What is up with James Neal's pants in the winter classic uniforms? They don't match anyone elses... They are a re-coloured version of the primary uniform pants.

Jimbo, I posted pictures of that recently. My guess would be that if the Penguins do make the 2011 Winter Classic uniform their new alternate next season, perhaps they'll use redesigned pants to match their home and road uniforms.

No, God, no. Not those pants, those don't go with the look at ALL. I kinda like the look, as long as they wear the right pants

what is the significance of the 250 patch?

Apr 3 · 4:22 PM PDT | Unregistered CommenterEBS

It's a reference to the 250th anniversary of the city of Pittsburgh, which was founded in 1758.

That watered-down gold looks terrible.

I assume I'm one of the few people who prefer Vegas gold.

Apr 16 · 8:14 PM PDT | Unregistered CommenterRiatt

I liked the Vegas gold on the 2000-07 unis - mainly because the gold stripes are of nice, shiny gold material (hence actually looking metallic). The Edge versions look much more flat, more of a matte Vegas gold, thus looking much duller by comparison. Seriously, Reebok, you couldn't come up with shinier material for the fabrics in those panels?

I'm about equally disappointed with the template itself, specifically how Pittsburgh, Ottawa, and Tampa Bay pretty much stuck to it with very little creativity. At least none of those teams went with a contrasting color on that vertical piping that runs down the sides and wraps around to the back (Pittsburgh sticking with their uniform body color on that piping actually creates a decent separation effect between the gold underarm panels and the contrasting rear-bottom-side panels).

One interesting thing about the powder-blues is that they've used a two-tone version of their modern number font - introduced on the 1996 alternate, and based on the sleeve numbers used on the 1988 and 1992 uniform designs - instead of the chunkier, old-style numbers from the late 60s. Oddly enough, though, I think the modern font works fine here.

And then there's the 2011 WC unis. I can only hope they think better of the thought of adopting these as new thirds; at the very least, if they must, they really ought to scrap the "vintage cream" and go with true white - instead of looking dingy, the added contrast of actual white would make those uniforms pop.

Pittsburgh is my favorite team but i HATE the home and away jerseys. They should make the powder blues their home jerseys and a white version for away jerseys. As far as alternates go it should be the navy Winter Classic jersey. No black and vegas gold, go back to double blue!

vegas gold sucks. go back to black and yellow like the Steelers and Pirates. that's why they changed colors in the first place.

May 1 · 6:08 PM PDT | Unregistered CommenterMatt

To me I love Pittsburgh and always have I really dug the Black, white and yellow gold of the 80's all 3 versions(home away and alternate). But the only time I liked "Vegas" gold on them was the jersey from just before the RBK Edge crap came in they were a very very classy jersey that I guarantee would have become one of the NHL's best jersey sets before they went with the color by number Edge crap-a-form uniform system. I really with they would go back to that. I liked the powder blue as an alternate but the best uni combos for Pitt could be the Black and whites I referenced from just before the Edge and if they want a blue jersey the Rimouski jersey from when he was there(re-logoed and colored to fit) would be cool

I agree with Matt. Loved the black and yellow. The Vegas sucks.

Aug 1 · 7:48 PM PDT | Unregistered CommenterSkip

If they replaced the faded gold in their jerseys with classic bright yellow, the Pens' sweaters would be fantastic. And I love the over-stripedness of the 2011 Winter Classic/new thirds.

Oct 16 · 8:08 PM PDT | Unregistered CommenterJake Shapiro

The Vegas gold looks too watered-down. The Pens need to return to the colors--with the skating penguin, of course--they wore during their first two championships.

Mar 10 · 5:16 PM PST | Unregistered CommenterScott K.

I hate the Pens third jersey. Absolute garbage especially when you already had a great third with the powder blue.

Mar 17 · 3:24 AM PDT | Unregistered CommenterMon

It's a shame such a good team wears such crappy uniforms. Their colors are black, white and PUKE. Anyone calling that gold needs their balls cut in half. And the Edge cut needs to be done away with and replaced with a more traditional design.
