New, comments

So, do the popular kids approve?

I’ve always been really into fashion so of course, I’m the best guy here at Nucks Misconduct to discuss this “leaked” news with you.

See? Fashion is my jam.

The real question is, can the Canucks say that fashion is their jam?

I mean, at the very least they can say they aren’t stagnant after a Reddit post earlier this week leaked pictures of the Canucks new jerseys for the 2019-20 season.

As you can see, the big change here is the Canucks losing the word “Vancouver” from the jersey. The lettering was formerly rumoured to be slapped on the jersey to promote the city ahead of the 2010 Olympics.

The other change to the jersey is the slight adjustment to the “Stick in Rink” logo on the shoulders.

It’s no coincidence that the changes are coming on the heels of the Canucks 50th anniversary season. They previously announced that the flying skate jerseys will make a return next season, along with an “unleaked” third jersey as well.

I guess I’m in the minority here, because I don’t get all the pissing and moaning about the Orca. In my opinion, it’s hands down the best jersey the Canucks have every had. The Orca represents something that’s actually West Coast, not just a bunch of lines thrown together to make a skate.

There’s also enough blacks, yellows and reds in the NHL too. You don’t have to look much further than Calgary to find the same colour scheme.

Blue and green though? Not only is that original in the NHL (sorry, Hartford), it also represents the West Coast! What a concept! We live in a land of vast oceans, a land where evergreen trees are sprawled throughout our mountains.

And most of you want to go back to copy cat colours and a non-West Coast logo? Pfffft.

Anyways, that’s my two cents on the fashion news. As you can see from above, I’m clearly the expert on this.
