A few weeks ago, Sabres president Larry Quinn indicated during a radio interview--gotta love WGR550--that the Sabres were indeed seriously looking into reverting to the good ole BLUE & GOLD of yesteryear.

As far as any mid-season unveiling, I doubt that considerably, but probably sometime during the spring or offseason.

When they went to Red/black/silver 10 years ago they did a public unveiling at open skate---they old Aud was filled to the gills with 16,000+ fans to see the new awful jerseys. Maybe they'd do something like that again, but don't we all know what the old stuff looked like?!

Merry Xmas

A LOT of NHL teams are getting new uniforms next year. All jerseys next year are going to be made from a different tighter fabric that, if the new Team Canada jerseys are any indicator, will have a very, very, different cut than they do now. While I anticipate most teams will likely keep a similar striping pattern then they have now, a lot of teams may be forced to change their striping patterns because of it.

If I remember correctly, they indicated Buffalo was getting a complete new uniform set at around the beginning of the season. They are to include the blue and gold colour scheme they once used, but the logo would be either the modern ones or a modernization of the original one.

I heard about this; my feeling is that they are going to be blue and gold, and the old logo is going be be brought back, but a little differently.

Apparently all the jerseys are being done by Reebok, with this new tight fit. Does somebody have a pic of the Team Cananda jersey, so I can get an idea of what it might be?

Blue and Gold next year is going to be huge...

I hope the Sabres don't revert to the old ones--they were awful. An updated version might be okay though.

The ghost of GIlbert Perreault is waiting to kick the :censored: out of you for that statement.

Buffalo can't even break 16,000 on opening night after an entire year without hockey. What would make them come out just to see a jersey? :P

Oh, and this has nothing to do with the new Reebok jerseys. This idea was floating around the Sabres organization for years and they planned this even before the lockout. Not sure how Reebok was brought into this conversation.

Simple the entire NHL is getting new uniforms for next year and reebok is designing them.

Just tighter fit. No where has it been stated that the templates/colors would be different.

And when he gets down with ya...me and my Sabre fan friends willl take our turn.

On that radio show, Quinn said the jerseys have already been designed. They would like to reveal them now, but they're waiting on Reebok to realease all teams at once. As far as I know, Reebok has not set a official date.

Danny Gare, when they retired his number, made a subtle comment in his speech that the Blue & Gold should come back. The current players were wearing Blue & GOld's over their home black's during the ceremony and the crowd ate them up.

has anyone else seen this site?http://www.celsiusdesign.net/sabres/index.html

It's got some great gold and blue concepts. I hope the sabres use some of them.

That website has been around for years, and some people believe that it might look like some of those concepts.

Furthermore, that designer posts here, or at least once did (I apologize...there's so many members now I lose track).
