The Tampa Bay Lightning could be getting a new look next season.

While talking about the team’s new season ticket offers during Thursday’s broadcast, Sun Sports announcer Rick Peckham mentioned that the packages will include a “new third jersey” for 2014-15.

While the team hasn’t officially said the new jersey will replace the current third, which was introduced in 2008 and has the word “Bolts” running diagonally down the front, it has confirmed that a new one is in the pipeline, calling it “Jersey 2.0.”

    It’s time to admit it. John Mikl Thor was ahead of the curve.

    Thor, the legendarily cheesy Canadian faux-metal singer and champion bodybuilder was savvy enough to copyright the name and logo of the defunct Vancouver Millionaires back in 1999 with an eye on marketing team memorabilia.

    Eleven years later, he cleaned up by selling the rights to the Canucks ownership group. Since then, the team’s fans have been listening to rumors and waiting for the debut of a Millionaires-inspired third jersey.

    It finally happens on March 16, when the Canucks take on Detroit.

    The news out of Boston about Marc Savard is not good. “Marc Savard won’t play this year,” GM Peter Chiarelli told Fluto Shinzawa of The Boston Globe today. “Nothing has changed in our monitoring. He’ll be examined and he’ll be declared unfit to play….”

    “Based on what I see, what I hear, what I read, and what I’m told, it’s very unlikely Marc will play again,” Chiarelli added. “Now, knowing the uncertainty of this injury, there’s always a chance [he could play]. But based on what I’m told, it’s very unlikely he’ll play. As an employer, I support him and hope he gets back to living a healthy life.”

    This is not entirely unexpected news, but it’s not good news in any event. The NHL has taken serious and good steps to reduce the chances of concussion but, sadly, they may have come too late for Marc Savard. He’s not the only one whose career has been cut short in this manner, but everything should be done to make sure that deliberate hits to the head are no longer allowed in the NHL’s rules. Right now, that’s not entirely the case.
