Find me another logo anywhere in sports which has the entire franchise name with using no letters or numbers?

Best logo in all of sports.

Obviously no one's ever asked you if the name of the team was the Buffalo Swords or the Buffalo Shears!

The answer you're looking for is Doug Moss.

The plan is to make so many uniform changes that people will start saying "that's like putting new uniforms on the Sabres" instead of lipstick on a pig. Then when the Sabres become a powerhouse after the next ice age people will have heard of them.

They're a couple local radio station hosts that have probably just as many sources as any other radio hosts that aren't employed by the Sabres.

My opinion, wait until we actually get confirmation of this news from more reputable sources before getting all excited.

It only takes one person who knows one person. This is not a high level matter. Not to say their information is good, but it's not exactly hard to believe that someone who works for the Sabres in a non-hockey department either directly or indirectly gave information to a radio host.

They are longtime rock radio DJ's. Not sports show hosts, in case you were wondering.

Ugh. Don't like the royal blue. Kill the pitstains and the piping, but keep the navy blue. Have a royal blue version for the thirds.

I'm with you on that. I liked the classic jerseys when Briere and Drury were on the team.

Having two different shades of blue on the sweater and pants is brutal.

Bring back the royal blues!!

That was only because they were wearing slug pants with the classic jersey.

I honestly HATED the royal blue on the 40th anniversary sweaters. Yuck.

I like the shade of blue on the Andreychuk and the Drury (lower one - on the ice). Appears very vibrant and blue. Not so much a fan of the shade that Drury is wearing in the picture with no helmet. Not speaking about the pants, btw - just the sweater.

The thing that I dislike about the current shade of navy blue is that it is so dark it appears black on TV. I would like it to be blue when I watch a game.

This, so much. It looks too dark at times depending on the camera and too reminiscent of the Bruins' jersey colors.
