I think you misunderstood. The NHLPA will be issuing NHLPA logo jersey's for their players to practice in during the lockout. The Canucks are wearing their current practice jerseys inside out until the NHLPA ones arrive.

They just can't afford new practice jerseys under the current CBA.

It is likely inside out or not at all. It's a labour dispute and part of that is teams taking back jerseys, not letting them use team equipment etc etc etc. The Oilers took the jerseys from their practicing players as they were on the ice one day. It seems the players and canucks have taken a different approach.

Try making and selling unlicensed merchandise, then when you get a cease and desist order just let Canucks Sports & Entertainment know that the team's name and logo belong to the fans and the city - see how long it takes them to stop laughing.

No kidding. It really does amaze me as to how people see the team as more than what it is.

The Canucks are in a union and the league is in a lockout. Turning their sweaters inside out is a sign of support for the union.

As a general question, how many unions allow for every single member to negotiate their own salary?

Because it's ****ing stupid, and deserves to be mocked.

The players have come to a city that, for many of them, isn't their home to practice together for their job that their employer has locked them out of. People are ****ing complaining because they don't want to wear that employer's logo and be billboards for them? Because it makes them sad? Are they five years old? Are you a fan of The Vancouver Canucks the company, or the team?

If they didn't give a ****, they'd be sitting at home in Bonanza, Alberta or whatever hanging out with their friends and families.

The ones that reach a collective bargaining agreement that dictates that, I'd imagine.

The #Canucks skating this morning at UBC are wearing their new NHLPA practice jerseys. No need to turn these ones inside out.
Problem solved. Can we close this thread now?

This sums it up perfectly. Why does anyone care what the players wear when they aren't being paid?

They should have practised with their bodies inside out.



And that fog that turns people inside out is actually a real hazard at ice rinks. Just ask Karen Magnussen.

Good one.

What's the capital city of Canada? Do you imagine it's the city that's the capital?

I don't see a problem with it. The Canucks organization ownership group has locked the players out. The Canucks organization is in hiatus and the players are not practicing as Vancouver Canucks but rather a group of professional hockey players. If the ownership group doesn't want them to play hockey as Canucks right now I see no point in them wearing the logo. It might be wiser to just don generic jerseys with no logos whatsoever but whatever.

Like I said in another thread:

It seems "We Are All Canucks" only applies when "We Are Getting Paid By The Canucks". I support the players in their efforts but I really dislike this. It would have been nice to see some of them around town for "Raise a Reader" Day too.... that personally is what I didn't like. Whats next visits to Canuck Place?


Besides isn't it about whats on the front of the jersey & not the back?

The OP has a point. They could have worn anything - they chose this - it absolutely is a statement - and a statement they *knew* was going to be picked up on by the media. Nothing accidental about it.

Now, whether it's worth having a coronary over or not, is for folks to decide for themselves.

But no question they're making a statement.
