Needs more colours, but I do like the logos.

Silver as a secondary colour would make these jerseys look amazing.

Pretty cool, reminds me of the Quebec Nordiques, which isn't a bad thing at all

One thing I don't get is why people are saying they ripped off Detroit and Toronto when there old (current) jerseys are pretty much the exact same design as Pittsburgh and Ottawa. Also what's with leaf fans thinking blue and white "belongs" to them? The Oilers and Islanders both have the exact same color scheme (minus slight differences in the blue and orange), and you don't see either of us complaining about it!

As for the new jerseys, I think they are quite nice and the logo has already started to grow on me. Definitely an improvement over what they have now, IMO.

I like their current home jerseys better. Keep the black!

Only thing I'm unsure about is the Tampa Bay on the secondary/away logo. Can do with that, imo... teams with tradition don't need 2 logos, one of which to tell others what city you're from. Well, unless you're from a city that's obsessed with itself. And even then you don't need more than one main logo.

And with our first pick in the NHL 2011 draft the Tampa Bay Lightning is proud to draft MY BOY who ate all the pies.. What's with that ugly STH patch?

jerseys are nice but a little black or silver would've made them even better

edit - they should at least go with a black alternate i like how black and blue look together

They're growing on me. The striping is obviously taken from Detroit's jerseys, but if you're gonna take a jersey design from a team, might as well take one of the best ones.

The original poster(who is a leafs fan) said if he squints a bit they look exactly like the Leafs jerseys. The next poster posted the cup picture telling him to keep squinting and that way the OP would see his Leaf team with the cup.

I like the logo way more on the white jerseys, I actually think the Tampa Bay wording helps the logo out more.

As others have said, the blue jerseys kind of look beer league esque because the logo looks screen printed on. Once again, as others have said, throw in some silver and youve got a nicer looking jersey IMO, (would look kinda close to the Detroit Lions honolulu blue and silver)

edit: Well the Lions blue is still a ligher blue, so I guess it wouldnt be too similar.

They are giving away a STH jersey to every STH, those wearing it get 25-35% off food and merchandise.

Why do teams add laces to their jerseys who weren't around in the NHL when laces were used???

Ah, thanks

Seeing that post isolated in later quotes, I thought I was supposed to see something in the picture. It was driving me crazy.

maybe I'm in the minority but I think those jerseys look great! I love the single stripe. Who cares if it's similar to the red wings, it looks nice.

Btw, Tampa may be competing with Vancouver and Buffalo for most jersey changes.
