I don't think there's a situation where the Islanders would go for that, though, considering there's already two teams in the same conference with strict blue and white color schemes.

To be fair, I would not mind the Islanders introducing a script that borrowed the Brooklyn Dodgers font (i.e. be the same damn thing) and roll with an alternate jersey built around that...but they just can't ditch the orange.
The Islanders colors come from the two counties that make up Long Island.

Nassau: Orange
Suffolk: Blue
