Everything Old is New Again by @Nick422

With the announcement of the Stadium Series Penguins jersey being one and done (while other teams like the Islanders opt to keep theirs as their third jersey) the Penguins are on the hunt for a new third sweater.  According to rumors has the concept already been used?

According to an article from our friends at the Trib the Penguins may have something in mind:

The Penguins will wear the Stadium Series jerseys only once. There are tentative planes for a new alternate jersey that could debut next season.
A design is not finalized, but under consideration is a jersey similar to the ones the Penguins wore during their 1991 and 1992 Stanley Cup runs.
That could mean a return to these beauties:

It would be a welcome return to many fans who have found this jersey to be one of the best in team history (NOTE: author bias).

Given the need for a new third with a nod to the past we could return to the recent past with these:

Or perhaps the triangle penguin with these:

Or maybe even one to honor Snoop Doggy Dogg Dogg Lion:

What about going retro with one of these beauties to burn our retinas?

And while we're talking retro, with all of the injuries maybe it's not just old jerseys that should return to the Pens...

What do you guys think?  What jersey should the Pens use as their new third?

  1. The retina burners!

  2. I like the triangle or the retro "Jagr" one.

  3. Grew up watching them in the 90's so I have a softspot for both the 96/97 triangle (just don't exactly want it back permanently) and the "PITTSBURGH" snoop version from Gin and Juice (which was a first for sports jerseys in videos). Defnitely not feeling the retina 85/86 even if it was Mario's first sweater.

  4. Nothing with the pigeon (triangle). I hate that logo.
