Long live to the Pigeon :-)
I'd like to see it back as a 3rd or a patch...

I like the black and yellow jersey with the Pittsburgh script.

I don't know why but every time I see the logo/jersey, the think that sticks out right away to me is Kasparaitis destroying Lindros on Fox years ago!

Same, although it's kinda strong on the Pirates vibe, to me.



I actually like this one on the left, a lot, too. Would make a cool third.

I love the white pigeon jersey but seeing it on black, just doesn't seem right.

With accurate colors the one on the right would be a cool third / special events jersey for next year. I like the idea of a mean looking Penguin head. I think this stuff is being reported for a reason... building the buzz and observing fan feedback at HFB, Pens.com, etc. Or maybe not. But maybe. Left one OK. Middle one is dog ****.

White shoulders on jerseys with a large area of darker color almost always look like crap because it throws the visual weighting off .

**** me. Why is there buzz about this atrocity?

Some disasters are best forgotten.

The script on the left one put me in the mind of those "Boys Of Winter" TV spots from the early 80's.

I had a barrasso jersey with the diagonal Pittsburgh script. I miss it, it got stolen out of my car in freaking PHILLY. Ugh. I might have to buy one again.

My brain must have just skipped over that part.

That is one monster jersey foul.

I'll always love the pigeon. Maybe brings back bad memories but in terms of design it is exceptional.

With a white border on there would be fine.

The first two would have to be scrapped and keep the third one. I definitely would have bought that one.

I sold my diagonal black jersey over the summer. Never once did I belittle myself to buy those ugly pigeons ones, but I did come close on the thirds.

Plus that third one could have done well with kids and all.


Yep, you would have bought me and you know it.
