Similar color designs, both Jersey's have depictions of whales on them
Also both have Whale mascots
reincarnated? the Canucks have literally been in the NHL since before the Whalers ever even existed(even as a WHA team)
Hartford? The Whale? Hey, they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime.
Worst thread ever.
Yes but the whale influence has come within the last 20 years right?
When I see Canucks home colors I think whalers
This is a silly thread, but you might like this:
Whalers moved following the 96-97 season. The next season, 1997-98, was the first appearance of the whale on Canucks jerseys.
I'm gonna be that guy....an Orca is not a whale, it's a dolphin.
I think it's time for bed.
another random tidbit,the islanders had a fisherman on their uniform for a couple seasons in the 90s
after the 96-97 season when the Whalers moved it disappeared never to be seen again
I think we're on the edge of a pretty vast conspiracy here people
The Canucks and Whalers last trade sent Jim Down to Vancouver
Last year Nick Dowd played 40 games for the Canucks
Not related but it is an odd coincidence
No, the Whaler's had crap teams with a great logo, while the Canucks had great teams with a logo that's trying to take a crap. Totally different.
Canucks had the royal and green design before any sports team. Whalers/Seahawks/Atlanta Hawks/Mavericks etc.
Whalers back when they were just called New England Whalers had a Sonics colorway theme as well
No. There are tons of quality reasons to rip on the Nucks (I know this having had a roommate in first year uni who's family were season ticket holders), but ripping off the Whalers isn't one of them.
Not until they play this after every goal they score
Literally came here to post this!
Wow, I can still post in this really weird thread idea!
Worst team ever
The Canucks have been far more successful. I think the Whalers had one first place finish in the Adams Division. Ever.
At least the ‘Nucks have been to three Stanley Cup Finals.
No comparison at all.
this gif never gets old
Save these ideas for June.
There we have it. The Canucks are not the reincarnation of the Whalers. They're an offshoot of the Miami Dolphins.
They both had Brian Burke as a GM as well
