it's been mentioned in a lot of places (including this thread, I think), but the current shade of blue is so dark it looks black on the vast majority of broadcasts.

while it might be more "modern," it's boring and drab, IMO

It may be the lighting, but there looks to be some gray on the draft hats (especially in the second picture):

I'm assuming this means we'll be keeping the gray stripes on the sleeves?

You guys should have listened to the smart guy early in the thread.

Yeah. You might be right about that

Rather than just the whole logo as a patch, It looks like they're going with a the circle outline , swords and Buffalo as individual patches while using the jersey as the background.

However, i dont see how that would work on the white uniforms.

Invert the white swords, Buffalo to blue ? Looks like they want the logo's background within the circle to blend in with the main color of the home jersey. Maybe they do that for t he white roads?

I also like the current blue. I like the old blue too so I'm not complaining either way. If it looks black you need to play with your color settings or something.

Would love to see this mocked up by someone on here. My expertise is certainly not Photoshop.

Not buying it because it's an ugly hate or not buying that is the hat?

If anything on the white I guess they would do something similar to what the Yankees did on their whites. With the new material or whatever their logo was too heavy for the lighter material/had to keep the traditional style. So maybe the Sabres will use the regular material for inside the circle and between the swords and keep that blue while on the homes they use the supposed model we see here maybe. Personally I think if they eliminated the blue on the away jerseys there it would look horrendous.

There are ways around it:

Good call.

I was actually thinking about that. They could use the blue jersey material inside the crest on both jerseys.

This Bruins logo I believe seals that idea up.

could we be seeing two different crests on the jersey?



first this is not photoshopped, this logo exists, it is on the front of the podium down at the Keybank Center, so you think it is it possible that we could have two different crests? the traditional crest blue background with white charging buffalo with the two crossed Sabre swords on the (home) blue jersey and this logo on the (away) white jersey?

Good find and good thinking. I think HeyOldMan nailed it above with the Bruins logo and that we'll see the same treatment to our road whites.

I guess we already parted with gold with the Goats, but given the history behind that color, no blue jersey should eschew it.

That logo would look pretty sweet on a white jersey.
