Sabres, Coyotes And Blues On Deck

Oh and as if it weren't enough that the Thrashers, Flyers, Stars and Blackhawks unveiled their jerseys and the Blues started selling theirs (prior to the unveiling I might add), there's still more news. Not huge, but worth posting anyway.

The Buffalo Sabres have acknowledged their new Rbk EDGE uniforms on their official web site. See the graphic.

So there that is. Incidentally, the AP released this photo of Ryan Miller being photographed in said uniform. Solid, mostly unchanged.

So we move on to Phoenix where their web guy isn't even trying. I'm sorry, but really? A giant Rbk Hockey logo?

Tease us with a little logo embroidery like everybody else or something. Oh, that reminds me.

The Blues will probably be second as the Coyotes will launch their new threads at 11 AM. The Blues come about 30 minutes later. Anyway, that's what I was talking about with the whole logo embroidery teaser thing. It's fun. But teased we need not be. The Blues started selling replica jerseys today so we won't be surprised tomorrow.

Quite frankly, it's one of my favorites of the new crop. Those shoulders are nice. I wish more teams had tried something like that. This particular image was provided to us by Brad at St. Louis Game Time.

Anyway, I've got one more item as a special bonus for those of you who made it this far through the post. We've got another picture of the New York Rangers' new Rbk EDGE sweaters.

Check it out. Chris Drury is modeling the new home sweater for a camera. I don't know where this photo came from though. It was simply emailed to me. But we've seen the jerseys before. It's the same.

Enjoy your Friday night now, and don't spend too much time on the computer!

Man, does Drury look spaced-out or what?

Wow, the Sabres actually had the stones to acknowledge something regarding their uniforms.

Consider Buffalo the original RBK Edge guinea pig. And since it will take awhile to proove to the good people that stupid logo was not the reason those jerseys sold so well last year, the NHL and the Sabres are riding on this false validation and are milking it for all it's worth.

Looking at the Rangers, Chicago has the white shirt tails too on the dark jersey...

Matthew...maybe Drury is doing this photo op a little too far away from home...he gets homesick you know. That essentially was the reason explained by the front office why he left Buffalo for the Rangers. PR and logo design, a Sabres specialty.

LOL semi colon parentheses.

The Sabres shouldn't be advertising their "new" jerseys at all. They were Reebok's guinea pig for the Edge system, and they didn't change a thing besides the fit and throwing on the NHL shield at the neck.

Shame on the fans who bought into it in the first place. And DOUBLE shame on those who buy it again at twice the price.

Even now, after seeing so many of the new uniforms around the league, the Sabres are still among the absolute worst.
