Tampa Bay Lightning New Logos

Recommended Posts

As always, these are neither as good nor as bad as anyone would have you believe.

A bit too simple, but far from awful.

I agree. I don't think it's a bad logo, but way too simple for my tastes.

These are just plain horrible. I like the traditional simplicity of the Leafs and Wings, but these are far too forced and look very amateurish to me.

If you aren't the Wings or the Leafs, your jersey damn well better have more than two colors. These are boring and bland and awful. They took anything at all unique about their uniforms and got rid of it. "Practice jersey" is a common insult I've heard around here for flat-out lazy design that marketing tries to call "simple" and "classic" but is really just "lazy" and "incomplete". It's something you'd end up with in the create-a-team mode of a last-generation hockey video game.

Oh well, got a buddy keeping a lookout for a clearance Stamkos authentic for me.

You do know The Flash's logo and the Lightning logo.. Are not even close to the same logo.. I don't even see how this would be funny.

Because you take it too literally.

Lighten up and have a laugh.

It was funny.

I probably could have liked it if they had just retained black somewhere... but right now the thing I notice most is that they've nicked someone else's colour scheme.

Yes, a lightning bolt in a circle placed in the center of the chest is close enough.

better than the old one. should have curtailed the top of the bolt on the primary like on the patch logo. just makes it look a bit of an odd shaped oval.

was hoping for something a little more interesting like the stormers logo:

looks a wee bit like the flag of the british fascists from the 2nd world war:

What a complete downgrade from what they had. The whole press conference was about excitement and an iconic look, but they erased all of the excitement from their log by removing the black and silver. Now they are left with a boring look that is far from iconic. As far as the uniforms go, I think Stevie Y had flashbacks to his Detroit days, since their new uni's are pretty much blue versions of the Red Wings. IMO this new look is very unimanginative and very disappointing.

Tampa Bay Maple Leaf Lightning.

Not only did they deprive of their character with this boring logo for the sake of making it look traditional, they made themselves look like the Maple leafs with a lightning bolt logo. This doesn't look traditional. At least traditional logos have character.

Here's the famous traditional logos

Then here's boringness, bland and unoriginality (for the 3rd logo, they copied the idea of the twins with the "(name of sport) club") for the sake of being traditional!

Sheesh!

As a life long Wings fan and great fan of Stevie Y, I was a bit sad when he took on the GM job for another organization. Wanting to change the team's identity to "reflect a new era" or whatever is natural, Gretzky did it the instant he became involved with Phoenix (thank god!!!). But to basically make the lighting look like Red Wings South is a bit disappointing. I like the logos, I really don't even mind that its blue and white despite the the stated resemblance to Toronto's color scheme, but to basically cookie-cut the Red Wings uniforms into Tampa Bay is a bit too much. They could have, at least, kept elements like the bolt on the pants (still could just be white like the current stripe, just lighting shaped) and the stripes under the armpits (just white or blue depending on the jersey, would have worked here too). I mentioned Gretzky and Phoenix, what if he would've taken the old Ollers' uniform templates from his glory days in Edmonton but just used Phoenix's color scheme? In my opinion, and that's all it is, my opinion, if you are going to take the time, effort and money to rebrand your product, I say do it right and make it like something no one else has.

Why CANT we have another two color team besides the Wings and Leafs? These guys are trying to build a brand that will last for the long term. I applaud them for not trying to give us some ultra modern failure like Buffalo and Atlanta. Sure i'd love to have the bolt on the pants and the victory stripes, but I find it a solid upgrade.

Classic. Pride. Winning history. Instantly recognizable. Something Tampa fans will be proud to wear.

Because you flat out stole the a colour scheme the Leafs had only been used by the Leafs for close to a hundred years? You also stole a striping pattern that had been unique to the Wings for close to a hundred years. That's the problem.

Make the inside of the circle metallic silver and you've achieved perfection. I would buy one.
