1. When the Pens originally wore them (which was well before my time), they just weren't that good. This jersey represents mediocrity to me.
2. They aren't the Cup-era jerseys, which I've always wanted back since they were ditched. I don't think anything they've worn since is even close to as good as those were, even factoring out the franchise was at the pinnacle of it's success (to this point, anyway) when they were worn.
The odd thing is, that despite the above, I thought they worked quite well at the Winter Classic. I guess it was the outdoor setting with the snow falling.
Hard to argue with anything you have said here.
The PB's don't represent mediocrity to me because I have only been a fan since 1995-ish, but I can def understand that perspective.
Hard to argue with the Cup-era jerseys, they were pretty sweet.
