Three new jerseys this season including the winter classics. No more decent replicas so I gotta go authentic. Looks like $1000 will be spent on jerseys before the year is through.

I refused to buy the striping and may finally be able to buy a jersey again

Forgive me if I missed it, but will the new jerseys be alternates or will they be replacing the navy homes?

Replacing the home and road. No one will have an alternate next year.

Actually I believe we get one new jersey for the Winter Classic, probably akin to the one we had in '08

They'll probably wear something special for the winter classic but it will likely be considered an "event jersey" and they'll only be able to wear it for that one game.

Given the previous report that it more likely to be a minor tweak and not new primary logos, that leads me to believe that it will be the same pie plate logo with minor tweaks. Getting rid of the silver/grey seems to be the most obvious change to the current uniform while maintaining the primary logo.

I agree. I do love the early 90's jerseys, but the goathead and butter knives era were my favorite jerseys as well.

Im really hoping the winter classic jersey this season is a red and black goat head!

any idea when the tweaks are going to be shown for the first time? will it be the draft, or will it be later than that?

edit: nevermind, russo says yes, adidas jerseys + updates reportedly will be on display at the draft

Any chance they make the switch back to whites at home in the next few years?

I doubt it. Teams want to be able to wear their 3rds at home, and teams on road trips don't want to have to haul around two different sets of jerseys, socks and helmets. Obviously this won't be a problem next year since there won't be any 3rds, but that was one of the reasons they switched to colors at home in the first place.

This would be enough for me to quit watching the Sabres. If they happened to play my new adopted team, I'd have to turn it off.

I'm not quite sure why someone came up with that concept and thought it was such a good idea that they needed to put it on the internet for other to see.

I wouldn't quit rooting for the Sabres but I would start listening to all the games on the radio.

That concept jersey is cool but not something that should be on an NHL jersey if that makes any sense. I just hope that Adidas doesn't make everyone conform to the crew cut type of neck/collar. Sabres unis look good with the lace and slight V neck

That logo would be more fitting to be a shoulder patch or on a hat. Everything else is just not pleasant.

The previous concept worked because reebok was happy with above the back and NHL hidden in the vneck. Who knows what adidas which is a more powerful brand, will demand

Unfortunately, that demand is going to dictate things like neck style,etc


I just hope they ditch the god damn piping. How about all the grey while they're at it. It's so ugly



That other logo is hilarious and I'm totally for it, but only as a token event jersey or an official hat type of thing

That's something Adidas has already done in something close to our color scheme.

Also, they're doing really well in terms of fashion right now, I'm really surprised people have been eh or even outright down on the rebrand. We might get some really exciting designs as well as the return of the fully sublimated jersey, like the 90s Stars.
