Sabres to revisit blue and gold
The Buffalo News reported yesterday that the club is looking into returning to their more traditional colour scheme, something that I welcome as a fan of the Puppa-era of the team.
[Managing partner Larry] Quinn indicated the Sabres are strongly considering a return to a blue-and-gold scheme, but not for this season.If the Sabres people are looking for designs, might I suggest those designed by John Slabyk (as pictured above). As he mentions, they might be a good way to usher out the Rigas-era and reconnect the team with their more prosperous history.
NHL regulations require teams to notify the league of logo and uniform changes a year in advance so merchandise doesn't become obsolete before it can sold.
The Sabres have created multiple in-house uniform designs and are about to evaluate forthcoming designs from Reebok.
