Yep I know that, I am not at all against changing jerseys per se, but Lou took over mid 90's and the current color scheme was implemented before jersey won the cup in 1995 and has remained unchanged since. If it isn't broke, dont fix it.

NHL doesn't have many revenue makers, jerseys and apparel remains a strong one. Especially for a popular team like the pens. IF the penguins were to make a major change to uniform, I see that coinciding with the new igloo in 2010. I don't see them wanting to break from the city's black/gold tradition and brand.

The Pens aren't going to switch to blue full time, or at least I would be completely shocked if they did. This organization is very in touch with the fan base & seems to understand the Pittsburgh sports landscape very well; they know Pittsburghers are proud about being the only city where all it's pro sports teams wear black & gold. If anything, I think the baby blue will be like the Pirates red, just a third jersey color sort of situation.

I hope you're right. If they switch to the blues full time, I'll be upset. Obviously it won't change my love for the team, but I love the black and gold and the team's good years have been represented by these colors, along with the city. I hate when teams change their whole color scheme. The team has no identity then.

I don't mind the blue as a third jersey. But they better keep the black and gold full time.

I'm with you new, I do hope that if the thirds are sweet that they wear them more than one or two times. I really didn't like the Steelers thirds at first, but the more they wear them they grow on me.

I don't know, but I'm not buying one. I have too many jerseys. They keep changing them all the time. I'm done.

If this happens I will be VERY pissed...

So, we won't be seeing you at any games at that time then?

I heard this from my wife, but it was after I brought up the new jersey. I got a WC one and we were talking about the new one and I said that they will be similar, and she said, "You have too many jersey's, you're done, your not buying one." :shock:

I'm hoping they are available to purchase online. If not, I might not be able to make the pickup.

They already got rid of black and gold. They've been black and brown for a while now. Pfft.
