Canucks to honour the Vancouver Millionaires

Recommended Posts

That patch should replace the decapitated-Johnny they wear now. Would look great on the shoulders.

Maybe put it on the homes as well, and then they could take the goofy city name off their chests.

While I appreciate the history of the logo, I simply don't think it works. It seems more like an early comp that never should have made it through to the final cut.

They can rebrand their third as an amalgamation of past Vancouver hockey teams. Just switch Agency for an old-timey font and they should be set.

If you take away the history and nostalgia factor, it's a pretty basic design. I almost hate it, but I might as well try to tolerate it seeing as how this team just loves to churn out new looks all the time.

Actually, not counting the alternates, the Canucks haven't changed their looks too often. The original stick-in-rink jerseys lasted eight years. The two V jerseys lasted eleven. The black/gold striped jerseys lasted eight. The first orca jerseys lasted ten. The current jerseys are going on six years.

They're not the Blackhawks or Canadiens, but five uniforms in ~45 years isn't that bad.

Doesn't help that they're all so drastically different.

I know not every team gets to have to continuity in their aesthetic from day one, but something a little less all-over-the-place would be nice.

I hear what you are saying but while they haven't made a significant number of changes over the years, the changes that they made were so drastically different from the previous one that you can argue that they haven't really had a consistent look that anyone can point to and say: "Thats quintessential Canucks right there!". They've been all over the place during those 45 years.

The Kings basically did the same thing.

The Penguins are worse than both the above teams.

No, because those weren't as radical.

Somehow it just doesn't feel the same at all. You can argue that since 1988 the Kings essentially had the same basic colors: black and silver, with the addition of purple along the way. Despite the fact they changed their logos at different points along the way there was always a crown or king utilized.

Vancouver was truly all over the place: blue and green with a rink and stick; yellow, black, red with a 'V', then a skate; that was followed by an Orca in navy, maroon, and silver...then a mish mosh of the first and last look. It just seems to lack any kind of continuity. They need to stick to something (a color set or a theme or both) and run with it for a while.

I'd say the Kings have gone through just as many logos, if not more.

On the Vancouver side, I view this Millionaire's retro night as a "we can't host a Winter Classic so here's an old school jersey night" kind of thing.

More. If you don't count color changes, the Canucks have had three primary logos. The Kings have had six.

I don't like the Millionaires jerseys. We'll see how they look on the ice.

No numbers on the sleeves? That's a bit weird.

they have a very modern font on a very vintage jersey. Sure, it looks fine with a 7, but the 3s are going to be awful

edit: nevermind, I was told it was the Canucks' normal font for the numbers. Clearly that isn't so
