Though I also think the guest list hinted at something more than uniforms, just noticed this brief note in the paper from DC:

Quote:
The Tampa Bay Lightning postponed its scheduled Monday news conference that was to display next season's new uniforms because of the police shooting in St. Petersburg. A new date will be announced.
Hopefully they'll reschedule soon, but let me just say they have all kinds of tact/class/respect for the community by postponing.

Agreed.

Might I just say, isn't it awesome having a team core that knows how to keep its business under wraps? This news came from Icethetics, what, a week ago? That gives me confidence for more sensitive issues that need to not leak.

i think they were also going to bring up something about being a season ticket holder. Would make sense. We are in a high position and they may very well be starting a push for season tickets for next season with some of things like the uniforms, while letting those know if they commit for next year they can get play-off tickets this year.

Sad to hear the news about the shooting and postponing but as Sotnos said it shows tremendous amount of respect for the community for postponing the announcement.

Put my vote down as prefering 'home whites' over 'darks'.

I'm glad they postponed it because of the shootings. My parents lived next to Jeff Lacey, the professional boxer brother of the shooter. It's a really sad day. I hope they don't postpone it too long though because I want to see the new uniforms. I'm surprised there's no leaked pictures yet.

That'd be a league decision I think.

Yeah they'll squeeze it in. Fortunately these things don't happen every day in the Tampa Bay area...(?)

Now that's what I'm talking about...if all the stuff we've seen is already known, then there have to be pictures, somewhere, in somebody's phone, please send to me at 813-867-53--oh never mind

I can tell you that this group is MUCH more sensitive about letting information leak. It is a HUGE difference from the circus. Ex: When we saw the leaks of the current uniform new logo's I got a "can not confirm or deny" reply from a friend on the staff. I've gotten many, many more leaks (which I like to call advanced info) than this when the Circus was in charge. Not anymore. All class from here on out.

Call me lame, but I like darks over whites for home. I like seeing games with the home crowds decked out in the team's colors, either it be red, blue, green, Coyote Ugly, purple, whatever. It's just an awesome contrast with the ice and the 12 players on it. BUT I'm not saying the road teams MUST be white, they don't. But it's just a problem if you'd have two teams of similar color. So I don't think that'll change any time soon.

I love seeing the Bolts all decked out in black at home. I want to see my team in its full colors. The bad guys are the bad guys. They SHOULD look all the same IMO.
