Take your first looks now. I'll have more in a little while. These images are from the streaming online video of the launch that took place this afternoon at GM Place in Vancouver.
there should be a team canada symbol in that ice right now
Well, I was prepared to hate it, but I have to say I think the new look is killer. It has a retro look, especially with the wordmark. These jerseys look tough compared to a lot of the other new "stylish" ones. This is a hockey team, not a modeling agency.
Ugly. The many different concept jerseys by fans were way better. the vancouver wording would've been ok had it been smaller. It just looks like a huge mess. Like some retard said "hey, lets mix the old jersey with the new logo and then add a giant VANCOUVER above it." they didn't even try to make it all work together.
If not for the wordmark, would rank right behind Boston's as the best so far to me. I just don't understand why the wordmark. I see that they are trying to reach all Vancouver hockey history but why? Just the NHL history would have been fine.
you guys paid money for that design, and their are freelance designers that have better concepts online. what a joke.

RE: what stars white jersey?? is there a new leak? August 29, 2007 4:25 PM -} No, i meant the current one. which, you've guessed it, i find quite ugly.
Hahah, they did it again.I guess with their identity crisis (numerous uniform changes in the past) "VANCOUVER” across the front is to remind them what city they play in.Awful!!!! They had a chance to bring back Johnny Canuck but blew it.No doubt in 4 years time it will be new logo and colours
hate the VANCOUVER wording the rest is not that bad
Its Bettman's fault *snicker*Seriously...lose the Vancouver and these jersey are fine. I love the color scheme.
I'm wearing my vintage stick jersey today, and I'm looking at the new jerseys... I kinda like em.My biggest concern was colours, & we kept the blue/green. I'm not real big on the "Vanvouver" across the top, but it looks good on the goalie.
I don't know who I should vote as the worst logo in the NHL, the buffaslug or this hideous jersey?What do you guys think?
As a Vancouver fan, I actually don't mind the new jersey. The Vancouver wordmark is a nice throwback to an oldschool jersey, and they kept the key colours. All said and done, we could have come out far worse than this.
Then they should just make the goalie have the Vancouver on his jersey. I like the colors, and the logo actually doesn't look as bad as I thought it would. It looks really sharp on the ice.However, I didn't like the horizontal stripe on the bottom, and I thought if they had to put the City name on it, then at least make the letters smaller, it overpowers the rest of the jersey.
Wow. That "Vancouver" is just awful. Like people have said, it will be gone next season. I like the old colors and don't hate the orca, but these unis are awful.
I love the jersey, but the Vancouver has to go.
this is worse than the buffaslug
I'm really surprised at the negative response. These are GREAT jerseys. They have stayed true to tradition with colur and design, and haven't adopted any of the horrible Rbk design element that have ruined so many of the jerseys seen so far. If I were a Canucks fan I'd be really pleased right now.In reference to the Flames jerseys to be revealed on Sept 4th, don't get too excited about big changes. The teaser video on the Flames website shows enough of the jersey elements to confirm that they will be identical to the Quad Cities Flames jerseys revealed several months ago, i.e. the concept jesrey on this sight which was based on those jerseys is correct... no doubt about it so don't waste much time eagarly waiting for them... you won't be seeing anything ground breaking. The only design element that remains to be revealed is the shoulder patch. The flaming horse head is gone, and a new one will be added. I'm happy that the one element of the old Flames jersey that I did not like is gone (the "V" shaped striping on the abdomen), but they have unfortunately adopted some of the stupid Rbk piping that pointlessly polutes alot of the new designs. Oh well, could have been worse, but I wish they had stuck to tradition like Vancouver has done with great success in my opinion.
Someone should start a petition with signitures or emails or whatever against the new canucks jersey. The Canucks should take a poll as to what fans like and don't like about the new jersey and what it is missing and maybe its not to late for it to be changed before they go on sale. As for the Vancouver being on the jersey, is it on the jersey for tourism/publiciy purposes?
I love jerseys, but these are terrible. I agree that they would be much better without Vancouver written above the logo.Chris? Did you get my Email? I sent the updated concepts.
The wordmark just kills it, the front looks too crowded, and how will the fit a C or an A?
I AM THE BIGGEST CANUCKS FAN IN THE WORLD AND I HATE TO SAY IT, BUT THESE NEW JERSEYS SUCK!!!!! THEY MAKE ME WANT TO PUKE IN A BUCKET AND THEN EAT IT!!!!!! ='(
Close but no cigar. I like that they went down the road Boston took in going with the horizontal striping instead of vertical, the blue and green are great, but that damn wordmark... Once they wake up and kill it from their jerseys, it'll be one of the best in the NHL.
I wanted to somewhere to vent, but I see I've been beat by everyone. I hope Zimmerman or whoever is responsible for this disaster reads ALL these comments because those are a joke. I saw so many nice concepts that I wished were chosen, but they go back to the '70s look, and to make it worse they add the scripting to the top. F'en boneheads! I guess I wont be buying one anymore.
The orca logo doesnt realy fits on the new jerseys...was great with the old jerseys. And please take the wordmark away.
