Yes, they're very ugly!  But they are part of the team's history.  For a one game alternate, especially outdoors, why not break em out again.  Turn some heads.  And maybe keep the players' legs warm too?

Wasn't there a safety issue with those?  They'd have to do something to increase friction.

As McKinna points out, a larger issue with Cooperalls was that they were very slippery and made falling more dangerous than usual. They simply provided less friction on the ice than the conventional equipment. Citing player safety, the NHL banned the use of full-length pants after the 1982-83 season.

 

I seem to recall that part of the danger around falling was that the slippery pants meant players who fell were sliding into the boards at greater speeds.
