PHILADELPHIA FLYERS

I couldn't find my old hockey concepts thread, so I started another one. I'll repost my old concepts here soon, but for now, here's a new one I made for the Flyers. It's basically a jazzed-up version of they they have now, kind of a 70's cyberpunk vibe to match their logo. I also wanted to distribute the colors better by incorporating some black onto the hem. What do you think?

This is an interesting look, but it has a minor league feel to me. This would be absolutely perfect for their AHL or ECHL affiliates.

ST. LOUIS BLUES

For my home team, the main thing I wanted was a decent secondary logo to wear on their shoulders. I came up with an STL monogram inspired by the one the NL's Cardinals have. The S is a reverse trebel symbol, ending with a hockey stick-shaped L.

The third jersey is something they might use if they were ever invited to a Winter Classic. If the Blues were around during the '20s, I figured the name Blues would refer to the color of their jerseys, since blues music wasn't invented yet in those days. The bird on the logo is a bluebird, Missouri's state bird. C&C appreciated, as always.

Nice set. Like the faux back.

Big fan of the Blues alternate. Nice way to incorporate red without going overboard like the 90's set.

NASHVILLE PREDATORS

For the Music City Super Cats, I thought I'd try my hand at making an all-new logo for them. Here's a fresh take on the classic roundel, using an end-zone faceoff circle to contain the team name with the sabertooth lurking behind it. I thought the faceoff circle would be a good way to convey that the Preds are a hockey team without resorting to using hockey sticks like just about every other team.

The cat was hand-drawn by me. I know he needs some refining, but what do you think of the idea?

The predators concept is interesting, but it just doesn't have a major league feel to it (other than obviously needing a little cleaning up and whatnot)

Thanks for all your input. Here are a couple more concepts...

BOSTON BRUINS

This one is just a repost from my previous thread. From 1936 to 1948 the Bruins had the players number in front of their jerseys in leau of a logo. I just wanted to see how such a look would be received in today's NHL. They still have their classic circle logo, which is now on the shoulders.

CALGARY FLAMES

The first thing that had to go was the black. I was fine with it when it was introduced in the mid '90s, but now there's too much of it. The Flaming C should never be black, imo.

That's it for now C&C appreciated, as always.

At first I wasn't a huge fan of Calgary, but now it just works. Idk why, but there's a great balance of colors. I see you went back a bit to those 90s jerseys when white was there secondary color. Those were decent jerseys, just executed badly.

oohh like the flames.Predators logo needs a little help. and the bruins would look great, if the jersey wasn't modern. i say put the logo back, or change the jersey style

That Flames concept looks great. Big fan of the minimalism and how you made a rather unpopular design choice (diagonal stripes) look good

Calgary looks good. I really like that.

The Sabertooth for the Preds looks more like a Pokémon to me. I like the thought, I just think the logo needs to be cleaned up.

Boston looks good. Like the big front numbers.

I had a feeling you guys would like the Flames concept. I wouldn't call it minimalistic so much as I would call it using design elements effectively. I am a fan of minimalistic designs, but a more robust look can work as well if it's put together properly.

Here are a couple more gems from my previous thread...

MONTREAL CANADIENS

mtl_Habs.png

Only change I made to the home is change the hem so it matches the sleeves better. I made up a new road jersey inspired by a similar white jersey the Habs wore in the '30s. Then I had this idea for a third jersey for them. I know it looks similar to the jerseys worn by the Kings and Sharks in the Stadium Series, but I promise, I had this concept made long before that.

WINNIPEG JETS

win_Jets.png

I'm not a fan of the Jets' current logo, but I didn't want to rehash any of the old ones, so I made up something completely new. Also modeled after the RCAF's emblem, the maple leaf forms a W, while the jet's exaust makes a hockey stick-shaped J.

C&C, please and thank you.
