IMO there will be a B-R-O-O-K-L-Y-N lettered 3rd jersey in the Isles first year at Barclay's. No logo, just lettering. They retained the NY Islanders name, logo and uniform. There will be 3 years for the move to sink in. At that point I think they'll have to throw a bone to Brooklyn and acknowledge that identity as well.

Most importantly though, that BROOKLYN 3rd jersey would sell ($$$) like freakin' hotcakes. It would also lend itself to t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. with the same design, which would be important to have the locals in a boro of 3 million to have the opportunity to wear.

I think it's kind of unrealistic to think they wouldn't immediately cash in on the Brooklyn brand and show at least a p/t identity with the 3 million residents of Brooklyn.
