Vancouver: What's your favourite Canucks jersey of all-time? (POLL)

The Vancouver Canucks are going retro tomorrow night, wearing their old black, yellow, and red “flying skate” jerseys.

People love them. I have to admit, they look good.

But I remember back in the day, these jerseys were not celebrated. They weren’t ridiculed like the Flying V jerseys, but certainly not a favourite.

In fact, the flying skate jersey was tweaked every few years.

The skate jersey was yellow at home from 1985 to 1989.

They switched to white at home and ditched the V-stripes on the shoulders in 1989.

That lasted until 1992 when they switched the orange on the jersey to red.

In 1997 they moved to the orca jersey:

That lasted until 2007, when they went back to blue and green:


Of course the current jerseys are a bit of a throwback to the original Canucks jerseys:

The “stick in rink” logo was used from 1970 to 1978, when they switched to arguably the ugliest jerseys in professional sports history:

And of course we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the history of Canucks third jerseys.

The salmon jersey (1995-97):

The maroon gradient (2001-06):

And of course the present-day third jerseys:

Ok, it’s time to decide! Out of the 137 (approximate) different editions of the Canucks jerseys, which one is your favourite?
