They looked a lot better on the players. Maybe with some gear, it'll look cooler.

A huge "meh" though. Trying to be optimistic about it.

Logo is way too small. The Blue one looks okay I guess.

I'm sure the guys at Reebok are dying of laughter right now.

I like how people complain about the recent trend in laces, and now Nike uses fake sublimated ones to annoy them further! I don't believe it. The ones from the last Olympics were awesome, not sure what happened here.

I guess it's not so bad it's ugly; I won't be tempted to buy it now.

My first thought too...why is the logo so tiny?

Edit: I thought the stars could work based on the design pic, but after seeing them in the Guerin picture...don't like it. The fake laces are even worse.

The least offensive aspect is the weird shield and even that's bad. The sparkly shoulders and lack of waist stripe are awful.

I cannot fathom how the designers/Nike could have possibly looked at these jerseys and thought "yeah, this looks great!"

Don't even get me started on the fake lacing.

Between the black stars on blue, the fake laces, the tiny, odd logo in the middle of solid color, I don't think there's much else that they could have messed up. A solid disaster all around.

Alright...

- The logo is too small
- Fake lacing(WTF)
- I don't like the stars

They should go back to a revamped 1980's jersey.

I think the 1980 revamp would have been met with almost universal

What the hell is the point of those airbrushed laces on there? So needless and a stupid addition. But it's Nike so they probably think they're on the cutting edge and innovating hockey jerseys.

I liked the sublimated details on the old jerseys, but the stars here are way too shiny. Had they a more flat finish it might work better. Overall though they're OK, despite the ugly bubble butt shield.

Eh, I don't like them. What's with the stars or the laces? Why is the shield so small?

I dont know why people hate the crest, its just an updated version of the one used at the 1932 Olympics.



2004 World Cup retro jersey
