New third jersey for 12-13 (UPD: post #88 no new jersey, current third retired)

Quote:
At least one source has suggested the Sabres will drop their 40th anniversary blue third in favor of a new one. A black one.

I find that difficult to believe as well, when you consider the team's new ownership seems intent on solidfying the visual identity of a club that's struggled to find one over its history. This would not serve that purpose.

Essentially, the rumor says the black jersey will bear some slight resemblances to the Sabres' "Black Ice" jersey (right). Black Ice is a line of NHL fashion jerseys launched last year.

Again, I'm not sold on this particular rumor. But it's out there and worth a discussion. Black third jerseys were all the rage in the 1990s, much to the irritation of many Icethetics readers. The Sharks, Flames, Flyers and Capitals all immediately come to mind.

Keep in mind the Islanders' new third jersey is black for apparently no reason. Good or bad, are we about to see a resurgence of that trend? Let's hope not.

I feel like this would be absolutely awful.

The blue lettering on the back looks pretty weird.

I'm not a big fan of our current thirds though, so whatever

Ehhh, as long as they don't look like those 'Black Ice' ones, I'll be ok with it. Frankly, I don't like the ones that say Buffalo. They should use these.

Ugh, those look awful.

The alternates they wear now are fine. I would probably like the 3rd jersey the best if they would just get rid of some of the piping.

The GM and coach are locked in for life, but the jerseys are always on notice. You're doing it wrong, Sabres.

The only way I'll deal with a black jersey is the return of the AGH.

Blackout alternate jerseys are ugly as sin.

If they want a black jersey, why not something that still has some blue and gold elements? Like this:

It still isn't as bad as this jersey though.

While I think this is the best way to go, I had a thought.

What if they did the current jersey in the old AGH colors? Change the blue to black and the gold to red. Then keep the white and silver as they already are. That way the logo and jersey aren't just solid black looking and still have life in it.

this is a joke, right? this is almost identical to the islanders jersey, which has been getting made fun of by.. everyone.

how bout they FIX the stupid ones theyre wearing now before they go adding more new stupid ones.

royal blue without armpit stains, no pointless grey piping, then make a 3rd that pays homage to the goat head era. bedonewithit for a while.

i actually like the current 3rd better than anything theyve worn since '06

Word. Royal Blue is just such a fresh color compared to the drab of the navy and grey.

Cool idea but no grey shoulders please, like someone said islanders jerseys have been made fun of, I don't think it's really good to put blue on black either, to hard to see the blue, Black only looks good with the red and white IMO and I doubt we change colour schemes especially after we just painted the arena

Pardon my bluntness, but **** NO.

Those look awful. Just stick with the current ones. I don't particularly like them but they're fine enough.
