    So, it looks like the sabres got rid of the outlines to the logo, and the alternate will be the 50th anniversary logo with the detailed bison

    New uniforms leaked. They look great. The pants even have a yellow stripe up them. Absolutely awesome

    Terry: "We really need to do something about how bad this team is."
    Kim: "Why don't we tweak the logo and the uniforms? We'll still suck but we'll look damn good doing it!"
    Terry: "Well, it'll sell merch so yeah, sounds good."

    The fans have been begging for this for years. It shows ineptitude for them to wait this long

    I want to believe this is just them finally giving the fans what they want. The cynic in me sees it this way: It's a sign of rock bottom. All the sucking got us Reinhardt, Eichel, and Dahlin, and they managed to sign Skinner. Skinner and Eichel are legit stars, Dahlin is an up-and-coming star and Reinhardt is above average. That's a great core. Yet, so many mistakes have been made that there's basically nothing around them. The team is at the point where they should be improving, but they're still at the bottom of the standings.

    Updating the logo and uniforms is something the fans have wanted for years. It's a way to get positive publicity for the team but it only works once. It's something they've been holding on to, something they can use when there's nothing else good to say about the team. Now is that time. They need positive publicity so badly that they're using the ace in the hole.

    I dont know. They wanted to go to royal last year, but league rules prevented it. So this has been the worst kept secret for over a year now

    The home whites ... wouldn’t that have to be league wide? If only Buffalo wore home whites they would never wear the new Royals... ever.

    Dunno! I'd imagine the deal would also require the sabres to wear blue on the road, so those teams would wear home whites

    Sabres don’t hold that type of influence over other teams, must be league wide or nope

    They'll get to see Jack Eichel wear jerseys worn by the "French Connection", Pat LaFontaine, and Alexander Mogilny.

    And btw I'm not spending another dime on Sabres merch until they start winning.

    Don't get me wrong. I still wear the gear I have. I still buy the streaming package and watch as many games as I can. I still keep up with the news and support the team. They're just not getting any more of my money until they give me a product worth watching.

    Not tanking on purpose during your rebuild and doing things the right way has its rewards.

    Besides his name is LaferNYR, It was meant to be.

    They asked the league. If the league is cool with it, they'll ask other teams if they'll do it, and a great chance they would. Its not a big deal. Its something they're working on. The sabres attempted a jersey switch for the..... 2010 playoffs? That was when the main set was the slug, but the sabres adopted the blue third (the jersey prior to last seasons jersey. With the grey piping.) The sabres wanted to make that white jersey their away jersey for the playoffs. The league did step in and say no
