I read the topic title and was hopeful.

So Sabretooth remains?

....are in a thrift store with a $7 price tag waiting to be used as someone's Halloween costume.

Anwyho... what should the next Sabres mascot be? I love snark, but I think it's a serious question. Sabrepede? No. Seriously, what would be up there with the brilliant Flyers rebrand of Gritty?

No mascot.

Why do we need a mascot?

Rob Ray is already the team mascot.  They should make a stuffed animal character of him and have that guy rappelling from the ceiling, shooting T shirts into the crowd, and stealing food from the fans. 
 

He’d out gritty Gritty.

I think you should get rid of the “or” in the thread title.

Was it a rebrand though? They didn’t actually have a mascot before, right?

oh, and be careful what you wish for because you might end up with Billy Buffalo.

By the decades...

70’s Sabres mascot would have been a dashing, smiling Musketeer, gleaming rapier and all.

80’s mascot would have been a symbol of futility.  Maybe a British WWI soldier from the battle of Golipoli (sp?). 

90’s and 2000’s brings us Sabretooth, young, brash, exciting, and entertaining.

2010’s mascot should have been Eeyore.

2020’s?  Oscar the Grouch maybe?

They actually did a pretty good job coming up with "Sabre Tooth".  

Our nickname is an inanimate object, so it's kind of tough to turn that into an animate caricature that can walk around, like if we were named the Bears or Lions.

The "Sabre" part of our name doesn't really lend itself to any animate mascot I can think of, other than what they already came up with.

So then you are left to work with the Buffalo end...which could be used as a basis for a cute and cuddly bison type of mascot, I guess.

I would suggest ditching the mascot entirely, but introducing "ice girls" who go out and scrape up the ice during commercial breaks.  Some of them around the league are absolutely fantastic.

If you lend your support to this, I can promise you it'll be a mule and the goal song will be that Erie Canal song.

Not sure this works as a mascot, per se, but it could definitely be used as a new crest for our uniforms.

No, it's not a sabre, but you get the idea.

No inanimate objects?  Peter Puck would like to have a word with you.

I am in no way exaggerating when I say the people advocating getting rid of Sabretooth are literally worse than Hitler.

What is needed is a second mascot to help cheering in the sections Sabretooth isn't in. My idea:

This would be a major step down for Tage, dunno if he's gonna go for it.

Maybe a hybrid approach:

Now is not the time for billionaires to make light of job loss. The ownership has often seemed out of touch with the regular populace -- "lifestyle" comments, etc. The optics of this would not help them.

Things that are not the problem with the Sabres operation: 1. Eichel. 2. Sabretooth.

Correction: 1. Eichel. 2. Dahlin. 3. Olafsson. 4. Reinhart. 5. Sabretooth.

Sabretooth just pinned his location as the Nickel City Animal Hospital on Niagara Street. Not good news: Kim accompanied him.

They're putting him down?  That's a savage ending.

A tiny problem. Well, a not so tiny problem. Turns out cremation is by the pound, and Kim's Amex got declined. Anybody up for a GoFundMe?
