Not sure how I feel about the laces on the front. I'd rather not go down that road.

I really like the black. If they're going to blue for home jerseys then I hope a new, black 3rd is made.

Also.. no silver trim? I hope we don't end up looking like the Leafs.

I think if SFY had some input he probably wanted to simplify the color scheme a-la Detroit to make it look more classic. I think blue as the primary color on the home jerseys will look great. I'm guessing they may go with some horizontal stripes on the bottom. Maybe white and silver? If the black is going away, I'd like some silver to stay. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do.

The primary colors apparently will be blue (close to what is used now with the third jersey) and white. Sounds as if the color black, which has been the team's prominent color, and the silver trim will be gone. The logo on the home jerseys is expected to be just a prominent lightning bolt without the words Tampa Bay that are used now. The road jerseys are expected to have the lightning bolt and the words Tampa Bay, though no immediate word on how the design will look. It is believed there also will be the classic strings at the front of the collar.

It also is unclear whether the third jersey will be retained as its color is believed to be so close to that of the home, dark jersey.
Man, what a bombshell! No black??!? No silver?!?!? Sorry but I'm permanently held back in Old School crammed into a tiny desk with the inkwell hole when it comes to changing colors. The colors are your identity more than your name, logo, sweater & socks design or anything else. Can you imagine the Bruins skating in orange, white and blue, or the Habs taking the ice in green & burgundy or some shit? It looks incredibly stupid to me when teams do this, though I make an exception for the Yotes since they never had a color scheme to start with and what they did have was butt-ugly. Sharks added a bit of orange, it looks cool but unnecessary.

Looks like blue is the new black, which studies show is the #1 selling color in sports merchandise bar none. Turds, Trash, Lanche, Pens, now Bolts...OK by me since it's my favorite color, but Bolts in black has been a league mainstay for too many years to stop now. They should retain some black & silver on there for continuity IMO

So long as they aren't (Phoenix) Coyote ugly, I really don't care. But, the next jersey I buy for any team/any sport will be the first.
