    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 like the old one better but at least the new one is in the top 10 of the rest of the leagues reverse retro

    I like the color, but I've never liked the Orca Bay logo.

    So are we ever going to wear these?

    Has a schedule or date been announced anywhere? I really want to see them in action.

    I just happened to bump before the announcement. I was expecting more than 4 times and all and in a row seems weird. Hopefully there will be more.

    Really looking forward to seeing this on ice.

    Agreed this is OK but that's about it. Loved the electric Oilers jerseys and didn't mind the grey tinged Leafs jerseys either. Usually I hate 3rd jerseys.

    Such an underwhelming jersey. The Orca so badly needs to go.

    Hockey fans are such jersey snobs (still love you guys though). If it's not one of 4 basic colors, has a logo with 40+ years of history, and doesn't follow a simple pattern then it's "ugly". These jerseys are nice. This is what an actual ugly jersey looks like:

    Yeah the coyotes have some pretty cool jerseys.

    As for the canucks one, it isn't bad and isn't good. Just meh. I wouldn't even realize it was a new original jersey if I hadn't been told. Nothing stands out as new and interesting.


    Im a white guy, but I really wish I'd have been able to grab a "year of the rat" canucks jersey...as I'm a year of the rat guy, and those ones are pretty cool for an extra jersey.

    The green colour that looks fine as a trim is an absolute eyesore when it's covering 60% of the jersey.

    This. I also hate the airbrushing. I DO like the colours though.

    I don’t love the jersey itself, but as a reverse retro I think it’s probably top10.

    I never liked the bleeding orca all that much, I think a Blue Green White skate jersey or Flying V would have been a bolder choice.

    not as good as I personally thought. there are a bunch of uglier reverse retros out there, this is not ugly, but it's not great either. I would not buy. Give me the skate jersey all day of the week.

    this is true

    imo montreal, boston, toronto, and detroit have some of the ugliest jerseys in the league.

    related but different sport. pinstripes are ugly as all hell.

    Okay, I've seen it in action. I don't like it. Reminds me too much of the Stars' old design.

    Well the jerseys are done. Probably never to be worn again.

    These jerseys were awful but good god that’s terrible reasoning for not wearing them ever again.

    Always good when superstition is driving team decisions instead of logic.

    People in sports are super superstitious. People still refer to "Canucks Luck" or they think that the Canucks are the only team to get shutout by a backup. My favorite is the idea that "the refs have it out for us" mentality. Or that Bettman is secretly rigging the lottery to benefiting teams he likes.

    Is there team in professional sports that has debuted more awful jerseys than the Canucks? The 'Flying V' still sets the standard for gaudy, amateurish professional sports jerseys three decades later. As for the latest retro jersey, it's basically 'meh' for me.

    Of course it doesn't help that the Canucks have some of their worst hockey of the season in these unies....and that's saying something considering how bad they were to start the season.
