Canucks Unveil New Colors, Uniforms!

Take your first looks now. I'll have more in a little while. These images are from the streaming online video of the launch that took place this afternoon at GM Place in Vancouver.

As a Canuck fan, I have three words:

WORSE CASE SCENARIO.

I love it!

They didn't need the word "Vancouver" above the logo. It would've looked MUCH better without that. The return to green and blue is great and the sleeves and everything look awesome, the back of the jersey too. Its just that wordmark on the front that looks hideous.

BigBlue said...

I'm not a Canucks fan, but what a letdown, they had some good colors to work with, and they bombed big time.

Curtis said...

the colours and cret are fine
however the VANCOUVER chest is very unnecessary

UGLY
so is the mascot

I think the vancouver canucks owe the NHL fans an apology. That is BY FAR the worst one yet.

Lunt_23 said...

I think they look great! If you think they are awful lets hear why. Having "Vancouver" over the logo is a bit tacky but otherwise it's a fairly clean jersey and not boring at all. Well done

Little Wolf said...

Choke me with a spork. I like everything EXCEPT the huge ass "VANCOUVER" on the front of the jersey. It's just too busy! What were they thinking with that? I like the return to the classic colors, but Goddess is the city name killing it 100%

oh, wow
i thought the unis would be pretty good after seeing the teasers, but that's horrible

horrible.

Why did the have to add the Vancouver across the chest. As a hardcore Canucks fan, I've definitely been let down.

Anonymous said...

It is the same jersey as last year's vintage jersey. All the did is add the wordmark and update the logo's colours. I feel ripped off.

Anonymous said...

Whats up with Vancouver on the front it just totally destroyed the uniform

I agree, "Vancouver" is not needed.

Anonymous said...

No need for the "VANCOUVER" on the front. It takes away from the impact of the crest.

Anonymous said...

I take it they cant remember what city to go back to, so they had to make sure it was big enough to read after they wake up from a concussion.

WingMan said...

The VANCOUVER along the top make these fantastic jerseys hideous!

Too bad. Bet the Vancouver is gone next season (or soon after).

Adam said...

I'm glad I didn't spend $1,000,000 getting that designed...

Did they add the VANCOUVER wordmark so the players would remember which city they played for?

Anonymous said...

sad. such a missed opportunity. the word "vancouver" on the front is amateurish. they could have had the city's name under the nhl crest à la nfl and it would have been great.

what a design mistake really. worse than the new panthers. probably the ugliest jersey in the nhl.

Anonymous said...

I loved the previous colours better. I aslo hate the "VANCOUVER" wording, but I think Vancouverites might appreciate it.

Disappointed nontheless.

Anonymous said...

Are you serious? This has to be a joke. Why did they have to put Vancouver across the chest? Even that font is so generic. Wasted opportunity if you ask me.

k.d. said...

Yeah, why the wordmark? and why not just add a slight green detail on the logo. It looks out of place with green on the jersey, but not on the logo.

Overall, it looks like a Hutch jersey.

Anonymous said...

OUCH! I think they should've learned from the Seattle Seahawks: That blue + That Green + Totem pole-esque logo= ugly uniforms.

I don't mind the blue and green combo, but there is way too much of that green. also I'm pretty sure people are going to be smart enough to know that its vancouver without it having to say "VANCOUVER"

after all the crazy hype, I am severely disappointed

Anonymous said...

So what ! are we so idiot that we don't recognize this ugly logo so they need to put their city name on the front ?

Anonymous said...

That's bulls***. They took the vintage jersey, put the orca on it and wrote vancouver over that? Holy s*** how stupid are these people? The horizontal stripes look like crap with the C. It's way too crowded on the front with the stripes, the orca, and Vancouver. Horrible job Canucks.

Anonymous said...

i say remove Vancouver from the front of the jersey and move them to seattle

Looking'EmOver3 said...

Awful. The Vancouver looks horrible,a nd the Orca has always been childish. Great color scheme, horrible jerseys.

its the horizontal stripe at the bottom that turns me off

Oooh wow...

fredster said...

colours? good. logo? ok. (the orca does look better in the new colours) 'VANCOUVER' writ large across the chest? awful, ugly, unnecessary.

can't help wishing they'd gone with that black and neon green concept posted the other day. there'd be no need to write VANCOUVER on that, everybody would know which team it was...

Anonymous said...

Ridiculous…colours are good but I know where they play. If you are going to put the name in…at least make it discreet like New York or Dallas. Whatever happened to simple and clean?

Anonymous said...

i might be the first to say... i love it!

in fact, i was nervous about the vancouver thing, and i thought that they might put "canucks" at home, but the fact they left both of them saying VANCOUVER, i love it. its not about the image, its about the pride, this is who we are, this is what stands out the most, and never forget it, we're not about an image, we're about a single word/community, which we all make up. vancouver is part of our logo...

Almost perfect...by next season the out of place "Vancouver" will be gone.

The composite logo on this site would have been much better.

whoever said that its the players that make the team... correct but you need a decent marketing campaign to have the money to buy the players... salary cap or not you still need money, and this is one hell of a way to start out

Geoff said...

Were players and/or fans having trouble remembering which city they were from in the past?

Anonymous said...

A lot of people are saying this, and I agree, the word VANCOUVER vastly brings down the attraction of the jersey.

Oilerfandan said...

This is to remind the Canucks fans who they are chearing for. I LOVE the colors!! Hate the logo and the Vancouver on it. O well at least its not a flaming 'C' I wonder it the flamers will put 'Flamers' over top their logo??

Anonymous said...

I like them better then the other green and blue ones they where showing. And the writing of Vancouver above the logo doesn't go good. They didnt really need it. And why didn't they have Luongo show them of with the others. But overall I give them a 7/10.
Go Canucks Go

R I D I C U L O U S ! What was the designer thinking when he plastered VANCOUVER above the logo!!!?? Kinda disappointed as a hardcore Nucks fan. If you look at the C on Naslund's jersey, you can see that it is soooo high up, god, all that hype for nothing.

Awefull, I just dont understand how un hockey team let go such a plain and hideous jersey. For the Canucks the identity problem stays... As a graphic artist i understand the error. THEY MIX EVERYTHING... to make a pizza of all those bad design the Canucks add all those years. There is no contrast at all, i just dont understand and hope for the canucks fan this horror wonnt stay....

Anonymous said...

Is the Vancouver word necessary? No. Should the Orca have stayed? Maybe not.

Blue and green are the colors we SHOULD be wearing, so I'm happy about that.

They're not the sharpest jerseys in the NHL, but the ugliest?

You people need to give your heads a collective shake.

Peter said...

Lets get something cleared up - it may not the jersey that makes the team, but its still quite important.

If you show up to a job interview in crap clothes, they're gonna treat you like crap.
And call me shallow, but if I show up to a business orientated job wearing nothing but something I picked up from a dumpster, thats going to affect how I preform too.

So screw your own narrow minded ideals of acceptance and get on with reality.

They should of put the players name above the logo....what did you forget were you play.

Anonymous said...

I think they look pretty sharp...but I do agree with a lot of people here that the VANCOUVER seems unnecessary and clutters the front of the jersey. Colours are great, though.

Paul said...

It's a really nice looking jersey in paying tribute to its distant past, but the only thing I don't like with it is what many, many people seem to hate here... the "VANCOUVER" wordmark on the chest. IT IS NOT NEEDED! If it was just the Orca logo on the front, this jersey would rank much higher on the list of new jerseys that have been unveiled this summer.

Anonymous said...

Canuck fan in California here... for those of you that don't know... the "Vancouver" over the logo is an homage to the Pacific League Canucks.

Now for my honest opinion.

I LOVE the Blue jersey.... the white however... is an abomination. My Canucks disappoint with a jersey yet again.

Anonymous said...

The new uniforms are just like the team has been for years GARBAGE!!

hahahahahaha said...

So after all this hype and buildup and careful consideration, they just throw the current logo on the retro jerseys and add a horrible workmark?

Anyone who thinks that workmark adds to the jersey needs their head examined. There's barely any room left for the A's and C's. The Canucks are forever cursed with hideous uniforms.

You people obviously don't play hockey - these are great sweaters. Classic old school feel with new age curb appeal. Word marking has been missing from the NHL for a long time. Hopefully the Dallas word mark rumors are true. ps. For those of you who don't like the fit of rbk edge, you simply don't know what your talking about. Ive played in them - they are revolutionary.

Canuck said...

WHY!!! GOD!!! Vancouver across the top not needed, otherwise not bad, but still a big let down. Why not go back to the retro C/hockystick/rink. It's simple.

Anonymous said...

I guess they are so dumb in vancouver that they keep forgetting where they are from so the have to put it right on the jersey so they wont forget

Paul said...

Well, at least there's no bizarre striping on these new ones. But yes, it's a shame they used the wordmark. Have the Canucks joined the WCHA of the NCAA? (unfortunately it looks collegiate).

Yea man, I get it. It still looks stupid though, as it doesn't fit with the modern logo.

Speaking of that, who decided that a stylized, curved C would look good with horizontal stripes?

Matt said...

First of all, I'll give the Canucks credit for not giving in to the trendy RBK style that has plagued other jerseys. There is trim on the bottom and there is no ugly piping down the sides. Hooray!

Having said that, this jersey looks like a bunch of ideas all rolled into one. It's like they couldn't decide if they liked VANCOUVER across the front or the Orca, so they chose both. With the exception of the New York Rangers, word marks on the front of a hockey jersey are a huge no no!

You'd think they would have just switched to the real vintage jersey, with the evolved stick in the rink logo. Vancouver sticking to something that's popular? Nah, too much logic in that.

Anonymous said...

I hope They didnt pay alot for someone to make that design because i have seen alot better ones that people do just for fun. Just One word needs to be said for the new jersey

RBK Edge strikes again. The NHL is going from having some of the best looking uniforms in all of sports to having the ugliest by far.

a curved 'C'? really... whats that

Anonymous said...

1 - love the colors
2 - hate the "Vancouver" lettering
3 - should have made the stick logo the primary and the orca the secondary logo

Anonymous said...

I think they could have been a lot worse and we should be thankful for a few positives out of it. The colours and the horizontal old school stripe pattern is fantastic. How many teams still have classic horizontal stripes?
The 'Vancouver' is a real retro thing going back to before the 50s. So many teams back then had similar lettering. People just aren't used to it and it could start a trend.

Well, I was prepared to hate it, but I have to say I think the new look is killer. It has a retro look, especially with the wordmark. These jerseys look tough compared to a lot of the other new "stylish" ones. This is a hockey team, not a modeling agency.

Ugly. The many different concept jerseys by fans were way better. the vancouver wording would've been ok had it been smaller. It just looks like a huge mess. Like some retard said "hey, lets mix the old jersey with the new logo and then add a giant VANCOUVER above it." they didn't even try to make it all work together.

No doubt in 4 years time it will be new logo and colours

I'm wearing my vintage stick jersey today, and I'm looking at the new jerseys... I kinda like em.

My biggest concern was colours, & we kept the blue/green. I'm not real big on the "Vanvouver" across the top, but it looks good on the goalie.

Brian said...

Wow. That "Vancouver" is just awful. Like people have said, it will be gone next season.

I like the old colors and don't hate the orca, but these unis are awful.

David said...

Then they should just make the goalie have the Vancouver on his jersey. I like the colors, and the logo actually doesn't look as bad as I thought it would. It looks really sharp on the ice.

However, I didn't like the horizontal stripe on the bottom, and I thought if they had to put the City name on it, then at least make the letters smaller, it overpowers the rest of the jersey.

Absolute C said...

As a Vancouver fan, I actually don't mind the new jersey. The Vancouver wordmark is a nice throwback to an oldschool jersey, and they kept the key colours. All said and done, we could have come out far worse than this.

Timothy said...

The wordmark just kills it, the front looks too crowded, and how will the fit a C or an A?

Lucas said...

I love jerseys, but these are terrible. I agree that they would be much better without Vancouver written above the logo.

Chris? Did you get my Email? I sent the updated concepts.

Anonymous said...

Someone should start a petition with signitures or emails or whatever against the new canucks jersey. The Canucks should take a poll as to what fans like and don't like about the new jersey and what it is missing and maybe its not to late for it to be changed before they go on sale. As for the Vancouver being on the jersey, is it on the jersey for tourism/publiciy purposes?

Mark said...

I'm really surprised at the negative response. These are GREAT jerseys. They have stayed true to tradition with colur and design, and haven't adopted any of the horrible Rbk design element that have ruined so many of the jerseys seen so far. If I were a Canucks fan I'd be really pleased right now.

In reference to the Flames jerseys to be revealed on Sept 4th, don't get too excited about big changes. The teaser video on the Flames website shows enough of the jersey elements to confirm that they will be identical to the Quad Cities Flames jerseys revealed several months ago, i.e. the concept jesrey on this sight which was based on those jerseys is correct... no doubt about it so don't waste much time eagarly waiting for them... you won't be seeing anything ground breaking. The only design element that remains to be revealed is the shoulder patch. The flaming horse head is gone, and a new one will be added. I'm happy that the one element of the old Flames jersey that I did not like is gone (the "V" shaped striping on the abdomen), but they have unfortunately adopted some of the stupid Rbk piping that pointlessly polutes alot of the new designs. Oh well, could have been worse, but I wish they had stuck to tradition like Vancouver has done with great success in my opinion.

Close but no cigar. I like that they went down the road Boston took in going with the horizontal striping instead of vertical, the blue and green are great, but that damn wordmark... Once they wake up and kill it from their jerseys, it'll be one of the best in the NHL.

I wanted to somewhere to vent, but I see I've been beat by everyone. I hope Zimmerman or whoever is responsible for this disaster reads ALL these comments because those are a joke. I saw so many nice concepts that I wished were chosen, but they go back to the '70s look, and to make it worse they add the scripting to the top. F'en boneheads! I guess I wont be buying one anymore.

The Canucks had such a fantastic opportunity to make things right. That whale HAS to go. The VANCOUVER lettering compounds the problem.
They should have consulted the fans in the first place. The Johnny Canuck logo, a la Luongo's mask, would have been great.
The moment they were released texts from friends across Canada came in, mocking the Canucks.
The Canucks should suck it up - given the negative reaction - and make some changes. The fans deserve better than this.

Anonymous said...

That "Vancouver" across the chest just looks brutal. If they wanted to pay homage to the original WHL Vancouver Canucks, then why not ditch the "Orca Bay" logo and bring back the "Johnny Canuck" (the hockey playing lumberjack) logo? The only thing nice about these jerseys is the return to aqua-marine and green. But everything else...Bleh!

Not so bad. I'm born and bred in Vancouver and I like how it's a mix of retro and current. The "Vancouver" on the chest isn't that bad. At least it'll tell stupid moron fans who don't know where we're from, where the Cup is going to end up. They're my team, I support them and will buy a new jersey.

P.S. - There was this much uproar when they went to the Orca. You'll all get over it sooner or later.

fsr said...

I'm a fan. Good design, cool colors, always liked the logo. Putting VANCOUVER over the chest is okay by me; I don't think it matters either way. I guess it makes it look kind of old-school if anything. The 'Nucks aren't my team, but I am a fan of them. Better colors than the last set. Way better than the old German flag color scheme and unis.

Anonymous said...

I'm a diehard Canucks fan, and I guess I don't mind it, but I'd rather have it without the word mark, or if the word was contained in a circle or something, with the Orca.

PS . . . No offence Chris, but I think the thumbnail for the background on the 'Nucks logo shouldn't be green . . . it should go with the logo, like all the others.

I like it...very traditional without all the business of piping and nike-ness. I agree the "vancouver" block across the top is unnecessary but all in all I really dig it. It is unique now in that nobody has this color combination...let's hope it lasts more than 5 seasons.

If anything is wrong with that jersey its that they kept the orca logo, one of the worst logo's in the league.

Hideous!!! I'm just jealous of that 3rd grade designer who pocketed 1 million bucks from the Canucks. Just look at the jerseys from a distance and you can't tell what is going on...no contrast at all. Should have kept the colours but updated the 70's striping. And the logo's colours don't match the jerseys!!! Bad sign when a simple navy t-shirt with your logo on it looks 100 times better than an actual jersey. Not buying one till they take "Vancouver" off, or shrink it. Poor Naslund and the other Assistant C's will look the worst.

I think it looks really good to tell the truth. I would only change the logo on the home jerseys. needs more colours. just the blue and white is boring.

the only and only problem guys is the fact the lettering is too big but its not the worst stop complaining its better than most of the canuck concepts i've seen its good and those fans that think this is a put down why were u so hyped in the beginning i personally think its better than the recent jersey i'm i wrong

I'm an Oiler fan, but with some of the concepts I've seen for the Nucks, I was very excited to see what a million dollar design looked like...What a ripoff! Everyone is saying get rid of the wordmark, I would go completely the other way... Kill the Orca, it's a corporate symbol, leave the "Vancouver". THEN it looks classic.

No wonder that the Canuckleheads are the 2nd worst team in the league (1st worst team is Calgary Shames). I guess that explains why they usually end up at the bottom of the NW Div. From an Oilers fan :P

Most of you seem to be on glue. The blue could have been a little darker but that's the only criticism I have. The wordmark celebrates the city, we get the stick and rink on the shoulder and the Orca is pretty cool. There's the vintage touch going back to the original colours. Hopefully the franchise doesn't change the colours EVER again so we can keep some sense of identity and tradition. Stop sniffing glue.

the new nucks unis are terrible! they messed up the logo big time!!

first of all the new team colors are royal blue white and green yet they decide to have alot of black in the logo? we must be the only team in sports who has a different color logo than whats on the jerseys.

the use of the vancouver wording would have worked better with the old stick and rink logo...it just doesnt work with the orca...

idiots!!

VERY disappointed with Vancouver's new jerseys... but then again, when has their design department ever come up with a good jersey in the last 30 years? They would've been better off just going with the real retro blue/green/white jerseys because all they did was change the colours of the logo, add VANCOUVER and call it a day.

I wish I got paid to come up with this logo because I'd be laughing all the way to the bank.

Who else thinks that the big VANCOUVER has anything to do with marketing the city's name even more for the Vancouver Olympics?

I don't think these duds are that bad, considering the orca logo is still on it. The wordmark adds a little character above a somewhat dull logo. The jersey colors have improved as well. Those of you who think this is worse than the buffaslug mutation, give your heads a shake!

SICK! the best jerseys so far...

pathetic.

and I thought Nashvilles jerseys were bad!

its official...this jersey overtakes the Flying V as the Canucks worst jersey ever in team history.

seriously who is going to buy this crap? besides a few thousand Vancouver sheep who must absolutly have it because its the new,cool and trendy thing to have in B.C

I havent seen 1 decent new rbk design from any team....yet.

they all suck.

and im losing faith.

jersey sales will suffer and the nhl will switch back to the traditional style jersey.

these RBK jerseys will go the way of the Cooperall in a few years,they will be scrapped..hopefully (remember when the Cooperalls were called cutting edge technology?)

I'm sick of, "oh the word mark, ew," it serves a perpous a a historic logo, the Vancouver millionaires. all in all, a very sharp uni.

Its a jersey who cares as long as they play good who cares. The jersey doesn't effect the game its the way u play.

I'm also completely disappointed in the change to the secondary stick the rink logo. it looks ridiculous now, before it was shaped nicely like a hockey stick, now it just looks like a 4th grader drew it

First, I got tired of trying to read the 180+ comments, although the comment of 37 years of ugly jerseys was funny.

"Vancouver" across the front is an homage to the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey League that operated until 1925. I believe they won two Stanley Cups. I was opposed to it at first as well, but once I found that out, I recognized it for what it was, a nod to Vancouver hocky history. Not just Canucks.

don't complain too much people its just a jersey and by the way its better than lots of other rbk edge jerseys so relax EVERYONE GOD!!

B said...

All you people who are defending the "Vancouver" wordmark because it pays tribute to the Millionaires are way off. Sure, the Millionaires played in Vancouver, but that's about all they have in common. The Millionaires played in a different league, with a different name, 50 years before the Canucks ever existed. That's be like the Senators unveiling their all new uniform and *gasp* it's the 1905 Silver Seven black, red, and white striped piece of art. Sure it's history, but that doesn't make it suitable for use on what's supposed to be "new and improved".

And by the way, the wordmark would be so much better if it was about 1/2 the size.

whatever man! the millionaires do play a part in the history because the history is not just about where or when, its about the city, its about vancouver, thats what makes the logo! i think if the font was 1/2 the size, whats the point?? thatll look uglier! if theyre gonna put the vancouver on, it should stand out, it looks great the way it is, i cant wait to buy one, because im a proud canuck fan and this is definately awesome. no other team thinks about putting as much thought into a jersey.. other teams just think about image and what "looks" good, this jersey isnt about that, its about the pride of vancouver, which is HUGE

jay said...

As a canuck fan, i love it too.

there is meaning to everything. in the video it says "it's been a long and curious road, but we are now vancouver owned again" talking about the ownership of this team. it should VANCOUVER loud and proudly. lets support our team and their logo. i dont know why everyone wants to be negative, thats not what vancouver is about.

GREAT LOGO WITH THE INCORPERATING OF THE CITY. ITS PART OF THE LOGO, SO ANY SMALLER AND A SMALL LOGO WOULD LOOK OUT OF PLACE.

Looks like something from a beer league. "Moose's Tavern" above the logo ... Disappointing.

oh man.... i feel sorry for canucks fans everywhere.... so many leaks that looked soooo good... and then you get this. i love the white orca though, and the stick in the rink looks good... but the "VANCOUVER" over the orca ruins the whole thing... and they definatley could've gone a little more modern... it's not really jersey the makes it look bad.. it's that terrible wordmark, but all in all? still hideous.

Anonymous said...

wow....as a canucks fan i was really excited to see what they were going to do...however after seeing it i wish that they hadn't revealed them yet...the colors and the symbols are sweet....but what the hell were they thinking throwing the word vancouver on there....it just looks like too much stuff thrown onto one jersey
