I actually don't mind that piping down the sides of the torso. The third sounds pretty cool too. I don't think I'll buy one though.

It's weird that it's revealed in the game, because the following appear for us:
Home (the alternate from last year, basically)
Away (locked, aka blacked out)
Alternate (locked, same as the away)
2009-10 Home
2009-10 Away
Winter Classic
2006-07 Home
2006-07 Away
2006-07 2nd Home (royal blue)

Chris from Icethetics is debunking that leak as false.

Also, carpandean from Sabres, Not Slugs! put this mock-up together at my request:


Hopefully the third comes out looking like this.

When I look at it again (the video game pic of our aways), I can notice that the Sabres logo is a different hue than the rest of the jersey, and the vertical piping is way too big, it looks nothing like the piping on our dark jerseys. It still gives us an idea of what they'll look like though.

As for that mock-up, it looks decent. It could use some gold in the logo and on the numbers, maybe just an outline or something. And it never said there would be gold on the ends of the sleeves, but it doesn't look bad.

Regarding the current mock-ups, is there seriously a chance that they use a gold plate behind the name? Why wouldn't they just make the letters gold? The gold plate idea makes me think of someone duck-taping new names onto jerseys.

yeah they are doing a gold name plate.

We also have new details on the Sabres' new third jersey. It's royal blue and celebrates the history of Buffalo hockey with a vintage white script across the chest inspired by the old Buffalo Bisons club. Beneath the script and set to the right side is the Sabres' 40th anniversary mark the retro logo with 19 and 70 inside the blue circle.

The striping is somewhat unusual. Both the sleeves and bottom of the sweater feature two sets of yellow double-stripes for a total of four stripes each around the sleeves an waist, perhaps symbolic of each decade the team has existed. The collar is yellow with vintage white laces.

Folks, regarding the picture I posted earlier:

It seems we've all been had, friends - LuGER over at the EA forums has confirmed that this photo is a fake.

Motion seconded. Actual copper piping, pink and purple pipe cleaners, yellow feather boas, even no piping at all, you name it - it's all >>>> slug.

Not only is the crest hue wrong, but the silver accents on the crest and stripes are missing and the vertical piping is too thick.

Definitely fake. I've seen both the white and 3rd, and I really can't wait to get a white one when I get mine in for work in 2 weeks.

The piping is not blue and the bottom striping is wrong as well.

They aren't in NHL 11 yet; the away and alternate are both locked, as I said before.

Gotchya, missed that. That's really odd though, so for road games do they make you wear the slug still?

I'm not sure, they give you quite a few choices, including the slug and the Winter Classic if you want to match the home, but that is it for now.
I'm guessing they'll be unlocked before the real season starts through a patch.

I'm glad that leak is a fake. If the new white jerseys don't have the blue shoulder yoke, that would be tough to get behind.

You won't be disappointed, like I said, I think it's our best jersey and look forward to getting one in a few weeks

I totally agree - the same approach looks terrible on the Flyer jerseys so I have no clue why Quinn wanted it for Sabres. Like you said, it looks so cheesy and stuck on - kind of like the paper "Kick Me" signs kids would tape onto another kid in school

At least, as consolation, the 3rd jersey design will supposedly only be worn for this 40th Anniversary season and then scrapped; I'm not sure if they will create another 3rd jersey in the future or not but, frankly, they've gone through so many different designs and jerseys, I'd be more than satisfied if they just stick with the updated versions of the traditional whites-and-darks for the next 10 years and spend more of their time/money/focus on the roster.

I think we could do alot worse then the description were reading. I'm not the biggest fan of the nameplate on the back, but I don't hate the idea either. I think the 3rd as a whole will come out looking pretty cool. We could do alot worse IMO. Also I think the new homes and aways will give us some of the best jerseys in hockey. I think the old school/new logo is one of the best ever in hockey too. At least IMO.

The only way I can really see myself hating the new third is if they don't wear royal blue pants and helmets to go with the royal blue socks and jersey. If they do what they did in 06-07 and wear navy pants and helmets with royal blue jerseys and socks, it will automatically ruin the new 3rd for me regardless of how cool of a design it is.

I don't think we'll see a change in uniforms for a long time. At least not in the main uniforms. Maybe a few tweaks here and there, but nothing major. I hope they either keep this one if it's good enough, or come up with a new 3rd in the future. I like third jerseys because it switches it up a bit instead of wearing the same thing every game. Although I'd rather have no 3rd jersey then a bad 3rd jersey, but I don't think the new 3rd is going to be bad. Also I don't think any money or time they spend on coming up with new jerseys really affects the money or time they put into the roster. The offseason is a long couple of months.
