Reserving judgment until we see the final real deal. Because, you know, they haven't had much time to plan, discuss designs, poll the fan base, or anything...

More silver please. The 'BOLTS' should go too.

Obviously the shoulder patches would be different. Meh.. Was hoping we'd say goodbye to the BOLTS thing at least.
If this is the best they can come up with after how well the big redesign was received, fire everyone involved.

It's going to be black, yes. It's not going to be a mere update to the outgoing thirds, no.

Color me shocked if HF is wrong...

The name "Bolts" should never again be on a third jersey anymore than Montreal should unveil something that says, "Habs".

It's like they hired one of Jerry's kids to design this stuff. Oh well, I guess I should just be happy it's not maple leaf blue with 'Ning on the front.

Again that is a FAN mockup, not the real thing. Just the closest thing found to a black version of the current third. It's all hearsay on another forum too.

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

Now they're saying it doesn't say "BOLTS" on the front. Fingers crossed?
