Retro Uniforms
 
I heard this year the Canucks will be wearing retro uniforms for a few games this year, but which one??? They have had so many over the years. I hope its not the original ugly hockey stick ones. I always liked the ones they had in the early 90's. Wish they would go back to those. The currently uniforms are godawful.

I think its the green, blue and white ones. With the hockey stick as the logo.

I dont think they will wear the black, yellow and orange beasts.

The Canucks will be wearing their original jerseys(Green, Blue, White hockey stick/rink logo) for 5 games this year. I think they wear two games against St. Louis, two against Edmonton and one against Montreal. I'm not 100% sure on which games though...

Why would they wear those as retro's?? with the new fashion trends of wearing throwback jersey's like the old Houston Astros jersey's from the eighties and the San Diego padres uniforms for the early eighties being really popular, why not wear the old V uniforms. The might have been sorta load but that style is what's in again. the early 70's canucks uniforms are dull. I think the canucks are missing the boat on this one.

Because those are the uniforms that they entered the NHL with. They are honouring that. Besides, these uniforms will sell great with the fans.

Those old jerseys are sweet! They should go back to them.

I think not! Wearing it a few games a year to honour them is good enough, thank you. People will get sick of them very quick if you use them permenantly.

because when it was announced early last year that the Canucks would be wearing them for a few games this season, sales went up dramatically as people's interest in them increased.

don't take this for more than it is... a marketing ploy.

As long as they aren't bring back the Salmon Jerseys of 96, I'm cool with anything.

They should wear the V jerseys. :D

The "V" version of the orange uni's are so butt-ugly I never want to see them on the ice again - but they do have a kind of super-fan appeal to them on fans at playoff time that few teams can match.
