Details about the new 3rds:

The uniforms will mirror the retro-themed ones worn against Buffalo at the New Year's Day NHL Winter Classic. The alternate design borrows from several early uniform incarnations and consists of a predominantly baby blue sweater and socks, with navy pants, gloves and helmet.

Hmmm. "Borrows". Will they have to give it back? :P ... 93157.html

Maybe it will have Pittsburgh going diagonal on it.

NO NO NO NO NO! The Pens are Black and gold, (not VEGAS gold or even that beige crap) I'm talking yellow gold. If anything, the team should go back to the Cup uniforms when they move into the new barn. It's not that I hate the powder blue uni's (I personally won't buy one) but Pittsburgh is the ONLY city in North America that all professional sports teams where the same colors. I call it Pittsburgh Pride but that's just!

I've relented a little on the powder blues and can live with them as a 3rd (even though either Cup jersey or the yellow Sunday jerseys they wore in Mario's early days would have been way, way better choices IMO), but no way should they go to them full time.

That said, they aren't wearing black and gold right now either. Call it brown, tan, khaki, beige, or whatever; it ain't gold though.

on your side, net.

i want the primary jersey to be the cup era jersey. that was a sharp, intimidating jersey.

the baby blues are okay, but yes, ONLY as a third. pittsburgh is the only city with black and gold as all of it's teams colors. i cannot see tradition being messed with, especially since they didn't incorporate any blue into the new banners (which im still iffy about them changing).
