Actually, the gold trim was there, it was just much thinner than it was on the original.

Hey guys,

This is really OT, but I had no idea where to post this. I just wanted to give you guys a heads up, I'm selling my Ryan Miller jersey (brand new, NOT FAKE) on kijiji for $80. I posted the link below just in case any of you guys were interested.

Cheers!

I would like to see them bring back the goat as a third in 2016-2017 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the new arena and color change.

I think Pegula views anything other than the original logo or something extremely close to it as an abomination. I think he views the goat head and slug in the same way... A bad idea. As long as he's the owner, the original logo or something close to it, will prevail.



And I for one totally agree with that view.

(assuming of course)

Let the phase-out of navy blue begin!!! - The new 3rd will be adopted as the primary in 2014-15, and will be matched with a white version ala Edmonton... Remember Terry is super-oldschool.

Please go back to the original colors. I've bought two 40th anniversary sweaters because they were the original colors. And honestly I think they were the sexiest sweaters in the league. Just got an authentic Ehrhoff at the 40% off sale they had last week.

Anyone needing a refresher on how the original whites (royal blue, arm stripes reverse of waist stripes) looked compared to the present day version should watch the current TBN video where Leino (in current design) stands next to McKee (in early version) the difference is very apparent.

Very interesting. Always thought I liked the newer darker blue versions a bit better, but side by side the old style and colors wins hands down IMO.

Agreed, the brighter colors look much better. There's a reason the Oilers and Islanders ditched the drab navy blue (not to mention the piping) for their current, much better-looking jerseys closer to their original colors (well, besides money, haha).

Yes - both wanted to ease the present day miseries of their fan bases by reminding them of how great each of their franchises once were by going to the jersey designs the '80-'84 Islanders and '84 - '90 Oilers wore. Heck, seeing those on TV sure make me forget for a few minutes how bad their current teams are.

Granted, the Sabre teams from the '79-'95 era with the classic whites never won anything but there sure were all of their Hall of Famers (Perreault, Martin, Hasek, LaFontaine, Hawerchuk) played in that period.

I don't mind the navy shoulders on the new whites, as it actually looks somewhat blue due to the contrast. On the home jerseys though, the navy looks waaaaaaay too dark. Depending on the arena/broadcast/angle, they look black at times

Why not just keep the 40th anniversary ones? Those were beautiful....if Golisano does this he's a greedy guy looking to cash in, with Pegula he's a "visionary"

why don't all the capable artists out there start whipping up some ideas already...

I'd be interested in something around a "B" and "sword" like the red/black shoulder patch... but in the blue n gold, with the logo looking old school... not overdesigned. A "B + SWORD" that worked the same way the Whalers jersey worked, or even St Louis, that would be cool IMO

I think the shoulders for the blues are fine. It wouldn't look sharp on a Sabres jersey, IMO. But wow. The guy that posted the revamped current jerseys to make them look like the legit originals, make the gold on the shoulder a little bigger and its perfect IMO. As for an alternate, a brand new one...what about having a black, or red jersey, with a real mean looking charging buffalo, NOT The AGH althought I adore that jersey. But then in tne background, you see the outline of the city of Buffalo, or in the Charging Buffalo's shadow, see the city?
