I wouldn't say I love it but I don't hate, although I'm really hoping that the lack of a stripe on the one arm is only cause they aren't full bands around the arms and the camera angle makes it look like there isn't a band on the one arm... I'm not optimistic of this though.

It would have been apropos, for these crappy jerseys, if they spelled Canada wrong.

It looks like the Canadian identity (as exemplified by the prototype Jonny Toews) has been fleshed out in this jersey.....

i'm 50/50, not outright BAD like the Russian ones, but I'll wait to see the whole kit on before bashing it. First thought was bad but it might look pretty classic once everything's together


still hate the fake neck laces

Not bad, not great. Canada has had worse...but they've had much better too.

I love the Russian jerseys and hated the U.S. ones, this falls somewhere in the middle.

That is horrible. Winning the gold in those just won't be the same.

Put a solid white line near the bottom, add laces and they would look good imo. I want to see some more views with the one arm stripe cause it COULD look good if it was done properly.

pretty bad when you have to say "not as bad as USA" in order to feel remotely good about this design

Worse than those? I can't think of a worse looking jersey that Canada has worn than that.

2010:



2006:



2002:



1998:



Not a single one of those is worse than what they revealed yesterday.

Well, that made me stop laughing at the US jerseys...

This jersey looks cheap. Incredibly cheap. I hate the asymmetry on the arms. The logo looks like a Petro-Canada sign. And what is with the fake laces and shiny maple leaves?

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.

To me the Russian ones look like the hockey version of an Ed Hardy shirt. If you're over a certain age that's not a good look.

All I can add is please please PLEASE no effing vertical striping on the socks. Dear gawd, anything but vertical stripes on the socks. Plus add a waist stripe, a stripe on the other sleeve, get rid of the fake laces and plastic maple leafs, add some trim around the collar...

...Screw it. Get Bauer to make 'em now that they're separate from Nike.

just awful

there ought to be a protest against these.

Team Canada's hockey sweater was perfected in 2010. It should NEVER change.

Took this quote from an article on sports logos website.

'UPDATE (Sep 6/13 13:51 ET): More reports coming in from my almost always reliable sources, now saying that what we’re seeing here is, at most, an alternate jersey — but certainly not part of the primary set. We’re also working on getting more details on what the actual primary jersey set looks like (if this is indeed an alternate) and we’re actually starting to get some information that would suggest this is just an alternate after all. Potentially good news there.'

The "cheapness" of these jerseys (across the board) is what strikes me as well.

All of the jerseys with black and silver are worse, IMO. I also hate the Hockey Canada logo with a passion.
