Canucks logo update for next season!

I'm listening to the pregame show for the Canucks against the St. Louis Blues and they just said that earlier today that Dave Nonis CONFIRMED that the current whale logo will remain as the logo for next year. I will say that the hosts of the pregame were a little disapointed as they were hoping for the return of Jonny Canuck. Sorry if this has already been posted.

Don't know if you saw it, but there's like a 20 page debate about this a little below.

However, I think you'll avoid flaming because I don't think anyone knew what you've just added - that the current whale logo is staying for sure.

I wonder if that means it'll just be a simple recolor to green/blue?

Somewhat positive news... I wouldn't have minded a new logo, but a return to Johnny Canuck or the stick-in-rink would have been a downgrade, in my opinion.

Who wants to make some concepts with blue/green and the current logo? My guess is they keep the two current shades of blue, and replace the red with green. I'm not sure if that would look better or worse than the current set.

from the original article-

"Right now we're ordering next year's inventory blindly," says the owner of a sporting goods outlet in North Vancouver. "All we've been told is that the colours of the uniforms will be blue, green and white, but we don't know what the crest is going to look like. The current killer whale [or orca] jersey, as we understand it, will be kept in reserve and occasionally be used as a 'classic' uniform."

Don't be surprised if Nonis is saying this for merchandise purposes at the moment.

:blink:

The orca logo is a corporate sham of a logo. Not only was it designed to make the team look like skating billboards for Orca Bay, but it fails to convey the team's name, something Johnny Canuck does exceptionally well. A Johnny Canuck logo would do wonders for the Canucks' identity.

The fact that the team's decided to stay with the orca logo shows how inept that team is when it comes to marketing.

They're only kind of "staying with" the orca logo, if the post above can be believed:

So that's good news.

Thanks!

Well, when the Sabres were changing, Larry Quinn didn't down right lie about our logo, but it was the next closest thing to it. He said that there would be sabres, and that the "B" logo wouldn't be used. Well, the "B" logo was just updated, and the sabres are hidden in the main logo. There's a chance that Nonis is just saying things to say things. Sooo, my guess is that maybe the Whale is a secondary logo, or they're just going to recolor it.

I like the Orca. I never consider it a corporate logo but I can see why some do. I think it's sharp looking and solid. When I first saw it I hated the Orca teeth and they still bug me a little, but not nearly as much. In native art, teeth like that are common but in the logo they really stick out and look out of place. Meanwhile, the other native elements (like the fin) don't.

It may not be that original, as it conjures up images of the Cincinnati Stinger logo to name just one, but it works. I love the contrast between the light and dark on the logo and the red looks awesome framing it all. I do think black would look better than that dark blue though... besides, aren't orcas black?

I'm not a fan of the stick in a rink logo... it was ugly in the 70's and it's ugly now.

That's good. Best logo they've ever had. Why go back to any of those other horrible logos? Although a completely new logo might look good. But I think it's better if they just stay the same. They've changed way too much. They're like women who can't decide on what to wear. :P

Orca Bay gets a bit of a bad rap. They really are not that bad. Although their latest chicanery involves inflating the amount of public money they are scalping for hosting certain events for the 2010 Olympics, but this is tame compared to other sports-related stunts.

Let's put it this way, compared to the Mariners and their nonsense a few years ago, the Canucks and Orca Bay come out smelling like roses, (despite some internal squabbles and a logo that clearly brands the team with a corporate image).

They dumped the Grizzlies awfully fast, but that was doomed from the start, it was a terrible, terrible expansion deal that McGaw agreed to.

Now, if the Mariners come out with a logo featuring Super Mario swinging a baseball bat, I'll be very upset.

I fail to see what's so "horrible" about Johnny Canuck, especially considering the team name is the "Canucks."

The problem people around here have with Orca Bay is the fact that they blatantly chose to adopt a logo for the Canucks that represents the company, not the team name.

What exactly does Orca Bay do? I've never figured that out.

They run the Canucks and GM Place. Obviously a nefarious entity as anyone can see...

:therock: So thats all they do? Run the Canucks? No other business venture anywhere in the grand scheme? Is it just a bunch of stoners who got togather one day and said, "Hey, lets pool our cash and buy a hockey team and like...... A rink man."
