If Colorado was still a good team it would be amazing to have a winter classic in Detroit with those two teams.

The only thing about the Pitts sweater is that it will be on the ice this January. What happened to parity in the league? Giving bottom feeders more of a chance to shine? Money/Pitts/Ratings love.

I'm still unhappy about pens getting the nod over the many other teams who haven't had an outdoor game. So Lame.

Pens jersey is fugly. That overweight penguin is just wrong, and waaay too many stripes. Should have stuck to just one big blue stripe imho.

The caps jersey is nice, kind of wish they went with the tie downs at the neck. It gives the jersey a "vintagy" look.

Yeah, I'd have to agree on it being unfair to the other teams having the Pens in the Winter Classic again. Although it will be a nice match up, I'd much rather see a Leafs v Habs Winter Classic or at least a game with one Original Six team in it :(

Also, yeah, those jerseys aren't anything too special.

There will never be a canadian team in the winter classic. I believe there is a outdoor game in feb featuring two canadian teams.

This is going to be a fun game to watch. Also the HBO documentary thing that is going to go along with the game is going to be sweet.

I think they both look bad.

I hope they do something different next year, like Penguins vs. the Penguins.

didn't you hear bro everyone is going to boycott it this year, so I doubt theyll even have one again :rolleyes:

I think it's lame how Pittsburgh designed new uniforms. It's even more gimmicky than having two Winter Classics this year.

Honestly, I know it's a business decision, but as a fan I would hope the Wings would stick with their '08 Winter Classic jerseys if they are ever allowed into the Pittsburgh Classic.

Pittsburgh Classic.

:rotflmao:

Yeah, I'm probably being a bit biased, but I think the wings winter classic jersey is the best looking throwback jersey in the league right now. Its simple, the logo is classic, and more importantly it uses THE TEAM COLORS! I don't understand why the pens and other teams go through these phases using an alternate color palette.

Personally, I wouldn't mind it one bit if the wings adopted the WC jersey as an official 3rd jersey. I'd love to see it back on the ice.

Not too shabby for either team. And still bleck for Pittsburgh being involved in 2 before other teams get even 1 chances at it. Not fair to the other teams (yes I get TV/ratings etc., it's still not fair to the other teams).

Pittsburgh jersey...an ugly jersey for an ugly team. But of course, every 13 year old girl in Pittsburgh is going to beg and plead mommy and daddy to get one.

I still think the best WC jerseys thus far have been Detroit and Chicago.

That made think of how great that HBO thingy would have been about ten years ago with DET/AVS :starwars:

Avs are still a decent young squad. But yes, nothing will compare to the games of '96-'98.

Nordiques jerseys would be sick though.

The Caps jersey is 70s/80s retro and cool,

The Pens jersey is just.......hideous. A total monstrosity. You know what it reminds me of? You know that episode of The Simpsons where Homer gets to design the perfect car.....? They shoulda gone with the early 90s diamond penguin uniform, Mario, Jaromir, 2 cups etc.

the Pittsburgh one is about so damn s* ugly, that I can see 15yr old kids s*ing their pants about it.

which would be like 50% of the Penguins fanbase, so the P&R guys of Penguins are apparently good at

their job.

I wonder if they (P&R guys) though for a while about changing the team mascot from the lame penguin to

some *** vampire. Hannah Montana is not good for a logotype, so vampires get the nod, you know ;)

seriously... these jersey is ugly. plain and simply ugly. you could only make it worse by adding

some pink and some shiny, glittering sequins. though, there's always Winter Classic 2011 which,

sure like hell, will feature the Penguins, so there's fair chance we will see pink then :)

and I'm all for league finally letting another team play winter classic. we know, Gary, that your

precious Sindy sells. we get it already. time to let some other team play. and no, I don't mean

Florida, Dallas or Phoenix. seriously ;)

I like the Caps' one for what it is - a throwback jersey. For something that came out of the '70s, it's pretty spiffy (especially after recently watching the Flames and Kings play in their throwback gear...I had to stop watching the Flames before I went blind). If they had just come up with it now and announced that it was going to replace their current one permanently, then I wouldn't be such a big fan.

The Pens' jersey is just plain fug. It doesn't even have the excuse of being retro because they just threw a bunch of old elements together. Major Frankenjerseyitis. Even if it was authentic, though, I'd still think it was ugly. I agree with Nev that they should've just gone with the early '90s Lemieux-era one.
