From 1992 to 2007, the Lightning's uniforms changed very little. Even when the team underwent a minor makeover in 2007, the only alterations were a change in the font used and a touch-up on the logo.
However, with Steve Yzerman's desire to create a hockey tradition in Tampa Bay, the team will adopt a new look for the upcoming season, completely devoid of the team's primary color for the past two decades.
Following the jersey's initial introduction, there have been minor tweaks made to suit the preferences of Lightning fans.
Though the design looks like a direct copying and recoloring of the Detroit Red Wings' red uniforms, and blends uncomfortably with the Toronto Maple Leafs' color scheme, the new look is certainly a welcoming addition to the franchise.
