Down the road, I'd really like to see them dump the 'bolts' third jersey (I was never much of a fan of it) and unveil a third jersey like the one we won the cup in. I think it'd be a great way to honor some of the positive history that we have here in Tampa. It'd also probably be a very popular jersey among the fans that were dissapointed in a major decrease in the use of black in the new uniforms. Not to mention a "Back in Black" marketing campaign sounds too good to pass up.

This isn't a plea to scrap the new jerseys and return full time to black uniforms. But as an alternate worn once in a while during the year I think it'd be awesome.

Am I in the minority here? I haven't read through the entire thread, but I don't like Tampa's new jerseys. I thought the black/blue/white-silver they had going on looked really sharp. The new ones seem cartoonish to me. Either way Tampa's got an exciting team so it's really all moot I guess. Most of the old jerseys are probably on sale now though huh? Maybe I should look around.

LoL. Touche. I guess I'm a fan of black jerseys though I suppose they've been a bit overdone in just about every sport.

I'll tell you what - at this point I really just want to see a player wearing the entire uniform as it'll look come October. Not the promo shots from the unveiling... but the new version with black and bolts on the pants, with the gloves and all.

I agree with you on one point. If they had to add a 3rd color I would have preferred Silver rather than Black.

I don't really like that everything the Lightning have been tweeting recently has been along the lines of "Stamkos approves of new ____".

Do you think I give a **** what Stamkos thinks? Why not ask Mike Vernace about the new flooring?

They would, but they're remodeling the forum, not Norfolk.

Another signature addition will be Tesla coils on either side of the scoreboard that will shoot lightning 25 feet.

25 foot lightning bolts! It's either going to be totally bad ass or really cheesy, but it will definitely be different! Can't wait for opening night.

I think it'll look badass. It sounds as if the bolts will shoot out from the sides and never really make contact with anything. In my mind I was seeing the bolts connecting somewhere which is why it seemed unsafe.

For the sake of discussion, here's a jersey concept I found/one I created:

The first one is one I found online which I think looks pretty cool (although I'm not sure how I feel about the glowing logo). Then I modified it to look similar to the cup winning jersey. A few differences from the '04 jersey are the inclusion of the current logo and the striping being somewhat different, but overall I think it'd make for a sharp alternate.

Those jerseys seem off imo. If you're going to introduce a concept jersey, I'd rather see this:

PITTSBURGH IS ON THE CLOCK? No site has been selected for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft yet, but Pittsburgh has stepped to the front of the table as the leader (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review).

The team is also going to unveil a Mario Lemieux statue outside of the arena at some point before then. Certainly a worthy gesture.
We haven't hosted the draft yet, so this would be great to have with all the changes being made to the forum.

I like the '04 jersey on the right. Hopefully they add a black 3rd jersey down the road since the Bolts jersey and our home jersey are both blue. The 10 year cup anniversary and 25th season could be a good time to make a tribute to that original black jersey with the white shoulders. I'd love it if they did.

Love the hard work they are putting into the new building. Sounds like they are working countless hours on it.

Notice he didn't say anything about "this" year's draft.

Can we get Torontodelphia fans constantly pestering us that we're going to hold the draft now?

"Maple Flyer fan who comes in peace. I haven't been following the draft situation all that carefully, but I just heard on the radio that you guys will be cryin' in yer beer when the Lightning pick last, because they can't afford a higher draft pick. This is reality."
