Since the magnificent Stanley Cup run of 1994, there has always been a fascination with the skate uniform design. The spectacular and poised goaltending of Kirk McLean, the definitive leadership of Trevor Linden, and the excitement of Pavel Bure made that team perhaps the most popular in franchise history; the uniform they wore became the identity of the organization, and over the course of a decade, the flying skate became the look fans cherished most. Many have clamored for the return of those uniforms, and it would seem only a matter of time before the organization finally brings their old brand back to life.

Some have wondered what this would look like. Today, I took the time to give everyone an idea of how our current Canucks would appear in our 1994 colors.

The team's brand and uniforms are as important to this team's identity as anything else. Should the Canucks return to the uniforms they once wore proudly, and resurrect the highly-regarded flying skate brand?

Update: A few individuals have requested yellow pads for Cory Schneider. I've uploaded that version in place of the original.

Absolutely. I still feel the 1994 uniforms resonate with the fanbase and carry a very impactful significance. Our current colors are beautiful as well, but it would be a treat to see the return of the flying skate.

Nice Photoshopping, wouldn't the pads be different colour red? I might have even threw in some yello (If I was as good at that as you)

I wouldn't mind seeing it as a 3rd, I kind of like this Idea for a third though.

I say keep the blue and green. They're part of the Canucks original identity, and we don't need to keep changing colours and logos all the time. If we did make a change, I would like to see the stick in rink back full time since it's our original logo.

imo With a bit of modernizing, we could see a Millionaires tribute 3rd jersey come out soon. Don't the Canucks own the rights to that name? Isn't the Millionaire cup centennial coming up?

Hey, why not rename the Canucks to the Millionaires so we can claim that old cup? Lame, but the Senators did it.

Those almost look like his old Koho pads when he played for florida. Slight design difference but similar effect overall.

Although I prefer the current design/colour scheme, had a friend on the '82 team, so that jersey sticks out to me. I find it easier on the eyes now, than back then. The skate is a good design, yes, it has as much appeal as the current, due to Game 7, SCF games. Other than that, keep the current for as long as possible

I put that one together in the spring of 2008. One regret I have about it is my lack of detail when photoshopping that. There is a long story to it. At the time, I was less experienced and less meticulous about my work. The uniform in this image, as you can tell, is grey, not black; the striping is also too thin, and the colors are not entirely correct.

Consider today's thread my follow-up post, and the new image an update of the Luongo photoshop.

Minus the logo you'd think that was some kind of Ottawa jersey. The current Canucks colours blue and green are more easily identifiable as Canucks colours, unless Hartford gets the Whalers back I don't see any other team using the same combination.

As much as I like the skate jersey, I think keeping what they have now is the best way to go. Just take the word Vancouver off the current shirt and it would imrpove the jersey quite a bit.

I think they should use that design for their alternate jersey, there is hardly a difference b/w they current alternate and they main jersey.
