Lol a summer to work on it and all they had was a logo on a black sweater with faded sleeves that look like they got washed too many times
Fun fact if you play nhl 19:
when you go to create your be a pro they are wearing that same all black jersey with the grey fade but with an nhl logo and diagonal stripe things across the grey fade. Ill take a picture when I get a chance.
We do have a bye-week, that'd keep the conversation going during that time.
So you're saying our uniform designers forgot to do their homework and copied someone else's?
Maybe they should have copied off of a smarter kid.
Haha I'm assuming it's a new Adidas template and the lightning creative team just threw the lightning logo on it and called it a day.
Here it is
They should just scrap it all together. Only half a season left to showcase them at home, they missed the Christmas season for sales and it seems that they aren't confident in the design.
I gotta believe they’ve already done this. I mean it makes zero business sense to release them this late and right after Christmas.
Maybe it's a rollout for next season like they did for the blue and whites. They were able to get the Lightning pants in there after the initial feedback.
Seems excessive, but if they felt it worked then...
That could also be why announcing after Xmas is a strength. Get an all-timer, rather than another BOLTS.
That was my feeling until I saw the leak and how little work had been done for it. I hate to say it but I have no reason to believe that the leak was not accurate
That jersey is ugly as sin and I wouldn't be shocked if they took some public opinion polls and went back to the drawing board.
Well, maybe not ugly, but certainly boring. If we wanted to wear our practice **** that bad, just wear it.
Found a new name for Water Street:
The ASW jerseys will actually have the team logos this time. Might have to get one.
Those are actually really nice. Steal them for thirds?
Very, very tempting! Would make very nice thirds.
Will have to probably get a Vasy one but would LOVE to get a Point one if he makes it into the ASW as Last Man In. Though I suppose Reilly will make it in due to a plethora of Leafs fans.
The ad made them look better with the blue filter.
Not as big on them now, maybe could work if The mid stripe was blue.
is it possible that TB put the brakes on the 3rd jersey for this year when the all-star jersey was going to look like this?
That or the backlash from the leak? Maybe a combination of both.
I like the teams getting individual sweaters from a sales perspective. They don't do novelty sweaters in the NHL, and all-star jerseys don't seem to normally sell that well, so making a team variant that could maybe sell pretty well (even if only in some markets each year), they can make some more money and fans get some reasonable variation from the normal kit.
Ah poo. I don't like that nearly as much with the grey mid stripe.
I agree that it could make a nice third if that wide strip was Bolts Blue.
If that strip was blue it would bleed into the black making it barely visible from a distance. Not trying to sound like a d*ck just an observation.
So they use plastic from the oceans for these? Cool stuff!
You're right, but if the white thinner stripes were framing the blue that would set them apart.
