Does this mean the 50th anniversary gold thirds are dead?   Those were gorgeous, would be a shame to kick those to the curb for the butter knives.

Pretty sure those are the new road whites, though w/ both the sword shafts white and a white textured buffalo and the more traditional gold rather than the stripper glitter gold of the 50ths. from the logo is back.

I think the thing I find most interesting about this thread is just how heated people come across in what amounts to an opinion.  

Here's one other opinion...

No, this what they are wearing on the road this year. Pretty sure the 50th is done.

Had the logo right at least.  (The rest, not so much.)   :doh:

They're dead, it was a one and done jersey for the 50th season.  It was confirmed during the Return To Royal week.

I’ve seen it before, but this is just so so nice.  I do hope that the 50th comes back as a 3rd jersey at some point though.

If that had laces at the neck it would be perfect.

Now that the Sabres identify crisis with colors is over (the dark blue was meh and the red and black was dumb (yes I know why they happened), I think it is pretty cool that we have a bunch of other logos now that we can "retro" back into designs going forward. Some of the teams have basically had the exact same logo and their reverse retros suffered because of it. Like them or hate them it is fun that we have some variance in our past as long as the main crest and colors stay for our current and future.

Yeah.  Agree that the Sabres ended up middle of the pack w/ these.

Would be very disappointed if they came up with something as dull as Detroit, TB, & the Aisles pulled.  The B's going yellow wasn't particularly inspired either.

Glad that TO screwed it up.  Winnipeg & Hartford did too, IMHO.  And the Ducks might be the absolute worst.

Surprised, but don't really like Moe-ray-all's nor the Rags efforts either.  And the irony of the Blues going red should be lost.  

The Kings purple works.  The Yotes, not so much.  Maybe those look better in a peyote induced haze.

The Avs, BJ's, & Wild's sweaters really worked.

Liked most of the rest.  Have to relook at a couple others like the Nucks & Joisey to decide if they work or not.

 

The Jets one is hilariously bad. 

I actually think ours is pretty sharp, I dunno. Even with the "Buffalo", which I agree isn't the best. 

Arizona's and The Ducks are so good! Haha
