Much nicer, gets rid if most of my concerns. I like that the pants are switched up, so it's only a triangle on the side and not a diamond. Would perfer if they either switched to a calgary style there or got rid of the triangle all-together though.

I don't actually mind the away jerseys, but those home ones? Who spilled the paint and didn't tell anyone?

The homes are sexy as hell.



Those black abominations are a third (thankfully).

I knew as soon as I heard the Isles were coming out with a black uniform that it wouldn't end well. I was right.

Don't see why they had to mess with a good thing. Their regular uniforms are some of the best in the League.

I'm talking about when they wore the classic blue jerseys mixed with a slug helmet and pants. It looked stupid and they never should've done it. There's an image attachment in my original post.

Yes, the black abominations are the ones to which I was referring. It wouldn't be so bad if they looked good on television, but they look even worse there... borderline seizure-inducing.

They should have went with their dark blue jerseys from around 2000 as their alternates:

As much as I hate this sweater, (and as other people have said) it isn't the black's fault... it's the grey. That being said, they have no reason to even have a black alternative in the first place.

In other news, I'm quite thankful Dallas is going away from the abominations they're using now. Diverting away from the design they used in the 90s was almost as stupid as coming up with a black alt. for the Islanders.

The black is a major problem too, in my book. There is little more I despise when it comes to a uniform than a team with black nowhere in its color scheme deciding to wear a black jersey.

I don't mind the wordmark. As a college hockey fan, I'm used to 'em and like to see them on occasion. The number is stupid, but whatever. The black and gray, neither of which belong on an islanders uniform ever, are my problem. And the template- who the fark decided those pointy things and pit stains were a good idea? Yeah, let's highlight the armpit, because that's exactly the area we care about!

Personally I don't think they are any worse than Van's new 3rd jersey, both suck.

I like that Isles fans are very objective about the jerseys of their own fav. team. I agree that their current home/away are in the top 10 of jerseys. Why ruin a good thing with the 3rds? Are they trying to come up with the ugliest (3rd) jerseys in the League? Didn't they learn anything from the Fishstick years? That was arguably among the worst of the third's and now these.

It's all a marketing ploy. It really does look like it's an intentional design attempt to look more like a basketball jersey and that's deplorable.

At least Dallas and Tampa Bay take awards for the worst home and away combo. We only have one crappy jersey.

I agree. Love their normal home/away jerseys, especially the away whites. Hope I never have to see those hideous third jerseys again...

I can't stand them. They seriously look like some kind of knock off jersey you would find at Wal-Mart.

You would think with such gorgeous home and aways, they could do something cool with the 3rds. What a disaster.

I do not like them at all. They are nasty. I do like their home and aways though.

Reminds me a little of the SNES jersey, both of them are horrific. Lots of love for the Isles' home & away. But those alts... *shivers*
