BLUE JERSEY IS DEAD

RIP to franchise's worst -- and most cursed -- sweater. Memo to NHL: Next alternate design, remember team's first name, too. Black & gold.

Congrats to the PITTSBURGH Penguins on their organizational decision today to ditch the blue. Overdue but still welcome. #TribHKY

What does he mean, "remember team's first name"?

If they would have done this 4 days earlier, Crosby wouldn't have a broken jaw.

.@BEPeters Did they truly ditch them? Or did they meet contractual obligations to wear them? // Obligation not met, but yes, gone for good.

The win streak has ended... the Blue sweaters just beat the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Ridiculous move. (if true)

NEVER turn your back on your heritage.

These blues weren't heritage. Far from it.

They were an abortion of different stylings. The logo was never actually used on a jersey, the colors were inverted... It's just terrible.

Arent the very first baby blues more indicitive of the Pens heritage than these crap things?

Also I would classify a decision to not wear a certain jerseys as "ridiculous." Its what they want to do.

Never said they were an exact replica... (Although they should have used exact replica's)

Still doesn't change the fact that they were a close approximation.

You can argue the fine points all you want, but this organizaton had a long history prior to switching to Black and Gold.

Just say'n.

The baby blues were cool. For 1 game played outside in the snow. Black&Gold-not that Las Vegas beige vomit they wear on their sweaters now-but the old style was classic and will always look good. Do it RS.

Yeah, that's what the baby blues were for.

These were a pure cash-in for Bandwagon fans. Can't blame the team for selling them, but we can for wearing them. Utter stupidity.

The baby blues were fine, and like I said for the winter classic(s) they're okay. But not for 6 games a freaking season when the team's goddamn colors are black and gold. If you want blue and gold travel the extra mile and a half down Forbes.

I wish they could just wear different special jerseys throughout the year like the AHL does. Would like to see the digital camo ones during a game around veterans day
