The Aquilini's and Gillis are very aware of brand recognition, remember that bug study they undertook and realized the Orca "C" was the most recognizable Canucks logo, which is why they kept it.

Then adding the Vancouver because the city would be on the main stage with the Olympics on the way.

The Canucks name has grown since then, I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Canucks nickname was used for Utica as well.

It would promote the Canucks franchise and lead to more revenue. Can't see the Aqulini's turning that down.

Geez it's almost like one should perhaps wait for the story to end before making a comment on it. Well, unless you have some sort of trolling agenda wrt Gillis.

I think it would be wise to keep the name of Canucks for Utica, it's like free advertising on the EastCoast.

The Utica Canucks

Can simply take our stick in rink logo and turn it 90 degrees ccw for 'u'. :D

Except who ever heard of an New York Canuck?

Is there a Moose Jaw Yankees?

Now I gotta dig out my New York State roadmap to find a way to get to a game or two... :mrgreen:

As for that school story, Watertown's right on the New York/Ontario border and I would think people would generally know better. Having said that, there's more than a couple in every crowd of Americans and it just says so much more about them when they trot out tripe like that - especially when they don't even understand that that is so. :lol:

Doubt anyone would care, most fans over there are already excited at having the Canucks getting an AHL franchise.

Growing the welfare state.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
