HF&P, Part 19: Vancouver Canucks

Readers, you deserve better — the three of you out there. I promised posts every day and here yesterday came and went without a word from moi. I apologize and will try to keep that from happening in the future. On the other hand, it was my birthday yesterday so therefore I get a free pass.

Anyway, having said that, the illustrious "Hockey Fans & Photoshop" series continues today with the Vancouver Canucks.

It's our favorite nostalgic artists taking a whack at Johnny Canuck, now. One thing we know for sure is that the Canucks won't be donning the blue and red next season. A logo/uniform change is coming August 1, according to retailers.

But this was a classic design. People seemed to like the green and blue scheme. Personally I'm not a fan but then I don't have to look at the uniforms every night. Anyway, it's a neat look, recapturing the Johnny Canuck logo of yesteryear and making due with the old '70s logo on the shoulder — which you currently find on Canuck uniforms.

Overall, I'd have to say I like it — not love it, but like it. How do you feel about it? Comment away!

Up next: you know you want it — the Boston Bruins.

I'd very much like to see the origional Johnny Canuck logo incorporated into an alternate jersey down the road. The logo has history, character, and team identity.
