PITTSBURGH IS ON THE CLOCK? No site has been selected for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft yet, but Pittsburgh has stepped to the front of the table as the leader (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review). The city's main foe appears to be the Tampa Bay Lightning. Last year the draft was held in Minnesota. But that's not all the Penguins are up to in the middle of the summer. The team is also going to unveil a Mario Lemieux statue outside of the arena at some point before then. Certainly a worthy gesture.
We haven't hosted the draft yet, so this would be great to have with all the changes being made to the forum.

A few differences from the '04 jersey are the inclusion of the current logo and the striping being somewhat different, but overall I think it'd make for a sharp alternate.
I like the '04 jersey on the right. Hopefully they add a black 3rd jersey down the road since the Bolts jersey and our home jersey are both blue. The 10 year cup anniversary and 25th season could be a good time to make a tribute to that original black jersey with the white shoulders. I'd love it if they did.
