Team Canada Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Since unveiling the new Team Canada uniforms in August, they've already made a change to the socks. As seen on TSN during the photo shoot for the recently announced 2006 World Junior squad, one coule see that the stripes on the socks are now a traditional horizontal, almost matching the same pattern as the vertical stripes on the jerseys, again with a Team Canada logo in the middle. Can't yet find a picture of the new socks, but here's one of the old :

Now if only they would change the rest of the uniform back to something decent...

What was so damn bad about our last design? I loved the classic look, and the red alternate is one of my all time favorite uniforms. I'll never understand why they chose this design, but whoever did should be taken out back and have his ass kicked.

Man, they look like speed skating shuits, not hockey uniforms

Let us remember that this design was to originally display Canada's gold medals in some fashion, and that the USA abomination was going to feature miniscule excerpts of The Star-Spangled Banner in random areas. WTFs all around.

If MasterCard included Nike uniform designers in their Peyton Manning series of ads ("Here we go insurance adjusters, here were go"), we'd probably see Peyton booing and maybe throwing snowballs and bottles at these guys on their way to work.

Those old socks make him look like he's wearing shin guards.

Actually, the entire uniform makes it look like they're extras in Tron.

...and that ain't a good thing.

Message to Canada: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Shin guards is exactly right.

Those arm stripes make me nuts they way they start and stop in the middle of the arms. Think how much better they could look if they were like the Bruins jerseys and started at the wrist cuffs and went totally up and over the shoulders and back down to the other wrist. You could have a white space break to allow for the sleeve numbers though.

I hope some of the World Juniors makes it onto the NHL Center Ice TV package in the US like is has in the past so I can see exactly what they end up looking like in action.

I love it when players revolt against revolting jerseys!

Now that is a close fitting jersey.

Actually, that jersey looks better than what they're currently planning to use, and not just because it's on a woman mannequin. Make it the correct cut, throw on some numbers, and it wouldn't be too bad.

Well, kinda. Take away the girly cut to the body, the boobs and any hints of shiny material and you'd be headed in the right direction.

I'd still continue the white stipes up and over the shoulders. Like I said before, just re-color the Bruins jerseys to red & white and you'd be better off.

Maybe not. Why couldn't they just stick with what they had if they couldn't come up with anything better?

Both of these are definitely better than what they currently have. I agree that the second one is better--the vertical stripes make me think of the long sleeve t-shirts I worn to play roller hockey. I guess the vertical stripes just don't say professional-level ice hockey to me.

Now if only we could somehow get the US to make some changes--maybe we can protest at the X on Monday when all the USA Hockey brass are in town to announce the Olympic team: http://www.usahockey.com/usa_hockey/news/m..._menoly_120105/. Otherwise, it would have to come down to a player revolt. I don't know why Nike designed these new sets when both Canada and the USA had perfectly good sets (in the US's case, both the '02 and '05 sets were good).
