"The Golden Season" — Sabres' 50th

Recommended Posts

Just now, Thorny said:

The discussion up thread that the Sabres wouldn't have been allowed to cycle through all the previous unis in game...if they break that rule and do it, they should have broken the "no new jerseys for 3 years" rule and just given everyone the Royal Blue they wanted. 

Well, the Habs set the precedent for cycling through sweaters roughly a decade ago, so it'd be tough to deny them (though purely within the NHL's modus operandi).

But they don't want to alienate their uniform suppliers by allowing the Sabres to set the precedent that the 3 year rule is officially avoidable.  (Though with vintages, stadium series, and celebratory unis, it already effectively is.)

It's dumb because the Canucks did have *minor* tweaks to their Uniforms when Adidas took over. So it's bogus anyways.

Seems like we are looking at chest patches for each Jersey. 

More likely shoulder patches but I think the primary 50th anniversary logo will be the patch

I would love nothing more than to have the first Sabres jersey I buy to be a black Reinhart goathead jersey. I will be incredibly disappointed if I cannot.

The Golden Season?

I feel like I've been on Oak Island for 10 years, I found a tablet that said if you tear it down, you'll find that "Golden Season" chemistry.

Unfortunately, after drilling massive holes in the island (sell everything not nailed down), I still haven't found that gold, and the curse says that elusive Stanley Cup won't be found until 7 major players are traded away. We are only on player 5, or something.

(Insert ,me as a skeleton, waiting for the treasure to be discovered meme here)

I hope not for the shoulders. I’d rather they keep what they already had for each of the jerseys. Just a personal preference on that one.

That has to be one of the laziest sites I’ve ever seen. Logos are crooked or off centered. When they put them on hoodies they don’t even bother masking off the laces, they just plunk it overtop. Lazy design work and dont get me started on the kids “designing” things. SMH

If you want to run a top notch organization, then everything needs to be attended too across the board.  No matter how small, attention to detail. This a good example of mediocrity wins, “it’s good enough” mentality.

Agreed.  Very amatuerish.   It's stuff like this why the NHL is considered a second rate league.

And they’re not even children. People are insufferably spiteful.

Also, the brown Sabres hat that one of the daughters designed is actually fantastic.

I’ll be happy if we stop playing like the Golden Seals for the Golden Season.

Please, God, no white skates.  Have a look at the 1974-5 Crapitals and the 1972-3 Meals.  Just ghastly.

It could be worse.  This was KIm Pegula's first prototype.

Humor at other’s expense isn’t humor. It’s ignorance.
