The Buffalo Sabres have unveiled new third jerseys on twitter today, with the help of Steve Ott.  Trying something new, the Sabres have a jersey that has different colors for the front and back (yellow front, blue back), a first for the NHL.
 
And GOD are they awful.  Kudos for trying something new, but these are possibly the worst new jersey revealed this summer, and that's including the Team USA sweaters...

Greg "Puck Daddy" Wyshynski is apparently not a fan either...
 

These look like warm-up jerseys for an indoor lacrosse team. The “Buffalo” font is terrible. The two different types of yellow are terrible. The gray inside the number that doesn’t carry over to the name plate is terrible. The gray on the arms, making it look like the player dipped his sleeves in wet cement ...terrible. And, sorry, is that some kind of lapel they’ve built in around the NHL logo on the neckline? Is Steve Ott going to skate out wearing an ascot? Or perhaps a fancy broach?

If nothing else, this jersey disproves our theory that you can put the Sabres logo on anything and it’s automatically awesome. Don’t tell us we have to rethink Sriracha too.

It also leads us to assume that team president Ted Black moved the guy who did the Ville Leino contract over to the Sabres’ uniform development department, based on these results.


Ouch.

The buffalo in the logo looks like it got drunk and fell over, or like it's falling out of the sky and is going to land on the sabres.

I don't mind the back of the jersey at all, but it seems like whoever was creating it took a s*** and died before making his way to the front thus leaving the rest of the jersey to be finished by his 11 year old niece. No offense to 11 year old girls, most of whom could probably design a better jersey.

Remember, this is from the same brain trust that brought the world the Buffaslug...

Why the color gray?  Seriously, what does gray contribute to these jerseys?

- The suck is strong with this one, yes.

 

- The triangular v-neck collar dealy screams NFL to me, I don't know why.

 

- Saddest thing about this? It'll be the highlight of the Sabres' season.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

This franchise had amazing jerseys, and then completely changed their design to something worse.  First, they went to the "retarded" Sabres logo, for those black, white and red jerseys.  You know, the one with the crooked neck.  Then, they got even worse but introducing the Buffalo slug (albeit with the original team colors).  

 

Recently, they've brought back their original jersey as a 3rd jersey, so maybe it's heading in the right direction.

 

It's just sad that changing something good to something crappy actually prompts people to go out and buy new jerseys, because that's what's driving all these changes in the first place.

Not helped by the fact that Steve Ott is modeling it.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Is that the first jersey to be "poppin' the collar"?

- Wait, are those two different shades of yellow?

 

- And I just noticed the gray. Now I can't shake the impression that the front is held together by duct tape.

 

- So much fail. Soooo much.

Seriously man. Their original jerseys I could argue are one of the best ever, yet they continue to put out ugly crap. Is this how they sustain their market? Selling ugly jerseys to their loyal fan base?

Honestly, it looks more like a Preds jersey than a Sabres jersey. Big thumbs down from this guy. At least we won't see em much being the 3rd jersey and all.
