I hope not, that’s just too close to Vancouver (but I love the combo personally).

I could see Green and…something.  Brown?  White?  Gray?

The Sounders and the Seahawks have the same colors. 

Once is an accident.
Twice is a coincidence.
Thrice is a pattern.

Thus, the speculation that the new NHL Seattle team could be wearing blue and green colors.  Wasn’t the Canucks original colors orange, yellow, and brown?

Yellow red and black I think SYF, may be wrong. 

I’ve heard round the watercooler that red white and black may be the colors but I’m in your camp, I’d expect some kind of combo involving blue or green.

We haven’t won a cup since you stopped sending me pregame fodder brother, hope to see something in the inbox on game day this year buddy.

Blue and green with a simple hockey stick was the original uni, the brutal yellow V was the late 70’s and early 80’s.

For what it’s worth, he was given a black and white jersey at the announcement. Good colors for a placeholder.
