Uniforms Changing Again

With the switch to Adidas, its expected that the Sabres uniforms will be redesigned again. Main logo stays the same.

Hopeful that they switch back to Royal blue, lose the stupid gray and never touch them again...

Rumors have it the new jersey will replace the buffalo and swords with Jack Eichel's face.

Now, the Florida Panthers reportedly “jumped the gun” by releasing their new uniforms last season, as did the Toronto Maple Leafs. They didn’t want to wait another year for the Adidas takeover – in the Leafs’ case, for the centennial celebration.

But does that mean the Panthers are hitting the reset button? Creamer offers a caveat about the designs:

Let’s make this clear right away, these changes could be very minor, even as minor as just an already existing alternate uniform being “promoted” to a full-time home uniform (as we know is the case Edmonton). We’re expecting almost all of these to be no more than just a few tweaks to their design. Unlike the switch to Reebok for the 2007-08 season, none of these uniform changes will be accompanied by a new primary team logo.

Well we can pretty much guarantee that the silver piping and pit stains will be gone. The numbers on front should be removed as well

This would be great.

Royal blue would be greater.

If the main logo isn't changing, the color of blue isn't either since the dark blue is in the logo.

I don't think they would be too picky if a team wanted a color hue change on the team logo. Might as well go all the way if you're going to make any changes

I think they are just making clear that we aren't getting a totally new logo ala AGH or the Slug. I think a color scheme change with no change to the design of the actual logo may be possible.

A color change is definitely possible, it was just announced that the Oilers will be switching their shade of blue from royal to navy

Huh. Might be a nothing change to accommodate Adidas' cut. But obviously would be nice to revert as close to classic colors as possible.

I could really care less. I don't feel much attachment to the current/old logo really. This franchise hasn't won ****. If Ottawa wins tonight that means yet another franchise (one that is over 20 years younger) will win their first cup before Buffalo.

I'd favor Nashville over Ottawa if they meet in the finals. They haven't won anything yet.

Don't think he was specific in Ottawa winning the Cup, just that both teams are more recent entries than the Sabres and one of them would win.

I believe I read that the piping is in the plans to be taken out. I would love for them to change the shade of blue to something more vibrant.

That was speculation/wishing by the original source.

It's beyond me why they've ever changed from the pre-96 Blue & Gold.

I understand making 7th alternate home jerseys is $$$$, but be appealing with your main attire.

Would love to see them remove the silver piping, pit stains, and make the color a lighter blue. I'll settle for the first two though.

Can someone photoshop a logo where Eichel's curly headed face is roated upside down and overlayed instead as the fuzzy scruff on the jaw of a bison?

Who cares? I'd prefer Nashville / Ottawa to win their first than see Pittsburgh win it again and again ..
