TIL: The Vancouver Canucks wore their Spaghetti Skate Alternates against many other bad jerseys

I was digging around online and found some pictures of the Canucks wearing their gradient-filled spaghetti skate alternates against some of hockey's other most-hated uniforms. Neither picture really shows the other team's jerseys, but they're clearly visible.

Just figured I should post this here.

Most teams in 95-96 wore their alternates on weekend (or close-to-the-weekend) games. I think it started as a Saturday thing (for games on Fox) then turned into Friday-Sunday.

Seems about right. I distinctly remember watching the infamous Burger King vs. Ice Breaker Wild Wing game on a Saturday.

As a Canuck fan, I actually like those.  They did look better with the red socks.  It's kinda what an alternate jersey should be without being too ugly like the Kings' burger king jersey or the Ducks.

Ah, the salmon jersey.  They could have made something nice with that base colour but the gradient just sinks it.  I get making a jersey like this in 1996, during dye-sublimation-mania, but I don't understand why they revisited the gradient concept and actually made it worse.
