    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?

    I see that point. I guess I look at it the other way around - a tribute.

    And I think Colorado did a good job making it look retro, stylish and kind of modern at the same time. Ours doesn't look retro at all. Vasili Jerry did a million times better job at making something look retro, stylish and kind of modern. Would have loved those.

    How about the Coyotes ring of honour members?

    Just have to say that I saw those on Twitter. I’m not talented enough to come up with those.

    Yeah, that bothers me too - especially now that Winnipeg has their team back. I just find it weird.

    Its unpopular because it was designed by a faceless US marketing corporation that had no concern with continuity or history. Any team could have worn that sweater. f*** that sweater. Let another team wear it.

    Continuity or history? A plate of spaghetti, rectangle and some V’s. Black and orange and green and blue? The history was that there is no continuity.


    The colour scheme was corporate, but using coastal First Nations inspired artwork wouldn’t really have flown in Columbus.

    The Canucks have suffered from so many bad owners and uniforms. It would be nice to see a decent throwback to their original uniform instead of more orca and cheesy skate designs. Guess its part of the curse.

    Woof! What a miss. Gradients? LoL. We should bring back Zubaz pants next, or Chip and Pepper tie dye. Knowing the Canucks org and their penchant for idiocy, I’m surprised they didn’t extend the gradient from top to bottom and introduce gradient Cooperalls.

    The Habs get it. So does Colorado. Those are retro jerseys. Not the Trailer Park Boys Ricky shirts the Canucks revealed.

    You might not like it, but nothing you wrote is really true :huh:
    That look was designed by Vancouver artist Brent Lynch.

    People realize the gradient jersey is 20 years old? At this point you are getting into retro/history territory. There is an entire subset of Canucks fans in this world that were not born when those jerseys were released

    As someone who was old enough to start really watching in 99/00 these jerseys bring back a lot of nostalgia. More nostalgia than the Skate because I never got to watch that jersey live (though I do love it). Glad we are doing something different with reverse retro. We've done the 70 jerseys, we've done the Skate now. I'm pretty positive we will never see the V again lol. We've run the gambit on throwback jerseys at this point. Team loves their jerseys....

    I know I'm not in the majority when I say this, but I am SO GLAD they didn't go with the skate-on-puck, either the palette or the logo. I saw a couple mockups on reddit of both a black/red/yellow stick-in-rink, and a blue-green skate-on-puck, and didn't like either of them. The stick-in-rink one just had no "Canucks" feel to it whatsoever, and the skate-on-puck was just absolutely ugly with blue-green. I mean, it's just an ugly logo. I like those 90s jerseys for nostalgia reasons, like most fans, but nothing I've seen compares to the jersey we actually got.

    I thought it was clever to go with a fringe 3rd jersey for the remix, rather than something that just doesn't work. It's beautiful, clean, and feels like Canucks. The WCE-era lettering is the cherry on top.

    Habs one is great, but Colorado's is just heinous. Imagine if Arizona used the old Jets logo lmao

    I like the skate jerseys but people's undying fascination is kinda head-scratching. I doubt without Bure there's none of that "ride or die" love for them. It's a pretty ordinary, run of the mill jersey. Heard nothing but bitching for the "Vancouver" wordmark for what, 10 years? But incorporating "Canucks" into the logo is passable?

    I mean, that skate jersey is good don't get me wrong. But it's the "The Office" of jerseys, just shut up about it already lol.

    Took a couple days and looked at these again ... and feel the same way.

    They look like a cheap practice jersey that someone added a 'fade' to (one of the ugliest jersey trends of 20 years ago) in a token attempt to make 'retro'. And those circa-2000 uniforms were unequivocally the worst in franchise history.

    _________

    As an aside, the Wild retro jerseys (which basically swapped out red for yellow as a secondary colour) are amazing and they should stick with that scheme full time. Even the logo looks way better - the fact it's been a dark-on-dark colour has always made it an indecipherable mess and with the lighter yellow it totally pops in a different way.

    Agree on the Wild jerseys. Also solid retro

    I think my favourite of all of them is the LA Kings one. Combines their best colour scheme (purple and gold) with their best logo (the Gretzky era one). I think that one is really nice.

    Agreed - basically the exact same idea as the black/yellows with the stick/rink posted by @The Vasili Jerry earlier in this thread.

    I don’t get the love for the skate jersey.

    It’s way too busy. Not ugly, but far from from visually appealing.

    Simple is better for logos/jersey.

    Stick and rink is one of the nicest logos/jerseys in all sports.

    Right, I’m aware of which company owned the Canuck at the time.
    And yes, they obviously commissioned the new design and ultimately signed-off on it. But they didn’t design it.

    It's like if GM put the 2001 Pontiac Aztek back on the market in 2020, unchanged, thinking it totally wouldn't be hideously ugly anymore if they offered it in some new colours.
