It’s True! Buffalo Sabres Are At The Top of This NHL List
Buffalo Sabres fans aren't used to seeing their hometown team ascend to the top of any lists these days that don't begin with "Worst..."
But there's one list where the Sabres have cracked the top ten.
When it comes to style, the Sabres rank pretty high.
The website Uni Watch ranked the best jerseys in the National Hockey League, and have placed the Sabres at #7.
List author Paul Lukas praised the return to the Blue & Gold, but reserved some harsh words for previous iterations of the team's logos:
He writes, "Another team that looks better in white, although the home blues are nothing to complain about. Either way, after all the years of visually painful nonsense — the red design, the bison’s head, the front numbers and apron strings, and of course the buffaslug — it’s great to see the Sabres getting back to basics and reclaiming their position in the league’s top 10."
The rankings took the looks of each teams' standard home and road uniforms. Uni Watch evaluated alternate and Reverse Retro (ЯR) jerseys in cases of awarding bonus points or settling a tiebreaker in their list.
