Today, the Penguins and Blackhawks are taking it outside. But on this Outdoor Saturday, we're rolling the clock back to the big game in New York. Brendan Klein thinks a flashback to the '90s would've better suited the Rangers and Islanders. Do you?

As the Olympics end, so ends our week of concepts centered around countries that didn't send hockey teams to Sochi. It's inspired a lot of people to submit artwork! Today we start with Brendan Klein who envisions this look for the smallest independent nation, Vatican City.
David Parkinson gives us our first South American team of the week with his take on hockey uniforms for Argentina. They're pretty sharp, actually!
Finally, Hunter Nordhauser takes us all the way to the frozen shores of Greenland.
If you submitted a concept that didn't get posted this week, don't fret. The International Sunday series will continue on so I can show off more of the great work everyone has sent in.
This has been one of the most popular theme weeks the Concepts page has ever hosted. They just keep rolling in so I figured I'd extend the fun into this weekend of critical Olympic hockey games.
One continent we didn't get to earlier in the week was Asia. Three artists have taken care of that. D'Arcy Murphy gets us started with Team Kazakhstan. He was inspired by the country's colorful flag.
Next we have a couple of newcomers. Eli Swanson heads south to Afghanistan for this one. He was also inspired by a national flag. And truth be told, this set wouldn't have looked terribly out of place in Sochi.
Finally, Parth Shah tackles his native India for this jersey. He's the first to be featured on the site using the new IceGear template. What do you think of these three national team uniforms?
Check back tomorrow for one final set of Olympic jerseys from countries we didn't see in Sochi.
This week we're looking at concepts for nations that are not playing Olympic hockey in Sochi. Today, we head to the British Isles where Matt McElroy put together this set for Ireland. It's no surprise the Irish aren't participating. The highest they've ever been ranked by the IIHF is 40th. (And they once lost a game to Romania 22-0. A hockey game.)
David Parkinson takes us across the Irish Sea for a set of British uniforms. The crest is a little hard to see over the chest stripe, but I like the use of Nike's new shoulder embellishments. What do you think of these two sets?
Tonight, the AHL's best players face Färjestad BK of the Swedish Hockey League in the first-of-its-kind AHL All-Star Classic, hosted by the St. John's IceCaps. Robb Clarke thought the teams might look good in these jerseys. What do you think?
