Canucks Jersey's Ranked 17th among teams

Free Willy, the beloved Orca whale that is on our teams jersey, was ranked the 17th best jersey in the NHL. The number one spot went to the Montreal Canadiens and rightfully so. It’s clean, crisp and has history and tradition behind it. On the other hand, our logo and uniforms seems to go through an identity crisis every five years. There is even talk of bringing in the Vancouver Millionaires jersey as a future third jersey.

Free Willy! The problem here isn’t the Orca logo, which has actually developed a little bit of gravitas after 15 years (can you believe it’s been that long?). The problem is the city name, which doesn’t belong on the jersey and needs to go.

The top NHL jersey’s according to ESPN:

  • Montreal Canadiens

  • Boston Bruins

  • New York Rangers

  • Detroit Redwings

  • Philadelphia Flyers

  • Toronto Maple Leafs

  • Pittsburgh Penguins

  • Minnesota Wild

  • Columbus Blue Jackets

  • New Jersey Devils

With that being said, what would you do to modify our jersey's?

Who would be your top 10?

Vancouver is about where it should be. the vancouver on the front really does need to go. i dont have a problem with the orca. id prefer the pilot but i dont want to change that much. the colours are fantastic.

how are the blue jackets and the wild in the top ten, personally i don't see anything wrong with our jersey's just leave them and soon people will recognize them as good jersey's due to the history behind them.

It's one of thsoe "who gives a !@#$" type of things. It seems like they feel obligated to rank the original 6 teams in the top 7. On top of that Chicago for some reason didn't crack the top 10. But one thing for sure is we don't have the best jerseys in the leauge, not the worst either, but Boston being top 2, is robbery. Yellow and Black? cmon

I stopped reading after I noticed that CBJ was in the top 10. Does anyone at ESPN even watch hockey or did they just see the red, white and blue and choose it based on that. Then gave each other high fives and yelled yee-haw!

I like the rink stick, its classic and simple, if they can make it a bit more retro, even better and maybe tweak the colour shades a bit, a navy blue would look pretty sharp id think.

As for the top ten list, I would certainly drop the Wild and Jackets from the top ten and probably put the Kings and Blues in their place.

If the Canucks switched back to the jersey I posted earlier, I would move them to the top ten.

Pretty crapty list, since I know Chicago is usually in the #1 spot and it's not even in the top 10.

Lol at no Chicago (who have arguably the best), and the inclusion of Columbus in the top 10.

We are about where we should be though.

Ridonculous - they have Columbus and Minnesota's listed, which are arguably the ugliest ones out there.

I don't really like the Orca either and adding Vancouver on top made it uglier for sure. I espouse going back to what we started with - stick and rink please. Most people buy our third jerseys anyways.

ESPN just lost even more credibility having Columbus' jersey in the top 10 and not Chicago.
