New third jersey?

The long-awaited third jersey of the Sabres may have been leaked today on multiple message boards, and here's the image. The Sabres told me today they are unveiling the jersey at "Puck Drop 2008" on Sept. 20 and have no comment until then.

Thirdjersey_2 A few thoughts on the picture, which may or may not be the actual jersey (and the more I look at it, I'm not so sure it is):

*It appears there are two different shades of blue with the jersey and the logo, but rumor has it that is only because the light is reflecting differently on different materials. The blues may, in fact, be the same shade, the darker one. Then again, they may different. We'll find out next week.

*Since it's a generic uniform, the numbers that are on the front shoulder of the home and road jerseys are missing. I would assume they'll be there for this one.

*The throwback strings/ties on the collar are getting good reviews.

*It's nice to see that logo back. It has a buffalo, and it has sabres. I think that pretty much says it all.

*I have a feeling it's going to be a popular seller.
