Islanders fans asked about name, color changes

The resident, who asked to remain anonymous, said he took part in a session that raised the idea of dropping orange from the team’s jerseys and changing the team’s name to just “Islanders Hockey.”
“It was really about the move and about what kind of jersey they’re going to have,” the resident said of the focus group. “They were really pushing to lose the orange color and be like the old Brooklyn Dodgers.”
The Isles should just add Brooklyn and Queens to their logo period. I just hope the NHL goes back to home whites. If the teams want to wear color at home, then they should wear dark jerseys on the road. Canucks and Penguins wore yellow at home and black on the road in the 80s.
