lol that's got to be the laziest of designs, took a premade logo, slapped it on the most basic jersey designs of all time and said done.

Agree Skyo. They need to trick that thing up a bit. That and get Gomer in a bird suit to wind up the fans.

Throw in a couple of UN Gang patches and you got the true representation of an Abby Canuck.

TBH, I'm old school and I love the simplicity and colours of the original six and even the original Canuck stick-and-rink. Every time the Canucks try to "trick" up their jerseys, they look like clowns.

Yeah, and the inverted V into an A on the sleeve is a nice throwback to the original Canucks sweater.

Lol a bit different than what I was talking about. I didn’t suggest a puking whale or a flying V

FWIW; It seems there was a contest and Abbotsford Canucks won slightly over Aviators. I'm glad. What would people have called them for short?
Couldn't have that.

I know what you meant. I just had to throw shade at the stinky corporate whale and the retarded V.

But I do admit there's something missing with the Johnny Canuck crest. It's too plain, needs some minor enhancements. The color and simple sleeves, etc. are fine in my books.

Mr Aquilini better send me one of those sweaters, all I can say about that.

Who knows, there might not be any more hot scoops from the war room kitchen around here if he doesn't. :D

I mean how the Utica Comets jersey look a thousand times better...the AHL is a great place to experiment shit....and Abby goes bland AF.

That would explain things. I always knew the organization was snooping around here stealing our stuff.

So then... I'm guessing Chef is actually Genius Jim and Vin is the Associate Prof?

Who is Frank posting as? (No fuckin' way it could be Ghomes, right?)

Man if I was GM :mrgreen: I'd already have a deal locked and loaded for a draft day deal for Jonesy.
