Today the Lightning unveiled their new logo and jersey's for next year on their online video feed today. The home jersey's are the blue ones that St. Louis and Stamkos are wearing, and the away jersey is the white one that Lecavalier is wearing.

Gone is the black from the current ones and the Lightning bolts on the shorts to a jersey that people are comparing in likeness to the Red Wings' jersey or the Leafs' jersey.

My initial thought on the jersey: I like it

No seriously. I really like it. I like the simplicity in it, I like the blue and white and the ties at the collar. And the arm bands. And I like the old-school feel of the patches. The logo is so simple I can draw it.

If you don't like it, well I'm sure it will grow on you, just give it some time.
