2007-2008 NHL Logos & Uniforms

Recommended Posts

I really dislike the wordmark. I know what they were trying to go for, but it doesn't work for me. I love the horizontal stripes and lack of piping, though. Unfortunately I think those things should be standard in a HOCKEY sweater, but...

I'll give the design a B overall.

The Canucks website does look good in the new colours though...the logo looks better on the website then on the jersey...dunno why

That is exactly what I was thinking. The logo on the web site and the site itself looks great.

does anyone think that the wordmark has anything to do with the olympics in 2010 as a way to sell VANCOUVER jerseys to all the tourists looking for souvenirs to take home

I'm glad they didn't go with a lumberjack because 2 in the same town as a hockey logo would be too much.

But anyways, yet to find a pic of where the A or the C goes on the jersey. Can't really see it on that one pic of Nazzy talking on the mic.

Touché! (second use of a French word in this thread... mélange was the first)

When I left Montreal, I bought myself an Expos AWAY shirt, as opposed to the white pin striped I preferred because it said Montreal on it...

One word sums up the Canucks' new uniforms: Lazy

They took the dumb Orca and slapped it onto the vintage jerseys. It's almost like a rec league team buying a whole bunch of blank vintage Canucks jerseys and putting their own logo on it. A huge disappointment. Either, they should have given us the complete vintage look or come up with something completely different, even if they kept the Orca logo. Overall, I say this (and I am a Canucks' fan) that the Canucks' new look is the worst of all the teams. Yeah, Nashville and Florida have the same stupid design with the same stupid piping. Tampa Bay looks like a practice jersey. But, what the Canucks did in messing with their sweet vintage uniforms is reprehensible.

The only question I have now is how soon until they can change them again?

Moi aussi (this is fun!), but me Syracuse when I left upstate NY instead of anything with Orangemen on it. Sometimes the city is more important.

Canucks fans!

Leave your girlfriends at the arena, rip out your hair, shave off your eyebrows, rape your dog, kill your firstborn child, paint yourself in blood, beat up a total stranger, start a riot, burn your city to the ground, start a nuclear war, set yourself on fire... FREAK OUT! Okay, that was sarcasm... you all need to relax a bit.

It's not a brilliant jersey but it is an improvement, so stay positive. Man, I thought you guys had good pot in BC, maybe it's time to sit back, smoke a joint, and let that vein in your forehead die down a bit.

Go from this :cursing:... to this B) .

I wouldn't mind having the arched wordmark on it, as long as it had a vintage logo to go under it, like say, that modernized Johnny Canuck logo that's been floating around for months. That way the modernized wordmark can go with a modernized Johnny Canuck that it was originally paired with fifty years ago. I just hate this dark looking monochrome orca that just doesn't fit with the rest of the jersey. I also like the modernized rink logo and I'm starting to think that the organization got too cheap to buy the rights to Johnny Canuck. If they could just get that, I'd be satisfied with the new font of the wordmark and numbers.

The whites look like they're taking the ice in short sleeves.

Just terrible. Plus is it too much to ask for vertically arched lettering if you're going to slap your city nave above a logo?

We're very passionate about the Canucks around here. We actually sell out playoff games on the rare occasion when they make the playoffs and we kind of expect a nice jersey after 37 years of crap. The tradition of crap continues.........

I love the home jersey, best update since Boston, IMO. The white jerseys do look like t-shirts though. Plus this proves that teams not in the original six can have a horizontal stripe.

Hahahahaha... yeah man, I can see that. Hey, hockey teams are only going to keep changing their jerseys time and time again so they can sell more merchandise. That's pro- sports nowadays.

Hey, it's pretty much how Big Shoop was behaving Saturday after the Lightning reveal.
