Yeah, but jerseys = money. Larry Quinn loves money more than winning.

Well, if letting him **** with the jerseys keeps him away from the roster - I'll take it.

The fans have wanted the team to go back to the original logo since the day the team stopped using it. I honestly don't see them making a drastic change in logo or uniform anytime soon.

And this isn't directed at you but the whining and complaining of Sabres fans on here will really never end will it? People complain for years that the jerseys suck and that they need to go back to the original logo. Then when they finally give the fans what they want by bringing back the original logo, people complain that all the front office cares about is money. Or people complain about minor insignificant details such as piping or that the thirds that are most likely only going to be worn for one year, and only a small portion of games that year, might have nameplates on the back.

Instead of being glad that the slug, which alot of people considered one of the worst logos/jerseys in the sport, is gone, and that we will finally have back the original logo which everyone has wanted back for so long, some people just have to find something to complain about. Can't we all just be happy that we will have kickass jerseys for the first time in about 15 years?

Yes. We can be.

But now that getting the old jerseys back has finally happened, now it's time to turn our attention to the on-ice product!

You say you don't like people complaining. This sounds like complaining to me!

Well, how do you - or anyone - really know when none of us have seen the official version yet?

As you may recall, that color mismatch was not intentional but more a result of timing and mis-coordination by the Sabres; the team announced the 3rd jersey option using the original royal blue design late in the summer of '06, after Reebok had already started production on the new slug designs that used the darker blue background. In the unveiling of the 3rd jersey, Quinn even conceded as much by admitting the blues wouldn't match that season between 3rd jersey and pants but promised the colors would be fixed the following year. I remember he even said that they didn't have enough of the original jerseys in stock by late July, leading him to wear his own personal jersey to the press conference. They were scrambling to get enough of the original road blues by the start of the season.

I dont mind the script, its not as bad as what we were hearing (in my mind anyway), but all the gold stripes and the 1970 patch seems off scale and a last second add on. I'll have to give it some time before I give the offical verdict. Same for the road sweaters, cant tell if there are any changes due to the picture quality. (i.e. anything is better than the slug)

I wonder why the word "Buffalo" was chosen for the script text on the 3rd instead of the word "Sabres"...

It's the old Bisons logo.

The one thing I don't like is the line above the text, but otherwise I can live with it.

Yeah, I though the same thing about the patch but the picture quality isn't great and how the numbers and nameplate look will probably make a big difference in the overall result. There are a lot of terrible 3rd jerseys and I don't think this is one of them, though the bar is obviously very low.

We also don't know about whether there will be numbers on the front as well--I figure that those jerseys were blank ones.

It will definitely be interesting to see the nameplate and the checkered numbering.

Exactly (and there's definitely room for the numbers on the right front shoulder).

So much so that it should be the home jersey. It's high time for Bettman's crazy NFL-mimicry of dark jerseys at home end and the league go back to light jerseys for home teams.

What's funny is that the current set (darks at home) is actually more traditional, since that's what the league did before they switched to the crazy white at home business. They go back to their roots, and people still cry foul

3rds could be worse. Don't really like the script, but royal blue >>>> navy blue.

The whites look a ton better than the slugs, and I dig the laces. Could just be the quality of the picture, but I don't see a red eye on the buffalo - disappointing.
