The NEW 'NHL'

Recommended Posts

Alright well, amidst economic uncertainty and with the possibility of leagues and teams folding or moving, I thought I would remake the NHL to what I wish it would be. 24 teams remain in the league; 12 in the Northern Conference; 12 in the Southern Conference; Nashville has moved to Winnipeg and took the moniker of the Manitoba Moose, Abbotsford has been named the new affiliate of the Canucks; Florida has moved to Quebec City to become the Champlains. Southern Conference to come after Christmas, but hopefully before 2009.

The Wild road sweater is what it should be, great work. Props also go out to the Ottawa alt, Sabres home and road, and the Canucks alt.

Awesome job Randy. Everything looks great. I love what you've done with Toronto, that is what they should be wearing.

A few suggestions

1) The Red Wings alternate needs a bigger red stroke around the numbers to mimic the thick stroke on the crest.

2) Something looks off with the Senators road jersey. I think the colors of the stripes should be flopped, thick black, thinner red to balance the dark black yolk.

3) The Canucks green looks to limey. It could be just the quantity of green that's causing the effect, but I'd check the color just to be sure.

Great job overall!

I think you have to name it the Taylor and Richard conferences, or the Cyclone and Rocket conferences.

I like everything, and I love that Canadiens alternate.

No Avalanche?

Your Senators alt should be their full time jersey!

Love the Sabres concepts. One thing about the Quebec Champlains concept: Basically a tweaked Columbus Clippers (AAA baseball) logo.

Alright so, I re-aligned the divisions. They aren't geographically correct, but I feel they would work good this way.

I don't know anything about hockey, so I wouldn't know why there isn't a Lemieux division. :P

I like all of these so far, especially the Wild white jersey, there's something about it that I really like.

I think most of the jerseys look nice, but why must every NHL redesign move my Panthers? I always look forward to seeing some Panthers sets and they always get moved away :cry:

Stop realignment.

Seriously, you merged the Kings and the Ducks, and you separated the Habs and Bruins. This fails on so many levels.

Pittsburgh, NY, Philly and NJ in a Southern Conference.

Using South and North as dividing for a league with most teams in north.

Not naming anything after Lemieux.

Sorry, but I do not like this alignment at all.

It's a concept buddy. That's the whole point of this forum, is it not?

The reason why some teams were dropped was because of attendance figures. Obviously not everyone will agree with the divisions, teams, etc.

Anaheim Kings

For some reason I saw the removal of anything to do with 'Ducks' coming. :rolleyes:

Why not something a bit more neutral, like the Southern California... Dukes?
