Wallpaper Wednesday I

As I've mentioned, today I'm launching a new series called Wallpaper Wednesday. In the middle of each week, I'll be showcasing some of the best desktop background artwork that's made its way to my inbox. I've already posted a few wallpapers over the last few days and one of the first was a great Bruins design.

It was created by a reader named Patrick, who is continuing a series based on the original. I've already posted the Oilers and today we have a couple of new ones. First, the Sabres.



I'm sure you Sabres fans love that he used your classic emblem. Also, the Flyers.



Now based on the recent poll, we know that the team with the largest percentage fan base visiting NHLToL is the Vancouver Canucks. So naturally, they've got to be included here. And I really like this wallpaper.



It's designed for a widescreen display yet at the same time compatible with standard screens. To those of you submitting wallpapers, I (and many others) would be forever grateful if you could work with this in mind.



This Thrashers wallpaper is also designed for widescreen, except in this case it's not completely compatible with standard monitors because of where the NHL logo is placed in the corner.

Finally, this one is absolutely stellar and while the focus isn't a logo, I can't pass up the chance to post it.



That's all for this week. If you sent something and I haven't posted it yet, don't worry, I'll get to it eventually. Thanks to everyone who has submitted!

Though I'm a Bruins fan, I'm also an avid Sabres Not Slug follower, so I did the wallpaper with the good'ol fashion logo so I hope you like it.

And if there's a certain team you want, just post it.

PS
I'm Patrick in case you were wondering.

Leafs background please, and would you mind using the former 3rd logo? It's way better than the current one.

I love the Wallpaper Wednesday idea!

I use a 1920x1200 res 24" monitor, and I've never found any decent NHL wallpapers. *hint hint*

Brian C said...

either the 'nucks, or 'canes. it's hard to get a picture with hockey below pennsylvania much less a wallpaper quality one.

husta said...

I would like to see a Preds wallpaper. I can't find any good ones out there. And to those making the wallpapers, great job!

The Sabres one is so simple and elegant. I simply don't know of too many people who could stare at a slug wallpaper without eventually bleeding from the eyes...

All the wallpapers were nicely done!

ali said...

At first I thought the wallpapers were a stupid Idea, but now I realize they are a great idea, though I am not sure how long they will last.

Hey snyperp can you please make an oilers one with the alternate jersey logo. I would really appreciate it.

godsave1thequeen said...

patrick, thanks for making the flyers one, I asked yesterday and I never imagined it would be done.

Go Downie!

Axis said...

the Sabres' buffalo doesn't have a red eye! Blasphemy!

Otherwise its pretty kewl.

Kenneth said...

Snyperp, could you make an Avs one, using the 3rd Logo(the foot)? thanks!

otdesigns said...

i'll try making a sabres one like you guys requested. Do you want it like same design as the Hossa one?

Snowman00000 said...

Patrick,
Great work with the Sabre's wallpaper! I set it as my background within seconds. Like everyone else has said, that Hossa design would be fantastic with ANY Sabre! Oh, and I second the 24" comment, I have to resize your wallpapers to fit my iMac. THANK AGAIN, and KEEP IT UP! Let's Go Buffalo!
