    Don't like them, could have used some creativity... well, hopefully we don't wear them much

    I do think they look better on the ice with the full kit, but the numbers are waaay too hard to read from any distance.

    Guess overall I kinda feel meh about them. Don't hate them but don't love them either.

    Think I'll wear my black Bolts alternate jersey this Saturday vs the Pens. Yeah, it's not the best either, but I got it half price when they were clearing them out after Adidas took over jerseys. Plus it's a Stralman jersey with his autograph so that instantly makes it cooler than these new...things. :cool:

    Agreed. They could use another color or two in there like the previous black 3rds with "Bolts" on the front, but it doesn't really bother me as a 3rd jersey. If people like them or buy them, all the power to ya. But I think like the past couple thirds, they're temporary and if you hate them, they'll probably be replaced again in a few years.

    I tell you what though, Batman would be proud of us.

    Probably why this look isn't really my cup of tea. I'd definitely say my ideal jersey is more so simple, plain, traditional, whatever you want to call it. It's what I grew up watching and wearing growing up. But I can understand that that might not excite a new and younger generation of fans. Interesting to read.

    I’m sure this concept was good.

    On Paper.

    I heard on the radio that there is an addition to the jersey that has never been done in sports, that is going to be unveiled in the next few weeks. No clue what that means.

    I would have been good with just the black and white. The grey as a secondary color is ******ed, not enough contrast.

    You guys are so wrong about the jerseys. The public perception is extremely positive.

    This are very "wearable" color scheme.

    They're gonna sell an ass load of this merchandise.

    Well our opinions certainly aren’t “wrong” and secondly everything i’m reading online backs those opinions up. Though to be honest i’m already over this topic, they are after all only 3rd jerseys that i’m sure will be gone within a few seasons.

    Nothing about our current identity is creative despite our unique nickname.

    That's one man's opinion.

    I see original six teams with more color and depth in their logos and uniforms, Blackhawks jump out, than us.

    It doesn't sound important.

    Or the sweater is made out of people.

    I still have mixed feelings about the new third jersey. Will be nice to get a closer look as I'm going to the TBL vs PIT game tonight.

    But, since Strålman is the man out tonight on the d-rotation, instead of my Strålman alt Bolts jersey, I think I'll dig out a vintage black jersey. Complete with victory stripes. :cool:

    Saw one of the jerseys today. I’ll admit they’re a little better looking in person, but still look like drabby mush on t.v., or from any distance really.

    Someone said on reddit that they were going to make a change to make the numbering more visible. It would be nice for them to do that.

    I don't know if they changed the arena lighting or just the broadcast but the numbers are a LOT easier to see tonight. You can also make out the gradients. Much better looking.

    The distance on tv is kind of bad to see the players numbers and names on the back. White numbers would have been better

    It really must take a genius to realize white numbers would have worked better

    Ya I see they wanted to be different I like the colors and grey. Only way I can tell the players is I know there bodies watching some many lightning games. White numbers are needed badly.
