Not horrible...



I hope it's unveiled at the draft so we can get it over with, and not 2 months in to the season.

Mock up the black Dallas jersey, change the gold/green to blue/orange and replace the word "Dallas" with "Isles" and you have the third jersey.

Votes like that on big websites do not wind up representing fans.
Whatever uni you guys hate the most people would vote for it just because they would think its funny.

I personally love the Fisherman Jersey. I thought it was an awesome design, and if our team wasn't run by a depressing string of bumbling idiots I think more people would agree with me. Unfortunately, the Gorton's Fisherman represents such lousy play and ownership that I will never be able to witness those beauties on ice again. But if I had it my way, I would make the Dark Blue Fisherman Jersey's our official 3rd Jersey.

Sorry but black orange blue and white must be the worst color combination I have ever heard of. Black white and orange? Okay. Black and white? Sure. Black and orange? Festive. Black and blue? I prefer medium. black orange blue and white? vomitttt.

No "Isles" please. I'd rather have the Fisherman choking a Rag Doll as our 3rd Jersey Logo.

No need to say sorry. Notice I said "not horrible". I don't agree with Black at all. For a 3rd I want the inaugural jersey with the Orange numbers, with or without Name Plates.

I don't understand why "the powers that be" can't grasp that a simple, crisp jersey that ties our team to our rich history is what the fans want.

Some of these concepts are very high quality work. Some are pretty good concepts. But I don't think they'll be widely accepted if they're too drastic of a change.

If the Islanders are going to introduce any new elements, they have to be a in our primary colors, and start as accents. If you're introducing a new color, it has to be an accent to our traditional jersey.

Like, when they deepened the colors, it was fine, because they were restoring the traditional uniform look, just a little richer for TV instead of stock royal blue and stock orange. The four stripes, while some thought them silly, basically to say "hey fans, we remember our history and we're sorry about the fish sticks."

When they changed the uniform and the colors, it was a rebellion. If they started small by taking the traditional uniform, making the stripes wavy and adding the lighthouse logo in our colors to the shoulders as a third jersey... it would probably have sold like hotcakes. Then someone would have said "I LIKE the shoulder logo, that logo should be our third." Then they can add a sea-tone accent stripe after were used to it.

If you introduce something completely new, fans freak out. We don't like change.
If you slightly change something, but keep it consistent with our overall look, you can get away with it.

Now we are trying to copy a team thats in more trouble then us (phoenix) I may be getting a little ahead of myself but this does look like it could be the colors of our 3rd jersey now.

Nah, that website is known for swapping logos in other teams colors.

Basically just recolored the old wave jersey. Replaced the navy with our traditional royal blue, updated the orange (darker), and changed the teal to powder blue. Just a 3rd jersey idea while we await the coming disaster...



And yes, we're bringing back Palffy.

Agreed. Let's move forward. I want no reminders of the darkest days of this franchise. Sorry Gorton lovers, but that jersey design and color scheme would've been a disaster for any team. When you look at a jersey it should be sharp and timeless. You shouldn't have to look at one and go "Holy 1990's Batman!"

I love the wave with the traditional Isles logo.

Not sure of the powerder blue. But would like the the letters/numbers to be Orange.

there are only 2 things I liked on the fisherman jersey.

1) the Lighthouse logo. I really like it, and I would love to see a 3rd jersey designed around that logo with updated colors of course.

2) The font. Not for a hockey jersey, but I like the font for other applications.

Love all you do Law...but...all I see is a a NYI beachball on a wave in this jersey. We have some interesting colors in the water here but I've never seen orange!

I wish this team would PLEASE stop screwing around with this uniform. They have it right last year and should just leave it the classic that it is.

BLACK???? On a NYI uniform???? How does that make any sense??? Well...maybe we can call is asphalt black in honor of the parking lot at the NVMC if this new building does not get done...
