  1. You are totally right. What really boggles my mind is they have now abandoned this uniform not once, but now 2 times. When you see fans wearing this blue jersey side by side with another wearing the current orange jersey, you question why they would ditch this classic blue jersey.
  2. Whatever the end up doing for the name, we know they will remain green and gold. Just hope they make the right choice and drop the black trim they have been using on the helmet striping and number shadow. No more black trim gets my vote.
  3. Reasons to love Elks as a name: -Elks name has some history attached to it. The Edmonton Elks played in the 1922 Grey Cup. -Can keep the EE logo. -Plenty of Elk in Alberta. Fits the region. -Team name not commonly used. Keeping with feature of how CFL teams have quirky names. -The name feels just so Canadian it fits. -Imagine the 3rd uniform helmet with antlers on it! That could be damn awesome. Better than the gigantic EE they have on the helmet now when they wear their thirds. --------------------------- When I hear Express as an option, I cringe. It reminds me of a couple of teams in the USFL and AAF. A fill in the blank team name for the next start up football league.
  4. True. Us Canuck fans have the luxury of different fashion options when sporting Canucks gear. Has been blue and green the last 13 years and I think (hope) it will remain that way. Can wear different colours when wearing alternate throwbacks. I think the Canucks want to keep a consistent look now instead of being the poster child for a team that radically changes uniforms like in the past.
  5. This is a difficult situation. I have always loved my hometown teams and remain loyal. Though I like some teams more than others I cannot get on board with being a huge fan for teams elsewhere. Though I live in Vancouver now, I lived basically the other half of my life to this point in Regina. So when it comes to CFL, junior hockey, university sports - I still am a loyal fan of the teams from Regina. That will never change. However, for sports that we did not have back there that have teams in Vancouver, I have grown into a big fan of my new hometown teams (except not the Grizzlies anymore because it does not even feel like the same team). So love teams in my city such as the Whitecaps and Canadians but could never be a BC Lions or Vancouver Giants fan. It seems confusing but feels right to me. So you know what my answer is Johnny. You must stay a Canucks fan! Blue and green for life! Do what feels right, see how it goes. You will probably really like the Kraken as time continues. A team destined to become a huge rival for the Canucks.
  6. It's OK. Elks can be used. I mean, isn't Maple Leaves the plural of Maple Leaf?
  7. I am a definite proponent for Elks. For reasons mentioned in first post. Elks is the best option.
  8. Probably. Would not be the first time for the playoffs right? I am hoping that it is a permanent profile picture change rather than just for playoffs. Like they should go back to the retro reds and whites as the permanent jerseys for 2020-21.
  9. Back-to-back Memorial Cup champion Medicine Hat Tigers. Won in 1987 wearing Cooperalls: Were champs again in 1988. Changed to short pants and socks:
  10. How about some major junior hockey ones. Rouyn-Noranda Huskies won last year's Memorial Cup wearing this: Played with new uniforms this year. They decided to do a redesign with switch to CCM Quicklite:
  11. John Ducey Park/Telus Field in Edmonton known for turf infield and grass outfield. http://www.littleballparks.com/Stadium/2004/Edmonton/Edmonton.htm
  12. Here is a list of the 10 cities in the running for 2 spots. Does depend on the criteria they listed including what local government will allow. Edmonton has been pushing hard. I know the BC premier has been pushing hard to get Vancouver as a hub city too, but our provincial health authority has stated that they have not been given a plan to review. My hunch is it may be 2 U.S. cities. Will be interesting to see how it shakes out. https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/vancouver-edmonton-toronto-nhl-hub-cities?auto=true
  13. The "home" and "road" games will likely all be in the same building. Rumour is Las Vegas may be the frontrunner to be the hub for Western Conference.
  14. NHL rinks are too standard now. The same old everywhere now. Always a big team logo in the centre of the ice. I miss when centre ice used to to vary more at different arenas. Like how the Oilers had the Northlands Coliseum logo at centre ice and their team logos outside the centre ice circle. Always yellow kickplates on the boards now. I miss when some rinks had the blue kickplates. With the CFL, everyone has yellow goalposts now (except Calgary). Miss when many teams used to have goalposts that matched their team colours. Like the green and white goalpost at Taylor Field in the 1980s. I also miss seeing Rough Riders vs. Roughriders.
