Who was it that used to get all hot and bothered by jerseys? Mathonwy? I think Skyo did years ago?

Anywho, new jerseys don't say Vancouver anymore.

The jerseys have been mostly hideous for 41 years. A brief blip from 1990- 1997, but mostly shit for a long while. I have no idea why they cling to the shitting whale. Ditching the Vancouver was a big step. But the Aquilinis stubbed their toe after that. They are more at home terrorizing foreign workers in berry fields than designing uniforms

Blue and green and white. Johnny Canuck on the chest. Stick/rink/puck/spaghetti on the shoulders.

And killer whales are in our backyard in Vancity like literally

False Creek!

What about a hairy taco?

Is it just me or do the new jerseys look a lot better and cleaner without the "Vancouver"?

Not a fan of the alternate stylized stick and rink jersey. Too much green.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Yeah the Orca is a good logo for the team’s locale. Not sure what it has to do with Canucks tho.

They are pretty much the top of the food chain in the ocean. So at least there’s that.

Whales are the least appealing animal ever for asports logo. Why not a fuckin hippo? Big blubbery animals...both kick ass. Equally as stupid for a hockey team.

I'd assume orcas have more of a BC Connection than hippos, but what do I know?

perhaps some relevance?

Eriksson' agent J.P. Barry:
Agent J.P Barry on @Sportsnet650

talking about Loui Erikssson. J,P says he talks to Jim Benning 2-3 times a week,

"for a lot of hockey reasons, it might be better for Loui to play somewhere else."
