Are the jerseys actually done? Or just not being worn tonight?

Regardless of why they are gone, they are gone. Decision was made by the brass, so its out of our hands. I'll have an extra drink for this reason tonight.


Do we have a list? Big Injuries I can think of:

Crosby WC game and last game was in blue.
Malkin was in black for his knee injury.
Jeffrey in white for his knee.
Staal in black when his foot was cut.

Who else? Letang, Fluery and Martin all in black, right?

Oops... I was never good at that stuff. :)

I'm excited for this news only because I hope we see something like the early 90's jerseys. Or something like these...

I’m not a superstitious person, so it’s hard to put myself in the mindset of someone who is. That being said, going into a contest where you feel uneasy--for whatever reason--right from the outset isn’t a good thing. If wearing the blue jerseys contributed to such a feeling for some of the players, then good riddance to them.

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

My guess would be diagonal PITTSBURGH.

I never really liked the diagonal Pittsburgh jerseys much either. But that's better than those blues.

Thats my favorite Pens jersey. They'd get my money almost immediately if they brought that in as a 3rd. Actually if they do any of the black and gold throwbacks, they'll get my money. I said this as soon as the idea of a 3rd got floated. Not sure why my money isn't more important than the however many thousands of other people who bought the blues' money.

They'll start targeting the 90s generation next imo. Which most likely means a return to the old black/gold at least in third jersey form.

I'm up for the black jersey 90-92, since that one was always worn on the road.

What year are their third jerseys from currently?

I was looking back through their uniform history and can't find that particular jersey.
