BTW I don't think you designed the floral pattern correctly, they are supposed to be going in opposite directions to each other and the pattern on the back doesn't follow the ones on the front. 

 

Thanks for the observation! For some reason, I'm unable to find a 2D, Paint-friendly version of VGK's floral pattern, so that's the best thing that I can do.

 

Moving on from Vegas, I wanna know which other teams should I update. I'm still in the process of conceptualizing how my Lightning concept shall look like.

The teams that stick out to me that could use a revision are the stars and caps home and roads. I felt the stars logo didn't work well with the striping pattern as it was not aligning correctly. The caps jerseys are just kind of boring. To me the most interesting part is the eagle shoulder patch, but it looks out of place on a generally static looking jersey.

Now that I looked upon Stars' home and road concepts, I thought these should have redesigned. I'll try to fix them.

 

As for the Capitals, I'm already satisfied with the design, since I wanted the home and road jerseys to have a bit of a throwback flavor. However, I might take design suggestions for those jerseys.

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING

 

And for the final team for this series (or is it?), I added more black, just the way it's supposed to be. The simple design won't work in this case, so I devised a different striping for the home and road jerseys, mimicking thunderbolts. The home jersey is still blue, though.

 

The alternate jersey was inspired by the Lightning's 2022 Stadium Series jersey, but added more outlines to the thunderbolts. And instead of using the same number font from that particular jersey, I used the font from their inaugural jerseys.

 

The Reverse Retro is essentially a silver version of the team's Bolts alternate from 2008 to 2014. This time, though, blue helmet and pants are paired with this one.

This is the design I should've gone with in the first place. I went with the Stars' starry uniform design and recolored it accordingly. The pants have also changed to the one from my alternate uniform concept.

Though I said before that I'm satisfied with my home and road uniform concepts for the Caps, I thought to myself, "what if I apply the design from my alternate uniform?" Well, here ya' go.

 

Side note: the red jersey is now paired with a navy blue helmet instead of a red one.

I wanted to revise my Reverse Retro concept for the Maple Leafs, so I went with the Mats Sundin-era uniform design (with block numbers instead of the same font for the NOB) and recolored in green and cream (still a tribute to the St. Pats). Let me know which is better, the first one or this one.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

 

First of all, thanks to everyone who engaged in this series, may it be via emoji reactions or comments.

 

After doing all 32 current teams, I'm about to close out this series. But a thought came to my mind: what if I'll create concepts for defunct/former NHL teams? And so, I thought I should give it a shot. So yes, this series is not yet over!

 

In fact, I already created my concept uniforms for the Thrashers and the Nordiques, and I'll post them in the coming days. So, stay tuned, everybody!

 

Also, let me know which team should I do next.

ATLANTA THRASHERS

 

TBH, I actually liked the Thrashers' overall identity, from the logos to the uniforms—except for the asymmetrical design. This time, I'm giving these a fresh, new look that doesn't stray away that much from the originals. My design for the home and road jerseys are a mashup of the team's primary jersey designs over the years.

 

The alternate jersey is a combination of their final alternate jersey and the concept made by @StevenGrant94 in his "What If?" series.

 

Finally, the Reverse Retro that I conceptualized is an ice blue version of the team's original white jersey. You might have observed that there's no asymmetrical design among my jerseys, and that's because it's the only design that I dislike. Yeah, it's unique, but I'm not a fan of that.

QUEBEC NORDIQUES

 

Back in 1995, the Northmen avoided a redesign that screams 90's and won't be a fan-favorite at the time. However, it's at the expense of becoming the Colorado Avalanche. In this series, I retained the Nordiques' classic blue-and-red scheme, but completely reinvented the uniforms. The overall design is a mashup of the failed redesigned jerseys and their uniforms from 1972 to 1975. While their long-time jersey design is an instant classic, I'm not considering myself a fan of it.

 

I get to be more playful with the alternate uniform, and what I came up with is something that might garner mixed reactions. Everything that's red is replaced with black (shoutout once again to @StevenGrant94 for the inspiration), and the white striping is based from Quebec City's flag (also a basis for the Quebec Remparts' jerseys).

 

Finally, we have the Reverse Retro, which is just the aforementioned failed redesigned uniform, but in the classic blue-and-red scheme with black added for good measure. Yeah, even the husky logo is included.

Aw, you say that like it's a bad thing :D 

 

Naw, this is what it's supposed to be meant: I just thought that there would have been a fan backlash with the Nordiques redesign in the 90's, but I also thought that fans in Quebec City are still not happy with the relocation to Denver. Therefore, they were at the losing end in either way, and I wish that Quebec City will have their own full-time NHL team in the future because they deserve one, especially the city now has a NHL-quality arena that was opened 20 years since the relocation. But yeah, thanks for pointing that out, I'll be careful at proving a certain point.

Hampton Roads Rhinos. It was an absolute travesty that this masterpiece never saw the ice.

 

I'll admit, I'm surprised with this choice, but I'll try to give justice to the Rhinos.
