Vancouver is playing their home opener tonight and had five former Canucks come out during player introductions wearing their era-specific uniform.

Dennis Kearns, Stan Smyl, Kirk McLean, Todd Bertuzzi, and Daniel Sedin

 

A couple of goof-ups with Dennis Kearns' jersey; it has the blue version of the retro stick-in-rink on the front and the modern era Johnny Canuck V shoulder patch.

No official schedule from the Lightning, but driving home last night the digital billboard on I-275 had an ad for the next home game on Saturday October 19th, and it had a player in the black alt and was shown in black and white text, no blue.

 

I presume we'll see a mostly Saturday home game schedule with the black jerseys with a possible match with Toronto at home added to the mix, as was done in past years with the previous alternate jerseys.

Prototypes for the throwback voting comp. Surprised the Bertuzzi era orca jersey wasnt given the adizero treatment as well.

Kurtenbach’s jersey wasn’t part of the vote.

Also, look at the collar on Kurtenbach's jersey. That's infinitely better than the 'polo shirt sticking out from under it' toilet seat collars we got. I'm not going to argue about the logo at all but really, if they knew they were making new jerseys why couldn't they have put something like this on.

We interrupt this Canucks thread for other news:

 

The Avs have changed the captains marks on their 3rd jersey to be a one-color of the H&A marks.

The 'A' looks great. The 'C' looks terrible.

If you look closely, Stan Smyl and Orland Kurtenbach's jerseys are Adidas jersey

 

When the Ducks did their warmup throwbacks last year, they were Adidas. Or at least had the Adidas logo slapped on.

Landeskog is wearing two different jerseys...the C's are fairy different. Kinda weird.

 

Sakic's C never had the bottom curl up as much...not sure why they just didn't go back to this (though the second Landeskog jersey is closer):

The C Landeskog is wearing looks like a cartoon fishhook. It’s awful.

He's wearing two different versions in those photos. The awful version looks like a miscut. 

 

Anyway,

The Avs switched to a different company for their lettering this year, so that may be why that changed.

I don't know how I feel about the overall shape of the logo. It's a nice logo, but the shape of it just feels off to me.

That's the same jersey and same C on both pics.  You're seeing it folded slighlty on the one pic, so it looks more tapered like a fish hook.

the photos look they were taken seconds apart as he's heading to the bench.

 

And yes, they have switched to Custom Crafted for on-ice customization. Who does not have the best reputation and does sloppy work. Their Bruins gamers are brutal.

The NHL shield in the top left kind of throws it off.

I don't think that's true. There's no fold in the jersey. It's about as flat as it can be. 

 

Here's another look at the fishhooked version where there is no fold.

From the article, the overall shape comes from the shape of class crests designed by each graduating class. The class crest shape is because the design has to go on the side of the class ring. So basically the shape of the patch follows the same general shape of a class ring. It seams to me they could have chosen a more meaningful patch shape than the side of class ring--especially given that the Air Force has plenty of patch shapes from which to draw inspiration.

I still contend it's the drape of the jersey causing the bottom to appear that way.  ... why would there be two different C's on the same night?   

 

Here's a better shot, when you enhance the photo you can clearly see the draping causing the "C" to appear to taper

You might be right, but it's not unusual to wear different jerseys during a game (switch during intermission).

Could it be as simple as the Centennial O on a different jersey?

 

I believe season ticket holders were told the red centennial jerseys would be back this season.

 

All I can really hope for this season is that we get to see a 1st overall pick being given a brand new home jersey in June, whether it's the black =O= or a return to the 2D centurian,
