In any case, black and orange is my favorite color combination, so this could potentially look awesome IMHO.

Im also inclined to not believe this "friend of a friend (e68)" kind of rumor.

They should just go back to the orange ones. Black sounds like a really bad idea.

Regardless of how it looks, I am very unhappy with this news. I guess because there was so much optimism to end the year, something had to be done to bring us back down. Imo if they try and make a black, orange, and blue jersey it will FAIL terribly.

How about the league stop trying to fleece people of there hard earned money on nonsense like "alternate" Jersey's that ring up to the hundreds of dollars. I know other sports do it but the NHL is blatant about having multiple Jersey's each and every season leaving the poor fan left out to spend more just to show there undying loyalty to a group of individuals who can care less. They then turn around and come out with a "newer" jersey. I still have the original Islanders Jersey I bought when I was 14 and I got it as an XL so it can always fit me. Had no interest in buying the gordon fisherman, no interest in buying the orange/blue nonsense and I still wont spend my money on the newer one.. which is just like the old one.

Rant over

I think team colors are as much a part of an organization's identity as their logo. The Islanders orange, blue and white are their colors and they shouldn't deviate from them. Black became trendy back in the glory days of the Raiders, and then any team without imagination would incorporate black into their color scheme. New fanchises used black in their uniforms and other teams added a black jersey or hat.

No black, please!
Would you please post a pic of the current Vancouver Black jersey? For some reason I have no clue what you are referring to.

Even if I liked the black jerseys, I don't think I could get used to them.

I was thinking the Knicks, I don't know why any Islander fan would want to have anything to do with Cablevision or the Mets.

If done right and simply a black and silver and grey jersey would look bad-ass, IMHO

It isnt a current jersey, but I believe this is what the OP meant.



Always liked these jerseys BTW and prefer them to the current green and blue abominations with the "fail whale" on the front.

I'm confident that panic made you say this comment and not actual reality. I'd rather the Isles wear pink than have the Fisherman ever again.

We all hate the idea but when it comes out the majority of us will go out and buy it anyway.

IceAce posted the picture. In the 90's the Canucks had that black jersey with the "flying skate" logo. For years Vancouver had those cool green/blue jerseys (there current 3rd jersey, I think), then black became the trendy color (I think it had alot to do with the Raiders).

Getting a little off topic (no not the ziti discussion again), I think the Canucks whale jersey looks like a 5 year old drew the design.

1. Nobody's forcing you to buy the jersey
2. People without $300 to spend won't be buying the jersey
3. How dare Charles Wang or any other NHL owner try to make money

This franchise is starting to turn the corner in terms of on-ice talent, I thought maybe this board could finally chill with the constant Chicken Little attitude. Islanders have been a franchise since 1972 and have never once tried the black alternate. You can only do so much with Navy Blue and Orange. Let's look at the color scheme of the other black alternates in the NHL:

Quote:
Philly (3rd) - Black and Orange
Boston - Black and Yellow (blackandyellowblackandyellowblackandyellowblackan dyellow)
Pitt - Black and Beige
TB - Black and Rhite
Carolina (3rd) - Black and Red
Ottawa (3rd) - Black and Red
Vancouver - Old ones are Black, Yellow, Red
San Jose (3rd) - Black and Teal
Anaheim (3rd) - Black and Dark Orange
Phoenix (3rd) - Black and Red
Los Angeles (3rd) - Black and White
Chicago(3rd) - Black and Red
Dallas (3rd) - Black and Green
Calgary(3rd) - Black and Red
One color scheme that isn't on the list? Black and Blue. Just like we left the Penguins on 2/11, no other team is doing Black and Blue.

Is there a chance the jersey could look terrible? Knowing the way the Islanders are operated, absolutely. But please reserve judgment, otherwise you're gonna hate the jersey no matter what it looks like, something called self-fulfilling prophecy.

Sign me up for a Tavares, Okposo, de Haan, Hamonic, plus future 1st round pick. One for each working day of the week.

The Islanders are so damn pathetic.

They're like the dork in H.S. who waited until something ran out of style before trusting that it was cool (at some point in time).

Chasing father time for acceptance.

Black was in in the 90's in Compton and Crenshaw.

A day late and a dollar short.

They suck.
