    Ugly. I hope this isn't a new trend in jerseys.

    I don't have a problem with the "tightness" or the new material of the jerseys.

    But the design sucks. They should have kept the old striping.

    From what I hear the NHL is making a move to the same style of streamlined jerseys. It will be part of their "it's a new game" marketing scheme.

    wow, that's friggin gross. jersey is too small, the socks look like ass...

    I think the current team Canada jersey's are the best in the world, I have no idea why they would change them

    As for this technology, I hope the other countries have it too. I don't want to watch a game where we're basically cheating

    Huge thread on other boards about it. I say the red stripe looks like blood running out of the back of their pants but at least they don't have more unfortunate colors, like yellow, brown or green.

    Whoever thought this design up should be fired. Out of a cannon. Into the sun.

    Wow...if those are the jerseys the NHL was talking about, I'm really, really scared to see some of those fat guys in the upper deck squeezing into a replica sweater.

    Can we even call them sweaters anymore? What are they now, underarmor?

    Is there a better picture of this anywhere? It's hard to get a real good look at what the jersey looks like, they may be fine, but I'm not crazy about the socks.

    Boy, Simone doesn't looked to thrilled in this picture.

    Im not too thrilled with the jersey, the design is a bit odd, but im worried that all the NHL jerseys are just gonna look daft if in that style. Before the lockout, i told myself that if Kovalev re-signed with the Habs then i'd buy a Kovalev authentic red Habs jersey. Throught the lockout i waited and waited to find out what he would do. And eventually the good news came through that he was signed. And i told myself i would definately buy that jersey. But if its anything like that then i might not. Wait and see on that one.

    As for the socks, looking at the pic in the link above, it looks like he put his shin pads on over his socks.

    It should also be noted for the people that didn't see the jerseys is 'action' on TV that there is another plain red line up the back of the socks.

    Pretty much the same size as the one on the front but it's plain red, no design.

    I'm actually ok with the "Euro" look. I'll also give Nike credit for doing something new - I remember being excited about the unveiling of the new Coyotes uni, and Phoenix couldn't have come up with a duller replacement if they tried.

    Not too keen on the socks, though.

    Have any players commented on the functionality of the new get-up?

    And is TSN right? Is this the Cooperalls of the new millenium?

    Yeah it looks like a cross between a Euro uniform and a sort of '70s hockey sense of colours and style. I hate everything about it.
