Saw this on Instagram this morning. Not sure if it's legit or not.

It's not, it's a concept from an account called Olierz on twitter. It's what is the hanger effect says.

Plus it just looks like an edited Penguins Stadium Series Jersey.

Take this with a massive grain of salt, as I don't really believe it myself, but a user on the Canucks messageboard claiming to have a friend in a marketing focus group posted the following. I'm only putting it here for the sake of discussion.

Hey Guys, 

 

I have a friend who attended the marketing/design meetings for the new Canucks jerseys and he gave me some very interesting information regarding the new jerseys. This guy is extremely reliable but take it however you want. 

 

1. The "VANCOUVER" is officially gone. 

 

2. The Orca is still the primary logo and will be larger and moved due to the removal of the "VANCOUVER"

 

3. There is little to no change to the collar. However, he did mention something regarding the NHL logo on the collar being moved down a bit. (Cant fully rememeber) 

 

4. The third jersey will be royal blue and will have a brand new logo involving the stick. He stated that the logo is a tweak to the classic stick and rink and is something that we have seen before. My guess is that it will be something like the stick in the 50th anniversary logo. Potential a stick facing vertically compared to the original horizontal stick. He noted that he absolutely hated the logo and the third jerseys. 

 

5. The primary jerseys will also have new shoulder patches. My guess here is it will be the "50" with the stick in it. 

 

6. the 4th jerseys as we already know are going to be the classic skate jersey. 

 

During our conversation, he also stated that the Aqualini's absolutely love the classic stick and rink logo. He stated that designs were suggested by other groups including Adidas which were absolutely beautiful. These designs had a lot more green in the primary and third jerseys and different logo's were presented, however were ultimatley nixed by the Aqualini's.  He said this has been a reoccurring issue with the Aqualini's. He mentioned the new updated stick and rink logo with the curved stick ( current third jersey and shoulder patch) was pushed by the Aqualinis and was the worst selling third jersey in the NHL. Once again, due to there love for the stick and rink logo. He also mentioned that the third jerseys were royal blue because the Aqualinis wanted a blue jersey so there would be more blue in the stands. They want to create an environment similar to other teams around professional sports.

 

Once again, take this however you want but I am confident that these points will hold true. GO CANUCKS GO!

If the Aquilini's love the stick in rink logo so much, then why didn't they ditch it for the Orca back in 2007?!  Getting rid of the script is a smart move long overdo.  Anniversary patches should be on the front, not on the shoulder.  It's not like the Canucks are going to have to replace it with a Stanley Cup patch this upcoming season.  (I'm a realistic Canucks fan)  It's just a focus group, so there could still be changes made, if this is all legit.

I stand by the idea that the team was originally going back to the original jerseys during the reebok switchover (thats why they were "second home and away" rather than just 'alternates') but kept the orca and added the script in order to be more enticing to sell merch to tourists during the olympics.

Have a feeling most of this is true or close to it. I don't get "obvious bs" from it.

This sounds like great news but...

This is extremely worrisome.  Losing the modern stick n' rink eliminates the only green on the uniform beyond the stripes. 

I hope the omission of any striping-related news is due to it staying unchanged.  But...

This part is even more worrisome.  Could the Canucks actually be considering ditching green entirely?  Cause that would be a disaster on par with the Flying V's :wacko:.

One would think that information like this would be extremely confidential with a gag order enforced.

 

As for keeping the Orca, whatever. It just shows how clueless and inept the Aquilinis are when it comes to running a professional sports franchise. Going back to the club's roots - classic Stick in Rink with Johnny Canuck is an absolute no-brainer. 

 

Good on Seattle's ownership and upper management for asking their entire fan base about their respective preferences regarding potential team names and colour schemes. It shows that their organization wants to unite as many of their fans and future fans as possible and build a loyal fan base of all ages., instead of dividing their fans like the slumlords who own the Canucks. Traditional fans want "Totems". Progressive fans want "Kraken". My guess is that there will compromises made. Seattle has many quality people in their organization much unlike Canucks organization.

Pretty good. Shield shape seems a bit arbitrary but aside from that no complaints.

No royal blue is a fail. (Maybe there will be a royal blue version if there’s a royal blue third.)

 

With the Rams, Dolphins, and Chargers in various stages of embracing their best colors, the Sabres in midnight navy is one of the biggest color abominations in sports today.

I'd much rather be in a Sabre fan's shoes by having the right crest in the wrong shade of blue than have the wrong crest in the right shade of blue - Canucks.

Man, the Sabres’ crest is remarkably overrated. Cleaning up/simplifying the 1990s/‘00s designs would be a much better course of action.

Just because they play in Buffalo does not mean they need to have a bison on their logo.
