Once I saw that both the Russian and US jerseys had these same design details I started to worry about the Canadian jersey, but never in my wildest dreams did I envision that it could be this bad. How do you screw up a maple leaf?

I get that they are doing a radical overhaul of all the jerseys so that everyone will have to buy the new updated version (same thing with NHL teams getting new jerseys every few years). In this case I hope it will backfire thanks to the hideous designs.
The "cheapness" of these jerseys (across the board) is what strikes me as well.
