Buffalo Sabres 'Turd Burger' jersey era comes to an ugly end

Rest in peace Buffalo Sabres ‘Turd Burger’ jerseys. You were great for the jokes. Your yellow (or gold, or whatever it was cold) shined like a beacon of vomit. But now, you’re officially done – off into the lore of horrible looking jerseys that will be mocked for oblivion.

From the Buffalo News:

(Team President) Ted Black admitted the team did a poor job running the design past focus groups and also said, "we didn't anticipate the amount of 'third-jersey fatigue' " in the market in the wake of the team's 40th anniversary throwbacks.

When it comes to alternate third jerseys these days, it seems like the classic approach is more the way to go these days than more strangely looking futuristic pieces like say – the “Turd Burger” look. Though still, nothing could rival the Buffalo slug.

Maybe they thought Connor McDavid would pull an Eric Lindros if he had to wear that uniform and various nights during the season?

Though such horrible uniforms end to hold places in our hearts for total awfulness. Such as the Nashville Predators mustard third uniform.

This was sort of like the “Turd Burger” before such a thing even existed. But we don't think either will have a retro night like the Coyotes did with their all black uniforms.

What is your favorite horrible looking third jersey?
