There’s been growing speculation about the alternate Boston Bruins jerseys for the upcoming season since word got out that it would be a retro look from the NHL’s 1990’s era. Of course, everybody wondered if that meant the dearly departed “Pooh Bear” jerseys was going to make a regrettable comeback, something we openly discussed at Boston Hockey Now a few weeks ago.
Well, it looks we won’t have the Pooh Bear to kick around after all.
Claiming that it’s a “leak” of the Boston Bruins reverse retro jersey, Pete Blackburn from CBS Sports has a picture of a gold Bruins jersey with a different throwback bear altogether on the shoulders. Here’s a look at the possible alternate jersey for the Black and Gold:

Do we like this look?
It’s absolutely better than a “Pooh Bear” reverse retro jersey, but it’s really going to depend on how the rest of the uniform looks as well. If the Bruins opt for a Goldmember look like the Nashville Predators where it’s almost head-to-toe golden overdose, then it’s going to be an immediate and harsh thumbs down from this humble hockey writer.
But a gold reverse retro jersey with black pants, black socks and a black helmet sounds pretty Black and Gold badass to me. I might even be okay with Bruins players rocking gold socks along with the retro 9-carat sweater, but that’s as much solid gold as we can handle in a Bruins uniform.
What does everybody else thing about a gold Bruins jersey for next season with some pretty cool retro touches?
