The long awaited Sabres jerseys

Recommended Posts

Looking at those Getty images of the game, I noticed that some of the pants have the slug on the right side, and some don't.  I guess one of the manufacturers didn't get the memo about putting the slug on there.

I don't think you can conclusively say that they forgot. The only one that the logo did not show up on is the Biron pic, and that may have been covered up by his pads.

Hmm, when I clicked the link, I saw pictures of, like, Vanek and Campbell wearing pants with no logo, but Briere, for example, did have the logo.

EDIT: Look around HERE.

You're right, the one's you mentioned don't have the slug on the pants. Good eye.

Well, I found someone, a professional in the biz of hockey, who actually had something nice to say about the Sabres' new uni. At least on the practical side:

" The Sabres have small numbers on the front of their new sweaters. It might not make much difference to fans, but it's a godsend to the guys who put together newspaper pages and often have to try to identify players when only the front of the sweater is visible in the photograph."

ANd here is the article in context:

They were making fun of the new jerseys and logo on sportsnet after the leafs game. One of the guys said it reminds him of the Nashville look (which has been said on this thread). All this led to an "Ugliest jersey in NHL history" poll. So it continues......

I saw that. one of their options for the worst jersey of all time was KC Scouts. When I think of ugly jerseys, I never think of the Scouts.

I hate to perpetuate the obvious, but holy :censored: these unis are HORRIBLE!!!!

what kills me is that I think the entire thing could be saved if it weren't for the god damned logo! Kill the slug for god sakes and move on with it.

I'd really like to see this number font on a good jersey. It looks quite nice. Clean and modern, with those slanted tweaks to make it stand out.

And powersurge, I've gotta disagree with you on this one. I think the slug is the least of this uniform's issues. When ownership said the logo would be better appreciated in the context of the uniform, I don't think they meant "You might think the logo is ugly, but wait'll you see the uni we're slapping it on." The sleeves are in need of a complete overhaul, the neck just looks goofy and speaks of unnecessary innovation, and the sides are, good Lord, I don't know what they are. I don't want to look at them long enough to find out. The worst part of this jersey for me, though, is that completely blank bottom. It completely throws off any sense of balance this jersey would have had, and as I mentioned earlier, is an ominous reminder of Reebok's desire to have hockey players tuck in their shirts next season. (BTW, I think I got quoted in Uni Watch Blog for that. If I did, I've just punched my ticket to Uniform Dork Heaven.)

The slug looks tame and reserved in comparison to this sweater. Makes me treasure my yellow Flying V.

Oh, and then there's the issues of modern shells with vintage jerseys... Yeah, donning those old threads for 15 home games wasn't a rush job at all, was it boys?
