What Do You Think Of The Vancouver Millionaires Look?

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

When you think Vancouver and millionaires and Stanley Cup finals, who comes to mind?

Seems fitting that the Canucks’ $64-million man, Roberto Luongo, and his team will be wearing the awesome Vancouver Millionaires throwback uniforms on Saturday as the team hosts the Detroit Red Wings.

The Vancouver Millionaires, who wore maroon and ironically got paid dirt, won the 1915 Stanley Cup, sweeping the (barely) pre-Alfredsson Ottawa Senators in a best-of-five.

I like them, not too garish and the maroon color is nice. Better than the obnoxious kelly green and royal blue used by the current Canucks. No other team really uses maroon in the NHL. You have the lighter burgundy with Minnesota and Colorado and the brick red in Phoenix, but a good dark Maroon isn’t used by any team.
