It's a little deceiving. They gave it to all season ticket holders for renewing or signing up for season tickets. In fact every one in that picture has the STH little black patch you can see.

It has a a little thing on it that says STH (season ticket holder) and a chip in the arm for discounts.

I refuse to wear it, because it looks like :censored:. But I'll bring the other one they gave me in a bag to get the discounts. A little much? Maybe, but I wouldn't be on this board if I wasn't weird about logos/unis. I think the new branding is a joke, and I don't want any part of it.

Didn't season ticket holders get free jerseys with discount chips embedded or something? (All of the jerseys in that shot seem to have some logo on the front right shoulder.)

I like the new TB look, but agree is does suck when they face Toronto.

I guess this is one of the few cases where BFBS is actually being called for.

No worries. I don't think everyone knew about it.

But it does make it appear that everyone is loving the jersey and wearing them. Honestly I could probably count on my hands the number of non season ticket holder jerseys I see per game.

Looks like Legend beat me to it. I'll give credit to the Lightning for that strategy though. If you want to make a color change and know it might not be universally adopted by the fanbase or even particularly popular, give free jerseys to the people that will be in the best seats every night and sweeten the deal with discounts. Gives the impression that the blue is popular and the casual fan might be tempted to jump in. I applaud you, Legend, for your resistance.

EDIT: Wow, beat by Legend twice in two attempts on this thread.

It isn't Black For Black's Sake when black was the primary color for the franchise's entire existence.

Wtf? I thought the black/purple King jerseys were dead?

Not completely, they were regulated to alternate status.

The bolts/leafs matchup along with the jets/jackets fiasco, maybe somebody should remind the league that there's more colors than just blue out there.

There's also red! And black! And... other shades of blue!

The Lightning wore black jerseys as their primaries for their entire history up until this year.

It can't be BFBS when it was always what they featured first and fore-most. And while I'm at it, there's not a doubt in my mind this is the Lightning have ever looked:

Once the madness of having drop-shadows or crazy fonts on the numbers and names died down, they had a very nice and understated template. Wish they had never gone away from that look.
