Canucks jersey ranked 17th in ESPN power rankings

ESPN Canucks

Free Willy, the beloved Orca whale that is on our teams jersey, was ranked the 17th best jersey in the NHL. The number one spot went to the Montreal Canadiens and rightfully so. It’s clean, crisp and has history and tradition behind it. On the other hand, our logo and uniforms seems to go through an identity crisis every five years. There is even talk of bringing in the Vancouver Millionaires jersey as a future third jersey

Free Willy! The problem here isn’t the Orca logo, which has actually developed a little bit of gravitas after 15 years (can you believe it’s been that long?). The problem is the city name, which doesn’t belong on the jersey and needs to go.

The top NHL jersey’s according to ESPN:

  1. Montreal Canadiens
  2. Boston Bruins
  3. New York Rangers
  4. Detroit Redwings
  5. Philadelphia Flyers
  6. Toronto Maple Leafs
  7. Pittsburgh Penguins
  8. Minnesota Wild
  9. Columbus Blue Jackets
  10. New Jersey Devils
