Are The Boston Bruins Staying Gold With Their Retro Jersey?
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?
