Figured I'd pass this info on, since these jerseys are pretty rare.

As some of you may know or are currently bidding, the Sabres have their first set of home and road jerseys up for grabs on nhl.com which ends today. I emailed the Director of Community Relations for the Sabres yesterday regarding the current 3rd's (40th anniversary style) or last years set to see if they would be auctioned off at any time soon, and also to see if the rumor of these being discontinued after this year was accurate. This was his reply:

Quote:

Hi Don,

Our 3rd jersey from this season will be up for auction next. Probably within a couple of weeks.

Not sure if we will wear a 3rd jersey next year.

Just wanted to share as it looks like the rumors could be true that we'll be retiring the 3rd jersey after this season. Kind of bummed about this because I really like them.

but, from that email, it seems that we will NOT be having a new one next year either. So, from what im getting that the only question is IF we have a third, and if we do then it will be the current one

True, just been hearing some rumors kicking around the last while that they were going to scrap the 3rd and go with only the home and roads after this season. This would make sense since they’ve worn them very little this season.

I thought I read it somewhere that when a team brings in a new jersey, they cannot change/drop it for at least 3 years? I'll have to check around for this info....

According to Icethetics the rumor is that the Sabres will have a Black 3rd next year.

I can only pray to allah, jesus, buddha, Zuse and whoever the fuck else that its wrong.

I seen that.

To be honest, if they are considering anything close to that, I'd sooner they just go with home and roads. If they really want to bring in a new alternate, either the Winter Classic one or a remake of the old blue & gold roads would be solid picks.

If it ain't broke...

i think that the Sabres could go way outside the box and bring back their Red Alt from the same era. That would be interesting.

i think thats boring and doesnt make good use of the 3rd jersey option.

I could be happy with anything but gold. Just look at how ugly Nashville's gold jerseys are.

I don't mind the Nashville gold jerseys at all. I think it makes the Predator logo look better, plus it's nice to not see navy used as a primary color for them.

I wouldnt mind them if they didn't look like a practice jersey from behind.

I think it's safe to say that the third jerseys we have right now are the best this team has had thus far. Can we all agree on that?

Without a doubt. I think it would be stupid to retire them so soon. Maybe they think it keeps more interest around the product from a sales standpoint if there's uncertainty involved, like some kinda Disney vault shit.

For sure even though I did like the red thirds when they had them.

i'd love/buy one. to be honest i don't really care for the current thirds, though. the lettering& line underneath is too baseball-y to me.

I agree with that but that sort of makes it looks old school. I usually am not a fan of lettering on a hockey jersey but the sabres are the only one's I really like.

no way man those were so ugly. I remember the first year they came out every sports show was making fun of them during nhl highlights. Those look more like what a JR Sabre should wear. The one we have now is the shit.
