The Buffalo Sabres announced today they will be unveiling their new third jersey on Saturday, September 20, as part of “Puck Drop 2008” at HSBC Arena. If you like obnoxious 3D SportsCenter-esque graphics injecting colors, info, and presumably lazers into your brain, you'll love PUCKDROP 2008! Don't like that one? BOOM! Here's more!

Judging by these ads for the puckdrop one can only assume they are going to drop the living shit out of that puck. I hope it's like when the jumbotron fell from the rafters except this time it'll be a puck the size of a small brick ranch in West Seneca instead of an eight-sided, $4-million scoreboard. DROP THAT SHIT! (insert "disturbed" riff) and lets get totally pumped for another season of sick Sabres action, bro.

Sick Thirds bro.

As per the great Icethetics blog:
This was posted on the Buffalo Sabres' official web site on Thursday but I figured it was worth mentioning. The Sabres have officially announced their intentions to unveil a vintage style third jersey at a team event on September 20. The following was pulled directly from their site.

When the Sabres hit the ice for their first full practice of the season, fans will get their first look at the team’s new third jersey that will make its debut during the 2008-09 NHL season. The jersey features a modernization of the team’s vintage design elements, while incorporating the latest in sports uniform technology. Fans will be able to pre-order the new jersey at a kiosk in the Sabres Store.

Nothing really new but it's another official statement from the team. We've already had that date in the countdown for a while.

Keeping it current.

So yeah. Is it that people have such blind faith in the Sabres ability to win the cup every year or do they get one jersey for each year? Do you then wear two year old jerseys simply to reminisce? Where is your red and black '05 lockout jersey? How about an '86 jersey to commemorate our sick .400 winning percentage? I'll bet you are at Al Ross right now getting this year's model Fleissnered up as I speak. Cut that shit out. Get a Miller jersey and stop this silly bullshit. Really.

The flesh is chic, but the mind is wailing.

Most excellent. If you have recently perused the front page of, you may have seen Mr. Drew Stafford partying hard with Buffalo's own Every Time I Die at this summer's Warped Tour. I have it on very good authority that the jam was aww-sem. Partying for real and doing Buffalo proud. Lets hope sick, radical conduct like this rubs off in the locker room. You hear me Joken? I want to see you down on Allen autographing the sidewalk with a loose blend of Jagerbombs and Jim's Steakout.

Great news indeed!

As per some info obtained from multiple sources (including my boy Charlie at Sabres not slugs) the Sabres are preparing to debut their reworked third jersey design for the upcoming season. All signs point to a fantastic amalgamation of new and old showcasing the classic Sabres logo. This is the mock up of what the logo may look like:

And a mock up of the jersey:

Charlie from also adds:

"Notice there are indeed silver elements in the sabre handle and bordering the circular part of the crest. Well I have been thinking long and hard and truly believe that this picture as bad as it is (referring to another earlier, low res picture), to be authentic.

I also confidently expect the following elements to be added:

1. Dark Blue to match the current jerseys (not a big surprise for most)
2. Front Numbers
3. Front tie-up laces

This will be introduced as an Alternate jersey. Note it cannot be called a vintage uniform anymore because of the distinctive elements not present in the royal blue 1970-1996 version or the 2006 Royal blue alternate."

This is fantastic news for SJB as this will mean a explosion of mental defectives buying new fangled blank 3rds and rendering them useless immediately with their own names! I'll be patiently waiting!
