    So basically Nike is going to ruin every set of jerseys they make with the “laces”.

    Alas, these aren’t bad, I think the one on the right is pretty sweet.

    Please let this be Nike’s last year of this. Are they even trying anymore? It’s almost as bad as Canada’s. I want a little bit more effort than just cutting a neck hole into the country’s flag and calling it a jersey… and the fake neck laces… Why?

      Because they can.

        They can have real neck laces too, but…

    Wow nike has done a horrible job with all these jerseys. I can’t stand the fake laces.
    Hopefully they’ll look a bit better on the players once they have their pads on and all that

    I actually like the one on the right, but the fake laces thing is just flat dumb. Add them for real or don’t, but this just looks ridiculous.

    The fake laces on every jersey is ridiculous. To think, someone got paid money to say, “You know what these jerseys are missing? Fake laces!”
    USA’s are the worst tho

    I wonder if it’s strictly Nike employees coming up with all these designs, or do they get any input at all from each country’s Olympic hockey team management? Oh well… I guess in the end the only thing that matters is who wins, not how bad/odd/plain the jerseys all look…

    No. Just, no.
