Baby Pens unveil new jerseys, marketing campaign

Quite the flurry of personnel/organization news in NEPA the past few days. I'm not sure if I love the jerseys or dislike them. Thoughts?

I like them... but it REALLY doesn't go with the green plaid shorts. :D They're different, but not bad at all.

I think I've decided that I like them. My only nitpicking is over the modern style collar on a jersey that's supposed to have a retro look. I think the lace-up collar would have looked better.

They've had a lot of jerseys in 10 years, which you can see here

My favorites are the 04-05 blue thirds and the 03 gold thirds

I think they are ok, but I don't care for them. Too plain in my opinion.

The arms are way too busy. I'm not liking them...or that slogan. Canaan was right. Lame.

How much do you want to bet they use that Bon Jovi song "Make a Memory" (?) in all their season montages?

The new jerseys mean that their shop is closing out old items. When I was there last Wednesday, they had about 20 boxes of new shirts and stuff (none that were listed on the website).St. Patty's Day jerseys are down to $85, practice jerseys (all size 56 and black) were $50. They had t-shirts in a box that were marked as clearance. I think they were half off.

I'm probably passing through there again within the next month if anybody has any questions.

Not a big fan of them, but then again I'm not a big fan of any hockey jersey that just has the team or city name written across the front.

Agreed. Where's the creativity in doing that? An awesome crest really makes a jersey.

Jersey modled by Robert DeNiro's character from "TAXI DRIVER."
