Two thumbs up to the Sabres' announcement today that they'll be wearing their white jerseys for their four November home games against Northeast Division foes (Nov. 7 against Boston, Nov. 9 against Toronto, Nov. 21 against Ottawa and Nov. 23 against Montreal).
I say it's about time we see some color from the visitors. NHL teams haven’t worn white jerseys at home on a full-time basis since the 2002-03 season, when the league switched its tradition of white at home, dark on the road that had been around virtually since the Sabres' birth. Because of the switch, we've lost our chance to view the Habs' classic reds, the Bruins' black and gold or the Leafs' blue and we've mostly seen the visiting teams in white. Boring. Boring. Boring.
The Sabres made this request and are proposing the NHL consider it for all divisional games in the future. Traditionalists rejoice.
