0031: That Which Will Never Be

A few days ago, we learned the Buffalo Sabres retired their third jersey and have no plans to rejoin that club for the foreseeable future. Apparently, the new owner wants to build the brand and the best way to do so is by foregoing extraneous jerseys. However, before all that, there were rumors of the Sabres potentially swapping their royal blue alternate sweater for a black one. Mat Ware demonstrates what such a jersey might've looked like. With the Sabres' new owner so intent on establishing a brand with staying power, we can probably count on never seeing anything like this for real — at least while he's at the helm.
