    Late Christmas gift.

    My wife gave me a 90ís era authentic Rob Ray sweater, white goat head complete with the A. It was late because the whole thing was custom and hand stitched. Tonight was the first chance I had to wear it during a game.

    Which I could post pics but itís a pain in the ass on this forum.

    FWIW I think the current/classic crossing swords crest logo is the superior logo. But the 90ís is my era and Ray, while certainly not the best hockey player, is such an iconic part of this franchise right through to this day.

    The current logo is definitely a classic. But it can get stale. The 90s logo and jersey kit was definitely more fun. But I think it gets a lot of love simply because nostalgia. I mean, dont get me wrong, it's awesome. But a lot of that awesomeness is because 90s kids are older now, pining for the past. It's kind of the same thing with the recent resurgence of popularity with the 90s Detroit Pistons teal horse logo.

    Also, I don't want the sabres to change their regular sweaters, or even the third. But I would love to see a fourth jersey which is kind of a classic, but different take on the full time logo.

    Or, even better. I'd be willing to ditch the current logo for the old buffalo bisons logo. Someone made this as a concept a few years ago. And if the sabres made these in blue and gold, I would CREAM

    I’m horribly biased. But I think the current Bills logo is a great mix of classic and modern. It isn’t dated but it isn’t trying too hard to be modern. The Sabres crest logo is a classic that can never be outdated.

    The slug flat out sucked and the only reason anyone bought it is cuz the Sabres had an amazing team.

    The goat head was a total product of the time. But it was MY time. So I love it. I understand why old people and young people don’t like it. If I were 10 years older or 10 years younger, I’d hate it too. But I watched some really good Sabres players rocking the goat head during my HS and college years. I loved Jordan and the Bulls. I was into punk rock and despised anything trendy and derivative (still true). And the goat head was totally derivative of the Bulls logo. I also loved hockey and watched the Sabres play some good hockey in those goat head sweaters.

    I completely rambled in this post. Sorry. Here’s the TL/DR: In the 90’s I hated the trendiness of the colors and goat head but loved the hockey. Now, I hate the hockey but love the throwback to my era even if I didn’t embrace the colors at the time.

    That counts as a gift?

    I'm heading to Buffalo in two weeks. And I want to get a third Benson jersey but unless you buy authentic, it doesn't appear to be available. Maybe in store is different, but last year when we were there, there was virtually no jerseys in the store.

    The store used to be awesome. Used to be able to buy game pucks and all sorts of neat ****. Now it's all fanatics **** that is universal to all the teams, really
