Canucks "V" jersey with new colors

Meh. They don't do anything for me.

Since the old "V" was more or less the logo, it went all the way almost to the waist on the front. And part of what made it so memorable were the Hallowe'en colors. So loud, so offensive to the eye... but yet you can't turn away. Basic red/white/blue doesn't qork quite as effectively. And in Canada, those colors in those shades belong to the Canadiens; the Canucks use a darker red and navy blue, as well as silver.

Also, by coloring in the shoulders on your design, the "V" doesn't stand out as much toward the top of the jerseys. Looking at these from the front, the design reminds me more of a fighter plane coming at me than just a "V".

Great concepts. Skate & V . . . I would buy any one of these in a second. I understand the team has/will have new ownership. Perhaps they'll look to change that terrible whale logo (based on the corporate parent and definitely trying to leverage the success of the sharks).

Nice job to all who created these.

You're nuts. First of all, Canada does not "own" any colors. That's hilarious.

Secondly, the V did not come down to the waist:

I colored the shoulders the same way they were, it's blue where they were black on the old jersey.

he didn't say Canada owned any colours, he said "In Canada, those colours belong to the Canadiens" when he said Canadiens he meant the Montreal Canadiens

There's just something about that jersey that I think is outstanding . . . wish I had bought one at the time but I was only a kid. I would love to see it come back in the new colors . . . unfortunately like most concepts on this sites . . . they're better than what the team uses and probably will never change.

Sorry--but that V jersey was one of the most hideous things I have ever seen--why bring it back?

I still appreciate the effort and all, but I don't get why people like that design...

It'd be nice to see it for one of those "One Night Stand" things, but other than that, HELL NO, don't bring that back. They would get laughed out of the arena like they were in the late 70s/early 80s.

Robbman, if that jersey existed tomorrow I would buy one.

I think their dark blue is darker, and light blue is lighter, but that's really nice.

(I wouldn't get a Bertuzzi though, I'd get a Naslund.)
