Default For those who still hate the new team crest...

...it could be worse. It could be this concept I came across:

Holy crap is that awful. One thing I appreciated about our current logo is they kept the same bolt. That one looks like it's trying to be a tornado or something. Totally cartoonish and amateurish.

Every aspect of the concept they put forth - the jersey, the color scheme, the use of color on the sweater -- was entirely pathetic. I mean, I've seen different concepts for years that haven't been great... But this was supposed to be "Retro" and instead comes off like something out of the old roller-hockey leagues or something.

I realize it's just a concept but thank GOD this person isn't involved in making up real logos and jersey's for the NHL...

This entire thread basically boils down to "Hey, it could have been worse."

This is the same way a lot of folks (including me) have felt about the Lightning name, and their logo, since they were first announced ca. 1991. Not tremendous but not nauseating either. Having just watched the DVD of the 2004 pre- and post-Game 7 shows with the locker room celebration, I'll admit the truly great thing about the Lightning name is that it appears ON THE CUP....forever. Only once, but once is one more time than we ever expected the Lightning to win the Stanley Cup, that's for damn sure

Hope I live to see it again

Not retro, just scary. Don't like the shade of blue either.

I have never seen a "limp" lightning bolt.

I'd rather see the regular logo on a 3rd jersey than the BOLTS garbage.

Are you trying to say we need to pick up Cialis as a sponsor?

In all seriousness, the Marvel Comics logo looks awful. Who designs this? I could come up with a few good ones.

You and me both, friend. I see stuff like this and laugh. I mean, who is mocking these up? What Lightning fan would ever think to design something like that?

This puts me in the mood to mock up a jersey, myself ..
