how many teams are left still using the same jersey template they did when they switched to the edge jerseys? (teams like detroit & rangers dont count since their jerseys never change)

Ottawa still uses the same template, but you gotta think they'll be making their current 3rds their primary jerseys and going to create a complimenting home version.

I guess Vancouver does too, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them change theirs either. (back to the rink logo?)

there are probably other teams that still use them, but im drawing a blank.

The early 90s template is perfect. No need to be different just to be different... I thought a lot of people didn't like the mid-90s jerseys for that reason.

And fake-retro circle logos are no good, IMO.

EDIT: I just realized that stuff is from March.

I work at the design firm that did the Pens rebrand back in '93. I have sketches that confirm that they considered Vegas Gold back then.

Right now I'm hoping that if the Pens go ahead with another jersey, they keep it simple. Something like the Quebec Remparts or Colorado College

I like the whites and blacks. The yellows could be a fun 3rd. Those vegas gold ones are gross

As much as I like the Vegas Gold on our current jerseys, I like the yellow trim better for that design. I hate the jersey laces though.

I like the top two rows, the bottom row looks too much like Boston though.

All of these are great and way better than the jerseys we have now, which I consider to be the worst in the league by a wide margin.

I very much disagree with this. not that the ones in the picture are bad (ok the gold ones are bad) but I like our current jerseys.

Our current jerseys are based off of the original Edge template that RBK/Reebok came up with. A few other teams originally chose that motif as well (Ottawa, TB) but have since designed their own, more traditional and personal designs. Our jerseys are the worst in the league because literally zero thought went into them. Not the logo, mind you, but the jersey itself.

I think the Pens always have decent jerseys because of the logo (althogh I hate the 90s logo). Those ones that poster put above are awesome, especially the bright yellow ones. They would be a nice third, or maybe even a home (like the old Kings).

The worst jerseys are LA Kings. Not only is the logo completely lame, but the overall design is terrible.

I like the way they look though. I really don't care if its creative or original. Not saying you have to like them, but I do. Certainly not the best in the league, but somewhere in the middle. I'm just glad they aren't red or blue. The thirds are definitely towards the bottom.

The logo saves the Pens jersey but the jersey itself is pretty nasty.

A little off topic, but I always get my jerseys from House O' Hockey too, because they will take premier blanks, and sew the authentic nameplates and numbers from the Edge jerseys to them, so you basically get an authentic looking jersey for about half the price of an Edge jersey.

The only real difference is the placement of the Reebok logo, and the fabric thickness... and I guess the fit as well.
