Sabres inadvertently scoop Senators on new jersey

Quote:
The Ottawa Senators have been working hard on a third jersey, designing one to reflect their heritage. They have a big unveiling set for Oct. 1, and they've been building interest in the event.

Then the Sabres Store put the jersey on its rack.

The Senators sent out a release today confirming that their new jersey was prematurely released in Buffalo. Photos had shown up on the Internet, and the Sens said the jersey was mistakenly sent by Reebok to the retailer prior to its official release.

Finally, I have photos of unreleased jerseys that I'm able to share with you. A reader wrote in today to tell us that the Buffalo Sabres' team store at the First Niagara Center (formerly HSBC Arena) is already selling Premier version of the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs forthcoming jerseys.

Sabres are 1-0 in pre-season jersey jousts. Your move, Toronto/Ottawa.

I like the Leafs ones a lot, not sure how I feel about the Sens one yet but I do respect the ideas.

Because nobody in Buffalo wants a sabres jersey.

Wait so they include the original Senators as part of their heritage?

As I understand it, they honor the original Senators, but don't consider them part of franchise history. I think this is similar to how Buffalo's third pays tribute to the AHL Buffalo Bisons, except obviously the Senators took it farther.

Anyway, I like the general design of the jersey, but it looks a bit weird using the Reebok jersey setup. So glad teams are moving away from piping and pit stains. Can't wait for the Sabres to catch up with that.

I bet all team stores have to have a limited number of jerseys from around the league on sale.

Yeah, I guess it does make sense from a business standpoint. It just seemed sort of strange at first to be selling other teams' merch, and the reactions from fans of other teams to that concept led me to believe it wasn't the norm.

Doesn't every single "NHL team store" (or equivalent) in the league?

I couldn't find anything of the sort in Pepsi center going to see the Avs play.. They had only a couple popular team jerseys (red wings, leafs) .. I guess not all team stores are created equal.

You have to remember that Buffalo is only a short distance from Toronto and the First Niagara Center gets mobbed with Leafs fans when they play. In fact there's a large Canadian contingent that comes down for most of their teams as there's plenty of people living / working in TO that aren't Leaf fans.

To those who dislike this jersey I ask only one question: is it better than the SNES jersey?

I personally like the like to Ottawa hockey heritage, but I like it more because it's an upgrade on their previous alternate.

I like the Sens one, but I think the Leafs one is pointless. Why even have an alternate if its basically the same thing as your home jersey. Only real difference is the font and the leaf is a little squiggly.
