Bring back the fisherman jerseys as 3rds, IMO it would be pretty funny.

Ah the fishsticks jersey.

That era is dead and buried however. And I'm pretty sure 98% of Isles fans agree. Not to mention the whole Gortons lawsuit.

Now those jerseys are like a nostalgia item, like if you have a Wild Wing Ducks jersey or Tampa's first jersey (now that is one fugly jersey!) But hell, I still rock my Vukota jersey once in a while.

When it comes down to it, the Isles don't need a 3rd. An Orange variation of the new jerseys might be cool, but they probably wouldn't translate well.

As others have said in the past, the Lighthouse patch on the shoulder of the "Fisherman" jerseys might make for an intriguing 3rd, but I think most of us are purists and prefer the idea of staying as close to the original jerseys as humanly possible.

Let this team start winning rounds in the playoffs for a few seasons and maybe a progressive 3rd jersey becomes something to consider. Until then let's keep reminding ourselves of our treasured history - it's what keeps us sane.
