The Red Wings broadcast showed the jerseys tonight during their game and were ripping on them a bit for tomorrows game. It's well deserved though.

I'm sure those words are only for the authentic/on ice ones.

yep, as bad as these are these don't touch the Bills foray into the royal blue shoulder stripe or the Buffaslug.

At least I can say these have a cool logo.

hell I might actually want to add the red 3rd jersey with the cross swords over puck logo to that list.

Buffalo's had some really bad uniforms over the years.

I don't dislike them nearly as much when the players are wearing them.

My thoughts exactly, they don't look as bad on the ice...

Get rid of the grey/white piping, and kill the Buffalo font on the front, and they aren't bad.

They are hideous and the colors don't match. On my TV the pants look like a different blue. It's just weird to me. It looks like something someone threw together on their sewing machine.

Hire someone else. They look worse on the players. They're almost as bad as European uniforms with clutter and clash all over the place.

Sabres just put a third jersey video up on their site:



They also put up an order form: https://www.formstack.com/forms/?1614925-rJjpcg411o

You know what? I like these. They're weird, and I prefer the 1970s era sweaters, but I think I even like these more than our current home and away jerseys. At least these don't have pit stains.

The look as ridiculous as expected. Absolutely no design constraint with these things. The Sabres need to stop it. You don't see a proud franchise like the red wings, habs, flyers, Blackhawks, even the leafs, constantly make big changes to their jersey. What kind of club are you - recent expansion with a new fan base or one that has a proud, storied past. It just makes them look stupid and laughable.

They didn't make a change to their jersey and afaik all of those teams have alternate jerseys except for Montreal. These alternates just happen to be terrible.

When taking in the entire ensemble, IMO the new look doesn't warrant the hysterical negativity that it has largely drawn.

It's as bad as any jersey that will be worn this season. It's a shame because even this specific design could easily have been improved. Really thought I wish they would have just taken the vintage away (blue with gold trim) and inversed the colors.

they've only made slight alterations to their look going all the way back to 1955. You can't really fault a franchise for changing their look when the people that made those decisions are long dead.

also their uniforms before 55 are kind of really terrible so if anything they should be commended.

Watching the replay of last nights game vs. the Wings ....

Different strokes for different folks

I don't like it at all


I also didn't like the goat head jersey, the red butter knives jersey, and the slug jersey.

They're really not. I like them better than the vintage 3rds from a couple years ago with BUFFALO across the front. Different strokes I guess...

Would you wear this in public???

They're not bad on the ice when you see it from far away but I wouldn't be caught dead wearing that thing.

I liked those ones a lot relative to every other non-classic jersey the organization has ever produced. They gave me hope for these new ones, and then they crushed that hope mercilessly.

This jersey reminds me of the slug jerseys. It seems like it was done by some design student rather than a professional. What's with this organization and adding superfluous grey to jerseys? The concept is silly but it could have came together into a respectable jersey. I wish they would have made a good yellow/gold jersey, because that's what their alternate should be.

On the bright side, it looks better on the ice than it did elsewhere.

They make me think of what a cheap knock off might come out like if the manufacturer received very few details about what the jersey should look like. They also remind me of a set of toddler pajamas with the slug that my wife bought from the Sabres store when my kids were little.

Thought they were hideous when I originally saw them, and my opinion of them hasn't changed since seeing them on the ice.
