Whoever is in charge of consumer product sales with the Canucks is totally out of touch with what the fans really want.  These jerseys have been in such high demand for such a long time, I have no idea why they haven't embraced it yet.

I love everything about those jerseys except the logo, would love to see it with another one (not the stick-in-rink, not the orca, but sth completely new). We would look so badass in them...

 

Edit: okay, perhaps I'd be happy with an updated, modernized version of the skate logo

I’m in the minority here, but I still love the late 90s original orca logo and colourway. It’s what I grew up with! Would love something around that.

 

I also have a t-shirt I bought at the team store a few years ago that gets me a lot of compliments. The skate logo in black and white, with a white base. I’ve never seen this design anywhere else - could make a cool alternate.

Vancouver Canucks Modern Flying V Jersey Concept - Talk Hockey


 

I like the idea but this mock up looks more like a graduation gown than a hockey jersey.

It makes it look like Henrik waiting to get an honorary degree from UBC.

lol, the NHL is trying way too hard with the woke representation stuff

 

besides that most of these are horrendous, the previous round had nicer designs imo. The only ones I kinda like are the Canucks (luckily), Jets, Sabers, Capitals, Senators, Flyers and Kings.

It's not "woke representation stuff", it's marketing.. 

 

Most of the teams are based in the US, which given it has a population of 330M+, has a very diverse population. It absolutely makes sense to market your product in a way that represents different demographics, people want to see people who look like themselves in media. 

 

It's not a political statement, it's a marketing appeal to what the NHL likely hopes are increasingly diverse and growing fanbases. In the end it boils down to money.

The guy wearing the Red Wings jersey seems to be checking out the Habs jersey girl...

 

The Oilers being an orange oil drop makes it look like a fried egg.

 

I hate almost all of these.

Vegas checking out the Penguins too….

 

I’ve always liked the Oilers gear but they wrecked it with the colours.  Brutal

Woke whining is tiring tbh this isn’t woke stop being offended over inclusion.

those two things walk hand in hand nowadays, you can't really have one without the other.

I wouldn't say I'm whining, it's just an observation. I think it's a bit insulting though how inclusion is communicated and presented... we are treated like simple minded children, while the NHL pretends like this achieves anything... You want inclusion and diversity promoted in the NHL? Do that where it counts: help create youth programs and shine more light on current/previous LGBT+/people of color players that played in the NHL. But don't pretend that your average viewership looks like a Netflix cast just to score woke points.

My friend, they're models wearing a hockey jersey. They're likely just a bunch of models on Adidas's payroll. Would you have preferred faceless mannequins? I hate wokeness as much as any sane human being, but this isn't that. Stop tilting at windmills.
