    Next week the league brings out the teams 4th Sweaters, the so-called reverse retro jerseys

    Canucks uniforms are infamous for being (some of) the worst in all sports.

    Could the Canucks actually get the inverse of this and get one that's actually good?

    You'll love your reverse gradient! (Is it actually what the Nucks are known for? I always thought your unis were nice.)

    Interested in Colorado's Nords tribute, Arizona's Taco Bell purple uniforms and 90s Ottawa in red (which I think could end up being used as their primary uniform in the future)

    In physics a gradient is the greatest increase in a number across space, and it is a vector. Objects have an upward buoyant force in fluids because there is a pressure gradient. Wind is also caused by a pressure gradient. Things fall to the earth because of a potential energy gradient. If you want to get technical, things fall because of a time gradient.

    I didn’t think the Canucks could screw this up, but a blue/green gradient would be so typical now.

    I love these jerseys.

    I still love them, but the thing is I would've preferred the flying skate with the green and blue. Or do the stick in the rink with Yellow, Red and Black.

    What's the No 1 on the back supposed to signify? The year of the sweater they're inverting?

    Canucks have never had a green uniform except with miscolored Chinese knockoffs. This could be interesting.

    I don't agree with that statement at all. I think the Canucks reputation is more that their constantly-shifting jerseys never allow for an identity to sink in. It starts with a blue jersey with the hockey rink and stick, then bright yellow with a gigantic V and the hockey skate, then the V and skate switch places, and then we get an orca on navy. The current jersey does its best to correlate all of these identities into something cohesive, and while a bit busy certainly isn't one of the worst in all of sports.

    It refers to 2001, which signifies the release year for the retro jersey they’re going to tweak with colors. So 2001 and green/blue makes me think they’re doing a blue/green twist on what was the navy/red gradient thirds.

    I know nobody asked and it’s not about it, but I maintain this jersey is way nicer than its general unpopularity makes it sound.

    You make fair points. I think those things may have been auto erased from my day to day memories, to defend against the inevitable overload caused by the deluge of Benning exploits :laugh: Maybe they’re “archived”.

    The jersey looks nice but on the ice I found these jerseys lacked any sort of identity or colour allegiance - Like a really nice junior hockey jersey.

    I’ll admit that I am biased. I own that specific jersey in the pic, with all the scuffing and puck marks and the like. So my appreciation for the jersey has risen. It’s a first half of 06-07 Sami Salo game jersey. The man scored real honest to god nhl goals in this thing :)

    I think the Orca logo is a perfect fit for Vancouver. I know the origin of the logo comes from Orca Bay S&E but it really does suit our city. The Orca gives our team some sort of identity which is otherwise lacking with an abstract name like the Canucks. Stick the whale on the 40th anniversary jersey (with a blue version for home), and we have a perfect jersey.

    The stick-n-rink is fine, but really boring. More suited for a shoulder patch IMO.

    The skate jerseys might be the best we've had but the logo isn't the best. I feel like people mix up their love for the jersey and colourway and attach it to the logo. Never really understood the want for a blue-green skate logo, when it's the jersey and colours from those uniforms that stand out.

    The only other logo I think the Canucks need to incorporate is the Millionaires "V". I think it's timeless. Maybe subtly emboss the VANCOUVER lettering on the V in the sleeves (similar to how Vegas has that embossed pattern on their sleeves).

    At this point the orca is our identity. It’s been around since 1997 which is 23 years and we have only been around for 50

    I like the idea of the Flying V with the V A N C O U V E R lettering gently incorporated into the v in a subtle way with the black/orange/yellow, and the white alternative.

    I still find the stick in the rink to be boring/safe
