Vancouver Canucks “Millionaires” third jersey next season?

By Vancity Buzz Staff | 8:52 am PST, Tue August 14, 2012 | Speak Up

The Canucks message boards are great place to sound off, introduce new memes and every once in awhile a great source for a potential leak. Rumour has it that the Canucks may be introducing another third jersey next year. The following was posted by 2nastie:

During this time of year, all stores who retail jerseys, hats, t-shirts, and any team related merchandises of the NHL must submit their orders to Reebok now in order to receive the new shipment before the season.

Being a hockey fan, memorabilia fanatic, and long-term customer of a store (that will not be named). I had a brief conversation today with the owner as I usually do and he gave me a glimpse of the new stuff he ordered.

Saw both the Reebok order forms and full images of t-shirts, hats … minus the jerseys for next year.

Very simple t-s.

Maroon colours. Millionaire’s V on the front (C – captain as well) and of course our captain H. Sedin 33 on the back. Same stye as the current Canucks t-s with the players name and number.

Followed by hats … etc.

BUT… no third jersey images as Reebok won’t release that to the public yet (for all the obvious reasons).

However, under all his order forms and email replies, it will be a new third and it should be the Millionaires jersey (is it 100% the same as ones from the past …. answer is NO… but a new jersey none the less).

EDIT: what I meant here was that it is not 100% confirmed nor refuted that it will resemble the old jerseys

You can call this a leak if you want or just a simple “news” for those who love new jerseys…

Believe me or not, I saw everything with my eyes. Would have taken pics, but being his customer and such. It would be quite blatant if I did right it right in front of his face.

Will it look something like this posted by Vintage Canuck:

 

Or will it retain the maroon colours?

Just for fun, what if these were the Canucks third jersey by Hamuis’ Beard:

 

Take it for what it is. It’s the summer, Luongo still hasn’t been traded and the discussion of another hockey lockout looms over like the dark clouds over Lower Uncton.  At the end of the day this may not happen at all but another jersey from the Canucks isn’t really that far fetched, there is only a few 100 variations out there.

    They just need to copy the Vancouver Giants version of the Millionaires jersey when they owned that property.

    Maroon or bust. Can’t butcher the jersey by changing the colours! Still, I’m not sold that this is actually happening, but it would be GREAT if it did. I know I’d be one of the first in line to get one :)

    I love it, they should make that their official uniform – keep it Burgendy but lose the bubble thing above the V over the laces

    I designed a bunch of Canucks jerseys and posted them on Icethetics in February, and they got very good reviews. One of them was heavily Millionaires-influenced. If you want to take a look, here’s the link:

    I liked those when I saw them in Feb. Great job man! I especially like the Heritage Classic and green alternates.

    Well, the ‘nucks are do for a uniform change. Its been almost 7 years since the current set came out. And it would be nice to see Orca Bay’s whale go extinct.
