Finally, we have a jersey leak! For me, this off-season has been quite lack luster for some good exciting new sweater news.
Lets take a look at the leaked images.

The third jersey is good. I hope they only keep it as an anniversary jersey though. Maybe next season they can replace that killer script with the anniversary logo minus the 1970? Something like this...

Buffalo Sabres conceptPractically spot on! Maybe Brian lives in Buffalo and is a sporting goods retailer there? Maybe Brian has a crappy cell phone and takes grainy photos and leaks them on the internet? Probably not.
As far as the new road sweater, it's not my favourite. The silver striping on the sleeves and hem work well on the home jersey, but on this white jersey it seems to hide the great shade of navy blue that they use. This may be a jersey that looks good in a concept, but doesn't translate to the real thing.
