Like Tiranis says, the full kit could end up looking great out on the ice. And within the larger trend of 2014 Olympic jerseys I'd say we got off light compared to what the Americans (and to a lesser extent the Russians) are wearing.
Yeah, but first impression is that it's better than most of the recent jerseys, especially those terrible 90's incarnations with the giant half maple leaf scrawled over half the front of the jersey.

I don't mind it saying "Canada" because there will surely be some people watching from somewhere in Africa or Taiwan or wherever that might not immediately find it recognizable. There are a ton of European nations it takes me a second to figure out when I'm watching...
