What makes it all that much worse is the small Canadian flag on the sleeve. It just screams "$1.99 outlet souvenir t-shirt". At least if it were just a plain white stripe on either sleeve, then perhaps I could live with it. I'm really curious now to see the remaining 9 teams (and the white Canuck sweater). They can't all be this bad, can they?

Looks like a knockoff in my opinion. Why do jersey designers think that a waist stripe is not mandatory. I have a hard time liking any jersey without the waist stripe.

Also I dont like the lack of shoulder patch. Eventually if this trend plays out I will become used to this style. But until then I will scream stick to the classic template dammit!

Wow, after seeing that Canada's jersey, those team USA jerseys don't even look so bad...


...But now i'm afraid of my teams jerseys, what if Finland has something as awful as the North American ones?


I'm seriously afraid that they might revive this horrific logo from 89-91:



That btw. Is the jersey Jari Kurri used at IIHF world championships in 91.

Will probably look the same as always, but still.
I hope they don't touch the swedish jersey, it's classic and doesn't need any modernizing or whatever.

I'm guessing most, if not all teams, will be outfitted by Nike and will have the same generic cut as the jerseys revealed, which means subliminated laces and probably much more subliminated designs on the shoulder.

Are we trying to out-do the USA in the terrible jersey contest?

At first I thought the jersey is kind of plain and souvenir sweatshirt like. But then realized that the jersey design is still missing the player numbers that will probably be on both shoulders, which will improve the look.

That said, still not a fan of the shiny shoulder bits or the stupid faux laces. Also I question having a band around only one arm and not both or neither... just seems lopsided. Also gold edging around the maple leaf? really? seems like hubris (although I guess this is similar to the US jersey having the years they won gold inside the jersey and Russia having the gold stars on their sleeves to represent the number of times they've won gold).

I can't decide if I just hate it or utterly despise it. It's one of the two.

The 2010's were very nice, and we won god. If it ain't broke...
Tweak it a bit, if they must. But they should revisit that look.

That seals it for me, I will not be watching the 2014 Olympics. My own personal boycott over Nike corporate idiocy and the lunatics working there who all apparently suffer from substance abuse problems.

Looks like a cheap knock-off that you find in the bargain bin of an outlet store. At least team USA has a symmetrical jersey. I greatly fear what they have done to Sweden.

Hopefully this will only be a third sweater and they go back to the Vancouver design for the rest of the tournament.

Well, what can you say? I think it looks better, cleaner if nothing else, than the USA one but there are still many things wrong with it.

Well, that is the absolute ugliest Team Canada jersey I have ever seen. It couldn't look more like an EA Sports version of Team Canada's jersey.

Oh, I dunno. Those mustard-coloured ones from a few years ago were pretty bad. At least this one is red.

True, but I am guessing that this is the jersey that they will wear for the duration of the tournament. It will look better with a gold medal in front though.

I actually really like it. I love the thick white band; I only wish it was on both arms. I hate asymmetry.

Kind of expecting that now, this should be a theme.

Wont feel too bad if Swedens jerseys will look like crap, at least we're in good company if so.

Not great, not terrible IMO. I'd personally love it if we ever went back to the classic Canada Cup-style jerseys from the '70s and '80s.
