What do you think? Lightning fans apparently are not diggin' them, but I kind of like them..

Licklas Nidstrom 01-31-2011 12:17 PM

Nice clean look. I can dig em'. That being said, I like their Black-White-Blue jerseys, don't know why they'd change.

MatthewT 01-31-2011 12:17 PM

im all for a classic look, but I really don't like them, pretty much a mix between the detroit home jerseys and last years leafs

The Reaper 01-31-2011 12:17 PM

those are pretty good

LightningStrikes 01-31-2011 12:17 PM

New logos: http://cdn.nhl.com/lightning/v2/ext/...marks-1200.jpg

Add Leafs fans and Red Wing fans into that group -- both were completely ripped off to make this monstrosity.

Orenji 01-31-2011 12:19 PM

Dislike the jerseys compared to their currents/old ones.

Still reminds me of Gatorade.

Love the shoulder patch.

OneMoreAstronaut 01-31-2011 12:19 PM

They look fine, but this thread will degrade into the classic HF *****fest soon enough.

mrv52 01-31-2011 12:19 PM

if you squint they look alot like the Maple Leafs...

The only part I like about these are the shoulder patches

Stjonnypopo 01-31-2011 12:20 PM

I like anything that's new.

Thus, I like these jerseys.

CamronGiles* 01-31-2011 12:20 PM

looks like something made in a video game

xtr3m 01-31-2011 12:20 PM

Looks like Mr. Y can only stand two colours on his jersey.

Also, why unveil now? Is it because of the 12 games home stand?

Hivemind 01-31-2011 12:21 PM

I like the Whites, hate the Blues.

"Retro" look with "Web 3.0" type logo clashes majorly.

You are really really upset by this aren't you?

Why not?

I'm not a huge fan of them. I think the logo is fine, but there's so little relief in the logo that it just looks like something that's silk screened on to a T-Shirt.

They should have went with a drop shadow or border or something to break it up. Right now it just seems like it's floating on the Jersey.

Devilsfan92 01-31-2011 12:22 PM

Jerseys are okay but they shouldn't have changed their logo.

Keep Squinting.

chaosof99* 01-31-2011 12:24 PM

Since these got so much hate in the other thread, I'll copy paste what I said earlier:

I don't know what it is with you guys. I like those jerseys and the new logo. Both are simple yet elegant. They definitely get props for not using black. The only complaint I have with what I'm seeing is that they could have done without writing "Tampa Bay" on the road jerseys. After all, who goes to a hockey game and doesn't know who's playing?

As for people pulling any and all logo's that feature a bolt of lightning in a circle out of their ass, have you guys realized yet that the team's called "Tampa Bay Lightning" and have had a bolt of lightning in a circle as their logo for their entire 19-year history?

Blueline Bomber 01-31-2011 12:24 PM

The home jerseys look like they'll be hard to distinguish from the Leaf home jerseys.

And those stitching in the pants make it look like they're going to be wearing blue jeans. Which would be awesome, but probably not the most comfortable thing to skate in.

Especially with the padding underneath.

danishh 01-31-2011 12:24 PM

I like the patch.
Not quite sure about the logo. Maybe it will grow on me, but right now it looks like a recoloured 'flash'.

kind of weird taking the leafs colours though. At least one team in blue and white might win a cup now.

Ricelund 01-31-2011 12:25 PM

That logo needs something more... like another poster said it just looks like a silk screened t-shirt. No structure to it. Looks like it belongs on a ****** business card.
