I think some real laces would make a massive difference. Those fake reflective strips look SO BAD.

Yeah I don't envy yzerman or hockey canada they're damned if they do and damned if they don't in just about every player... Yes their b squad is a gold medal favorite. The only guy I think they made a mistake on was Nash, IMO St. Louis was a better option.

And I kind of like the Swiss and Sweden jerseys (you can't even call them sweaters lol) but other than that they're pretty bad.

I can't tell which are Home and which are away... They both have the same color scheme. How is any team with white jerseys going to play them? Is there another jersey not shown that is dominantly red?

We may not like the Rangers but Nash can be a pretty useful player, in 2010 Nash was more in a power forward role and i expect the same this year. He's big, fast, can score, he's strong, can pass, forecheck, hit, has good hands and can score in SO. You need that kind of player

if you want a power forward IMO Thornton or lucic are much better at that role. And Nash on this team might be the 8th or 9th option in the shootout.

I agree though that he was probably a compromise in they wanted a big body who's more than just a power forward, but IMO he's not the best option, ranger hate aside.

I thought the US jerseys were bad, but Nike has managed to F up the entire Olympic field outside of Sweden.  Just horrible.  Way to go Nike!

Marty St. Louis / Tyler Seguin / Claude Giroux / Eric Staal / Jordan Stall / Taylor Hall / Marc Staal / Brent Seabrook / Joe Thornton not making the team is quite debatable to say the least for Team Canada.

 

Why do I have a feeling that a sleeper team will take it?

I will say that I'm shocked Giroux didn't make it. Thought he was a lock. Eric Staal too.

I'd argue that this leftovers team could give a decent run to the US squad lol. (hey sh!t talking is part of the fun)

 

Hall - Giroux - St.Louis
Couture - Thornton - Ladd
Skinner - E.Staal - Neal
Lucic - Seguin - Iginla
Richards - J.Staal - Little

 

Seabrook - Staal

Letang - Boyle

Alzner - Phaneuf

Methot - Hamonic

 

Crawford

Fleury

Bernier

 

It's not sh!t-talking, it's the TRUTH.

There is always that joke that Canada could send a "B" team and have a chance at silver or what not, but this time it is really true. That team above is loaded and on a day with better goaltending, maybe win Gold. Canada has an embarrassment of riches right now in the league. The depth has never been this good. No Rob Zamuner, Shane Corson, or Kris Draper likes on the actual team or "B" team.

Of those jerseys posted on the previous page, Sweden, Latvia, and maybe Switzerland are the only teams wearing something that actually resembles a hockey jersey.  I can't wait until the day Nike is no longer making the uniforms, they have absolutely ruined international hockey jerseys for the past eight years.

The Nike jerseys this year are an absolute embarassment, in 2010 they were actually pretty nice but I agree 2006's were mediocre, these are just flat out hideous though.

Sweden's management had to fight back pretty hard to not get huge changes done to the jersey. Nike wanted to go some place totally different with it.

I wonder how St. Louis really feels about Yzerman leaving him off the Canadian squad. His own GM ... damn.

I can't imagine what Nike would've wanted to change with it. Sweden's jersey is iconic, as is Canada's, more than any other countries'. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That should hold true in graphic design, fashion, whatever. Nike's ridiculous, some of these will be dated by 2015...
