Well folks, get ready to come back down to earth. The word is that all teams introducing third jerseys will have their third jersey logos at center ice throughout the preseason as per order of NHL/Reebok in an effort to sell the new jerseys.
Come regular season, it's back to ol' Slugaroo.
I'll post more information, or official confirmation as soon as I get it. Maybe it's not true. Maybe the Sabres will stick with it longer than the preseason. Who knows.
But god dammit is this an infuriating low after yesterday's dizzying high.
Some words of wisdom to the NHL, Reebok, and Mr. Quinn - no one likes a cock tease.
UPDATE: Here is where the information came from. I've scoured WGRZ's website for an official post from Adam Benigini, but no luck. Take it for what it's worth.
WGRZ Sports Adam Benigini,
The Buffalo Sabres had the 3rd logo down painted on the HSBC Arena ice and Mike Gilbert tells us that every team that owns a third jersey is going to have their alternate logo painted at center ice just for preseason, Carolina has the 3rd jersey logo painted at center on their home ice the hurricane warning flag with a triangle. When the regular season comes it will be back to the real logo.
Shame on him for calling the slug "the real logo."
