Canucks to honour the Vancouver Millionaires

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

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

Yet just about every logo had something to do with a King and/or a crown. The Canucks utilized three completely different and disconnected logos that had nothing to do with one another what so ever. It was like three complete identity overhauls. I just don't seem to view the Kings as having that drastic of an overhaul except when they went from Purple and Yellow to Black and Silver in '88. Even the current logo and uniform set seems almost like a return to the '88 look with a slightly different logo. Again, its just my take on it. I totally get how people can think otherwise.

No your abosolutely right. Anyone who thinks the Canucks haven't gone through more drastic identity changes than any other team in the NHL doesn't know what they're talking about.

Isn't that the Minnesota number and nameplate font?

Also, here's Schneider's mask for the event: Pretty swass.

That's a DaveArt lid, all right. Would've been nice if it were flat and non-3D and shiny.

Yeah, this style needed to die two years ago.

Also I really hate portraits of other players (or people in general) on goalie masks. They always look tacky. Like commemorative plate tacky.

Ah

You guys make it sound as if pro hockey players have taste or are refined.

It's one of the dangers of the masks designs ending up in a forum on sports design. :hockeysmiley:

I like the mask in a vacuum.

Isn't that one of the reasons why they are doing this? For commemorative purposes? Isn't that a throwback when you think about it?
