Not looking very good right now. Maybe it'll look better as time goes by...

I remember I got poo-pooed by someone when I posted that; they said it was fake.

I feel vindicated now. ;)

Welcome to the Buffaslug.

They really should have gone back to their classic jerseys.

Looks like they hired the old 'V' Canuck designer. CRAP go back to the originals already

I'm honestly apologizing to you. I never thought they would have such a bad taste. :lol:

Reminds me somehow to these Nashville jerseys :baaa:

Don't really see how it's that bad... just looks like Nashville.

At least the horned slug is a symbol of sorts, rather than a full-on drawing of a buffalo (that's what a sabre is, right? ;)) or some complicated masterpiece like the Florida Panthers have.

Not a fan, looks too similar in colour scheme to Pittsburgh. Might be just the photo though. I really liked their last set of unis, its all about the marketing though, gotta change em up all the time I guess. Wonder if we're getting new ones soon.

Looks awful to me. Did they forget they are named the Sabres?

Just awful IMO.

Did the Canucks forget they're named the Canucks? ;)

(Actually, thank the good lord they did... I'd be annoyed at a Maple Leaf/Mountie/Whatever Stereotype that Has Little to do with Vancouver in the logo).

It's safe to say yes ever since the orca uniforms came out...

true.

For Buffalo though I just think it's so easy to incorporate a sabre into a good emblem that it really make little sense not to.
