The Pittsburgh Penguins will be raising their 2016 Stanley Cup championship banner on Thursday against the Capitals. And now they’re rubbing it in.
According to the Penguins Twitter account, all four of their Stanley Cup banners have been redesigned and reprinted. They are larger and, I’m assuming, more ostentatious than ever. Three of the banners have already been raised to the rafters while the fourth will be raised in front of the Caps on opening night.

More from the Penguins:
The Pittsburgh Penguins will raise the 2016 Stanley Cup Championship banner before Thursday’s regular-season opener against the Washington Capitals at PPG Paints Arena.
Game time is 8 p.m. The pre-game festivities are scheduled to start at 7:55, and fans are asked to be in their seats by 7:45.
The game will be broadcast nationally by NBCSN, which will also carry the entire pre-game ceremony.
The 2016 Cup banner will be raised and take its place alongside new, larger versions of banners commemorating the Penguins’ first three championships in 1991, 1992 and 2009 (those three new banners are already in place).
The ceremony will include a video tribute to the Penguins’ championship season and individual player introductions.
We hate you too, Pens.
