Sochi is Russia's time to shine, so i guess they're the only country that gets nice unis.

I was going to add that caveat, but left it out to keep my point clear.

I agree. Stupid sexy Sweden.

Not as bad as the US jerseys...and that's the only compliment I got. Are those shiny maple leaves on the shoulders? So what are the chances that these are just practice jerseys?

This is what happens when you let the same design team that creates college football jerseys design Olympic jerseys. At least team USA got stripes on each arm. I still stand by my statement that none of the teams had ANY input on the design process.

He really doesn't look happy to be wearing that jersey.

Toews face says it all.

Why would Nike try to fix something that wasn't even broken in the first place? The jerseys the teams wore in 2010 were classics, no fixing required, so why even attempt something like this?

I mean, Nike could have made a modernized version of the '72 Summit Series jerseys for Canada, and a modernized version of the 1980 jerseys for the USA. But that would have made way too much sense.

At least the USA ones had the right idea with the throwback crest dating back to the 1930's, it just had poor execution

This jersey, on the other hand, is a mess.

The Russians have the best jerseys out of the ones that have been revealed so far AINEC, but they don't really have much competition in that department

Sweden will have shiny crowns on their shoulders (and if Nike can mess up a classic jersey such as Sweden's, then we'll REALLY have problems)

First off Russia's is sweet. Second this is way better than USA's. Add a stripe on the other sleeve and take away the stupid leafs on the shoulders and the fake laces and its way better than 2010

The IOC said so. No trademarked logos allowed, or something like that. Thus why the Hockey Canada logo is no longer used.

Why they couldn't just use the 2010 jerseys again is beyond me.

It's not too bad, IMO, but definitely a step-down. I'm just going to purchase and sport the ones from 2010.

Well, at least I know I have $150 more in my pocket to spend on beer next summer. Not wasting my money on a jersey I could design with a pen between my ass cheeks
