So, no one can ever have the the color "blue" other than the laughs?

Not a fan of these.

Everything looks too simple IMO. They look like rec hockey jerseys. I liked their original color scheme better.

Oh well, my team still has the worst in the league.

I 100% agree.

Their logo looks like something out of a comic book. Its simple, but not elegant. This looks like a joke IMO. Anyone of us with Illustrator could have come up with this in under and hour.

Why do we need another Blue and White set in the NHL? Black made much more sense for the lightning.

The whites look ok, but the blues are ugly. The blue it too bright and makes the white look like plastic. Really cheap looking.

The biggest thing Tampa needed was a logo change and that's the very thing that got the least attention. These jerseys look incredibly amateur.

This is the worst idea since a man thought to boil hot dogs instead of grilling. They are abominations.

Not even close. Other teams have changed more often in recent history. I could give more examples but meh.

If they're natural casing dogs, I prefer 'em burled.

I really hate it... its Embarassing, I like the Black and Dark Blue, and the lines under the arms, just... agh, I really hate the Logo, it looks like one of those EA games team logos, I don't mind the TBLHC logo but the bolt thingy just looks stupid, very cartoonish, looks like Marvel got involved with that, I really hate the Yzerman/Vinik era now. Also looks to me they became the Tampa Bay Maple Leafs/Bolts.

I know, some might sound retarded, I just felt torn when I saw this, I HATE THESE JERSEYS!!!

i think it gets blown out of proportion with Tampa because they change their logo each time they do a redesign... with the exception of the Islanders Captain Highliner logo and the Pens robot Penguin... the other teams kept the same logo and at most modified the colors in it slightly

The logo change between 07 and 08 was a retouch basically, similar to what the Blues did in 97. This new one is the only big change.

If you want a team that changes often, look at

They look pretty good, but I think they should have kept a 3rd color, either black or silver.

I don't like the logo at all though, it's too simple. It looks like something you'd grab out of clip art.

I like them for the most part, my gripe is why is "Tampa Bay" just on the away sweaters, I don't know why they would have that on one jersey and not the other. Anyone know if they will roll out a black base alternate jersey? That would be sharp.

They should of went black. Not sure what to think of it. Im for sure not liking how Tampa is turning into a carbon copy of Detroit. Like the simplicity though.

A more detailed logo would of made this jersey stand out imo.

A Tampa jersey without any silver just doesn't sit right with me. I think the silver could be applied much better but still. The Leafs are blue/white. Tampa needs to have something else on there.
The Lightning need to listen to Doc Holiday. One simple addition of silver makes these jerseys infinitely better. Well done.
