I like the certainty, the authority with which this line is delivered. What's the source of it? And, can you provide any more insight, details, photos, a free example jersey to the first person who asks this question?

No way did you put exactly what I was thinking, LOL.
They could've just as well named them the Thunderbolts, and they'd be the "Bolts", a plural, like all sports teams should be until the end of time. While we're ruling out Bolts and Habs, let's go ahead and nix Pens and Sens (yecchhh), as well as "Avs" and the abomination that spawned it, the practice of naming teams after singular or collective nouns
I realize lots of people like the name Lightning or have come to accept it, so nothing here is directed at them. Personal preference rules
