Hand picked from the crap that was offered to him. We all know Wang's no graphic artist.

Doesn't this type of thing go through the head of Islanders Marketing? The guy who was featured on ITV when the first Reebok Jersey came out?

I believe I met him at the new Isles Team Store and thought he was a nice guy. However, he failed on this one.

Terry Goldstein is the guy you're thinking of, and he is a good guy....I was told they gave Wang about 12 designs to choose from....he chose that one. Its done through retail and merchandise operations.

This organization continues to re-define "disgraceful".

They'd have blown off another big toe if they had more than the 10 that are already missing.

I'm hoping the leaked jersey turns out to be a fake and the one being unveiled on the 16th is totally different.

And leave them to their ordinary responsibilities of scouting, player development, and special assistants to the GM.

It took 16 years to finally get our proper jerseys back, and only one to **** it all up again...

Too bad it couldn't come to a fan vote. But that would kill the suspense or ruin the fun in it all.

I wanted the inception jersey with the Orange Numbers, no Name Plates as our 3rd. Too bad.

Just came across this old video. I hope they do it again explaining the reasoning behind this year's 3rd jersey.

If we had to go with a dark colored theme couldn't we have somehow tied it into long island? A sunset in october on long island? black, purple and orange. something with a lighthouse, ANYTHING RELEVANT.

The colors aren't an issue with me.

That stupid wordmark is pathetic. It's boring, lacks creativity, and screams laziness.

We need an alternate logo. We have a very cool and unique identity, and the only secondary logo we have had was the lighthouse logo, which was pretty cool.

We need something else, and this could have worked for that.

But instead we end up with this crap.

Again, colors are no issue. The stupid copycat wordmark that looks like a damn basketball jersey is what pisses me off.

I emailed the team. Not that it matters, but whatever.

The wordmark jerseys are the only ones worse than the new Lightning jerseys.

I keep having this false sense of security we were not around that area, I think a few good wins mixed in with alot of disappointment had me feeling we are not that bad...but alas we are.

CBJ get Carter back soon. 30th here we come

Terry Goldstein is a very good man! He was my very first boss when I was about 17 or 18 when I worked at The Sports Authority in Massapequa Park. He's a good man.

The jersey could still be ugly though

Not that I'd particularly be in favor of this idea either, but if they insisted on a wordmark, then it would have been so much nicer if they went with the script logo they use on their helmets. Or a different more stylized script logo similar to what the Wild use on their 3rds. This cheesy block lettering looks like it was the default font in Photoshop.

LOL. He was the store manager at the Sports Authority I used to work at during college.
