As long as they don't start animating them it should be fine. I'd rather they not do it though.

I don't think they animate them during play, but they definitely do during stoppages. Also to show the winner at the end of the game; that was pretty cool.

 

I don't really mind them, but I find that the synchronization with the camera movement can be a little off sometimes, and that's really annoying.

My Uniform Rankings

 

1. Europe

2. Sweden

3. North America

4. Canada

5. Finland

6. USA

7. Russia

8. Czech Republic 

 

random thoughts:

 

- North America's radially arched nameplates are a cool touch. I wish an NHL team would give that a try.

 

The Rangers do it on their fauxbacks, and the end result is that they look like they're wearing the lousy NHL Shop/Fanatics replicas that can't be bothered to vertically arch the nameplates for the Rangers or Wings.

 

It's hard to spot on TV unless you're really looking for it, but I saw some WCOH replicas up-close, and the numbers for every team, and noticed they all have a mesh dot pattern screenprinted on the twill. Does anyone know if the on-ice jerseys also have the pattern printed, or are they doing something akin to adidas' Rev30 NBA jerseys, and sewing mesh on top of a twill layer? Because if it's the latter, and if that's coming to the NHL with the adidas contract, ugh.

I've read somewhere that the twill is actually perforated.

Sweden hasn't been wearing their yellows in this tourney and that is a travesty.

Agreed. The first game I saw with them in their blues I was happy as you don't see that jersey as much, but it's a shame the primary wasn't on display as much. Particularly with that distinctive yellow.

Not that I care about the World Cup of Hockey (or as I call it The Training Camp of Hockey) but I will admit I love those Team Europe uniforms. I love that pop-art style logo and I love those 2 tone blue uniforms. Even the white ones are nice. It would be epic to see an NHL team adopt that look.
