This.

Other than the stick-in-rink logo and the V-patch, it's the thicker white stripes that makes it a better jersey than our home-unis in my opinion.

Make a white version of this one and don't change it!

I disagree. Chicago has a great logo and that is far from a simple design. In the Habs case, there is a great deal of history being referenced, thus I understand the simplicity of the CH. What does the stick-in-rink speak of? Not saying it is bad per se, just lacking in soul as someone else mentioned.

Chalk me up as another that doesn't care for the stick n' rink. So uncreative, with nothing going for it other than nostalgia.. in my humble opinion.
the '94 skate looked so good and and clean on TV cuz the lighting at the Pacific Coliseum was phenomenal in person and on TV.

Yep.

These stripes have better proportions and are so much more appealing visually. They look fantastic on TV.

The Canucks should thicken the stripes of their home and road Orca to match this uniform at the very least. The stripes on the old jerseys from the 70's were not the best template to go with.

It's not that they're disliked by the organization (I think they embrace all of their main designs/colour schemes), it's just that the blue/green/white are our traditional colours and represent the Pacific Northwest.

Personally I like the black/red/yellow colour scheme but wouldn't want to see them wear the logo again because it's too dated. If they were to go back to that look I'd want them to freshen up that logo like they did with the stick-and-rink.

I agree with you.

IMO current iteration is the best jersey.

Although my eyes have adjusted to it, I still think the logo of the current one is really ugly.

It is. Too cluttered, and the Orca is flat in two tone.

My jerseys


What about something like this? Kind of a blending of the old 70's uni's with the current alternates

Those actually aren't that bad! I'd be interested in buying one if this design ever came out

The skate logo, particularly the black is so sharp. It's too bad the logo is dated and is a skate. But it's nostalgic and those colors with the black are badass. Makes the team look like a villain. Love it

As an aside, it realy bothers me that Smyl's #12 jersey in the rafters was changed to the green & blue. Colours he never wore.

I don't know why the current regime seems so down on the downhill skate logo. Many of the best players in our history wore those colours.

How awesome would it be to see the Canucks in those jerseys for a game or two? Maybe it's just me, but I grew up with that logo and I love it.

Players should absolutely be honored in the jersey they wore!

the solo johnny head makes sense logically but the actual shape of his head isn't strong graphically. I think that's why they put it in a V currently, to give it a more complete shape.

the stick in rink is a solid shape (rounded rectangle)
laser spaghetti is more or less a circle, which works
birthing whale is kind of weak, top-heavy logo but worked well enough (until they slapped the word VANCOUVER over it which was a huge misstep)

All I want, as many do, is for the Canucks to get it right and then just leave it the hell alone for the rest of eternity. This jersey, and a cream road jersey, would be IT. Everything else could be acknowledged occasionally as a retro jersey, but these are just instantly new and classic at the same time. Absolutely perfect.

These should be our home and away jerseys:

These are my favourites too. I like the simplicity of the stick in rink logo and seriously, when you're called the Vancouver Canucks looking for a logo that matches the name is always going to be a hard task.

However, I'll be happy if they just stick to the current ones, I like them even though they're a little cluttered. I'm really not keen on the Johnny Canuck logo, it looks more like a junior team's logo than that of an NHL team to me.

You should see the reaction on the main boards. It seems like the idea of "good taste" among posters there equates to "CONTEMPORARY ULTRA GRAFX LOL!!!1"

One uneducated fan even went as far as to assume that the Canucks were manufacturing "fake heritage" with this jersey.

Why the Canucks have never sought out Crayola as corporate sponsor is beyond me. The Canucks have worn everything Crayola's ever come up with.
