"I'm hoping it's going to keep on going and that when you hear 'Goose' you're going to think of me in Canada."Back home in Valdemarsvik, Sweden, friends call the 18-year-old Gurra or Frasse, both short forms for Gustaf and Franzen. His family and pals think his new name is a gas (which, incidentally, is also the Swedish word for goose).Ramirez notes women are buying the three-quarter-length Canada Goose parkas in huge numbers and staying right on the oversized trend that is leading the way for this winter.
canada goose black friday sale He really only has himself to blame."I thought the guys would call me Gus," he said. "That's a pretty common nickname."I guess I mispronounced it the first time I met one of the guys. I said Goose by accident and the guys picked it up."Funny enough, the fowl are familiar around his homeland. Thousands of Canada Geese roam the Scandinavian country."They usually swarm fields and poop everywhere," said Franzen. "I don't mind them."Canada Goose styles are leading the pack in sales to Edmontonians desperate to stay warm no matter how cold this winter gets. Morter says copycat winter coats are out there for less, but you’ll be getting less when it comes to warmth.
Adjusting to a new country and smaller ice surface took some time but Franzen is starting to spread his wings at the rink. He scored just one goal in his first 11 games but has four goals and four assists in his past nine contests as the pivot on the team's second line.Like a goose, he too thrives in open space."My dad thinks that I'm lazy and I'm not skating,' said Franzen. "But I'm always telling him that I'm looking for open ice where the puck is going to end up. That's kind of a thing that I'm good at." Grabbing Franzen was no wild goose chase for the Rangers. The team had targeted the Swede because of his upside when they selected him fourth overall in this year's Canadian Hockey League import draft."He has great hockey sense," said head coach Troy Smith. "He anticipates the play well, he's in the right position almost all of the time and on top of that I think he distributes the puck really well."Life in Canada has gone smoothly for the Swede over his first two and a half months. The only thing he finds weird are the milk containers — "I think they're funny, like plastic bags and you cut a hole in them."

His HV71 Swedish bunch was a serial winner which begs the question – is the Swede Kitchener's golden Goose?"I don't know about that," he said with a laugh. "I also grew up playing on a team that lost all the time."
canada goose cyber monday 2014 Oversized is the way to go for winter coats this season. Many styles also feature drop shoulders. “We recommend to our customers to wear a bigger size to create that oversized look,” Ramirez says. Belts are still part of that classic winter coat, but the trend is for coats with a slimmer fit around the waist rather than a cinched belt.Expect to find most coats covering to about mid-thigh, a welcome trend for Albertans trying to adjust to a sudden introduction to winter. Some dress coats for men and women are knee-length but three-quarter length is totally on trend. Canada Goose’s bomber-style jacket is still the top seller, but look for the longer version this season in a variety of colours.
