Inspired by Pirates

Dylan Nowak is proposing a couple of Penguins jerseys inspired by the old Pittsburgh Pirates. I couldn't see the Pens doing this full time, but maybe for a special event — such as the 90th anniversary of the Pirates' founding, which just happens to be this year.

New Jersey?

With Lou Lamoriello suddenly out of the picture in New Jersey, is it possible the Devils could now make room for a new jersey? (Unavoidable wordplay.) Consider that the team's incoming GM previously ran a club that's had three different alternate uniforms in the last four years. In any event, what do you think of the New Jersey third proposed here by Tristan Mani?

Sound of Thunder

It's Sunday so our focus today is on the minor leagues, but I can't help feeling like the inevitable Seattle NHL team should adopt the Thunderbirds moniker. They'd look good in these jerseys by Jake Miller, wouldn't they?

Legault's Expansion III

For a few weeks I'm handing Saturday over to Christian Legault for his NHL expansion series. Kansas City may currently lack any parties interested in owning an NHL team, but it doesn't lack a history of NHL participation. Christian reimagines the Scouts as a future expansion club.

Elbertson Double Freak Out

This colorful week of concept couplings wraps up today with the two Freak Out Friday entries from John Elbertson, starting with a Kings jersey inspired by so many designs from the past.

This Hurricanes set borrows its color palette from the local university.
