Hi long time no posting, Alan here and back on the train here at AJH HJA. It’s been months since my last post here let’s just say the outside of the concept world was a roller coaster for me, from pushing the sale of my late grandma’s house witch in mid July the house is sold, to working extra hours at my workplace. But now everything is now calm for now so let’s get a ranting shall we.
Penguins back to back!
Well for the first time since the Wings did it in 97-98, the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup two years in a row! It’s was an unthinkable thing I mean think about it from addition of Nashville Predators, Atlanta Thrashers (now Winnipeg Jets,) Minnesota Wild, and Columbus Blue Jackets to make it a 30-team league. To the Salary Cap factor, you would’ve thought that there would never be a team winning the cup back to back but the Pens did it.
NHL’s new uniforms
Well we all got to see new uniforms at this year’s NHL draft witch later see the rest. I’m going keep this short and sweet.
Winner: Pittsburgh Penguins for keeping the same design.
Some what a winner: Colorado Avalanche for bringing back their old-style design.
Almost an upgrade winner: San Jose Sharks, they had a chance to put those sweet alternate logos on the front to go along with their new shoulder patch.
Upgrade that didn’t go well to me: Edmonton Oilers, really? Three thin lines on both arms and hem.
Bad upgrade: Nashville Predators, I miss their last year set.
Big time “Loser!”: Ottawa Senators, you guys made news about rebrand and stuff but no you guys keep that stupid Reebok cookie cutter. Come on Sens!
My NHL Adidas concept series update
It’s official like I said from the top I finally got the series done as of right now I’m uploading them on my DeviantArt page one a day. But you’re thinking am I’m going to send my concepts to HJC? I will but unlike my format of sending 1 concept per week, I’m going to send all of them, it kind of got to the point that with my work schedule at high octane I’ll more likely miss a week so sending all my concepts is the only way to go. It’ll either wow them or blind the writer’s eyes (just kidding) we’ll see the outcome soon. As for posting them on this site it’ll be once a week starting September 30th.
Well my rant is done, time for concepts, request concepts if you look the “S” on the concept that means I got not 1, but 2 request concepts made by as always John O. this one is the Buffalo Sabres one I was O.K. with, but the other I had to bite my tongue on it. Let’s get to them.
Buffalo Sabres good old goat head era both logos, and colors on a buff slug design with J-Log razor edge sans small caps with two trims on both nameplate and numbers.
This one I really had to bite my tongue the buff slug logo or as I call them Trump’s hairpiece, with their colors on the jersey design based on the goat head era. Just like the first one the font for both nameplate and numbers is J-Log razor edge sans small caps.
Well that’s all I got all for today, see you all later on Sept 30th or if I get another John O’s concept request soon, as speaking of John, his home Puerto Rico along with other country are bracing for the worst from Hurricane Irma, my thoughts and prayers going out to there stay safe everyone. Until then, later.
