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.
Thank you, I can't explain why but for me, that is what our team is suppose to look like. I will always hold onto the possibility that we skate onto the ice looking like that again. I have always felt like these current uniforms are temporary.
Those black jerseys would be the most intimidating in hockey.
