  1. So the Canucks change their uniforms for the first time in 12 years, it being the only major uniform change of the entire season and we're all forbidden from talking about it on a message board where we discuss uniform changes. What a farce. Unfair? Yeah, that's putting it mildly. How would you like it if their was a ban on Maple Leafs talk the season they got rid of the Ballard Leaf...
  2. The Blackhawks logo was ten years old once... Time has nothing to do with my argument, it's perfectly acceptable for logos to contain colours not found anywhere else on the jersey. The Canucks and Blackhawks are just two examples.
  3. Should the Blackhawks eliminate tan/brown from their logo? What about orange or the blue stitching around the feathers? Those three colours aren't found anywhere on their striping configuration or secondary logos and those jerseys are often regarded as the leagues best. You can't really classify silver as an additional colour anyways. It's just white with a darker tint and a metallic sheen. The Anaheim Ducks have a silver outline around their logo but I would never consider silver as part of their official palette. As for the navy? Besides essentially just being a darker blue, it's really the only accurate way to depict an Orca without resorting to black. A Royal blue Orca would be passable, don't get me wrong, I just think navy does a better job.
  4. I prefer McCarthy's version but still don't see why the lack of green on their current logo is an issue let alone a deal-breaker. The numbers don't contain any green, nor did they on any of the team's original blue and green uniforms, so why must the main logo? The stripes contain more than enough green to balance the uniform and the way the Orca is presently coloured has its benefits as well. Navy is great way to depict the whale without having to taint the palette with black and the metallic silver would be missed if it was eliminated all-together as it makes the art style even more eye-catching.
  5. Best colours in the league . Perhaps you're right. If the main crest was the only instance of blue and green touching it could result in a neat effect. I'd love to see how your concept looks embroidered on the current jerseys.
  6. ^ If there was a way that logo could be configured where the blue and green don't touch, I'd be all for it. Calgary's retros are overrated. They need a striping configuration that matches and a little bit of black for contrast. What they had from 2004-2007 is a vastly superior look even if it was a little black-heavy.
  7. Like their home and roads. The level of incompetence shown by them and the Flames is astounding. Two of the worst Edge designs and they actually took the time to convert them over to the Adizero template.
  8. I don't get how anyone can think these uniforms are bad. The team had one of the better uniforms during the Edge rollout even with the script on the front. I like how much cleaner they look without it and I particularly like how the white Stick and Rink stands out on the blue homes. The lack of green on the main crest doesn't bother me in the slightest because the stripes contain enough of the colour to balance the uniform. The numbers don't have any green so it's not as if all three colours need to be present everywhere. This is a serious, traditional and beautiful uniform. The road whites aren't as good but that's the case for most teams anyways. I know people on here are tired of hearing about the Canucks but it is the first season of a uniform change so I think we should be able to comment on their new look without it turning into a Johnny Canuck vs Orca flame-war.
  9. Compliments aside, making the thin stripes white would have improved the jersey exponentially. As would putting in the V's from the inaugural look.
  10. I still think green and blue shouldn't touch but these have certainly grown on me. There were times during tonight's game where I could really appreciate the new look on it's own merits. The collar sucks but so do most instances of the Adidas treatment. I don't get why they can't make a new version where the outer part isn't as thick.
  11. Wearing the retro's at home for the playoffs last year got people hopeful but then the team said there were no future plans for a switch. Managements insistence on keeping one of the biggest downgrades to come out the Edge era is infuriating.
  12. The Orca isn't there to represent a Canuck. No more than the Hub on Boston's logo is there to represent a Bruin.
  13. If the logo was just an Orca whale by itself you'd have a point. The name is represented by the 'C,' the Orca is there to represent the region.
  14. Except the current identity doesn't misrepresent the team at all. 'Canuck' is a slang term for Canadian which limits the options either a letter or a literal depiction of a Canadian person. You certainly could go with a lumberjack but not all lumberjack's are Canadian and I doubt they were what was in mind when the term 'Canuck' was coined. The team went with a letter that incorporates Orca imagery in a regionally evocative art style. They represent their namesake in the exact same way the much praised Canadien's logo does.
  15. It's funny how the Canuck's identity gets so much flak for not depicting their namesake while the Millionaires identity gets a free pass for doing the same. They don't even acknowledge their name with a letter but somehow escape the consternation the Canucks get.
