    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    The Lightning have been bland personified in the Yzerman era.

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    Would these qualify as bland? They're certainly empty looking but the piping and half-stripes just might push them from bland territory to retina searingly awful.

    Simple? Sure. Bland? No. Never should have got rid of this set.

    That's easy. I don't know why their old logo is on this picture but it serves as a nice reminder to when they had some character.

    I didn't think the jerseys were great overall (mostly because of the baseball script) but I thought the way the last Mighty Ducks alternate based their striping off duck feathers was absolute genius. I would love to see the Ducks go with the kind of logo 'SFGiants58' was advocating and pair it with similar striping.

    This is a great idea. Their namesake is loaded with potential and it's safe to say they haven't reached it. This is exactly how I feel about their current primary. I liked it at first, because it was such an improvement over the script, but now it seems as dated as their swooshing side panels.

    That logo looks surprisingly good on a Navy background. Most are predicting a return of the previous alternate but I'm holding out hope we'll see something similar but with this logo in place of the Rockies recolour.

    Your wishlist alternate for Anaheim needs to become their full time look. Beautiful combination of eras.

    You're mistaking missing the point with not thinking it was strong enough to address. They can call the team "le Club de hockey Canadien" but to 99.9% of the world they're the Montreal Canadiens. You love putting words in peoples mouths. Where did I say people have forgot about him? I'm saying he hasn't been used as a primary or even secondary logo in the entire duration of the franchise and is therefore not a good representation of their history. If being a visible part of a brand is only serving as a helmet logo for an alternate, sure. Of course the comparison is superficial, I was talking about the VISUAL way in which they were rendered. I wasn't talking about their relation to history or how many Stanley Cups they have or haven't been associated with. They are both cartoon-ish, over-the-top, ultra-literal representations of their respective team's namesakes that are simply too detailed to serve as an effective primary logo. That is the common thread which warrants the comparison, period. Yeah, enough to serve as the helmet logo on an alternate... Which Canucks uniform is he on now? Oh that's right, none. The guy who mistakes the Haida Art style for jumping on the 90's bandwagon wants to talk about misplaced points about 90's logos? That's hilarious.

    Huh? How does a logo the team hasn't used in its 47 years in the NHL "honour the teams history?" Well they didn't so that point is moot. Just like they didn't go with a red, white and blue colour scheme. Not arguing that but it doesn't change the fact that both logos are rendered in the typical cartoonish, 90's aesthetic. It also doesn't change the fact that full-bodied-Johnny would be a horrible fit on their classic striping, even more so than the Orca and script. How? When did I ever bring up the four stanley cups? I simply compared the manner in which the logos rendered. 10 Stanley cups each wouldn't change the fact that both logos are dated, minor league and not primary material. The Orca does represent the city (and the west coast in general) with it's Haida art style. Hence the "C" being a better choice for the letter. A Canuck and a Canadien are both fairly ambiguous namesakes that don't require literal representations. On both the Orca and the "CH" they are represented by a letter and I see nothing wrong with that. I'd also like to point out that the Canadiens logo has no letter representing Montreal. According to your logic, that makes it a bad monogram logo.

    Funny how nobody s on the Bruins for not depicting a bear on their primary logo... It's perfectly fine for them to use a letter that pays homage to the city instead of the namesake but when the Canucks do the exact same thing with the Orca it's seen as some affront to sports branding.

    Simple is effective and I think forming a C with a rink and hockey stick is a hell of a lot more clever than an H inside a C. It's bold, has historical precedence and looks great on their current template, which should never change again. I don't get the hate. \

    I don't think it's the best logo they've ever had but I'm glad someone pointed out that it wasn't intended to jump the "agressive, 90's, Xtreme" bandwagon. It was simply illustrated in the style of Haida art.
