Sabres' management has stated in several interviews that the "Buffa-slug" will be disappearing next season. People in Buffalo love the original look. With that in mind, I went ahead and created two new jerseys for them in this concept.
We start with the third jersey which will be sticking around. It may become the new home sweater.Next I made a white version of it.It is similar to the Winter Classic jersey. The differences are, the new Buffalo navy blue. No yellow piping around the shoulder yolke and the thin gray stripes that are on the current third. Finally, I made the collar yellow instead of blue.
A new jersey will also be added to the mix, either as a new home or alternate. I went ahead and made an alternate. Careful, this one is a little off the beaten path.There it is, my Buffalo Sabres 2010/11 concept. We will revisit this in the summer when the actual jerseys are released.
On another very minor note. I noticed this about a month ago when Winter Classic jerseys were in stores for Christmas. The neck inserts were orange instead of black, as seen in the original release and promo photos.
Then the game was played and I realized that it was a legitimate change. The NHL probably thought that their logo didn't stand out enough.
