Default Hockey Canada Unveils 2022 Olympic Jerseys

Huge miss. The target market will hate them.

Dislike that tone of red on the two black jerseys. Could be just an optical illusion, but it looks like more of a pinky/orange colour. Why not stick with Canadian red?

Also, the design of the maple leaf is too out there. Why not stick with something closer to the actual design?

Could have been a pretty great set of duds with actual Canadian colours and symbols.

Do not like. Would be better if they just slapped the 13 flags of the provinces and territories all over.

I wish the Hockey Canada logo featured a real player (Gordie) like the NBA has with Jerry West.

But no one else has commented so I guess it is just me.
The Flames actually have the opposite effect...the black C makes the red seem deeper/brighter, whereas the classics look a little more orange (though perhaps it has more to do with the yellow)

I personally don’t get the hate of the jerseys. They are simple and sharp.

I think it's a missed opportunity to honour and pay respect to our First Nations communities.

With how good the crest on the 2010 uniform looked, they should have just rotated which nation's artwork was featured every 4 years. Would have been a cool and recurring tribute, making each jersey really unique.

What I see in the maple leaf is two crossed hockey sticks in (those are the blades at the bottom) and I think it is subtle and slick.

You're seeing something that isn't there. If it was intended, one of lines would share the angle with the negative space triangle at the base.

I mean.. I don't hate them. They're just a bit too minimalist and harsh. But at the same time, they look kind of imposing with the jarring color contrasts.

I think I'd prefer if they were more consistent and had the outline around the leaf that's on the black jersey, and did it on the others as well (eg: black outline on the white jersey, white outline on the red). And tie those colors into the stripes as well so it doesn't look out of place . Basically just sprinkle a third color in there to soften it.
