    The only "authentics" were worn by the Giants during that game. There were replicas sold on the Millionaires site, which I currently have. Unfortunately for you, it's a Small.

    And yes, I agree Shut up and TAKE MY MONEY!!

    Might have to pick me up an Edler or Hamhuis in the Millionaires jersey.

    The hat and all the merch was in the Team Store last night. Should be in all locations (Robson and Rogers Arena for sure, likely the third location too).

    The 1998 wool Millionaires sweaters were made by Ebbets Field Flannels in Seattle. Sadly, they don't make NHL licensed gear any more. I really really wish they could do a 61' or 62' Canucks sweater.

    Okay do we have enough symbols/jerseys yet? I franking love the design and the Millionaires design/color schemes, but my god, let's put a cap on the jerseys before we hit triple digits.

    I agree. At the rate they're going, might as well add another patch for the fugly Flying V and the downward skate while they're at it. Of course that might look a bit congested with limited real estate. Possibly a Boy Scout type sash and just iron them all onto it? They can just wear the sash during the pre game skate and also during the shoot out...

    I love the Millionaires patches, but there's something bothering me about this. It's an official acknowledgement from an NHL organization of Vancouver's 97 year cup drought.

    Longest ever. This is worse than never having won a cup for me. :(

    I don't mind, we have the worst collection of jerseys in the NHL. I'd buy a classic Millionaires jersey in a heartbeat. Get rid of the ****ing orca and wordmark and maybe I'll buy a Canucks jersey. Maybe I'm too picky because I'm a designer, but all of our uniforms (past and present) drive me nuts, the only good things we have going for us are our colours and the Johnny Canuck shoulder patch.

    just go back to the stick in the rink, like how buffalo did when they went to their inaugural jerseys. the orca and "vancouver" word-mark is awful, and the only thing saving those jerseys is the colour combination.
    it should be:
    primary: stick in the rink (doesn't matter if it's the styalized version or not)
    3rd jersey: the black flying skate jersey
    boom!!!!!!!!!!

    What, you don't think a team should presently have 5 logos representing themselves........?

    ........and contemplating a 6th? Lol.

    They really should combine them all, so we can celebrate true Canuckhood for all times:

    Back on-topic - as I was quoted earlier in this thread, I was lucky enough to pick up one of the Millionaire jerseys when the Canucks bought out the namesake, treadmark, etc from that heavy metal singer (Thor?).
    But if they release them in blue, I will be purchasing one.

    Were the Millionaires and the Victoria Cougars (now Detroit Red Wings) in the same league way back? Might be a bit of a historical connection there too...

    Detroit game with Millionaires jerseys on the Saturday night before St. Patrick's Day. Call it the scalpers' lockout compensation.

    This V should be the Canucks main uniform

    So this is just a quick rough concept. I dont know if people are realizing. The V patch on the 3rd jersey is a new modern design. It has just the outerlines of the V and the letters colored in white with the rest being blue as the uniform.

    This is much better and easier for the letters to stand out. The old V would be bright white with other colors filling the letters only . I find that the older one looks tacky and does not show off the Vancouver Letters as much.

    Im confused to why the canucks store is selling all new merchanise with just the old logo well the new 3rd jersey Patch is the new modern V.

    Maybe this is a hint that they will reveal that same logo as the main crest for next years 3rd jersey. Anyways i believe that this is what the main uniform should be.Call it a day and go to the simple V as our identity. So sharp and represents us.

    Here is my quick concept.

    Here is a link showing the merchandise at the canucks store. Showing the 3rd jersey with the new V pach then the rest of the products all using the old V. seems odd to not sell products with the new V design.
