Signed. If nothing else, maybe it could have an effect on a future third?

Is it possible the Blues were onto something? Navy and royal together looks pretty sharp.

I spot a royal blue rendition of our current jersey at 1:10 in this video (check the background):

Post the petition to all the social media accounts you own, make this thing go viral in the Buffalo area.  I tweeted a dozen times at the Sabres to bring back beyond blue n gold (I bet tons of other ppl did too)  and it's back so they clearly listen.

While it would probably be a pain for them to change over the color with all the branding changing in the First Niagara Center, I could actually see this happening, just because the Bills also use royal blue and it could bring them together in a One Buffalo marketing sort of way. I'm pretty sure my "vintage" themed Sabres hats and my Bills hats are the same exact color.

 

On another note, I'd like to see some sweet red and black third jerseys.

Lord no.  They bring back memories of the Golisano era.  I always hated those colors, and the goathead always looked like the logo for an expansion team in a beer league.

Super late but I was so happy when the Blues did this. It allowed us to have our own exclusive color combo if we ever go back to just Royal and gold.

Is there not going to be a 3rd jersey this year? Why has there not been even a peep about getting these damn colors back. So tired of the black jersey with grey and sparkles....

I feel like the current navy jerseys look really good in person, up close, but on TV, even in high def, they just don't translate that well. They look nearly black. Sometimes if you don't see the logo and look quick, on a wide angle, it almost looks like Steelers colors. This is a primary reason I want them to go back to a brighter, royal blue.

Love the current jerseys. Wouldn't cry if they lost the grey.
Any future changes should by about tweaks, not revamps, like St. Louis and Boston have done over the years.

Why not go back to royal blue original and never tweak it again

Because human nature is such that there will always be somebody that believes they can redo what is out there & make it better. & eventually one of those schmucks will be persuasive enough to say it to the right person & get his (or her) kick @ the can. :(

I for one would love if the Sabres went back to the original royal blue and gold. The red & black goathead jerseys were tied to the most successful teams I got to watch in my lifetime, but I would much rather have seen those same teams in the original colors.

 

My biggest pet peeve is the banners in the arena that seem to be a hodgepodge of all different colors and designs. It looks very... cheap. Not even mentioning that we have far fewer than other buildings, but having various colors and designs doesn't unify the building like it should.

I could be totally wrong here, but i could swear I heard on Hockey Hotline months ago that after the debacle of our last thirds, the team wasn't planning on making any more thirds for a while... quite possibly not til 2020 (50 year anniversary)

This was Ted Black's plan. Unclear if that's still the case. I really do hope we get to see a return to the Royal and a look at the black and reds for the 50th anniversary would be awesome.

Technically, they aren't supposed to bring new thirds in more than every 3 years, so they should have to have new thirds this season if they want them for '19-'20. But considering there was no '04-'05, a legit case could be made that '20-'21 is 50th. Plus, if a team can make a buck, the league often softens the rules for "special occasions." Figure 50th year would qualify for that.

Considering the number of special jerseys other teams have worn on their anniversary years having multiple alts won't be an issue (especially if we get an outdoor game which we absolutely should).

The smaller guide in the season ticket package had the old logo everywhere (without all that silver crap). Per chance an indication that something new (or old) is coming next year....
