But people in Pittsburgh LOVE that "Pittsburgh" jersey. I don't get it, I really don't, but you talk to people, they all have a story how they had one as a kid, or they're all proud that they have one, they talk about it like it's some cherished vintage jersey from a century ago, that it could be worth good money. It's a complete detachment from reality and it makes no sense, but listen to Pittsburghers and you'll hear the same.

 

Can anybody back me up on this? Does anybody else her these silly things?

 

I don't know either way, but I'd imagine it to be true - and why not?  It's a good-looking jersey, and Pittsburgh's one of those places where people go nuts for anything that says the city name on it.  

 

I'd love for it to come back as an alt, or even invert it and use it as the primary road (and then make the "normal" road the alt.) 

 

I would lose robo-pigeon from the shoulders though.  Leave them blank.

Everybody remembers this monstrosity, right?

From the Melnyk presser this morning, the logo appears to have been tweaked...

It's already ten times better that way.

The Penguins can go in so many routes.

 

All I want is to see Robo-Pen again. 

I would have the Penguins keep their logo, but use the Robo-Pen as shoulder patch. I always enjoyed that logo.

I always liked the white ones better, so I hope those are the ones that come back :D

Those were pretty great as well!  It's funny, I still remember getting a copy of NHL 95 for Christmas (also the year I started play ice hockey as a kid) and always playing against the Sens since they were an easy team to beat!

I'm not from Pittsburgh but have that road jersey. I think it's a good looking jersey, myself.

 

To each his own.

I still wish these would come back...maybe I'm just nostalgic?

I don't think it's anything to do with nostalgia, that's a beautiful, classy looking sweater.  Shame the same can't be said for their current set, with its boxy panels and cartoon logo.

The robo-pigeon was a great logo, I still prefer it to the skating penguin myself, but that has become effectively tied to the failed Baldwin era and the damage his ownership did to the franchise.  I'm not insinuating anything untoward, I just find it interesting that the pigeon was on the uniform from 1993-2008 and the three cup years were 1991, 1992, and 2009.

I always preferred the version that followed, which added white to the striping. I couldn't believe they junked it for that swooshes-and-Serpentine 3rd jersey. The current unis and logos are trash, but Eugene thinks they're great, so they'll stay, Eugene also thinks sports analytics are best reserved for horseracing and Bryan Murray has done a fantastic job, so I guess Sens fans will be pining for the jerseys of the '90s and the teams of the '20s for quite a bit longer.
