This is the best Canucks logo the NHL iteration of the team ever had.

Supposedly the Hawkeyes have had this "alternate" logo since 1999, but it was in fact an attempt to modernize the primary and was never implemented.

It really is terrible. The spacing of black and yellow between themselves is all over the place, and just creates a visual riddle for the eye.

 

Young designers - when you're making (especially 1 & 2 color) logos, consistency in spacing between elements is crucial. It doesn't need to be the same by any means - but it should have some uniformity. The five main elements (4 parts and oval) are all over the place. It looks like a messy room.

Nets alternate from 1998/1999 season. This jersey confusing me, because it has season tag, but I can't find any game pictures with it, I only found photos with v-neck version:

I found also Van Horn jersey with round collar and IIRC round version was also used in NBA Live 2000.

I am pretty sure those were worn the first couple of years of that look's existence before switching to the white lettered version (with wider shoulder straps, I believe?

 

The mothership has this worn from 1998-2000

From what I found Navy letters was used only in1998/1999 season. For 1999/2000 they switched to white letters + triangle inside collar (like above) and then for 2002/2003 (first year of Reebok) they put triangle on collar:

After 2004/2005 season silver alternate was retired and When adidas came to league for 2006/2007 season red one was introduced.

 

So silver jersey had three incarnations plus one unsued (navy with round collar).

Yeah, I'm not sure if they wore the navy on gray for JUST that one season, but I did find some game pictures from GettyImages. For some reason I thought they had wide shoulders in the 2000-04 alternates? Hmmm ... fun find.

Still amazing how simply changing the number color took the Nets grays from trash to classics.

Trash is really exaggerating...

 

But those uniforms are great. That side-paneling is iconic. Too bad they are gone forever.

“Classics” is really exaggerating.  And I usually love gray uniforms.

Well, and considering those saved us from this, I'm grateful for those gray uniforms.

That's the '90s-est '90s that ever '90s-ed.

At least, on the front, they wouldn't. I don't think the design wraps around to the back, though.

 

Maybe numbers on the front of the shorts.

Yup, on the shorts.

 

If you haven't read the whole story, it's totally worth it.

I would say they still haven't. Sure, the name is better, but it's the edgelord version of their old identity without any of the charm.

Pattern trim never ceases to look good to me. It wasn’t right for the Nets, but it worked for a bunch of other teams. The Timberwolves, Diamondbacks, Ottawa Senators, Vancouver Grizzles, and so on all pulled it off very well.
