Johnny Canuck as an alternate third jersey?

165 posts in this topic

Fellow Canuck fans. I personally have never really cared for the orca on front of our jersey. I realize it represents the west coast in a killer whale. I personally feel the new owners in the Aquillini's should bring in Johnny Canuck as a alternate third jersey and/or the primary jersey. The old regime as I refer to like the Province's paper columnist Tony Gallagher once did (Dorca Bay)to me was a FAILURE and so many boneheaded moves! The biggest blunder was trying to rush Gretzky signing a contract here when he was a free agent prior to the Rangers. Wayne wanted to come play here and centre a line with Bure and Mogilny. Can you imagine what that would have been like? The WASTE of signing Messier! Letting Cliff Ronning go for not even a draft pick while Phoenix took him right away. Just stupid boneheaded moves that regime did. Anyways two photos enclosed. One of me wearing a white away Johnny Canuck jersey which I custom made(have a home and away one,and a home blue one. The team wore the Johnny Canuck at a open house practice skills last season so why not? One does not think of a "canuck" as a killer whale. I don't! Team colours are fine and west coast!

It was John Mcgaw or whatever Mr. Absentee owner at that time was that basically gave Gretzky a "ultimatum' of sign right bleepin now or go 'f' yourself. Gretzky along with Bure and Mogilny would have been unstoppable! It was a BLUNDER on Pat Quinn(another TOOL who didn't treat players well!)and Orcay Bay to put a gun to his head and sign right awat cause he was going to had the team not been so obnixious to hockeys greatest player!

No way. The Johnny Canuck is too cartoony for me. I think we should just go stick-in-rink for home/away and skate logo for our third jerseys.

I agree changing jerseys every 10 minutes is something that should end once and for all in Vancouver.

But the Johnny Canuck logo is the logo we should have had the entire 40 year history and its a logo we should have now and forever.

It is the only graphic that represents a Canuck, it was our jersey logo before we changed it for the NHL and it would rival the Blackhawk logo as one of the best in pro sports. Johnny Canuck in the blue and green would be so classic. The orca is great, but it has nothing to do with the name "Canuck".

On a side note, does anyone else agree the orca would be better with some colour? Like the B/G/W colour scheme in the actual logo itself? And will we ever drop the "Vancouver" print above the logo?!
