Complete Rebranding/New Look for 2011/12 (Monday 12pm presser)

Someone on the Chris Creamer sports logo board posted this about changes coming around the league next season.
Quote:
Islanders new third. Kings are changing their 3 jerseys. Tampa is changing up their home and aways. Toronto is getting a new third. Edmonton is getting a new home. Florida is changing up the home and away. Pittsburgh new third. Predators new home and away. Senators new third. Dallas new third and atlanta new third
That's according to the new Reebok catalog.

Please change the third jerseys!

I'd welcome the idea in general, even though I find our home and away jerseys pretty decent.

next season is our 20th anniversary so maybe they will bring back the old jerseys.

Not happening.

Things will change next year, for better or for worse.

That would be the greatest touch ever. I hope that they are not black, thats all I hope.

Sorry, but I disagree. I am willing to bet it will happen since it seems every team is doing it (see: Minny, Chicago, St Louis, Colorado, Calgary, Phoenix, Nashville, San Jose, Columbus, Toronto, NY Rangers, Pittsburgh, Boston, Florida, Atlanta, NY Islanders, Buffalo - 17 outta 30 to be exact)


I hope they dump the BOLTS on the blue one in favor of just the logo on the front. Not exactly sure how they would change the white jerseys though.

Although if they went with something like TAMPA BAY at an angle like Colorado has (but on current blue jersey) I'd be totally down with that.

I know this wont happen, but this would be cool too

Althought it would be funny if we changed our jerseys and colors completely and became white and red in honor of the Red Wings and Habs (yes I know they have blue too) since we pretty much are the Tampa Bay Red Canadiens. Slap our logo on the Wings home and our logo on the habs away and I think we got our new jersey,

I like the black homes and the blue thirds but absolutely wouldnt mind if they went the dark blue homes and then went black on the new third.

I think they could add some stuff to spice up the jerseys a bit I just hope they dont do too much but yeah like I said before I really really really want laces on the collars. I was hoping we would get them on the new jerseys when the logos changed, no dice. I was hoping we would get them on the third jersey, no dice.

Come on!!!

I really hope they don't go with circle logos, IE Columbus, Florida, and the light blue and off white, see two previous teams as well.

I'm curious to see what they do, but really doubt they scrap the blue thirds.

They seem to really like them from a marketing sense, and they are still pretty new. The season tickets this year came in a box that looked like the third jersey too.

Not sure what they are planning, kind of suprised to hear this considering how little they have changed over their short time in the league.

I doubt they'd do that.

One consideration as to why, is that I can't see it co-existing with the armpit stripes. Given that it was Espo's idea, and he's been re-integrated more into the team, I can't see them dropping it now.

The two together could make the sweater seem a bit too busy, and it clashes the new and old rather poorly.

Another is that laces on a primary sweater are something reserved for more 'traditional' hockey markets. Fans across the rest of the league would throw a tantrum if TB did that.

I actually like the white away sweaters, however the home darks look like they're practice jerseys.

That would be my best guess. Our new logo on the old jerseys with the black/white shoulders.

I would love if we took our 3rd, put the primary logo on it and made it our home jersey.

Makes sense. I believe under Leiweke the Seahawks changed jerseys too. Hopefully one of our colors are not neon green. Just please don't go back to the old ones.

EDIT: Also Steve Griggs, our COO was a big part in changing the Magic jerseys when he worked for them.

They'll bring in florescent orange to honor the history of Tampa Bay sports.






... seriously though, if they do the circular jersey route like my Jackets did this year and others before them, I'll go to SPTF myself and smack up somebody. Really, for the most part, there is nothing wrong with your uniforms. Even with the complaints over "Bolts" (which is a nicknaming preference that seems to be passionate among the fans -- either you like or hate it) the base designs of that jersey are still awesome. If there's radical redesign they're trying to fix something that really isn't broke.

Pretty sure the "BOLTS" jersey will be going away. It just never fit the current logo or image.

It's like Ottawa and the "SENS" jersey, which is going away as well next season.

Even if it's a ripoff of the Rangers diagonal style, if they put a lightning bolt going diagonal and said "Tampa Bay" it would be pretty sweet.

The catalog the guy mentioned said changes to the home and away. Nothing about the third.

The third is still quite new and being promoted very heavily by the team.

A hat giveaway had the diagnol Bolts logo, in a recent trip to TGH to visit the kids, the guys all wore the 3rds. And as I stated previously, the season ticket box this year used it as well.

I feel they like this jersey alot and don't see it going away any time soon.

I think the reasoning for the thirds being worn everywhere is because solid black jerseys suck, lol. And because we see the thirds so often, I think that Vinik and friends hate them too.

I always preferred if they had gone with LIGHTNING instead of BOLTS on the thirds.

Lol, that is possible.

We'll have to wait and see.

Sucks I just got a black jersey this year, good thing I only spend $35 on it. Guess it's back to wearing the old 3rd.

I might have to bust out my templates and make a concept. But I would bet the farm and JoeBucsFan's love of FSU that we switch from black to blue.
