We know the Philadelphia Flyers have a new third jersey in the works, but we don't know much else. Should they try something in black again? Rob Giannone thinks so.
David Parkinson's MLB Collection went over so well, I just had to show off his Major League Soccer hockey sweaters. Check out the Western Conference today and come back next Sunday for the Eastern Conference.
(Click the images above to enlarge and view as a slideshow.)
David based his jerseys on local hockey teams, as follows:
- Seattle Sounders FC based on Seattle Thunderbirds (WHL)
- Portland Timbers based on Portland Winterhawks (WHL)
- Colorado Rapids based on Colorado Avalanche
- Vancouver Whitecaps FC based on Vancouver Canucks
- Chivas USA based on Los Angeles Kings
- LA Galaxy based on Los Angeles Kings
- San Jose Earthquakes based on San Jose Sharks
- FC Dallas based on Dallas Stars
- Real Salt Lake based on Utah Grizzlies (ECHL)
What do you think of these jerseys?
This week's Outdoor Saturday post takes a cue from the Minor League Week we just wrapped up. Dylan Wonka imagines the Buffalo Sabres wearing an old AHL jersey — from the Buffalo Bisons — perhaps for a future Winter Classic.
The Sabres have already worn a third jersey inspired by the script from the Bisons' bottle cap logo. Why not go all out? The Bisons were displaced in 1970 when the Sabres joined the NHL — much like what happened with the Manitoba Moose when the Jets came to Winnipeg.
Minor League Week comes to a close today with a couple of freaky creations. Tyler Kochan knows how to be creative and grab your attention. Those wild eyes would definitely make for a frightening Chicago Wolves jersey.
Meanwhile, the Albany Devils could be a lot more interesting than their NHL counterparts wearing something like this. Be sure to check out Tyler's home and road designs too.
The talented Nick Burton is always good for a special concept series. While not strictly a minor league, he's tackling a WHA Revival as Minor League Week winds down. This four-part series will play out over the coming Thursdays and we begin with the Houston Aeros.
Nick's take on the Vancouver Blazers feels like a mashup between the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Millionaires, but it's a pretty solid set.
We wrap up Part 1 with one of the teams that made the transition to the NHL when the WHA shut down in 1979. If the team were still around today, perhaps they'd look something like this.
Next week we'll see Nick's take on another trio of WHA franchises.
