I think you have a valid point! I'm sure most Leafs fans would be easily fooled into cheering for a different team by changing the jersey's to blue and white.

If all the Flames fans got free jerseys with micro space ships (or whatever) in them I'd be pretty happy with them too, haha. The old jersey is still better, imo.

Crap. Just a blue Detroit jersey. Not a surprise with Yzerman as Gm. Where's the creativity?

Please. There are some Leaf fans in the Bay Area but it's not like they outnumber Lightning fans at games, more obnoxious yes. Hardly "fill their seats".

No hes talking about the thirds. Not the new ones with the chips. The thirds will be updated and kept...at least for one more season.

I'm not a fan. I guess I'm in the minority but I honestly liked the Bolts ones. This is a lot like a superhero logo and not in a good way. It reminds me of something a knock off Stamkos action figure would be wearing. No real imagination used. Really worn out format on the shoulder - the team seal in a big circle with the the text wrapping around just like Florida, Pitt, Columbus etc. and a lackluster logo on the front. Meh.

The lightning seem like a real easy team to design for and being a team very much on the rise they should have a jersey that represents them in a more specific way. These teams need to do a tiny bit of research and seek out today's best graphic designers. I'm sure they have the money to pay them.

Lol@Leaf fans whining. The jersey has a MUCH closer resemblance to Detroit's jerseys than those things you wear.

I really love these jerseys! I can only hope the new Thrash jerseys are simple like these...and not tornado looking.

Not even close.

They made a switch away from the RBK template, which is a very good move right off the bat.

I think they should've kept some silver and/or black trim, but they are still leaps and bounds better than what they wear now.

And there's at least 15 - 18 NHL jerseys that are MUCH worse than this one.

So you're saying all there is do in Toronto is watch hockey, while those in TB have more to do? Sweet.
If you havent caught on yet... really what Im doing (for the most part anyways) is throwing hyperbole out there just like the guy I originally quoted.

I guess it doesnt translate well over the intrawebs though.

I don't know if I've said it before, but I love them.

It could have been a lot worse. We could have gotten the Buffaslug. or Atlanta third jersey territory.

Same thing really, if that's where you want to go with it. I would have rather kept black and silver myself, but I missed the part where the Leafs owned those two colors and nobody else could use them.

I really dig them. It's tough to just judge when the players are just posing but in hockey action it will look awesome.



Love it. Good job Tampa.

Only thing in that picture that bothers me is the blue laces on the away. Wish they would have stuck with white.

The funny thing, even as much as I dislike it, it can so easily be rectified to look better. These are really just rough mock-ups, but the simple addition of a little detail and returning black to the logo and uniform helps tenfold:







Tampa really dropped the ball on this one. Instead of giving fans a design that could stand on its own, embracing the past while updating the look for the future, they decided to simply throw away everything that made the Lightning's uniforms unique for a copy-and-paste clipart design that's bland and uninspired.
These would be really sharp! Fans should start making the jerseys, these RBK one have become terrible looking IMO.

Hmm I believe the jerseys would look even better with no laces.
