Meh, those jerseys.....suck.

Also Johnny Canuck is taken by the Giants, so forget that.

What? No, he's not... the Giants have a giant (some kind of lumberjack). If any folk hero, it's a nod to Paul Bunyan. Johnny Canuck was a fictional war-hero, not a lumberjack. The WHL Canucks years ago decided to retcon a lumberjack-type dude as their logo, but there's no suggestion that that's what the Giants (who are not named 'Canucks') are emulating. Why would they be?

If the real jersey is anything like the above examples I love it. That would be an immeasurable improvement over the orca - not that I have anything against it but the new one definitely outdoes the former. Extremely sleek. Would prefer to see the Johnny Canuck emblem just on the shoulder patch on both the home and away though.

I hate 'em. Thankfully, they won't be it. Maybe I should ply through the older jersey threads but why is it again that we need new uniforms? I know dumb ass at the top is changing the fit/cut whatever, but why do we need a new look so fast? Is it the new ownership & president?

Anyways, IF we must change, I would like a meld of the current with the original. Something with our logo and more of the older colours. But this whole wavy blotch of colour and lines under the arms I hate.. like colorado and dallas... sucks.

I think the stuff under the arms is part of the new look league-wide. Recall the world junior's and olympic jerseys...

I'd have the Orca on the shoulder not the stupid damn rink.

Im not sure how the Johnny canuck logo would sit with fans who have only been following the club for a few years. i think its a logo that connects with the long time fans for sure though. i think they should do something with the orca and the retro colors, and throw johnny up on the shoulder

I would also hope that the blue will be a little darker. I know it's a bit cliché, but the color they are now look very '80s on the TV screen.

If they matched the Seattle Seahawk hues, I wouldn't complain.

If thats it I likee. That would be a MAJOR improvement over what we have now & probably be one of the best unis in the entire league!
I like these a lot. Wouldn't mind getting one with a "16" on it.

I really like the one on the left, I'm not a huge fan of the Johnny Nuck as our main emblem, I wouldn't mind it being put on the shoulder, but I'm not so keen with it as our main emblem...

I agree - the one on the left is a keeper. I wouldn't mind the one on the right if they lost the text and circle around the logo and made 'Johnny' bigger.

I love these jerseys. In my personal opinion, they'd be the best looking jerseys we've ever had. A nice, clean look.

I like the rink & stick logo, it's by far my favorite. Johnny Canuck doesn't look bad, and I actually like the wording around it - it makes it look old school.

It's interesting to see so many differing opinions on the jerseys. Everyone has their own tastes!
