UNIFORM NEWS & NOTES: CANUCKS EYEING NEW LOOK AND NAME?
Published March 3, 1997
The Canucks are considering a possible change of uniform design and colors for the next NHL season, according to the VANCOUVER SUN. GM Pat Quinn said the team has looked at a blue-based jersey, but no final decision has been reached. Also, the Canucks denied speculation that the team may change its name. Canucks VP/Business Operations Steve Tambellini: "No way. The name will remain the Canucks" (VANCOUVER SUN, 2/28). Northwest Sports Enterprises Ltd., partner in the Canucks, reported a loss of $9M, or $8.97 a share, for the six months ended December 31. That compares with a loss of $3.1M, or $3.07 a share, for the period last year. Northwest attributed the loss to "lower attendance levels, increased hockey operation expenses and the absence of any income tax recovery" (VANCOUVER SUN, 3/1). CUBS: The Cubs debuted their new alternate road jerseys yesterday with the "walking bear" logo on the front. The royal blue bear is surrounded by a red "C." The Cubs regular road jersey has "Chicago" written across the front, replacing the script "Cubs" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 3/3). JETS: The Jets wanted to make changes in their logo, but were told by the NFL they were too late to do anything for the '97 season (Gary Myers, N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 3/2).
