SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN STORAGE: YAHOO SPORTS' Greg Wyshynski wrote under the header, "Sabres Reveal Perhaps The NHL's Worst Jersey." Wyshynski: "Somewhere, the Buffaslug sneers with glee. The Islanders Fisherman laughs." These "look like warm-up jerseys for an indoor lacrosse team" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 9/4). CBSSPORTS.com's Brian Stubits wrote under the header, "Steve Ott Unveils Sabres' New Third Jersey And It's Awful." That sweater "might surpass the Islanders' third for the worst not only in hockey but in sports" (CBSSPORTS.com, 9/4). SI.com's Allan Muir wrote under the header, "The Buffalo Sabres' New Third Jersey Is Hideous!" The sweater is "flat out awful." That "two-tone yellow body with the tiny Buffalo wordmark over the logo is so inconceivably bad, I'm thinking this has to be a bit aimed at working the internet into a lather ahead of revealing the classically beautiful real new third" (SI.com, 9/4).
