SABRES: Web site hopes to fix 'hideous' new logo

(Continued)



Jason Reddecliff of Niagara Falls sat with friends Joe Congi, Tom Dritschel and Bill Stephens at Player’s Lounge on Friday and echoed Celestino’s opinion of the new logo.

“It’s just a buffalo,” Reddecliff said. “Where do the Sabres come into this? I don’t like it. It might be a little better if they put the swords behind it, but I don’t like it much.”

“It’s not aesthetically pleasing,” Celestino added. “There’s no focus, and it lacks character. It reeks of corporate doing, the same way that corporate people think that k-e-w-l is cool. It’s come from some designers in an office building and it feels like it’s from out of state and definitely not from a hockey fan.”

The Buffalo Sabres traded the rights of forward Taylor Pyatt to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for a fourth-round selection in the 2007 NHL draft, general manager Darcy Regier said Friday.

Pyatt, a 6-foot-4-inch, 220-pound left wing, played 230 games for Buffalo during the past four seasons, totaling 80 points.

He finished last season with six goals and six assists, including a game-winning goal against Ottowa on April 8.
