Well then. A big move if those are the real deal. I agree that some white would help a little.

Those aren't real uniforms, just wacky ones for fans to buy and wear. They're called "Accelerator" jerseys and have been out for at least a year now.

Otherwise a LOT of teams are switching to black! Check out the Rangers!

Replicas. Check the big tag on the front by the hem

Cooler looking than the real deal? IMO hell yeah, but that's only because I'm biased toward our team colors, which, once again, for anyone 'upstairs' who might be reading this, are black & blue

Just bring back the black and get rid of the leafy blue. God I hate that blue color.

Yeah, fuck the Leafs! I hate looking exactly like them. We need a grass-roots campaign.

This x 3

I would think repeated, voluminous petition submissions combined with sustained and relentless badgering would tend to weaken their resolve over time, show we want black & blue more than they want no black & blue, and cause them to let us have some flippin' black and victory stripes already, just to shut us up and look responsive to fans' wishes

Anyone ever successfully done a petition drive?

Personally I would not want to f... The leafs, merely let them try and do it to each other or watch them attempt the impossible.

ESPN's uni watch has the Lightning uniform 89 out of 112 teams.

Their comments: Why use lightning bolt shoulder patches when you already have a big lightning bolt on your chest and your pants? Why put that ugly "Tampa Bay" lettering on your road jersey? Why have that miserable alternate uni at all?

Actually, I find the alternate jersey the best of the 3.

I find the third jersey the best of the three by far. The black shorts, and grey and white on the sleeves balances the blue so much better than the simple blue and white normal jerseys. Only thing I'm not thrilled with on the thirds is the simple lettering of BOLTS on the front. If we had a decent logo on the front, it'd be perfect.
