This is one of the cases I mentioned before, when I said that I made decisions I could not have seen myself making. For a long time, these looked absolutely terrible to me. But, for some reason, I changed my mind.

All-black is great. The “golden” (is that what it is?) accents go well with it. It’s a simple design without any striping on the jersey.

Is it better than the new alternates? Not sure about that. But I wouldn’t be mad if the Penguins switched to these as their regular home unis.
