Not that bad, especially compared to the USA jersey which I always liked. The one they have for this year is ugly

I don't get the hate, it's not bad, not fantastic but not offensive like the new Sabres jersey, yuck!

Not great, not horrible. I loved the Russian jerseys and hated the Americans' so this one is somewhere in the middle. Not something I'll be buying, at least.

They should have gone with the 87 Canada Cup jerseys.

Why is it so hard to get the jersey right? Solid color + maple leaf. That's it. That's all you need.

Looks awful.

I assuming this is still a demo model but the simple pasting of the Canadian flag on the sleeve has to go at the very least.

They never should've changed those... EVER.

Greatest hockey jersey of all time IMO.

I bough a Nike repro of this jersey in Florida last year at a bargain store called Bealls, $10 in a discount rack!

If this jersey was a cartoon character, it'd be named Pepe LePutrid.

Everyone designing jerseys these days should be fired. Honestly, why, all of a sudden, is the pressure to come up with something "fresh" and "new" and "hip" resulting in such wide-spread and repeated failure? Plenty of great jerseys over the years, but now apparently using simple colours with simple patterns/themes is beyond the capability of the industry.

This year's honestly looks like something that would be overpriced at $20 in the New Brunswick border tourist information booth.

Just about to write the same thing. I guess differentiation means more merchandise dollars but I wonder what the design costs are. There is nothing wrong with having a logo and sticking with it for a number of Olympics , no need to refresh for the sake of refreshing .

Imagine what would happen if someone got the bright idea to change the Habs logo?

Not that bad? Bro, are you kidding me?

This is awful. The 2010 one was perfect. Or at least make some jerseys that look like the ones in the 2004 World Cup.

Wasn't the entire idea behind new coke to make people cry out to bring back the 'old' coke that was lagging in sales for some time? I imagine he got a raise when all was said and done.
