    NHL 2018-19

    Calgary's red and yellow-gold look is timeless and distinctive. The Flames became the NHL's second all-red team after Detroit when Atlanta first joined the league in '72. Their uniform match-ups vs other clubs looked great on TV and would look great in HD. Time to promote them to full-time and relegate black to alternate status.

    Chicago was rated #1 in the NHL's 25 all-time best uniforms as voted by fans. They have had the yellow C with the crossed stone hammers shoulder patch for decades. Originally, the C logo used to be on their arm stripes, which likely inspired the white V's on the Canucks' original timeless sweater. Therefore, the Blackhawks are the pioneers of secondary logos, followed by the Bruins' growling bear shoulder patch in the mid-late 70's.
  3. Great job by Canucks Sports & Entertainment. The logo and colours work beautifully together and the tribute to BC's First Nations makes it look first-class. Black/Night Sky as the primary dark colour and the logo's streaking lines has a bit of the Canucks' Flying Skate flavour. Absolutely love it.

    Calgary Flames Go Retro For New Alternate Uniform

    Always loved the Flames originals. With quite a few red and black teams, the Flames own red and yellow-gold. Time to bring back their original set as the permanent primary while the 2004 black Flaming C uniform could be used as a future alternate.

    I totally disagree. The Devils owned red and forest/dark green. Red and black with black helmets is the Blackhawks' look. However, if the Devils ever returned to their red and dark green template but with black in place of the green, I would be more accepting to it. Ever since the switch to black trim, there has also been less red and more black on the uniforms, ie. the red yokes on the whites and the red helmets changed to black. The stripe-less black pants became another boring generic look.

    Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    Are the Browns' stripe-less helmets new or temporary? That looks terrible. Unless the helmet logo consists of wings, horn, a stretched logo from the back, the best helmets have stripes.

    Vancouver Canucks Stop Use of Logo By Lacrosse Team

    The Canucks are clearly in the right. It's their trademark. I'm not a fan with the way their ownership has conducted themselves over the years, especially concerning Trevor Linden's recent departure, but that's besides the point. The club is only asking for the jerseys back. The Canucks are not dragging an innocent family into court and suing them for every nickel. No harm was intended from either side.

    Canucks Bringing Back the Flying Skate Uniforms in 2020

    That is one beautiful uniform. However, there is only one shoulder patch that is needed on this set and it should've been added from Day One: Johnny Canuck. Left-skating JC on the left shoulder and right-skating JC on the right shoulder. When visiting the likes of MSG, Boston or Philadelphia and opposing fans abruptly ask, "What the puck is a Canuck??!", all I have to do is proudly point to the shoulder patches.

    At least for the 50th anniversary season. However, I would keep the Skate for just 2-3 throwback games per season.

    Canucks Bringing Back the Flying Skate Uniforms in 2020

    Here's what the Canucks need to do for the 50th anniversary and onward: 1a. Original Stick In Rink uniforms w/white V's on the sleeves as the primary set with a few upgrades, especially on the blues. Add the skating Johnny Canuck as a shoulder patch - left-skating JC on the left shoulder, right-skating JC on the right shoulder. 1b. Skating Johnny Canuck in or without a roundel on the current template. Change font back to block style. Put original SIR on shoulders. Add green trim to font and collar. 2a. Johnny Canuck as a regular alternate green jersey by taking an updated blue jersey and reversing the green and blue. Stick In Rink on the shoulders. 2b. Blue classic Stick In Rink with original template and white V's on arms. Skating JC on the shoulders. 3. '94 black Skate jersey as a regular throwback 2-3 games per season. Add recoloured Stick In Rink(left) and Johnny Canuck(right) as shoulder patches - good way to merge the brands under the Canuck brand umbrella. There. Done. All the popular and would-be-popular jerseys in one complete set.

    Inter Miami FC Reveals Logo, MLS Expansion Club for 2020

    If it weren't for the NASL, there most likely wouldn't be an MLS. The league, itself, may have failed, but not its legacy of several teams including the Whitecaps, Sounders, Timbers, Earthquakes, Cosmos and Rowdies.

    I don't get all the criticism of the Skate logo. I know it's busy but if you look at it and compare it to the likes of Oilers and original Jets(team name workmark) and the Flyers and Blues(streaking lines), there are similarities. The colours are bold and blend very nicely together and it represents the speed of hockey. The problem with the Skate is that it's not the original Canucks crest and it was inspired by lame sports psychology.

    Inter Miami FC Reveals Logo, MLS Expansion Club for 2020

    I will take the Miami Strikers in red and gold hooped shirts and black shorts. Getting sick and tired of the generic Euro brands.

    The 50th anniversary will be based on the actual birth of the franchise - how many years have the Canucks been in the NHL, not how many seasons played.

    The Canucks' true identity is the classic Stick In Rink with Johnny Canuck in blue, green and white. The black, yellow and red Skate is their interim and novelty look. The corporate orca is just a longtime tresspasser.
