I think there is a backlash for "core" fans because I think they associate the blues with the bandwagon jumpers and there is still a hostility between life-long fans and the more recent fans who are just learning the game. Just my humble opinion.

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.

And I think that's how most fans feel (as evidenced by the poll on the official site).
