Tampa Bay Lightning – New Logo & Jerseys

Posted in Gear Sightings with tags , , , , , on February 1, 2011 by prostocknation

The Tampa Bay Lightning finally revealed their new logo and jerseys today after the original press conference date was postponed due to a tragic incident in the St. Petersburg area last week.  This will also mark the first time where a NHL team has introduced a new logo and jersey mid-way into the season.  The Lightning will still continue to wear their existing uniforms for the remainder of the year as well as debuting these brand new jerseys on February 4, 2011 against the Washington Capitals.

Gone are all traces of black and the iconic Lightning bolts on both sides of the pants.  These new uniforms have a very Detroit Red Wings feel to them (but blue/white instead of red/white of course) with a solid one color jersey and a stripe on each arm, one beneath the front crest, both sides of the pants and socks.  Can we say Steve Yzerman-inspired?

The gloves have also gone to a generic royal blue with white branding, very Vancouver Canucks-esque compared to the white/blue/black/grey color scheme before.  We’re not a huge fan of the front logo as it looks like something you can screen print yourself at your favorite local t-shirt store for a couple bucks and we still prefer the original Lightning as well as the updated Lightning bolt logo introduced a few years back.  But hey, at least they decided to scrap the ultra lame front numbers this time around.

Third Time’s The Charm Right?

Posted in Equipment Reviews, Pro Stock with tags , , , , , , , on November 16, 2010 by prostocknation

Customization plays a large part in professional equipment and under all the skates, gloves and sticks, jerseys usually get overlooked.  At first glance this looks like just your average size 58 Reebok Edge 2.0 (see our post comparing Edge 1.0 and 2.0 if you are unfamiliar with the two: https://prostocknation.wordpress.com/2010/07/30/pro-stock-jerseys-edge-vs-edge-2-0/).

One feature that all Authentic On-Ice jerseys have is the fight strap.  This is meant to tie the jersey down to the back of the pants in the event the jersey comes off during an altercation so the officials will have something to grab onto.

It’s not the first we’ve seen but some players who have been known to drop the gloves quite often have an additional fight strap on the front of the jersey to prevent it from being pulled over their head during a fight.

What’s really unique about this jersey is there are two fight straps on the back of the jersey, bringing the total to three on this jersey.  We really don’t know where the strap at shoulder height, right under the name bar, would attach to unless Hordichuk were to alter his shoulder pads as well.
