It's still August

Preseason is almost upon us. Thank God. In the meantime we can pour over everything pertaining to the 2010 Winter Olympics. Team Canada's orientation camp starts tomorrow.

Team Canada revealed their rosters for camp and all three Penguins (Fleury, Sid, and Staalsy) are on the white roster, therefore, I am betting the white roster will dominate the red.

Also of note, of the three Staal brothers, Jordan and Marc are on the white roster while Eric is on the red. It's Staal and Staal versus Staal. If only they would air the team practices on tv, we could enjoy another Staal Brothers Drinking Game courtesy of the brilliant minds of the PH staff.

Here are the official Team Canada jerseys

Here is a close-up look at the maple leaf crest

These images were stolen borrowed from Hockey Canada's website. They're kind of going for that old-school look. Thoughts? Like or dislike? Personally, I think they could have done better, but from what I undertand, they tried to get several designs approved so this was the best they could do thanks to the International Olympic Committee.

I like the red jerseys better than the white but I think the design in the leaf is pretty cool
