'Buffalo's colour scheme also left much for the eye to desire. With three stripes braiding the elbows of the home jerseys and with a blue shoulders on the white away uniform, the Sabres didn't look all that much different than the Maple Leafs, albeit with gold instead of white as the contrasting colour on the road uniform. In comparison, the new Buffalo uniforms – or would they now be old? – had more going for them. The buffalo head that was front and centre on both the home and road jerseys left no doubt where the Sabres were from.'
