You are looking at a photo of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins player Paul Bissonette showing off his team's new third jersey yesterday.
Basically it looks like all they did was take an old NHL
Penguins jersey from the Dave Schultz era
and slap "PENGUINS" across the front just in case you forget what team your watching. Kind of like what the Stars did with their home Reebok
Edge-Super-Duper-Mega-Ultra-Awesome-Humungo-Women-Will-Want-You Uniform System jerseys.
While we do like the way it looks, the lack of effort in coming up with this is kind of disappointing.
That said, at least Wilkes-Barre/Scranton fans won't get confused and think they're watching the Quebec Nordiques.
What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
