Original Six Showdown, Part 3

I don't usually like to feature the same artist on back-to-back days, but we need to wrap up Nick Burton's Throwback Thursday miniseries this morning. The final installment features 2014's Winter Classic opponents from Toronto and Detroit.

What's in Store in St. Louis

On Monday, I posted a graphic depicting the design of the new home jersey the St. Louis Blues have on the way. Today we're looking at a couple of concept artists' interpretations of what the white road version make look like.

We start with Nick Burton who seems to have pretty much nailed it. The only thing he's missing is the hanger effect design on the collar.

That's where Thierry Dick comes in. He shares not only his take on a road jersey but also his ideal set of Blues sweaters. But I have to be honest when I say those feel a little more Buffalo than St. Louis to me. Though it is a fine line given the similar color palettes.

This last design from newcomer Justin Evans was sent in prior to Monday's post but I thought you might like to see it just the same. This is the Blues jersey he'd like to see.

How to Fix the Sharks

The Sharks ruined their primary jerseys last year by dumping the waist striping. Bastian Schmülling proposes a simple fix that also ditches the burnt orange accents. Who's on board?

Blowing in the Wind

As we eagerly anticipate the forthcoming throwback third jersey from Pittsburgh, Rob Sulava offers up a concept that mixes several eras of Penguins history — including an updated version of the skating penguin that once wore a scarf.

Belfast Giants

Our International Sunday series has returned, though slightly modified. Instead of featuring national teams from around the world, we're looking at individual clubs from various leagues outside North America.

Today's set from David Pooley takes us to the U.K.'s Elite Ice Hockey League — home of the Belfast Giants. The Giants, in fact, are the EIHL's 2014 champions, as you can see in this photo meant to illustrate their existing uniforms.
