Pens Jersey Question

Postby pghteams on Thu Aug 21, 2008 3:01 pm

We know the Pens are going with the blue third jersey, but are they going to update the hideous "1st" and "2nd" jerseys?

The Pittsburgh 250 patch will no longer be on the right shoulder.

League rules mandate that a team can not change their primary home and away jerseys for 2 years once they are official.

They couldn't change them if they wanted to until next season. But I wouldn't be too surprised if they stuck around and were replace with a new set once they move into the new building.

Even the horrible Islanders fisherman jersey needed to be used for 2 years before they could get rid of it. However they skirted the system and put their traditional Long Island logo on the front of their hideous wave jerseys for the second half of that second year.

The reasoning for the 2 year rule is to keep teams from constantly changing jersey and gouging the fans.

Yes. They showed no imagination. They should have just stuck with the previous jersey.
