Vancouver Canucks Unveil Four New Uniforms

who officially confirmed this?

 

If it's true, overall it's a slight upgrade. However I think the shoulder patches on the white road jersey should remain blue. 

 

The mothership says the leak is legit and that all the same changes changes will happen to the white road jersey.

Inverted stick-in-rink? Huh, that's unexpected. It looks fine; I'd still prefer their actual namesake on the front, but this is a definite upgrade.

It's a both a little anticlimactic seeing these mocked up and depressing to accept their confirmation. 

 

I dont like the modern stick logo. I don't like the agency font. I don't like those rugby collars. I will never like that orca logo and dont really care either way about removing the script.

 

At least the 40th anniversary gave me something I did like. Kickass heritage jerseys and the best team in Canucks history.

I dont think the Canucks jersey will ever look amazing with the Orca and those colours not quite matching, but this is almost as close as they can get it making it work. I would have liked to see them do something different with the collar though, that still bugs me like it does to a few others here.

I think this is a downgrade. Not because the Vancouver script was great, but that it added a little bit more of the actual team colors. The road jersey especially feels like a beer league team slapped their navy and white logo on royal and green jerseys. And the inverse stick-in-rink is not great...

If you think this change is underwhelming, just wait until the Senators put their old 2-D logo on their current jerseys and call it a day.

I'm not in love with the jersey but at the same time its still an upgrade, however minor it may be.

The Orca is still one of the worst logos in major pro sports but ditching the Vancouver is a big upgrade. I can't be too upset at that but I still wish it were gone entirely.

As with the previous set, the updated white jersey seems noticeably superior to its blue counterpart. 

 

I would agree with that.

Something about the all blue set just is a bit off. The white jerseys look sharp.

Preach. Why can't we have the V on the sleeve? That seems like a perfectly fine compromise to losing the VANCOUVER.

The stick in rink is one of the worst primary logos ever.

I like it. I've always liked the Orca. Hated the city script. Looks much cleaner now.

If these are the legit jerseys, I'm liking them. The logo could stand to be a bit larger, but it's a fine jersey. Certainly not as bad an idea as making the stick-in-rink their new primary logo (seriously, it's a bad idea) or (heaven forbid) forcing Johnny Canuck into that role when he just wouldn't fit.

 

Corporate or not, the Canucks have had the orca for nearly 20 years at this point, and I don't see any signs of the orca being axed.

I loathe the orca logo in all it's iterations. It's a generic and thinly-veiled nod to a corporate entity that's no longer involved with the team. 

 

Bring back the flying skate! Let Seattle try to do something more creative with the blue/green scheme.

I don't understand the insistence on keeping the gray in the Orca logo while it is nowhere else in the uniform.

Definitely an upgrade. Just removing the Vancouver script alone would have done that, but the shoulder patches are a nice touch as well.

I'd rather they keep the flying skate as a special event thing and never, ever bring it back full time; it's painfully 90's design in all the wrong ways. Speedlines everywhere, obnoxious bright colors, BFBS, slanted text...ech. I'd rather them stick to a professional looking identity that's at least modernized enough over a painfully 90's identity that really is only remembered as fondly as it is due to the '94 playoff run and a disdain for a fine logo just due to association.

 

And I know some Vancouver fans will probably crucify me over this, but honestly the orca's the strongest identity this team has ever had. The stick-in-rink was fine in the 70's, but it'd be a terrible identity now. The flying skate only worked in the 90's and would look bad as the main logo. And Johnny Canuck is just not strong enough as a logo to justify replacing the orca full-time. This team already has enough of an identity crisis, let's not make it worse and just stick to one specific logo for a while, eh?

 

And hell, an orca is just as much befitting the name "canuck" as a flying skate, a stick in rink or a flying V. The team's name isn't the "Vancouver Flying Skates", "Vancouver Stick-In-Rinks" or "Vancouver Flying V's", after all. 😛 A name as generic as "canucks" opens itself to a fair amount of meaning; and orcas are very prominent in the Pacific Ocean, which Vancouver is right next to...and I'll be honest, an orca is a much more intimidating and badass logo then a lumberjack with a hockey stick.
