Pittsburgh yellow is like Rangers blue. Personally, I'd prefer the unflashy version, but Vegas Gold does have that out-of-style-before-it-ever-came-into-style thing happening. So you can be that futuristic-hipster guy if you want.

Yellow... If the Pens needed to make a change I wish they would have traded black for grey. Grey and that yellow would have looked good together.

I REALLY wish we'd bring back the air raid siren so I guess I think we should bring back the sunflower gold with it.

So yeah, we should've been yellow from the start. The old Pirates were yellow. The only reason we were blue in the first place is because some dude was trying to promote his own brand.


But yeah, obviously yellow. Far better to me, but I'll accept the cup jerseys in vegas gold if they do it WELL. Numbering and lettering can't be like the crap Wilkes-Barre is throwing on the back of their's.

Vegas gold. I love it. How good it is is evidenced by our socks.

Plus it's unique, unlike the Pittsburgh Bruins stuff.

I don't mind the yellow, and I would love to see a third that makes more use of it.

That said, I like the gold, and I have since they went to it. What they need to do is redesign the jersey so it isn't a recolored sens jersey. Lousy Reebok

There are actually two types of Vegas gold which might be part of the issue. There was the "shiny / sparkly" vegas gold from the years around the fire sale, and then there is the current Vegas gold which is flat and not sparkl-rific. Vince likes the the current Vegas, not the old vegas.

I know this. But take our current blue 3rd jersey...the 2011 Winter Classic one. There's nothing vintage or anything that resembles a "nod to our past" about it, besides the fact that it has the original logo from 1967-68 on it.

I dunno. To me I thought we did our part in honouring our past teams back when we had the powder blues in 2008. Why we keep going with blue especially when our current blue coloured 3rd jerseys have no historical merit (inaugural logo aide) annoys me.

For our next jerseys (3rd or not) the designers should have like a "Vote On What We The Fans Want" kind of deal.

Just my $0.02

Yellow. Yellow. A million times Yellow. All Pittsburgh teams should be black and yellow. and plus, all of the Pens' best jerseys were black and yellow. but i could tolerate vegas gold for main jerseys. just give us a black and yellow third!

Curious here.. Would anyone like to see 'Pittsburgh' worked into the Pens Logo. Maybe someone could draw it up.

The yellow is my favorite (thinking early 90s cup years), but they would be too retro to bring back for my sensibilities.

I like the Vegas. I think they look sharp. I wouldn't be opposed to bringing back the yellow though (they probably will in a few years just because), but I would need to see how they do em' ...

Fans loved the powdered blues, so it kind of made sense to keep blue in the format. Also, factor in the rumors that they want this era of team to have it's own identity and not resemble the 90's teams by wearing the vintage Cup era jerseys and it makes sense.

Myself, I'll always prefer Vegas Gold. I dislike the Steelers, and considering that Black and Yellow (gold) is basically synonymous with the Steelers, I love that I don't have to watch my favorite hockey team wear those colors, or wear any merchandise with those colors. Also another reason why I hope we always keep blue in the color template at least for a while.
