The new look lasted 20 minutes. For one period of running-time scrimmage yesterday, the Team Canada players wore their new Nike Swift sweaters and socks. After that, Team Canada 2006 executive director Wayne Gretzky sent a message down to the bench: That's enough. Go back to the regular sweaters. The Nike sweaters were prototypes of the ones Team Canada will wear in the February Olympics. They are sleek, synthetic and tight. Far too tight. "I didn't even wear it," said Rick Nash who put on a phenomenal display yesterday and snapped home a couple of beautiful goals. "I couldn't get it on. It was way too tight. I didn't bother."
