Misconduct category will be created. Clipping, charging, elbowing, interference, kneeing, head-butting and butt-ending move from the general category into the same one ("Physical Fouls") as boarding and checking from behind. A player who incurs two such game misconducts in this category would now be automatically suspended for one game. Rule 24 – Penalty Shot The "Spin-O-Rama" move, as described in Section 24.2 of the 2013-14 NHL Rule Book, will no longer be permitted either in penalty shot situations or the shootout. Rule 38 – Video Goal Judge Video review will be expanded in the following areas: * Rule 38.4 (viii) has been modified to allow broader discretion to Hockey Operations to assist the referees in determining the legitimacy of all potential goals (e.g., to ensure they are "good hockey goals"). The revised rule will allow Hockey Operations to correct a broader array of situations where video review clearly establishes that a "goal" or "no goal" call on the ice has been made in error. The new expanded rule will also allow Hockey Operations to provide guidance to referees on goal and potential goal plays where the referee has blown his whistle (or intended to blow his whistle) after having lost sight of the puck. * In reviewing "Kicked in Goals," Hockey Operations will require more demonstrable video evidence of a "distinct kicking motion" in order to overrule a "goal" call on the ice, or to uphold a "no goal" call on the ice. Rule 57 – Tripping The rule relating to "Tripping" will be revised to specifically provide that a two minute minor penalty will be assessed when a defending player "dives" and trips an attacking player with his body/arm/shoulder, regardless of whether the defending player is able to make initial contact with the puck. But, in situations where a penalty shot might otherwise be appropriate, if the defending player "dives" and touches the puck first (before the trip), no penalty shot will be awarded. (In such cases, the resulting penalty will be limited to a two-minute minor penalty for tripping.) Rule 64 – Diving / Embellishment The supplementary discipline penalties associated with Rule 64.3 (Diving/Embellishment) will be revised to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties. Fines will be assessed to players and head coaches on a graduated scale outlined below: Incident # Player Fine(s) Head Coach Fine(s) 1 Warning N/A 2 $2,000 N/A 3 $3,000 N/A 4 $4,000 $2,000 5 $5,000 $3,000 6 $5,000 $4,000 7+ $5,000 $5,000 Rule 76 – Face-offs To curb delay tactics on face-offs after icing infractions, in situations where the defending team is guilty of a face-off violation, following an icing, the defending player who is initially lined up for the face-off will be given a warning, but will be required to remain in the circle to take the face-off. A second face-off violation by the defending team in such situation will result in a two minute minor bench penalty. Rule 84 – Overtime * Teams will switch ends prior to the start of overtime in the regular season. * The entire ice surface will undergo a "dry scrape" prior to the start of overtime in the regular season. What do you guys think? For me, it's basically no comment expect for I like the new overtime rules, and getting rid of the "Spin-O-Rama" moves in penalty shots, and shootouts.
  3. Any good ideas that would improve a teams image? Only do MLB, NFL,NBA, and NHL teams please
  4. 1980 USA olympic Hockey team member Bob Suter died today of a heart attack at age 57. It's a shocker. You will be missed. Best wishes to everyone, including brother Gary Suter, and son Ryan Suter. R.I.P 1957-2014
  5. Time to start a new series now that I have more time on my hands with school being out. Much like my previous series (Third Jersey series), I hope to give each team their own identities through their uniforms. My goal is to eliminate the "cookie cutter" templates that everyone hates around here on these boards - and for good reason. With the emergence of CCM on many major junior teams' jerseys, hopefully we will see some new things from the here is the NHL by CCM. A few side notes...I have 10 teams currently done and fully plan on finishing all 30. After I give each team their primary home and road uniforms, I will go back and add a third for each team. I will post 1 to 2 concepts at a time, and if there is an extended period of time where I do not post a new concept, please don't be disappointed. Here we go.... Teams Done: Tampa Bay Lightning Columbus Blue Jackets (Updated Version) Pittsburgh Penguins Philadephia Flyers New Jersey Devils New York Islanders Carolina Hurricanes New York Rangers Boston Bruins Detroit Red Wings (Updated Version) Dallas Stars Nashville Predators (Updated Version) 1. Tampa Bay Lightning 2. Columbus Blue Jackets C&C is always welcomed and much appreciated. Let me know what you guys think of the new layout too!
  6. Hello all! Today I bring a new concept to you. This time for the Columbus Blue Jackets. I wanted to try something kind of out there for this one so I tried a square yoke with angular stripes. I used the light blue from the Columbus thirds and used it as an accent color. Comments and CC are greatly appreciated! Also thanks to MrWonka for his sexy template.

  7. So, after feedback from those about my Stadium Series sweaters being too good to be Stadium Series apparel, I went back and looked at how to make the jerseys modern, yet keep the classic feel. I've narrowed it down to two sets, I feel they deserved their own thread as they won't have the Stadium Series Patch, nor the cream color. I've been a bit lazy in getting them posted, and today I look and see Demonkah's set, so they may appear a bit redundant, but still hopefully a little different. Here ya go. Home Sets: While A1 is strictly a classic look, with A2, I wanted to add a little flavor, and tried a white yoke, but wasn't feeling it, so tried gray and black and liked it. Not sure how others will feel about it. Road Sets: I really like both Road sets, but for me and B1, it's a teal-palooza. B2, adds a little contrast with the teal hem/sleeves and the black yoke. Which ones do you like? C&C is welcome as always.
  8. Hey all I made a jersey for the Pens to wear as an alternate. These are inspired by the Pittsburgh Steelers jerseys of the 1970's Feedback and CC always welcome. EDIT: This template comes from the incredible MrWonka So shout out to him and his awesome work!
  9. I know everybody is going to say 2013 because of the 21-0-3 start, and winning presidents' trophy. But for me, it's 2010. You may be asking why. 1. The talent (Kane, Keith, Towes, Sharp, Hossa, Versteeg, Brouwer, Campbell, Ladd, Byfuglien, Seabrook, Maddan, Kopecky, Bolland, Huet, and Niemi) they would find different heroes each game. 2. The playoffs. The Blackhawks lost only 6 games throughout the playoffs, they swept a team that the Hawks did not have home ice, they won 7 straight playoff road games before the Stanley Cup Finals. Sure, home-ice is important (They lost twice at home in 2013) but, it's too good to ignore the road record put together in 2010. One more shutout in 2010, then in 2013. Although the goal margin was the same in both runs (+16) but, 2010 gets the edge. A better example is the winning margin. In 2010, the Blackhawks wins over the Canucks were by 12 goals. That's one more goal then the Blackhawks wins over the Minnesota Wild in 2013 and that was a division winner that they faced. The Blackhawks scored 5 goals 7 times. In 2013, they scored 5 goals only 3 times. The Blackhawks won every game when they give up no more then 3 goals. They scored at least one goal in every game. Also, the Hawks won less games in overtime. In 2013, They had to beat every team that they faced at least once in overtime. In 2010, they didn't have to do that in every series. In fact, the Hawks won every game by two or more goals in the Vancouver series. 3. The results. In 2013, they were swept by the 2nd seed Ducks in the season. (Had they faced them in the playoffs, they would have been done in a sweep) In 2010, they won every oppenent in the conference at least once (Although they were almost swept by the Coyotes in the season) They also give Sharks problems as they won the season series 3-1 and outscoring them 17-11 yet they trailed them by one point in the conference standings.
  10. So awhile back, I was looking at an old alternate logo for the Buffalo Sabres. It was the one with the crossed swords on the circle that they used from 2000/01 to 2005/06. I thought of a way to simplify the logo, and also incorporate the current colors. I'm open to criticism, tell me what you think.
  11. Hello All, Here is my first post on this awesome forum. I've been playing around with redesigning a few NHL logos, here's my take on the Colorado Avalanche. Basically making the "A" a mountain. Please let me know what you think. A big shout out to davidson on his logo presentation video.
  12. Hey Guys! It's been a long time since i have posted something, so here is something that i worked on. There are rumors of Tampa Bay getting a third and this is my concept. I went with a simple design but definitely something modern. Hope you like this one! C&C Welcome!
  13. So the other day I notice TRoyConcepts San Jose Sharks modern set and saw that he used Mr. Wonka's template. and proceed to get said template and see what i could do. Also I've been curious to try this fairly new program for mac called Pixelmator. Which is where most of the design and stuff was completed in. I've had a Sharks Stadium Series concept since the game-event was announced last week. Looking through numerous concepts on here and on the web I didn't see anything like what I wanted, so I moved forward with it. Here it is: While last season Stadium Series games featured modern jersey sets with vibrant colors, unique patches and chromed crest logos that were, well…different. This season, I’m hoping is different and opted to combine a modern feel with and old-time look. Starting with the Sharks original jerseys used for the hem and sleeve stripes.The old Fin-in-circle shoulder patch. To complete the vintage look, I went with a cream colored sweater instead of white. The Jumping Shark logo and a not-quite-matte-black shoulder yoke for the modern feel. Straying from last year’s chrome-fest, I opted for a embroidered crest. The back of the sweater is not too much different with the numbers, just made them smaller. Used the current name plate. See below for more detailed images. C&C as always. Thanks checking these out
  14. Greetings everyone, This is my first post, so I apologize if I don't have all the bases covered. This is a concept for an NHL expansion/relocation to Seattle. I chose the name Lumberjacks for two reasons: 1) to pay tribute to the region's first major industry (logging) and 2) I wanted to stay away from the Metropolitans/Metros name, as I've already seen some great concepts for that nickname and wanted to try something different. I would love to add an alternate jersey to the mix at some point. Let me know what you think!

  15. Everybody has had a sport they never liked, or never bothered to care for. So I would be interested to hear what's your's. For me, it's Soccer and Hockey and NASCAR. I don't understand why people find wasting gas, tires, and turning left 90 times fun to watch.
  16. We all have thought about this at one time or another: Which uniforms from the past are better than those currently worn by a team? Whether it be from NIke-fying an entire league (see: NFL), forcing uniforms to fit a certain template (see: Reebok and the NHL), or just horrendous ownership decisions (see: Florida/Miami Marlins), there are just some poor decisions that need to be reversed. Some may be unpopular opinions (PhantomDreamer's obsession with weird pullover baseball jerseys) or completely popular opinions (wanting to completely get rid of the new Jacksonville Jaguars uniforms). Without further ado, my list as follows: 1. Vancouver Canucks 90s uniforms and color scheme vs. present uniforms and color scheme Perhaps my ultimate unpopular opinion next to my love of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks infamous "Wild Wing" jersey, I do not like the current Vancouver Canucks color scheme or their "Stick-in- rink" alternate jersey. I've heard both sides of the debate on the Orca logo, and I will admit bringing back the skate logo isn't the best idea. However, I like the color scheme of the Pavel Bure era uniforms as well as the jersey design from those days. The current uniform design is rather bland to me and the color scheme isn't that distinctive either. 2. Arizona Diamodbacks Purple an Teal vs. Red and Sand Pretty simple, I like the old Diamondbacks color scheme more than the old one. 3.Florida Marlins color scheme vs Miami Marlins color scheme I believe that the current Marlins logo would be solid without the rainbow of colors in it. In fact, the old Marlins logo is starting to look a bit outdated to me. I believe that if the Marlins brought back the teal and black and got rid of whatever multitude of colors they use now they'd have a pretty solid look. So what do you guys think? What uniform designs, logos, or color schemes are you clamoring to get back?
  17. Howdy Guys! I'm working on a new Primary logo for the grand rapids Griffins and I'm sort of stuck so I'm hoping to get past my block with the help of the community. So please comment and help me move this design forward! Version 1: For my first attempt at this logo I came up with this I was really happy with this untill I looked at it more and more. It looks cool and strong and powerful at first but the more and more I looked at it the less and less I though it looked like a Sports Logo and the more I thought it looked like a character from a TV show, just it looked more like a drawing than a Logo. Version 2: For version two I wanted to address the problem areas I had in the first attempt like the Feet and front legs and also make the lines bolder and thicker to give it more of a logo feel and came up with this While I do feel like this version looks more like a logo it lost a lot of the intensity that the first logo had and is just not as impressive all though it is much cleaner and simpler. I'm not saying I don't like this version I'm just not sure where to go from here. Let me know what you think I can do to move this bottom logo from okay/good to great/exceptional. BONUS: I also came up with these along the way. Maybe I can work it into a secondary or something
  18. So this is the first concept I've ever made. I've reworked this concept countless times and I've finally decided that this is the winner. Also used Mr. Wonka's fabulous template (thank you kind sir) so I hope it really pops.
  19. The mighty redux: Conceiving a new Anaheim hockey identityFrom the halcyon days of the Disney-born Mighty Ducks to the period of rule atop the league as black-and-orange-clad Stanley Cup champions, hockey fans in Anaheim have had the luxury of cheering for a team whose identities have consistently been unique and, well, awesome. Although the original Mighty Ducks identity was the butt end of many jokes during its run, its standing with fans remains favorable. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say a significant slice of the fan base would be happy to see it return. Several years after the team’s brand was toned down — and grown up — to become the Anaheim Ducks, the new look seems to have left people wondering what has continually driven the organization to move ever further away from its Disney roots. The latest update to the franchise look, however, has pushed the needle back in the other direction, if only slightly. The Mighty Ducks logo has been resurrected in the form of a shoulder patch, and the orange adornments from 2007 have spread and saturated more areas in an effort to co-opt the surrounding community’s culture. In other words, there’s lots to like, but realizing the full potential of this team’s identity will require revisiting some elements of its own past. MORE HERE:
  20. Hello All, You may remember me from the short lived NBA MLB crossover (Which kind of died because of inactive posting). That was a while ago, and got busy with other things. This time I am back to stay (I hope). I've always been interested in the signatures, below one users post. I thought it would be a good idea to start a series like this because, I have a lot of time on my hands over the summer, and this would keep me occupied. So basically, each team I will do will have its team name, date of establishment, logo timeline, and two popular logos on each side. I understand that this will be hard to do with some times (New York Yankees, Colorado Rockies), but I am sure I will make a few "edits" to get around this. Firstly I will start with 4 American league teams. NOTE: I am not a professional at any level, so don't expect anything out of this world. Los Angeles Angels: Minnesota Twins: Seattle Mariners: Cleveland Indians: Thanks to Fonts by Conrad C&C always welcome!
  21. This is only my second concept and the first one I'm posting. I'd love to hear ways you think this design could improve. I always felt that despite having some exceptional logos, the Buffalo Sabers have always had lackluster unis. He's my concept for a new alternate jersey, because basically anything is better than their current one. I drew some inspiration from their vintage looking alternate from 2010-2011 and tried to combine in with a sleeker look from their buffa-slug days. I came up with the crest by combining a former shoulder patch, which I slightly re-colored and placed atop their traditional golden ring. Hope you dig it - Nick Empirical Designs
  22. I really liked their blue alternate jersey from a couple years ago, so I made this set based on it. Home: Away:
  23. I'm new to making concepts but this was an idea that I've been thinking about for quite a while. If all goes well, I'll try create similar jersey combinations for other NHL teams. After the concept, I provided a description as to how the jerseys utilize elements from different eras. Comments and questions are greatly appreciated.

  24. I personally dislike the Minnesota Wild's red jersey, so I made it green here and I used the bear head instead of the roundel logo. Let me know what you think.
  25. This is to discuss teams that you think need a new venue.
