Because it has kept us from having to endure stuff like the new Sabres' third jersey.

Sad thing is, their fans have been begging them to just wear the classic Sabres jerseys for years, and management just refuses, instead going with the goat head, the buffaslug, and their current jerseys, which are kind of a dark blue version of the old classic ones.

In terms of utility, these jerseys are terrible. Depending on which way your teammate is facing, you'll be looking for either a dark (blue) or a light (yellow) target. If they stuck with either the front or back color scheme, they'd be fine. But having both ... yeesh.

It looks like a half-assed Nashville copy AND their own practice jersey.

Why the hell did they have to close caption the picture of the buffalo with "BUFFALO"?  Why not put "SABRES" under the sabres while they were at it?

 

What's sad is, I've seen worse overall.  This ain't the bottom of the barrel.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

When the Devils current jerseys came out they lookes very "90's" and extreme I gues for lack of a better word. 20+ years later they haven't changed and that's why they look classic nowadays.

 

I think the longer you let a design stay the more vintage it becomes and I think that's a mindset that Lou must have taken with him from working with the Yankees.

 

Instead a lot of teams want to make a new jersey every 5 years or so and add a third jersey ever couple of years and when you do that you end up with this disgusting Buffalo jersey.

It's gotta be close.  These are truly awful.  

Really does make you appreciate the Devils' classic, clean look that hasn't changed in decades.

I can't think of one worse at the moment other than the Mooterus jersey I suppose.

That is fvcking terrible. In 5 years, we'll look back on this one like we do the leaping duck jersey Anaheim had in the mid-90's.

Here's hoping Steve Ott, one of the more clever trolls in the NHL, 'leaked' this fake as a joke, and the Sabres reveal they're going with their classic jersey instead.
