The next sentence will be all the attention and energy I will give to this, because it's not worthy of any endorsement that draws attention to it, positive or negative...

I would rather see the Fishstick jersey every game for the rest of my life than have to see them don that awful thing once.

They should put "91" on the front of all the jerseys. Confuse the other team.

Further explanation of how this jersey was approved:

"Terry Goldstein, The Islanders Director of Retail Operations, said the Islanders started working on the Third Jersey prototype a year ago and ultimately landed on the Black Jersey after getting feedback from the Islanders organization and players".

Maybe we should have consulted Sean Avery instead.

Terry Goldstein: “With our white and our blue jerseys we look back at our history, and with the black jerseys, we’re looking forward.”

What's to look forward with blacks Terry?

I actually like the color combination, it's pretty unique and daring. I hate the basketball style lettering, though.

That's just another way to say no other team in the NHL would make this mistake.

We do have group burnings of our black third jerseys the first Wednesday of every month.

I have a Tavares with an A. Bought it because I collect jerseys and they exist. I think some in here are too critical over a damn piece of cloth.
