Lightning To Get New "Dallas Cowboysesque" Scoreboard
 
Filed under the "Lightning have no money and an owner who won't spend money on the team".

The Lightning will be replacing their already pretty top of the line LED scoreboard next season with a new one.

It will be approxiamately 50' wide by 30' tall. Stretching blue line to blue line. Everything top of the line in design.

In his previous years renovations, Vinik added the worlds largest permanent installation of tesla coils and the world largest pipe organ.

Now with this being announced it will be the largest in the NHL by far.

I'm excited about it, Vinik is really putting his money into this team and forum for the long term and after the past few years of precious ownership we had to deal with its great as a fan to see.

Can't wait to see what it looks like. No doubt in my mind that it will be nothing short of amazing.

Was hoping it read "Dallas Cowboysesque Cheerleaders" and not "scoreboard."

Haha that would be nice too :)

First time I was at Consol and saw the Pens new jumbotron, I kept catching myself looking up to watch on the giant screen instead of the actual ice beneath me. Can't imagine how much more distracted I'd be with this thing.

Granlund2Pulkkinen* 05-02-2012 10:42 PM

That's ridiculous... I don't know why they would need that.

They don't its just like hey look at us we ain't cheap ya'll we got lots of money now and we gonna spend it on fancy new items.

I like smaller scoreboards not giant ones that take up the entire ceiling.

Drij 05-02-2012 10:45 PM

Stretching blue line to blue line? Seriously?

BarberioTheBarbarian 05-02-2012 10:46 PM

The bigger the better eh?

It's just almost too big. No reason to have that. Gaudy actually.

Mouse21* 05-02-2012 10:50 PM

can the Avs have their old one? ours isnt HD. 12 years old.

BoHorvatFan 05-02-2012 10:56 PM

Lol Avs trade 2012 2nd round pick to Lightning for scoreboard.

Well, the old one needed replacing. The bigger the screens, the more useful it becomes. The forum isn't just used for hockey either...

You don't have to look at it.

If you're in the upper deck you will.

Not really, my season tickets are nose bleeds and I hardly notice the current scoreboard. Based on the size differences the new one will be just fine.

On behalf of the Wild, I'd like to offer instead the UFA rights to Josh Harding and a 3rd rounder. I know the Bolts could use some goaltending. ;)

For an arena that's only 12 years old, I swear I've seen kitchen appliances with higher resolutions than our scoreboard.

Hmmmm. maybe we'll just stuff the old scoreboard in net next season.

Ol' Jonny Scoreboard. He isn't so good at handing the puck, but he's unbeatable through the 5 hole.

Dirty Dan 05-03-2012 01:09 AM

I wonder what its gonna look like, sounds HUGEEEE , almost TOO BIG.
Although a good canadian boy like isn't likely to end up in the st.pete times forum

It's not the size of the boat.. It's the motion in the ocean

5RingsAndABeer 05-03-2012 04:13 AM

I wonder if anyone will also try and lob a puck into the screen.

The Bored Man 05-03-2012 04:41 AM

From blue line to blue line?

Methinks the Lightning are trying to compensate for something.

Thankfully, it has undergone a name change and is now the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

That said, long-time Lightning fans will always call it the Ice Palace.

O23L 05-03-2012 02:14 PM

Just an excuse to get fans out to the game. Fans in the south obviously don't care about hockey and need other reasons to go out to the game. :sarcasm:
