Jersey Swap - Stanley Cup Final Edition (Update: 2008/2009)

Recommended Posts

The basic premise is, what would each Stanley Cup Final match-up look like if the teams swapped logos and jersey designs. In most cases, I tried to use elements from the Team 1's past to recreate the logos of Team 2. If a color is shared by the two teams, it remained unchanged even if the teams use them differently (primary vs secondary).

 

I almost posted this tread during last year's Final, but I hadn't finished enough of the uniforms. Now I just want to post what I have and hopefully finish the older ones along the way.

 

2017 - Nashville Predators vs Pittsburgh Penguins

This is strangely good. First off, the logos are accurate, but something about Pittsburgh is off to me, but I can't put my finger on it. Nashville's is good, but it's just the old logo they had. The uniforms are great, but I guess I'm not a fan of Nashville's uniforms. I'm love all the small details, like changing "NASHVILLE" on the collar to "PITTSBURGH". Great job overall!

It's probably the shape or white neck that's weird with Pittsburgh. I wanted some additional detail so I added part of the RoboPen to make it look more realistic.

Thanks!

2016 - San Jose Sharks vs Pittsburgh Penguins

It may be hard to tell the difference, but the teal on the black jersey is the brighter teal used by the Sharks in their early days.

I attempted to make a Vegas gold set, but their was very little contrast. The shoulder logo is just the penguin free from the triangle.

I think it'd be a nice touch to have the Penguins' SJ-style white jersey to use Vegas Gold instead of Pittsburgh Gold, no matter the contrast, for the sake of greater accuracy (seeing as they wore their alternate at the time at home and the original edge away). Part of the fun of identity swaps is seeing when certain swaps don't work and why.

That black with real trim jersey is nice. I'd love to see it with the actual sharks logo. I'd also like to see it with a teal body with black trim.

 

Please continue this finalist concept series.

That Sharks home is a beaut, I know this isn't part of the theme, but I would love to see the road version.

I'll probably make these alternative designs soon, just don't have time right now. Stay tuned for them though!

Another home run. Blackhawks actually look really good, although the Chicago on the away looks kind of forced even though that's not your fault. The Hawks striping really looks decent for TB, although the logo doesn't quite work for me. Maybe do like a lightning god profile instead? Good job all around though.

 

BTW Id love to help you tackle a few of these if you'd have me, if you're having difficulty with one or if you'd just like another set of hands. Totally fine if you want to keep this solo though.

Not gonna lie the Blackhawks uniforms really look weird LOL.  Not a fault to you at all, just with the jersey design you were forced to use with the series.  However, your execution with this series fantastic.  Well done!

Tampa's logo was tough. Since I'm trying not to use too many outside elements for the main logos, my best bet was to try and recreate the feathers with lightning bolts. I'm still not quite satisfied with the end result. I have most of the sets completed from 1980 til now, although some need some tweaks, so thanks for the offer, but there's not a lot left. If you'd like to come up with some alternative logos like the lightning logo you suggested for this thread or on a separate one, feel free!

I'll piggyback off everyone else and say these are all fantastic. Are you going to do this for every year or a few? Doing all 98 years might be too much, but why not?:D

 

I have the jersey designs going back to the start of the expansion era, but most still need logos and numbers. As far as O6 era, we'll see! There should be a fair amount of repeated match-ups.

2014 - New York Rangers vs Los Angeles Kings

 

593470677ea77_NYRangers2014LogoNew.png.dde17e16ed4bf15b7a88f61cfaedfc89.png    5934706a08840_LA2014Logo.png.e2b43ec8ae48dc79b57f71279aae8173.png

Both of these logos are from my first concept thread NHL Logo Mash-ups/Combinations.

I realized with LA that if I do a straight 1 color for 1 color swap, the combinations aren't great. If the swapped colors match the Rangers set, where blue replaces black and red replaces silver, you get this.

Obviously, the gray pants aren't ideal. So, here's what it looks like if black replaces red and silver replaces blue. This one comes with a silver helmet, the pants are better.

Finally, keeping traditional hockey aesthetics in tact, a primarily black set with black pants.

I can't be the only one thats seeing the Penguins jerseys where the Rangers should be.

 

I also can't be the only one who would have absolutely no problem with the Kings using that 3rd option full time irl. Those look epic, great job!

The Kings in diagonal workmark is a thing of absolute beauty. That needs to be a real thing. Something about that font really works diagonally.
