Can't stand these. The best bet for any uniform is a classic look. As one poster mentioned, the '10 throwbacks that looked a bit like the Miracle jerseys are the ones we should have went with. Also, what is it with national sports teams using dark blue to represent us??? The flag is like royal, I hate the dark blue all our national teams are using.

Exactly. If there's anything the sports world hates, it's change. Keep it simple, keep it in line with classic designs.

All three of the jerseys worn in 2010 were awesome, would have loved to see those back with a tweak or two maybe

I like the crest.

 

Hate any jersey that doesn't have stripes along the bottom and somewhere from the elbow down on the sleeves.

Everything about these jerseys is embarrassing.  No one will buy them.  Nike doesn't understand what hockey fans want.

No, they don't. They just keep re-inventing the wheel. As a rectangle, apparently.

UUUUuuuugly!  but they'll look great on the T-shirts I'm sure I'll see plastered all over Lake Placid.

They aren't as bad as everyone is making them out to be. The stars on the shoulders and fake stitch is the worst part. I think people are just piling on.


I agree that the previous two olympic jerseys were far superior, but they aren't abysmal.

I agree that's the worst part, but that alone makes them awful. It looks like a 6 year old girl's craft project.

IMO, the crest is ok, and the blue jersey would be ok if it didn't have the ridiculous stars on the shoulders AND, more importantly, had real laces instead of whatever the hell is on there now.

 

The white jersey is probably the ugliest sweater since the introduction of the LA Kings' Burger King jersey in the late 90's.  There is very little that can be done to make this POS look any better.  Just horrible, horrible execution by Nike on what should be a very easy jersey to design in my mind.   

 

I loved getting an email about the on sale date for these jerseys.  Got a good chuckle out of that one.  I hope USA hockey isn't counting on making any significant money from jersey sales this time around.

Haha I hate them but it's not THAT bad.  They are much better than the first Nike Swift jerseys they came out with for the 2006 Olympics.  Those were far worse, and these also aren't as bad as most of the Reebok Edge jerseys.

 

 

They still suck though.

Ugly.

 

Looks like a Rangers sign with a nutsack.
