Chicago Needs Another Outdoor Game

Lately, the outdoor concepts haven't really been coming in like they used to. It's getting hard to dedicate a day every week to the idea. Maybe the novelty has worn off. Maybe the original ideas are dwindling. I don't know. So I wrote the headline above and posted this old concept from Matt Madore below thinking one of two things will happen:

  1. Artists will be so annoyed that they'll start designing new Winter Classic and Stadium Series concepts again just to prove how wrong that statement is.
  2. Artists will shrug and move along. No new outdoor concepts will come in and I will see that it's time to retire the Outdoor Saturday series for a while. (In that case, feel free to suggest a new Saturday series!)

Without further ado, who's excited about seeing the Blackhawks finally playing in the NHL Stadium Series again next season?!

Mighty Stadium Throwback

For this Outdoor Saturday, Matt Madore envisions the Ducks in 20-year-old throwback-inspired sweater for a future Stadium Series game. It could work... right?

Mighty Forever

Matt Madore proposes bringing the "Mighty" back to the Ducks uniforms while keeping their modern colors. Given the existing third jersey, this may not be such a far-fetched idea anymore.

Stadium Pens

Matt Madore sent this in prior to the Pens' Stadium Series game against Chicago in 2014, but it stills seems to be a valid option even this season — especially with that crest!

Madore's Pacific

It's the finale of Matt Madore's Monday series in which he's redesigned all 30 NHL team uniforms for the league's upcoming centennial season. What do you think of the Pacific Division?
