Is it just me, or does anyone else absolutely hate dark navy blue, like on the Sabres current, or Oilers previous etc.



The blue in the home is terrible, but in the third it is amazing

Me as well.

I love the color navy, I grew up a Penn State fan so it's only natural, but too often navy, or rather a darker version of it, has been used as a not-black-variation-of-black. The Oilers can't go BFBS, but they can go an extremely dark navy. The Sabres can go retro...only if it almost looks black.

It all has to do with that garbage 'black/dark colors is/are intimidating' thought process...as if any game has ever been won because of a player being scared of an opposing team's uniform.

It still kills me that the Sabres half-assed the retro thing. They had greatness at their fingertips and instead they implemented the dark color for no reason and idiotic piping for no reason (granted there's never a reason for piping...vertical stripes or nothing, damn it).

I will forever loathe Dallas for getting rid of those jerseys. Even the shoulder patch was cool.

I don't know to be honest. Black/red/white is quite common around the league whereas the current Sabres jerseys are actually quite cool and fairly unique (only STL uses similar off the top of my head).

I've always been rather indifferent about Buffalo as a team, but their jerseys are alright.

The North Stars might be my favorite logo/jersey scheme ever. Love that thing

I'm pretty sure every hockey fan would agree with you on that one.

Dallas and Colorado had great jerseys pre-Reebok.

Again, nothing says Sabres like the head of a Buffalo right?

I understand that. However, it did have sabres on the shoulder patches going through the B. Point is, those were awesome uniforms. I thought so anyway. The new ones, not so much. If anything, bring back the early 90's ones if you want to go that way. At the least, why not make everyone happy and use the cool 90's jerseys as the third jersey (I'm talking about basically every team).

Give me the blue and gold any day over the Goathead.



Not even close. You say Buffalo Sabres, I think blue and gold, not black, red and silver.

Lets add some in-game photos of it:





And some white:



Things of beauty.

This, I mean, it isn't awful but yeah, it is bland for me and compared to the old jersey, it just doesn't do it for me. I'd like to hear why people think the head is better than the moon dog, let along the rest of the jersey, which still was much better before IMO:

I love those jerseys, especially the logos. I don't know why, but I just really dig the look of them.

Yeah, it's a matter of opinion but I strongly believe that teams should never, ever, ever change their color schemes for the sake of selling jerseys.

To me, that is just selling out the spirit of the team. Plain and simple.

The gray armpits look stupid. Like they have an out of control sweat problem.

Buffalo's best jerseys have always been, by some margin, the white yellow and blue efforts. Their white/red/black effort and the Buffaslug were bad.

Yes the original blue/yellow ones where awesome, but the new dark blue/yellow ones are ugly.
