Well, I think we can safely say the Orca is finally losing the arched-script.  As for the logo itself, colour me impressed.  Simplicity is effective in this case.

It’s simple, sharp, and represents their history pretty well. I like it!

 

It’s better than the muddy mess that was the Sharks’ latest anniversary patch.

Terrible. Absolutely terrible. The butchered stick from the modified Stick in Rink, the Agency font and worst of all, the Corporate Orca are all being kept. Typical Canucks organization.

 

At least the Whitecaps are heading in the right direction with their brand among Vancouver teams.

 

Well, if you take your own bias out of the equation, it's a decent application of the current assets they have. It could have been a lot worse, and like I said, I actually like it. Less is more. 

 

And I wouldnd't say they butchered the stick. I mean, how can you butcher the outline of a hockey stick? Get it slightly wrong? Okay, whatever. They're not recreating the stick and rink logo; they're making a 50th anniversary logo.

 Safely say you reckon? I don't know how safe it is. I hope you're right and I could see it being the case, but that seems like a bold assumption.

It’s fine. It could be worse. Could be a lot better. I do think the 5 looks a little awkward and the thing as a whole looks a little disjointed.

 

I am disappointed this basically confirms the orca is staying, but hopefully it at least spells the end for the script.

I dunno. That seems like an inelegant, unnatural way to use the negative space. The 50 should be the primary thing you read, but your eyes go straight to that stick-shaped gash.

If they wanted to force the stick into it, couldn't they have tried to work it into the zero considering the shape of the stick in the rink logo? Have the negative space inside of the zero be stick blade shaped.

 

Like the Ducks 20th and 25th anniversary logo, this logo ignores a large portion of the team's history where they looked nothing like they did today. At least the Canucks one is all white so it can be transferred to different coloured applications fairly well, but I do feel like this logo is so entrenched in the current look that it doesn't really represent the franchise fully. A team like the Canadiens or Red Wings or Flyers can because they've looked relatively the same over their entire history, but I don't think the Canucks really can.

This would have made a lot of sense. Unfortunately, the Canucks as organization have rarely made any sense - especially ownership.

The Jets all wore Doan's name and number (current design) for warmups tonight because they're in Phoenix for his number retirement. That's a pretty magnanimous gesture considering that Doan said he would sooner retire than play for a Winnipeg team when it was the Coyotes that True North was set to buy.

Now that I read the explanation...I "get" and see the stick. At first sight...it just looks like a very oodd...very poorly done "5".

I think the negative stick space could be reduced just a bit, but overall I think it's OK.

I thought it was supposed to be the orcha fin until someone point out that it was the stick.

For me, the stick would have looked better on the '5' horizontally.

Terribly cheap-looking. Typical Canucks organization.
