The Buffalo Sabres new third jersey was universally panned when it was revealed this summer, but last night it made its glorious debut against the Detroit Red Wings. Opinions were easy to come by, so we gathered some of our favorites from around the internet to figure out what the world thought of the new sweaters.
Here we go

The #sabres third jersey should come with the " May cause seizures" warning— punksmiteye (@bpsmiteye) November 24, 2013
Can’t decide if I’m rooting for the team in gold or the team in blue tonight. #sabres— Matt Johnson (@twoeightnine) November 24, 2013
The Sabres should really just play the whole game under this light. pic.twitter.com/vkfmwzNaaj— The NHL Files (@TheNHLFiles) November 24, 2013
I am only 70% kidding when I say that if you lose to a team intentionally wearing this, you should fire your coach pic.twitter.com/DIWzPRjjeh— Winging It In Motown (@wingingitmotown) November 24, 2013
Hey at least it doesn't say STATE OF NEW YORK above the logo. #Sabres— Scott Michalak (@ScottyMCSS) November 24, 2013
Email from Buffalo Sabres: SABRES THIRD JERSEY HAS YOUR NAME ON IT Email to Buffalo Sabres: SURELY THIS IS SOME SORT OF MISTAKE— Robert Pape (@rlpape) November 25, 2013
Someone thought this was a good idea. More than one person. I can't get over that. #Sabres— Eric Schmitz (@3rdManIn) November 24, 2013
Many people noted how the jerseys matched the product on the ice
I don't get what everyone is complaining about, these Sabres jerseys match the rest of the season perfectly.— Todd Gotmon (@FFTLT) November 24, 2013
I really dont like the Sabres third jersey but they're relevant because they look like practice jerseys and they play like a practice squad— Sam Milioto (@S_Milioto) November 25, 2013
The Sabres third jersey was built like the team; intentionally bad so that way whatever comes next looks fantastic in comparison— Jeff Veillette (@Jeffler) November 25, 2013
But it's not all bad - there are people that want them!
The Sabres third jersey is horrifically awesome. I want one because I'm a masochist and want people to make fun of me for wearing it.— Kyle Canella (@KJCane) November 25, 2013
So that's the final verdict, then, huh?
I'll take jersey takes more seriously if I know the person has never said "OMGZ ZUBAZ ARE SO COOL." Or something similar to that.— Aaron (@AaronTRW) November 24, 2013
Lowers hand, backs away slowly....
