he already has them, but is in the process of breaking them in, so he'll wear the yellow ones for a while. sorry, i dont have any pictures, but they have to be better imo than the ones now.

all tsn says about the look is that they are gold and match the Pens color scheme.

also the article says Eastwood may move to the top line. that i cant figure out for the life of me...

why would Fleury change his pads? The one's he has now are GREAT.....weak crappin' sauce. :p

Hey, I'm on a roll, I've had 2 posts on the Pens board in like 10mins....that's more than I've ever posted here before in like 2 years :D haha

Anyways, I really like the pads he has now, I think they work well with the colour scheme, and are quite unique in their brightness....

I agree, his current pads kick almost as much ass as Dutch's avatar.

Eastwood should not be the first line center. Let Kraft have another shot for a game or two. Not much to lose.

Eastwood is doing fine on a well working third line. Breaking that up and putting Kraft in makes that line ineffective. At least putting Kraft on the top line has the chance of keeping things decent, at worst only making the top line ineffective.

I liked Fleury's pads. The Vegas Gold is not too bad on the uni's, but I think it will suck on pads. We'll see...

Eastwood is better than Holzinger and 5 points is pretty good for him, but I would rather see Kraft on the top line, oh well. I'll live.

I LOVE the gold they have on the jerseys, so Fleury will look better in new pads. He doesn't need bright yellow pads to stick out. :yo:

Once he got the contract the pads were probably ordered and he has probably been breaking them in since he got them a few weeks ago I'm guessing.

Barrasso briefly in '95 or '96 wore a set of all-black pads. I thought those were awesome.

Yep, I remember. My favorite set.

bah, I was hoping that he'd stick with his yellow pads...they were unique.

Having said that, if he has to change, i hope he gets all black (that's how i have him set-up in my ESPN NHL Hockey game)

Personally, that's why I really like his pads, because from a distance, or if the camera swings by him quickly, it LOOKS like they are old school pads from back in the day :D

Why?!? I love his pads right now. When I put this pic in my avatar someone mentioned he looks like a mustard container. I think the pads he has right now are sweet, why would he change?

Since the reaction tends to side with keeping the mustard pads, then maybe the answer is to lose the Vegas gold on the unis and replace with mustard gold like his pads. Hell, let's replace the white on the 'away' jersey and make it mustard gold - could scare the other teams into submission that way. :D
