Weekend Poll: Best Buffalo Sabres Sweater EVER


Buffalo Sabres fans, unless you just crawled out of the cave you have been hibernating in since the Sabres’ season ended back in April,

Sabres Logo

you surely have seen and formed your own opinions regarding the new third jersey that Steve Ott and the Sabres organization unveiled Wednesday.

If popular opinion means anything at all, then the new alternate jersey is an epic fail . . . at least according to the poll that I ran yesterday, in which 82% of voters informed me that they had no plans on purchasing the patchwork quilt – I mean sweater – that Steve Ott displayed to the world through Twitter.

Probably not what the team had in mind.

It’s a shame, because the Sabres have worn some pretty memorable sweaters since their inception in 1970.  I know some people  hated the Buffaslug, but I have owned a few such sweaters and never had anyone really give me a hard time about the logo.  The current home jerseys the team wears are incredibly sharp-looking.  Of course, so were the original sweaters the Sabres donned when they first began paying, but that shade of blue was lighter and I have to say that I like the deeper blue used on the current ones better.  Then there is the time period I refer to as “The devil made us do it” era, in which the team abandoned the blue and gold for red, black and silver.

Fans: I never liked those jerseys, even if every time I see one I am immediately reminded of Dominik Hasek.  Great player, great memories,

but not a great sweater, in my ever-so-humble opinion.

But enough about me – this site should be all about you, so it’s time to vote!  Weigh in: what is your all-time favorite Buffalo Sabres sweater design?

Which was the best Buffalo Sabres home and away sweater design EVER?
