The Tampa Bay Lightning finally unveiled their new uniforms and logo today, and I generally like them.
The new logo is a bit simpler (evocative of Captain Marvel, though thinner), a little superhero-ish, but okay. I’m a minimalist at heart.
And while I will miss the all-black uniforms that I think are fantastic, I loooooooove the lace-up collars, which I think are awesome on a hockey sweater (even if they’re faux-laceups, because they really serve no purpose). Losing the black and the silver and other little things that have gone into this team’s identity over the years is unfortunate, but this is the world in which we live.
You can check out a gallery of the new look here. The color combination and the simplicity of the uniforms reminds me of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Only Tampa Bay has actually won a Stanley Cup since the Johnson administration.
