So apparently it seems like I’m the only one who likes the USA Unis unveiled the other day which means I’m the only one around here with any kinda style sense. Well if you hated those then the threads that host country Russia will don this winter will make you wanna murder babies, at least their white set will anyway.

Subtly yet not so subtly the Siberian sweaters are laden with their overt intentios of capturing gold a 9th time in front of their home crowd; the whites display their 8 Gold Medals down the right sleeve while the reds display the russian flag trimmed in gold as it’s sleeve stripes along with said 8 gold medals on the shoulder yokes. Everyone’s gonna cringe when the rock the whites but here’s why it’s sick: the entire white of the sweater (body and arms) is a silhouette (big word for you beauts I know) of their 2 headed eagle national crest. Creative and distinct yet simple and stylish for a 2 week tournament that happens once every 4 years. Dope city. Well done Nike, I approve.

Whatever you feel about the unis worn by each country, theres no question the ugliest thng in the tournament will be Phil Kessel..

TODAY IN THINGS THAT SUCK: New Hurricanes Unis

TODAY IN THINGS THAT SUCK: New Hurricanes Unis

By Doud

Following in the footsteps of Tampa and Phoenix we have yet another case of a non traditional team attempting a traditional look. Gone are the creative and iconic hurricane warning flags in the arm and lower body striping and in are normal bland stripes that you’ve seen on hockey jerseys a million times over. Oh and they don’t match from home to away sets.

Also gone is the iconic Carolina color-way of their gloves in favor of all red which are like anything you can buy in any hockey shop. Awesome.

Note to all teams that aren’t of the original 6 (hate that inaccurate term btw): you are not traditional teams. Don’t try to be. Embrace your creativity and special design cues.
