New Logo, etc.
From Raw Charge:


A media advisory was sent out by the team around 8:50 this evening, indicating to media that:


The Tampa Bay Lightning will make a major announcement concerning the organization’s complete brand and business transformation
And the location of the event isn't on the concourses of the St. Pete Times forum, but on the ice. While CEO Tod Leiweke, owner Jeffrey Vinik and GM Steve Yzerman will be in attendance, Martin St. Louis, Vincent Lecavalier, Steven Stamkos, Dave Andreychuk and Phil Esposito were also advertised as part of the presentation.

It's the location that makes me think this isn't just about potential Times Palace renovations (which Cristodero hinted on, in print, this morning)

The Great Zo 01-23-2011 09:51 PM

The list of people they're bringing in for this is what has me the most intrigued. I wonder if it could be something more than the renovations and even more than the jersey / logo redesign.

Maybe they are finally going to do something with the land and bring to building up to what it should be.

With all of the players attending you'd think they are announcing new captains.

Maybe they are all going to be on the Gasparilla float since they will be in town for awhile. :D

Someone on twitter talked about renovatiosn tot he arena, on all levels. That will be part of the announcement. But think about this: Toronto Media is in town... You don't make a news conference announcement with the hockey media's eyes on you for something like that.

Besides, we knew renovations were ongoing with the arena -- Vinik had said money was going into the building a while back - and the flooring situation was just the start of it (along with the boards and new Zamboni s).

Anyway, it does feel odd that they would make any type of logo / sweater announcement NOW, mid season. But with who is going to be in attendance... I can't think of something major by comparison that would include the three major faces of the team (plus the father of the franchise and one of the team's decorated heros).

I sent an email to my rep. Will post the response.

I would imagine to has to do with something like a ring of honor. What a better group to make the announcement.......then they can fight off the pirates :happydance:
