Enough of the fascination with powder blue! No need for the Pens to celebrate their past by conjuring Peter Lee, Dave Burrows, Gary Innes and other early era Pens who won nothing.

Leave the powder blue for the third sweater, wearing them occasionally. Wearing them full time would make us remember why they got rid of them in the first place: powder blue as a main color doesn't work.

Yeah, I love the Black and Gold, and I really want to see another slight update to the skating penguin, and a return to the yellow-gold, it would look awesome with a tweek, adding more than the yellow triangle to incorporate it. Again, if they ever go back to the blue on a full basis, it will be a sad day for hockey.

pens will never give up the black and gold.
the city would be too upset.
they almost kicked the pirates out when they introduced a red jersey.
the city lives off the fact that its sports teams all share the same colors.
like i said before, if anything i feel the pens might go back to pittsburgh black and gold once the new arena opens rather than the vegas gold.

I hope it's going to be similar to the Winter Classics jersey.

RIP Alexei Cherepanov

"The alternate design borrows from several early uniform incarnations"

matches what was said from a much earlier article, from Pittsburgh Hockey.net

"The Penguins scrapped their plan to unveil a new third jersey in the 2003-04 season.

It would have been a virtual replica of the Columbia Blue jersey with the circular crest and tie-down collar the team wore, mostly in



Penguins changing back to two-tone blue full time?...

Penguins changing back to two-tone blue full time? I doubt it. Too many of the city of Pittsburgh's symbols are black and gold. It's in our blood.

My guess would be the Penguins following the San Diego Chargers model. Maybe change the third jersey every five years or so, but always make it powder blue. (When the Chargers brought back the powder blues, they were throwbacks, but the new

2008-10-14T01:15:00.000-04:00

If the new 3rd jersey "borrows from several early uniform incarnations", that would seem to imply that it's not the same jersey that they wore in the Winter Classic last year, since that was simply a re-release of their 1968-69 jersey (adapted to the RBK Edge cut, of course).

2008-10-14T00:48:00.000-04:00

Additionally, I really hope this means the Sabres wear the same vintage white jersey they wore in the Winter Classic last season in this meeting, as well.

When I was at the Kings/Sharks game at Staples Center on Sunday, I came across a woman who was wearing this jersey. I have to say that it looked absolutely remarkable, and cyan is a color that very closely resembles penguins and the frigid temperatures in which they live in, as well as blue being the color that represents "cold".

I think it would be very fitting that a hockey team named
