Pretty cool, nothing crazy or flashy, but looks pretty sharp and clean.

I was hoping for a return of the diagonal "Pittsburgh" Snoop Dogg jersey.

I'm not happy. I've always hated yellow jerseys.

Hate the numbers on the top of the shoulders. Should have just went with the old sunday gold jersey or invested the PITTSBURGH one to be gold.

I was going to buy one if those became the new thirds. These, not so much.

Interesting. I was hoping they'd go with a "Sunday Gold" ...which they kind of did. I'm digging the numbers on the shoulder, just wish they would have rounded out the shoulders farther down towards the elbow like on the older jerseys. There feels to be too much black up past the elbow. Also not sure if I dig the single layer "C" and "A"...but that's minor.

One bonus is moving away from that hideous thin collar of the home/away.

I don't think Letang is doing the Jersey any favors by standing there like he got caught pinching and gave up a 2 on 1.

It's a clipped image.

It says "THIRD" On the left hand side of the image, the right hand side reads "PAIR"

Carryover from Stadium Series jersey. I much prefer the standard logo. Oh well.

That's a stick? It looks like an inverted baseball bat.

I still have one of those from the early-to-mid '90s.

It's a little tight on me. :face:

That's from ALL THE washings amirite? ;)
English muffins? What's up with all the nooks and crannies on the shoulders? They belong on my breakfast sammich, not a hockey jersey.
The numbers on the shoulders is bad placement imho. And the gold helmets would be gawdy even if they were the same shade as the jerseys. In that photo, they do not appear to be afaict.
And the sleeves are just bad. But as Rissling said, to each his own.

meh... Love the concept of going back to that color jersey, but there are enough little ich and ughs that make me want to forget about it. However, let's see how they look (and perform, only winning in them might change my mind ;)

Can you at least say you hate "gold" jerseys?? I've always hated when people say black and yellow (looking at you Wiz)... :)

On a side note, I think one of the major tragedies in the NHL is that the home team wears their dark jerseys. There are so many great unis in the league that we never get to see live because every game looks the exact same. Saying it's major might be a bit of a stretch, but I can't tell you how bad I hate it!! :roll:

Sorry. Gold is a shade of yellow. What I see there isn't gold, it's yellow. Of course, I'm colorblind, so what I actually see is grey, but I at least think it looks yellow. :D

I remember when they made the switch to home teams wearing the dark unis. I think it was because fans preferred the dark unis to the white ones, so they felt they'd sell more jerseys if they had the dark ones at home.
