I also agree with Cornuck.

Actually, if you were pretty confident of winning (which i don't think the Canucks can be this year), I think a clown suit would make a great uniform, because it would be even more humiliating for the other team.

( "Ah man, we got beat by guys wearing clown suits !" )

And the word to describe Free Willy's action is "breaching". An animal giving birth would be a pretty out there logo. Maybe out there enough to be kind of cool....

Jyrki I think that would be a sweet shoulder patch.

I don't mind the Whale logo, but I would like to see it with the blue and green.

I really like the Breeching whale logo, its modern and represents the area. I'm just not sure about the Maroon color for the trim ?? Dark Uniforms always make a team look bigger on the ice. Keep the retro Jerseys, but maybe only wear them when playing Canadian teams or in "rivalry" games. I hate the corporate greed that goes with changing jerseys every year. Look at the English premier league soccer teams.... You have to buy a new shirt every year to stay current as they change the title sponsor that gets plastered over the front of the shirt. Never want to see the "Skate" of the "V" ever again, even thought this was the era I fell in love the 'Nucks!

I'm with Grizz! I like the stick in the rink as it brings back fond memories of the Canucks I first started watching. I

I could however go with the stick and rink colors with a orca logo .

If they want to go retro, then they should go way back:

I really like the white "stick' jerseys, but don't care for the blue one as much (especially after last night's game).

I enjoyed the retro look the league had a few years back. Now, it's just marketing, and different variations of black for many teams. And I feel that it does represent Vancouver. It represents a great time in hockey history.

Hate to be a party-pooper, but you'll never see a Millionaires jersey in the NHL (at least not an authentic style jersey) simply because of the material.

Personally, I don't mind the current logo, or the skate or the Original Canucks logo. As long as they don't go with the V, I'll be fine.

I liked it too, but it was a real challenge to try and draw from memory: I could always get the lettering right, but I kept screwing up the skate boot. ;)

Jyrki, I don't know man...

If you stare at it long enough, the "V" with the right end of the rink looks like a giant "VD". Then the stick through the "VD" looks like a penicillin needle.
