Why not? How will we ever have throwbacks if we forever stick with the original design (or the second design, which is really quite similar)?
Now's probably as good a time as any to take a chance on a new design. And with this, our smartest ownership/management team ever, I have faith they will do the right thing. As the guy said, there's no excuse for being bland with the name Lightning. Our logo and uniforms could be GREAT, so swing away.
