Postby hahnski86 on Tue Nov 18, 2008 3:37 pm

Has anyone else noticed that penguins.nhl.com or pittsburghpenguins.com has now dawned the original double blue and white as their background colors. go check it out... the pens might be back to these colors full time...sooner than we think...

i for one will miss the black and gold!!!

It's good for a 3rd jersey but PLEASE don't do like in the past and switch to it.

don't panic... although they gave Iceburgh a blue jersey to wear Saturday. :shock:
They wouldn't change before the new arena opens.

I would agree PL, but David Morehouse did say recently that they wouldn't rule it out eventually....

I noticed that on saturday, but I think that its just up when the Pens are wearing the blue, I'd bet that they'll have it back to normal tomorrow or the next day

I think the sites look this way because the Pens are in a stretch where they are wearing the third jerseys and can easily readjust when they go back to the black and gold.

I do like the blues, but can't see a permanent return. Far too much is entrenched in the Pens black and gold history. I do see a potential for a new uniform design when the new building is completed, but not a new color scheme. :roll:

What's with the picture of Crosby's rookie year on the pre-game tab for today's game? They can update the entire background and flash to match the third jerseys but they can't find a more recent picture of the team's captain?

I really do not think that they will go to the blue full time. I do wish that they would go back to the SC era jerseys though

So, you've been reading the site with your eyes closed, eh? :)

I don't notice anything like that ever. If the functionality doesn't change, I don't notice it.

I think Dana Heinze is running the web-site and he's changing it before each game.

I wouldn't mind taking the light blue color jersey and just putting our current color scheme to it...

I have to say kicksave, that as plain as they are, those are some pretty sweet looking jerseys.

I like simple looking jerseys.

I wouldn't even mind getting rid of the bottom stripes, but I just used our light blues as a basis for these. I like Dallas' jerseys.

Put the real gold in there and you have a winner. Tan is lame.

I like the original gold myself, but I don't think they'll ever go back to that.

Humor me with that in original gold and larger numbers on the back for Steigy. :D
