Tampa Bay Lightning New Logos

Recommended Posts

For the record, I much prefer the home jerseys. Shrinking the logo to accomodate the wordmark within the confines of the logo area isn't the best idea.

I'm a traditional kind of guy but I can't stand this. It's absolutely wrong for the NHL and that franchise. And it is too forced.

First off that logo is beyond dull and I loathe the oval part. It's so dated and 90's looking.

Second off the lightning already have a recognizable colour combo. There is absolutely no reason to go with a simple blue and white combination when the Leafs own it.

Frankly I think the league ought to have a committee that approves basic things like colour schemes in the NHL. If a hard core fan can't turn on a game and know what team is playing any more something is wrong. I'm all for simple uniforms but not when they infringe on other team's identities like this does. It just makes the league look bland and watered down.

How long until we see a 3rd with a wordmark?

They're keeping the 3rd with a wordmark that they already have for now.

Hey, thanks for reminding us how a blue and white logo looks nothing like a red and yellow superhero.

I like the logos and uniforms on their own, but when viewed in the context of the whole league I can't help but feel that they're stepping on the toes of the Maple Leafs, who got their first, by far.

You don't rip off the New York Yankees or the Boston Celtics or any other historic franchise. The Leafs fall into that category.

Shoulder Patch

The rest of the package is mediocre, but the shoulder patch is perfect.

The 90s? I actually liked the 90s styles: Rangers Liberty was great. Islanders fisherman was ok. I even liked the Coyotes trio of threads, and even the Lightning's rain jersey. The 90s were far from this boring. This is about as boring as a 1910s or 20s uniform. Bold > boring.

In the minority here. I like them. Nice and clean. I could see the gripe about the colors, though. I'd like to see them work on getting those pants to match the blue in the jersey.

Honestly -- and I've mentioned it before here-- I always thought the Lightning used a wordmark over all variations of their chest logos because of a potential lawsuit from DC.

There's no Helvetica anywhere else in the identity

It says "Hockey Club," and Sport Club roundels are so tiresome

"Tampa Bay Lightning" is radially arched while the redundant "Hockey Club" is vertically arched

Again, the "Hockey Club" is much smaller than "Tampa Bay Lightning," making it even more of an afterthought
