I’m getting the sense that it will be the originals with some settle variations that echo the variations of the 50th.

Unlike the rest of you bitter old men, I already have my wallet open.

Been saving 26 for this one.

15 for me. 15 in blue, 26 in white, maybe Cozens or whomever steps up in alternate

At least they let you change the nameplate on the back after the guy gets traded

Thick white embroidered stitching around the outline of Buffalo which was/is unique for that game.

The grips of the saber were embroidered in a zip zag pattern making the spiral of the handle more apparent than in past versions where the straight line behind the spiral is also included.  Also, the speed swishes are thinner and with more thickness at the lead than the tail like the "official" logo was set up way back when but rarely translated onto the actual sweaters.

Those were the main differences from a quick perusal of both the original 70's - 90's vintages & 2nd winter classic sweaters.

This is how you do it, chumps.

The detail on the crest is great but they missed an opportunity to make the sweater perfect by not adding the shoulder patches, IMO. Other than that, I love it. Now let's get it right on the ice.

Only thing I would have liked is some sort of gold/white on the shoulders of the blue jersey to break it up. Outside of that now we can get back to wearing our correct colors.

Nit picky, but I could have done without the silver piping in the stripes. Actually it looks like just white piping on the blue home. I don't know if that was necessary. But otherwise they did exactly what they needed to do. They didn't screw it up.

Now just give me a player who's jersey I actually want to buy and I'm gonna be a happy camper.

That's what makes the aways better. But, the original blues had the same shoulder style, so I think it was smart of them to go that way.

So happy they went with the textured buffalo too

Not seeing any silver at all. Think it's just the raised profile you're seeing.
