07:33 AM ET 11.25 | As it turns out, their third jersey wasn't much better to the Sabres than their first two, as they fell to Detroit. The Buffalo Sabres are the latest NHL team to put a third jersey into their rotation and they'll make their debut this afternoon against the Detroit Red Wings. The gold sweaters haven't been much of a hit since they were unveiled in September. In fact, team president Ted Black didn't exactly give them a ringing endorsement when asked about them last month in a radio interview. "Judge for yourself whenever you see it," Black said, according to a Buffalo Daily News story. "[If] it doesn't sell, it won't really mean anything to our bottom line. It's a third jersey. If it's a turd burger I'll have to put it on a bun and eat it. It's the way it is."

I think it would have been better to omit "Buffalo" on the front of the jerseys. That having been said, nothing can compare to the old Canuck jerseys.

The black and gold, or the original green/blue with the hockey stick?

The green/blue with the hockey stick. It reminded me of something they would design for a pee wee hockey team.

I don't think this is SO awful. Heck, it's better than those "goat" jersies they had for a few years....(black and red) and better that both dallas' "ovary" jersey and that weird thing Calgary had...what was that thing anyway?

NOTHING is worse than the Mooterus, good sir.

true....the Rangers's Planet of The Apes jersey was not too good either. We used to call it that because the "liberty" looked like the famous final shot of that movie

The 3rd jersey phenomena need to be terminated.
