    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?

    Definitely. At first i looked at it and didn't hate it. But each time i look at it, I like it a bit more.

    I do like the shades of blue and green over what the current jersey are.

    not quite the Seattle Thunderbirds colors but kind of close.

    The thing that interests me about this jersey is that they changed the outline of the Orca logo from navy/dark blue to Kelly green.

    This detail always bothered me ever since we changed our colour scheme to the lighter blue/kelly green colour scheme as the whale logo retained the dark blue colour scheme of the silver/dark blue era so it never quite looked like it belonged on the green/blue jersey.

    I wonder how this rejiggered logo would look on our standard home/away jerseys, the green may allow it to mesh better?

    Management really knows what the fans want.
    90% of fans “get rid of the orca”

    management “let’s keep the orca!”

    The stick in rink is still my favourite with this colour scheme but these aren't horrible and the gradient looks much better with these colours.

    Have to see how they look on the ice but right now I’m indifferent to them.

    Could be worse. They could have just copied an old flames jersey...

    Could've been worse. Missed opportunity not to have the Stick and Rink crest. What saves it is the blue piping at the bottom. Otherwise we get into this territory:

    agreed. Also can go wrong with blue and green as the colours of nature.

    I believe they made the Orca logo larger after removing the Vancouver wordmark last season.

    nah I’m talking in comparison to the previous versions of the gradient look also, it seems awkwardly sized to me.

    Hard to compare since you are looking at an image of a fully equipment wearing 6’3 240 Lb Bert vs a woman without pads who may be wearing a more fitted one designed for females.

    Every pic of the jerseys I’ve seen except the one you posted show the same blue outline around the logo.

    Lame. Just lame. Why not the downward skate? Classic look with tons of nostalgia factor, utterly different from what we have now. Ah well.

    agree. it reminded me of the wce era... they should have gotten a johnny canuck logo holding a stick/axe to put it there to match with the colors. i can guarantee u it would look 100x times better than that.

    i love the black skates i have one myself. i was hoping for those jerseys to become permanent for home games. and then games against toronto/montreal or whatever, they can wear their classics stick in rink types.

    Came here to post that these were the ugliest jerseys since the 1996 salmon-coloured disasters.

    Much like those, these look like assy practice jerseys.

    Retro shirts that are not really retro. Well well. Go Canucks.

    Love the Colorado one.

    Colorado (and Carolina) both irk me. The Nordiques and Whalers jerseys are definitely among the best ever, and those retros certainly look good - but I find it kind of gross to see them worn by different cites’ teams. I don’t know if I’m articulating that very well.
