2022-2023 NHL Jersey Changes


Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if Adidas could just be offering pre-edge throwbacks in the new template to fans. We've already seen the Stars one, and I haven't heard any rumblings of Dallas actually wearing it in a game.

 

Buffalo seems like they're trying to pretend that black & red was never part of their colours, so I'd be surprised if they actually bring those back on the ice.

Those are Fanatics tags on that Sabres jersey though.

 

And although Fanatics has bumped up its vintage line somewhat, the Sabres jersey is a modern template, unlike the others in the vintage line.

According to Icethetics, the Sabres will have this as a throwback for next season !

I love this look so I won't complain. That said, kinda ironic that the Sabres finally get it right with royal/yellow and they decide to bring this back

As was mentioned in the other thread. This is likely a fan concept due to missing the red stripe on the right side.

Icethetics' sources have already confirmed that it's real, and that the missing stripe is just an error.

If that is indeed their full-time alternate, the Sabres never need to change anything again.  The blue and gold jerseys are (pretty much) perfect and they don't need a lesser version for an alternate (See the Islanders).  I'm glad the uniform they had (arguably) the most success in isn't going to be forgotten completely...  Blue and gold full-time, black & Red on select games.  Perfect.

I may be on the minority, but I hate the fact that Buffalo uses more images of buffaloes than sabres.

Even on the red and black uniforms they have a 2:1 saber to Buffalo ratio, 2 shoulder logos with a saber each

Assuming the random missing red stripe is a mistake, I'm going to call these a huge success. They kept the unique template (did any other major team ever use it?) and the changes to the logo are probably an improvement. I'm a 90s kid who spent a lot of time trying to draw the goat head... it had a TON of crazy detail. My only complaint with the changes is I think it needs those red nostrils to break up all that gray/silver at the bottom.

As a kid I always just assumed that a sabre was a type of buffalo/bison because that's all their logo was (I wasn't paying close enough attention to uniforms then, so I didn't notice the shoulder logos).

A sabre (pronounced sawbray) is a type of buffalo/bison... and the best damn printers and all-in-one machines Korea can make.

Funny enough, one of my fantasy hockey teams is named the Dunder Mifflin Sabres.

Am I the only one who thinks the "updated" goat head sucks? It looks soul-less and corporate now, like when the Dolphins and Jaguars switched to their current logo. There was nothing wrong with the original logo

It cleaned up some obvious flaws. Took away 2 unnecessary shades of gray, and changed the eye to make it not bug-eyed anymore. It’s a vast improvement.

On paper maybe. On the jersey it was not an issue at all imo. I liked the "bug eye" better. It made the buffalo look furious and demented lol. New one looks neutered

Is it just me or do the Calgary Flames look better with black than no black?

 

Just you. Black has never made sense for a team called the Flames. Maybe if they change their name to the Calgary Charred Remains, then sure, black is fine
