I keep getting emails from you guys about the news that the Sabres and Penguins will be donning retro uniforms for the Winter Classic on New Year's Day. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate you guys sending in information, but I did address it last weekend.
Regardless, I thought I'd write up another post considering the league has now made that official — which wasn't the case on Sunday. Here are some images that the clubs posted on their web site this week.
The deal is that Reebok is apparently making them in the same "cutting edge" materials used for the EDGE jerseys.
As you might've noticed, the teams will be wearing their old 1970s logos and uniforms. Most notably, the Pens will be donning blue for the first time since 1980. Should be a fun game to watch, no doubt, if for no other reason than the throwback uniforms.
So anyhow, there it is. It's official. The Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins will wear retro sweaters for the Winter Classic.
By the way, in case you were wondering, the week of this game, be sure to stop by NHLToL as you'll be able to vote on the two logos being used on these jerseys. So stay tuned for that.
