The Sabres....did something...right?

 

I cannot compute.

Ah, yes, but will they make a permanent change going forward? 

 

Sadly, they will probably stick with the dull navy.

The 1st thing the Sabres really need to do is erase those million silver outlines that surround everything in and around the crest. Maybe it worked in 2008, but it doesn't work anymore in 2018. It ruins the look.

 

The Sabres have a rich aesthetic history with schemes full of potential. There's a few ways they could re-model their jerseys that would be visually beautiful.

We could nitpick about no yellow outline on the numbers and shoulder yolk, but it's still a very good uniform.  The only thing I would really change is maybe have the shoulder logo on both sides, with the Winter Classic patch on the front where it should be.  Almost surprised there is no front numbers.

So, we’re not going to talk about Penguins at Flyers 2019 Stadium Series? Okay.

Didn't they have a Stadium Series game earlier this year? Why do they get another one so soon?

I was able to grab this photo off the 'Chel shop webpage. Don't know if they've realized their mistake and taken it down yet.

Welp, it’s what everyone was predicting.

Buffalo won the design aspect hands down

I wish the Sabres had just used their original striping, going blue-yellow-blue on both the sleeves and the hem.  What they used has no historical precedence and just seems off.  That being said, the use of royal blue is a revelation that navy and silver can't be vanquished soon enough.

Meh. No better than the usual third jersey they wore the last couple years. Gets the job done though, i guess.

Hard to believe these two teams play in the same league.

One is a beautiful  classic jersey, the other looks like a cartoon jersey, without even a real crest.  A jersey from a lame Marvel Superhero movie

I really like that.  Maybe even more than their regular look.  

 

Going to be out of town for the Winter Classic. Bit depressed, because this is going to be an amazing-looking game. I promised my oldest I’d take him to his first NHL game this season, and this would have been a good one.

Maybe because we're a long way off from seeing any uniforms for that.
