#1 - Aren't all remaining Islanders fans are "die-hards" ? We've finished third or worse in 22 of the last 23 seasons, last won a division in 1988 and a playoff series in 1993. I think it's "die hard" or "used to root for the Islanders."

#2 - I own a Ziggy Palffy jersey with the traditional logo on the Fishsticks uniform.



My college roommate was from Long Island and lived three miles from a team store. He was supposed to get me an authentic traditional jersey, but because he is an evil Rangers fan and wanted to see the look on my face when THAT came out of the bag, he wasted $20 of his own money (he found a deal on the traditional, and instead of handing me cash back, used the difference and his $20 to add the replica).

It was kind of nice to have a "I can play pickup games in this and not ruin my good one" jersey.
