If you're going to create a third jersey, you might as well make it a memorable departure from the normal fare. Of the 19 new ones in the NHL this season, the Penguins' threads were actually unveiled last January as a one-timer for the Winter Classic. The response to the powder blue was so overwhelmingly positive that they decided to keep it around. The color, a nod to the Pens of the `70s, and the vintage look make this a perfect marriage of tradition of fun -- and our pick as the best of the new 19. Now, the rest in order of preference.
