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

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.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

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.

Think about how awesome it would have been if there was a camera following Claude Lemieux when he went on the red wings bus.
