Saw the new scoreboard in person, very impressive. As cool as the pictures are, they don't do it justice imo.

Question: is the new scoreboard high resolution enough that if you play a video of the sun, people go blind?

The Tampa Bay Lightning have named Total Hockey as a preferred partner today, the organization announced. The two organizations will collaborate in an effort to grow the game of hockey at the grass roots level and encourage green efforts in the sport.

The partnership’s first endeavor is to integrate HockeyGreen at the professional hockey level. HockeyGreen is Total Hockey’s composite stick recycling program that rewards players for going green by recycling their broken and unusable composite hockey sticks instead of discarding them. Every broken composite hockey stick is eligible for a $10 credit towards a qualifying stick purchase at Total Hockey.

The new partnership between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Total Hockey incorporates the HockeyGreen program at the Tampa Bay Times Forum and the Lightning’s practice facility, the Brandon Ice Sports Forum. Broken composite sticks will be collected from all players who practice and play at the rinks.

In an effort to find a way to recycle carbon fiber, Total Hockey is collecting and housing large amounts of carbon fiber materials to provide scientists with a large cache for research and development. These third party organizations are focusing on finding efficient and cost-effective ways to recycle these resources.
Quote:
In exchange for the Lightning’s participation in HockeyGreen, Total Hockey will be providing hockey equipment for use in local youth hockey development programs. This partnership demonstrates Total Hockey’s commitment to growing the game of hockey throughout the nation. As the exclusive hockey equipment retailer of USA Hockey, Total Hockey supports youth hockey endeavors and continues to help increase youth hockey participation across the nation.

Quite honestly, if it's not the Bolts or Bears, it's not worth seeing.

The Lightning and Sun Sports agreed on a contract extension that begins with the 2013-14 season and guarantees at least 70 games televised annually.

No other details were available from either the team or Fox Sports Florida, which oversees Sun Sports. But it is believed the deal is for between seven and 10 years and will pay the Lightning more than the average $6.5 million it gets from the current contract that was signed in 2000 and runs through this season.
Quote:
Ratings for Lightning games have skyrocketed from .60 in 2009-10 to 1.39 in 2011-12. A ratings point equals about 18,000 homes.

The Sabres are going even younger.

I think the response by the Lightning should be going after them in utero.

At 16 weeks: 16 wins



The tv contract runs 7 to 10 years? What's all this noise about term limits?

This is your reality now, NHL.


Uh Oh.

I was told that they are working on the exact dimensions right now. If current plans go through, it should be the largest arena Jumbotron in the league next season.

Anyone know if the 20 year patch is for sale? Can we get it put on our jerseys at TBTF?

I tweeted the Bolts, but they did not respond.

Thanks!

@SBJSBD (Sports Business Journal/Sports Business Daily) is just generally being a pain by not putting this together, but over a series of tweets:

Quote:
"It's very critical over the next few years that sports franchises are well-managed." - Lightning owner Jeff Vinik at #sbjwcs
Quote:
Jeff Vinik: "It's a very special bond that you have to form between 20,000 fans that you cannot get at home." #sbjwcs
Quote:
Vinik: "One of the reasons I bought an NHL team is that we have a hard cap and the Lightning can compete with the Maple Leafs." #sbjwcs
Quote:
Jeff Vinik on living in TB: "A critical part of building the Lightning brand is being part of the community." #sbjwcs
Quote:
Asked if owning a team is fun, Jeff Lightning owner Jeff Vinik said, "It's the best thing I've ever done."
there's also a RT by @ChrisBottaNHL, but I can't find it SBJ's timeline.
Quote:
RT @SBJSBD Lightning owner Jeff Vinik: "When I bought the team, I was aware of all of the real estate opportunities around the arena."

Went to the Thunderdome back in January '94 against the Flyers for my 8th birthday. Tampa won 4-2 and Rudy Poeschek got a bloody nose in a fight. Great memories.

Anyhow, as much as a miss Tampa's old jerseys for nostalgic reasons, however these new blue ones, even as a Habs fan I have to say, probably the sharpest in the league.


edit: By the way, that is one nice looking scoreboard, wow.

Sorry if this was already mentioned, tried to search the thread but as far as I understood Ray Horsley isn't playing the organ any longer, why is that, he seemed to be awesome at it!

Jeff Vinik is shutting down his hedge fund firm in order to spend more time with his hockey team and family.

Vinik will be returning billions of investor money back to them by the end of June.

...hey, Vinik, I plopped a billion in there somewhere, be sure to get that back to me ASAP, k?

If I were put in charge, TB would be kicked out of the KHL within the year.

I see it as a good thing for the Bolts, right?

Itís worth noting the Lightning have had previous ownership issues.
But why do they write this? He will still have more than enough money after the hedge fond is shut down.
