Canada III: Calgary & Edmonton

Just 46 more hours now until I first set foot on Canadian soil. But before I go, it's my duty to continue to share the concept art that many of you have been so gracious to send in. Continuing with the Canada theme we're visiting the province of Alberta tonight on our way to BC.

So then. The horse with the flaming nostrils. I always liked him. Here he is on red.

It suits his apparent rage. And for a refreshing change of pace, the white Flaming C on a black sweater.

Doesn't really say fire to me somehow.

Nor does it work in white. I'm sorry but I think the Flames by nature have to be a red team.

So with that in mind, here's a new idea based on an old concept.

There are also white and black versions of that design.

And this next one just looks like a hoodie to me.

To finish this out we've got a couple of Oilers concepts. The black around the arms makes this one interesting.

Needs something for contrast around the logo which is outlined in blue. And this final set I thought was really sharp. No reason a professional hockey club shouldn't look that good.

That's a nice uniform. But now I've got to put the final touches on packing, go to work tomorrow and then prepare myself for seven hours of flying across the North American continent. Fun stuff.

I'm a big fan of the flaming horse jersey.

I'm not thrilled with the striping on that one, but I love the flaming horse on a red jersey...they should definitely go with that.

The last Oilers concept is really nice. MUCH better then what they have now.

I love the red Flames concept with the more conservative look. The black yokes and the absence of white makes the sweater look more "flaming-hot". Nice touch to put the traditional vertical piping on the side of the pants. I, however, would have added the flaming horse on the shoulders and I would like to see the Flames wear red helmets with their red sweaters. Overall, nice job!

I really like the last Edmonton set. It would be nice to the Oilers look like they are wearing something other than pajama tops. I have always liked the flaming horse for the Flames. Have a great trip!

The last Oilers set is pretty good! I'm not sure about the white shoulders on the dark jersey, though.

The Oilers need to reintroduce orange to their scheme, that last Oiler set looks too much like the old Sabres jerseys.

I absolutely love that last Oilers concept, the guy that made it should definitely send it to the organization! I think I would even buy that one (not being an Oilers fan) because it's absolutely one of the best looking uniforms I've ever seen!

Why use a picture of Rod Pelley of the NJ Devils for the Calgary example?

Just wondering

That Harnock jersey is simply awesome! As a die hard oilers fan, I'll take one of each in Pro cuts! Absolutely awesome!
