sabres new unis

According to a press conference just minutes ago, the Sabres have gone ahead and released the new uniform now, rather than in September.

They will wear the "original" running Buffalo with crossed swords with the blue and gold as a THIRD SWEATER for 15 home games:

Saturday, October 14 vs. New York Rangers
Tuesday, October 17 vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Saturday, November 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
Friday, November 17 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
Friday, November 24 vs. Montreal Canadiens
Thursday, December 14 vs. Florida Panthers
Tuesday, December 19 vs. Montreal Canadiens
Monday, January 1 vs. New York Islanders
Friday, January 19 vs. Vancouver Canucks
Tuesday, January 30 vs. Boston Bruins
Thursday, February 15 vs. Edmonton Oilers
Thursday, February 22 vs. Ottawa Senators
Saturday, March 10 vs. New Jersey Devils
Friday, March 23 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
Thursday, April 5 vs. Boston Bruins
and will presumably wear the Slugalo sweater for the other games.

Because of a recent fit of rage by the Buffalo natives surrounding the rumored Slugalo sweater, they pushed the announcement ahead to today. The presser isn't available for viewing yet, but here's a quote, from the Sabres official website

Larry Quinn:
We are still committed and enthusiastic about our new uniform and believe that fans will embrace it once they have a chance to actually see it.

They won't officially unveil the "Slugalo" sweater until September. That is, of course, unless they have a trick up their sleeve. We do know that they will be sporting blue and gold instead of red and black.

Rats. Not that I *really* like the Sabres, but I was hoping that the third jersey was going to be their regular one.

Nice to know that I'll still be risking gouging my eyes out whenever I'm watching the Canes duke it out against the Swords, be it on TV or (miraculously) in person. (sighs)
