They're not the only ones, I'm sure Adidas, Under Armour, Asics, and others think they could have come up with a better design. Hell, I bet Ed Hardy would've done something better.

These jerseys are flat out bad. All that detail on the shoulders with the stars and the fake laces don't belong on a hockey jersey, they belong on a figure skaters unitard. I wouldn't be surprised if these don't sell well at all.

Well they'll probably look just like USA's, but instead of stars on the shoulders, they'll be little maple leafs.

Did you miss your last eye exam, Elmer? Regardless, you need to get your eyes checked.

Many things are a difference of opinion, but there is no way around the visual brutality of these beauts. You couldn't pay me to wear one of those POSs.

Screw the skates, I'm in favor of finishing off the ensemble with clown shoes, a big red nose, and some face paint. If they want to make the unis into a total joke they might as well run with it.

Hey, maybe the stars will look like snow when playing under sharp lights. I also think they will look better with pads. I think they're growing on me!

There's no whining about it. These are just flat out ****ing brutal. If you like these I have a hard time imagining anything you WOULDN'T like.

Nike calls those fake plastic laces "Nike Flywire," claiming that they "provided a closer fit to prevent slipping" while "also providing a nod to traditional lace neck design." http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2013/8/2...-olympics-nike
The jerseys are just as gimmicky as the Oregon University ones Nike designs .It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure out the same guys design the USA jersey.

Quite possibly the ugliest jerseys I have ever seen. Just horrendous. Don't know why the complete overhaul previous jerseys. Team Sweden pretty much rocks the same jerseys for every tournament.

If it weren't for the faux laces and stars, this would be a great jersey. Too bad the "stars" and "laces" ruin it.

Surprised Nike hasn't tried a modernized version of the 1980 jerseys

What? I genuinely don't like the laces, stars, or logos. That doesn't make me a whiny traditionalist.

Some of you act like the stars and laces are printed in some dramatic fashion. The Stars.. it's a nice touch without adding too much. The laces.. are well.. meh. Whatever. I could live without them. But, that doesn't change the fact that they are still pretty nice.

The dark jerseys are nice.

The white ones are awful. There is nothing going on for 90% of the jersey. That and the transition to the colour portion on the white jersey is awkward.

Haha, so true. Even Don Cherry would've done better jerseys

I'm sorry, but you repeating that you love them ten times on one thread page won't change the fact that those belong in the trash.

And those are just as horrible as these.

It's pathetic. Vomit inducing.
