NHL Jersey Discussion - 08-09 3rds

Recommended Posts

Looks to me like the Sabres' new 3rd, with an old logo Velcro'd on - and other elements (i.e. shoulder patches) not yet added?

OP EDIT: This may or may not be the real deal. This is where I found this image.

if that's it, they took a classic uniform and made it hideous.

Template side piping? What the hell? And where's the shoulder patches? If this is legit (and after all of last year's cellphone cam/Photoshop work, I'm not sold yet,) someone tell the dopes in Buffalo there's an important difference between updating a classic look and taking a piss all over it.

I feel the same way, Sodboy. My first reaction was:

"I thought the logo was supposed to have the new blue & gold."

My second reaction:

"WTF are Calgary's underarm piping elements doing on this jersey?"

You know, the more I look at the crest, the fishier that pic looks, so I'm still holding out on this one. Someone did a concept on here which made the silver accents on the striping very thin, and had a bit of navy space between the silver and yellow. That looked glorious, and that's what I'm still hoping for.

I'm not sold that its the real thing. It looks to be made out of much heavier material than the normal RBK edge jerseys.

and...

The crest appears to have much different lighting on it.

I am calling it a fake

How do they keep on failing?

I don't understand!

Of all the teams they have the potential to have one of the best sets, and then they throw this at us.

That Sabres jersey is horrible..a classic jersey turned into a piece of shat.

i think it's a nice way to meld the new colors with the old look. The piping? Meh. Don't like it, but in this case i can overlook it.

I believe this is the real deal here, fellas.

This will be the Sabres main set in 2-3 years.

I kind of agree with you. I think this jersey might actually look much better on the players. I hated so many of the edge jersey when they came out and now I like most of them with a few exceptions (Atlanta for one). I also think the edge jerseys looks better on the player than the huge baggy ones did. I even don't hate Buffalo's look as much as I did originally. I wish they'd go to the winter classic jerseys though. I love those white throwbacks so much more than the blue throwback.

There's no way that Sabres jersey is the real deal.

The whole point of redoing the alternate from 2 years ago was to match the blues and golds.

The logo looks shopped on to me.

I could do without the piping, but that jersey looks great. I'm glad that they didn't put the shoulder logos like the vintage jersey has. Three of the same logo on a jersey is terrible.

I hope so.

This jersey (if real), looks sick.

Who knew even a tiny bit of piping can completely ruin a classic jersey... Oh wait, I did.

How exactly does this fail? I really don't understand how everyone can be so upset about these jerseys. They are almost perfect, besides this bit of piping. Yes, piping sucks. But does it ruin the jersey? No. This is a very nice, clean design as the striping and logo goes. The piping is just RBK's way to make a jersey look more modern. Stop whining, get used to it. Jeez. One tiny strip of piping and everyone goes absolutely bezerk. This does not ruin the design, by any stretch of the imagination. It just slightly detracts from it. Seriously, everyone was so excited about the Sabres' thirds the entire offseason. I mean, hardcore Sabres fans LOVE these things. So, a small bit of silver is added to it, and it still looks fine. Then, we see some piping, and it suddenly is rejected? Ridiculous.

I'm holding out on that being fake. The crest looks awfully Photoshop-y.

I'll be hugely disappointed if that's what we end up with. Adding useless piping to a classic uniform pretty much ruins it. If it was just a re-colored classic road uniform with an updated logo (e.g. silver accents), I would've probably bought an authentic Ryan Miller. If what we get is that thing above, then Reebok and the Sabres can go another year without any of my money.

I think it's fairly obvious the Sabres are leaking this. There's been way too many leaks from them for it to be by chance.

As for the jersey it looks like crap. The "halter top" piping on the side is idiotic and completely unnecessary. Silver and yellow look do not go well together. Like I said earlier: they should have modernized the logo and stuck with the original template. This is nothing but a cash grab.
