Retro jersey not so retro?

Post by trevor corey » Mon Apr 10, 2006 5:11 pm

The media is spinning this jersey issue. Hockey fans are notoriously superstitious so with four wins zero losses in the retro and at a very desperate time should the Canucks ride out the season with the popular stick and rink logo. According to league rules we can only use it two more times. Will this become a rally cry for desperate fans?

Anything that nixes the "Free Willy" jersey is a good bet in my books ...

I love the old jersey ... way better than some of the newer ones teams have with the cartoon characters on them.

I like the retro very much too.

What about a new combination ? The retro with orca shoulder patches ?

Would be nice.

Don't degrade the retro by putting the orca bay corporate logo on it. :evil:
