Front laces...

As I expected the Sabres teased us on their splash page to the website with an image of the new third jersey sporting some lace tie ups.

Expect the front numbers too when we see the rest...the only question remains is whether the sleeves will somehow be trimmed in silver accents.

Wow...I'm actually getting excited to buy a Sabres jersey for the first time in 12 years.

Note the team's 40 year anniversary is approaching...could we possibly see this as the team's primary jersey by then? Hopefully...if Larry Quinn has a pulse and will realize it's good for the team's long term margins, he'll deliver some class back into the team's identity that he took away and make this jersey a full time look and get rid of the cartoony shit streak.

Well, it's really coming true, isn't it? I'm definitely buying one for myself and for the boy.

And I would love love LOVE to see what DRutka could do with these new design elements to the original white jersey.
