The Pittsburgh Penguins were one of the hardest-hit teams by the Reebok jersey re-design in 2007. Just a few seasons after the team added the somewhat dull Vegas Gold to replace their bright yellow-gold of decades before, it had to re-design its jersey template to fit the Reebok EDGE system.
It didn't work out.
I give the Penguins some credit for their uniforms, as they are unique in terms of color; however, many fans think they are some of the most boring in the NHL. Even their own fans seem to dislike them; it seems like there's more blue (light and dark) third jerseys in the Consol Energy Center game in and game out than black and gold.
To fix these problems, I have designed several Penguins concepts that I think would be better received than the current duds.
Credit goes to nhluniforms.com for the templates, and also, please note that all I used for these was Paint, so they're not the highest quality.
Also, I apologize that the pictures are somewhat small. They're a lot bigger on my Paint program, but I don't know how to make them bigger on here.
