Blues, Sabres debut new jerseys

The St. Louis Blues and Buffalo Sabres introduced new third jerseys over the weekend.

Blues new one and Sabres new one

The Blues' jersey looks really sharp. I like it a lot.
The Sabres' jersey, I'm not feeling it. The piping and the front number ruin it for me.
The old Sabres logo is just ok, too nothing great, but it's definitely better the the Buffaslug. Frankly I miss the buffalo head logo the organization had in the late 90s, early 00s. I also liked the third jersey, cross sabres logo at about the same time.

I posted earlier today on a message board that I wasn't digging the new tie-up jerseys. I thought the NHL "V" made them supeflous. I see now the way Paul Kariya has his that they are not. I stand corrected.
Still I like with the tie-up jerseys designers are trying for an old school look. Yet with the new, sleek jerseys they don't look right to me.
