I think it's part of the rebuild since many players believe in "Look good, play good. Look bad, play bad."

What would happen if the Sabres produced a 3rd jersey that was never game worn? What rules would they be breaking?

Other than the economic ones...?

(Of course the biggest loss would be us all because we'd lose the opportunity to have an endless viral HF thread discussion about them lasting for days weeks, months and even years. All part of Ted's most clever plan!!)

I think I've figured it out. Blind the opposition, then walk all over them.

If you make the cuffs just blue stripes without the rectangle on top of em that's golden.

Only 12 days until the worst selling jersey in the history of sport is revealed on the ice.

Seriously, I'm thinking maybe a couple hundred of these get sold. what with the way the team is going.

I will predict they'll sell as well as the Gortons fisherman NYI jerseys.

They will look glorious in comparison to the Sabres play.

I am too. They look ugly and ridiculous, but so does the team. Why not wear some outlandish jerseys for an outlandish season.

They wanted to give the unis an air of "golf course" and "country club."

Isn't it supposed to be grey? Either way it looks bad.

I think it's gray, there's plenty of it in the jersey.

My only regret is that I'll be out of town on the 24th. I usually don't DVR games but this might have to be an exception!

Mein Gott! These uni's are flat out ugly. Players contracts should have an anti-clown suit clause in them.

Then again, when in Rome…..

What's the rule on new uniforms being abandoned? IIRC the previous third jerseys were supposed to be just a 40th anniversary thing but they were kept on another year because the NHL rule required them to keep it for two years.

This third is already universally hated, the Sabres will be mocked for wearing them and I can't imagine they sell very well. Why not just trash this jersey altogether and come up with something new. Ted Black mentioned the Mavericks using a fan submit/vote for their 3rd jersey as a good idea they wish they thought of. Even some tweaks to the new 3rd (like what Taro Tsujimoto posted) would be great - the mainly gold jersey isn't necessarily the worst idea. Maybe with LaFontaine back, start wearing the original home whites for some games.

I guess it seems like it, I'm not all that upset about it because it's a third jersey, but it's something that can be done well (and was done well with the previous 3rd) so it's annoying they'll look ridiculous for the nine or so games, but I'll have a good laugh about it.

Only issue I have with them is the gray...

I've seen much worse jerseys.

A few subtle tweaks and I'm with you. That looks so much better than the current 3rd.
