Royal blue Buffaslug jerseys with a Turdburger third would be the biggest kick in the balls for Sabres fans lmfao

If this is true, then the Sabres will have done one thing right for their 50th anniversary.

Unlike the Senators, the Sabres listened about what needed to be done, and now their logo is absolutely perfect!

I feel like the Senators have done exactly that for better or for worse. Everyone has a nostalgia-boner for the original 2D logo, so when they put out surveys asking fans what direction their rebrand should go in...

If the Padres brought back the late 70s uniforms, the reception would not have been good like it was imo, when they brought back a modernized retro look. In the NFL, the Bucs made the right call, by bringing back to right era. But even they updated the 2002 Super Bowl uniforms.

 

Every team that made necessary changes to their nostalgia-inspired new uniforms usually got that majority positive reception. The dated flaws of the old look were repaired and polished. The only update made to the Sens 2D logo was that they used the fill tool, to change one of the multiple outlines in that very 90s logo from red to gold. They needed to do a lot more and that's why the new logo hasn't been well received.

 

Many of the return to their roots rebrands have been successful. But this is one instance where the team missed the mark. The Sabres got it wrong the 1st time, but got it right the 2nd time.

Because the team has been a total dumpster fire on and off the ice for the last 8-10 years.

 

I'll just be over here breathing into a paper bag to calm myself down...

I kind of agree that we're going through a 90s nostalgia phase, but as objective as I can be as a lifelong Sens fan, I really think the 2D Sens logo is just... the better logo. I would have liked to see the design modernized a bit, but I'm still excited about the new/old look.

 

I know we've been seeing a lot of the kachina Coyotes logo, and I've always loved that one too, but I think it works better as a third jersey. The Sharks and Ducks and others have better looks right now, no need to go back in time for them. Not everything from the 90s translates to a better primary logo these days... I just think the Senators one actually does.

Hey everyone,

 

In accordance with forum rules, I've moved the Sabres discussion to a team-specific thread. Please keep your comments in that thread, not this one.

 

Thanks!

In the drafting phase, that Buffalo with sword wordmark would look nice on the pants of the new uniform.

They were slingin’ these at the team shop last year. Not sure if they’ve still got them or not.

OK I understand the last-minute felt thing better now that I've seen those pics.  Of the two options, I would probably have gone with the one with the thicker white stripe.

But best option is without it completely

I am so glad the Golden Knights used the shade of gold they did rather than Vegas gold, which obviously would have been appropriate. Look how much nicer this looks

than this

And by the way that is the pre-Edge Vegas gold. Look how truly awful the Reebok Edge Vegas gold was
