I'm expecting the Penguins' new third jersey to look a lot like the gold one here in David Kerr's throwback concept. After that, I think it's only a matter of time before these two jerseys become their primary look. Who's with me?
The AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins wrapped up a fan jersey contest yesterday by announcing the two winning designs. Unfortunately, that meant a lot of great ideas fell by the wayside, including this one by Matt McElroy. Anyone else feel like he was robbed?
Meanwhile, Geil Schock tells me he just missed the submission deadline but wanted to share his design anyway.
Here's a look at the two winning designs. What do you think?
We know the Philadelphia Flyers have a new third jersey in the works, but we don't know much else. Should they try something in black again? Rob Giannone thinks so.
David Parkinson's MLB Collection went over so well, I just had to show off his Major League Soccer hockey sweaters. Check out the Western Conference today and come back next Sunday for the Eastern Conference.

David based his jerseys on local hockey teams, as follows:
- Seattle Sounders FC based on Seattle Thunderbirds (WHL)
- Portland Timbers based on Portland Winterhawks (WHL)
- Colorado Rapids based on Colorado Avalanche
- Vancouver Whitecaps FC based on Vancouver Canucks
- Chivas USA based on Los Angeles Kings
- LA Galaxy based on Los Angeles Kings
- San Jose Earthquakes based on San Jose Sharks
- FC Dallas based on Dallas Stars
- Real Salt Lake based on Utah Grizzlies (ECHL)
What do you think of these jerseys?
This week's Outdoor Saturday post takes a cue from the Minor League Week we just wrapped up. Dylan Wonka imagines the Buffalo Sabres wearing an old AHL jersey — from the Buffalo Bisons — perhaps for a future Winter Classic.
The Sabres have already worn a third jersey inspired by the script from the Bisons' bottle cap logo. Why not go all out? The Bisons were displaced in 1970 when the Sabres joined the NHL — much like what happened with the Manitoba Moose when the Jets came to Winnipeg.
