    My first thought when I saw that:  Where's the beef?

    Jesus, he's huge.  Good for us.  Maybe he'll take the first four months to "round" into shape then rip in Sochi.

    Tell me this doesn't look like I win the "who will come to camp all bloated and fat?" pool!!

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!




    I'm thinking he wins the "who will come to camp and kill someone" pool...He's always had that Level 3 look to him. Just a strange looking cat.

    Hope Canada's jersey isnt that bad. So far Nike has done an awful job on USA and Russia's jersey.

    Canada's jersey is bound to be lame/boring/unimaginative/common.  It always is. 

    Here's how they come up with it.

    Designer #1:  Hey Lucien.

    Designer #2:  Yeah?

    #1:  Where do you want to start with the Canada jersey?

    #2:  Same place we always do.

    #1:  Can't we get creative?

    #2:  No.

    #1:  Just the same thing, switched around a bit again?

    #2:  Dude, it's Canada.  It has to be boring.

    #1:  Oh, you're right.  I'll get the red fabric, the cutout of a player and a coupe of leafs.

    #2:  Nice.  We're almost done already!

    I would love it if they had the Hockey Canada Player cutout logo. In Vancouver they were not allowed to use that logo because it was considered a corporate logo which is not allowed in the Olympics. I know the logo they used in Vancouver was a one time thing (maple leaf with subtle design in the leaf). Are they allowed to use the traditional HC logo in Russia or will it be a new unique olympic design?

    The worst thing Canada could do with their jerseys is have too much black. The total area of black in the design is directly proportional to my approval rating. Which is, of course, their end goal. My approval.

    Read the whole Puck Daddy article when you can. I almost lost it with the Jimmy Howard bit.

    And this is different from the conversation they have about the American jersies...how?

    Fabio: How should we do the stripes?

    Andre: who cares, as long as the stars sparkle!

    Fabio: No, seriously.  Is Phil Kessel going to wear this?  Because we should definitely think about using the stripes to make him look thinner.

    Good God, no.

    I saw this article and was wondering how long it would take to post this picture...Phil slouching on a stool makes him look worse than he is.

    However, looking at his face leads me to believe Phil skipped the boring, tedious workouts over the summer to catch all the eating competitions at the local fairs in Ontario.

    One too many Cronut burgers at the Toronto C.N.E. methinks...hope he doesn't get food poisoning.

    Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread. Those jerseys leave a lot to be desired.

    Simply Awful. Everything about this picture is disturbing. The god-forsaken shoulder stars. the ridiculous looking shield. The flag of Monaco on the arms, the stupid faux laces...and lest we forget the gritted teeth and awkward, uncomfortable look (I assume it's supposed to be the look of determination) of our favorite whipping boy, Phil Kessell.

     

    Did the girl from Napoleon Dynamite take this photo?

    I like the shield.  It's similar to the one from 1932.

    Everything else sucks.

    I definitely prefer the 1932 shield - less curvature to the shield than this model. I find the more pronounced curvature makes it look a little cartoonish. I also don't like the font for USA in the new one. The shield may be the best part, but I find it even a little weak.

    That's just nitpicky, Red.  Come on.

    Re: Jersey Trends

    Maybe, just my opinion though. I kind of wish that both the US and Canada would find one good logo and just stick with it. The USA Hockey logo is fine as it is imo

    http://doubledeke.com/images/team_usa_logo.gif

    And I was pretty impressed with the 2010 Canadian logo

    http://www.clothingcanadafashion.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/2010_Olympic_Jersey_Logo-DEBRA-SPARROW.jpg

    Why not just stick with what works?

    I still prefer the letters U.S.A going down the sweater. I realize they want to sell jerseys but they could tweak the rest of it slightly to make it appealing. Plus, when they win the gold, people are going to buy it anyways.

    Just when I'm okay with not being a professional hockey player like I once dreamed, a picture like this comes along and I think What the F*#%??

    We're gonna share a block of cheddar cheese, some ranch dressing, and a Smirnoff Ice.

    Seriously though, if you know anyone who's getting a little too cocky, just show them that picture and say "He's a better athlete than you".  

    Devastating.
