If you haven't checked out our other teams, visit the Re-Imagining the NHL team page. The team page will be updated daily with every team we update. So before we take a look at the uniforms, lets take a look at Cole's comments on the best team to not win the Stanley Cup in 2010-2011. (Burn).
Cole's comments: Here's one that only required minor tweaking...the Vancouver Canucks.
Things I like about the real Canucks uniforms:
The colors are very unique and distinctive.
The striping is bold and traditional, but still varies slightly from what i used on calgary, thanks to the bottom blue stripes engulfing the waist/sleeves.
The hardly-used johnny canuck logo is simply fantastic.
Things I HATE about the real Canucks uniforms:
None of their logos have anything to do with the team name. an orca isn't a canuck, and the arched wordmark on top of the orca makes an ugly logo into an ugly CRAMPED logo.
They hardly use the johnny canuck, and when they do, they cut his head off?!
The striping on the home and road doesn't match nearly as much as it could (and does in my concept).
Their alternate and throwback uniforms are both 20x better than their home and roads.
I tried to address each of these concerns. nothing earth shattering.
Random fact: the striping on the alternate was ALMOST plaid, but it just looked waaaay too celtic and not northwesterny at all, as I'd hoped.
After the jump, the Vancouver Canucks...
