Any rumors on what the new third is going to look like?
My money is on blue. Wouldn't want to disrupt that identity by returning to the colors that we should never have moved on from
I liked our 25 year anniversary throwbacks (see avatar). The classic white jersey with our new blue pants looked surprisingly sharp. Nice mashup of old and new style.
JerseyWatch is the best place to find any news but nothing about Tampa yet.
However Arizona and Carolina apparently will reveal their 3rds on the 22 of June.
I'm willing to bet it will be retro, but my bet is assuming they put a lot of stock into that survey last year.
Plz no Bolts.
I'd be okay with the retro. I don't really *like* those jerseys as an 82 gamer, but as a throwback I think it'd be cool every now and then.
BTW when the **** are the Flames going to go back to the Red/Yellow and drop the damn black? Seriously the Red/Yellow is the sexiest ****ing jersey.
Don't know where to put this and sorry if it's been discussed, but MLB pitcher and ex Yankee Phil Hughes is a Lightning super-fan.

quickly made these mock ups based off of a mix of retro and current.
I like it. I could see more blue added in the logo. I like it as it is but I could see them do that.
Thanks, yeah I thought about giving a blue side to the bolt but wasnt sure stevie y and co would change the primary logo, so tried to make a concept as close to what I think they will do.
Blue in the logo would bleed into the black making it a muddy mess. The only way you could get away with it would be by adding white outlines (strokes) but imo that just looks unnecessary and a little too busy (like our previous logo). Personally I LOVE these, wish they were our primaries. I mean seriously am I crazy or would this not be the best we’ve ever looked. Imo it’s a no brainer.
Both of those would be cool.
I still think management is iffy to bring back retros though, mostly because of how much demand there would be for them to become the mains.
not a fan of the font but thats pretty much exactly what I had haha never saw those before
Yeah not a fan of that number font either. But everything else looks absolutely perfect.
Not mine, but I like the colors.
Then it's not for an management team to dictate such terms to an fanbase. If black is what they want then that is what should be given.
We could only be so lucky. We're gonna look like the Maple Wings and we're gonna like it dammit!
I like our current look and think it’s a definite improvement (over previous set), however it could be even better.
