When this is the best thing you can say you know you've made a horrible jersey. A part of me just does not get how this organization can make such a stupid move but then I remember all the other stupid moves they've done. What a joke this franchise has become. Thanks Charles Wang.

Hopefully I can come to a game when they're wearing them in December so I can start an "UG-LY JER-SEYS" chant.

Thanks for answering, really curious. I am thinking blue helmets too, I just feel black would look better, I feel the Blue helmets and black jerseys will look a little weird.

Regardless, I find it silly that people get this heated over a damn alternate jersey that will be worn 10 times. I mean there are bigger things to worry about. I could care less what they wear, it's the least of their worries

Why would you want a jersey that you don't even like? Is it cos youre collectors and you just need to have anything with an Islander logo on it? Just genuinely curious.

They'll try again in 2014.

Ugliest jersey ever. Probably won't watch the games that they wear them. Thankfully they told us when they will wear them. I usually get tickets for Christmas, I'll make sure it's not one of those games.

I think thats a little overboard man, I mean it's a jersey. For you specifically to go out of your way to not watch the game because they are wearing it is really silly.

Not only are these jerseys awful, but if you are brave or visually impaired and buy one, you need to make sure you buy a numbered jersey, or the front will look practically blank.

Ok, good news. They're wearing black pants (and I assume black helmets) with it

Just saw that on the site. Really hoping the helmets are black. I was sure they'd make the pants blue for whatever reason.

Does this mean in 2 years these jerseys will become the Islanders regular home jerseys and the road jerseys will be this design and color scheme in white?

I don't see any side or back views. I assume the numbers are orange.

Just curious as to why you would even think that?

These are a cash grab nothing more, nothing less.

And yes they're as ugly as I thought they would be.

OK the whole ensemble makes it look a little better.

If I were to buy the jersey (a big if). I'd customize it with Tavares (so people don't laugh at me too hard).

I actually like these a lot better with the rest of the gear involved. The helmets have to be black as well.

They'll probably wear blue. And it'll be ugly. Coyote ugly.

Hey, why not pink and purple polka dots? I mean, there are more important things to worry about and it's only an alternate jersey that will be worn 10 times a year, why not appeal to a demographic that we've really been missing -- 5 year girls!

Let me explain, this team and organization have sucked donkey nuts for the better part of 18 years. During that run of epic failure, they've additionally managed to kick the fanbase in the nuts countless times (Spano, Fishsticks, Luongo, Chara, Gang of Four, etc, etc), yet I'm still here on a day off in the middle of the week on page six of a thread discussing the unveiling date (not counting the other threads that discussed the jersey and the rumors beforehand). To put it another way, you're probably telling the wrong of group people that they shouldn't care about this or any other aspect of this organization.

Now as for the jersey itself -- it's fugly. And poorly designed. By someone's nephew. With a pack of Crayola's.

The only positive I can come up with is that they're really in tuned to a hot trend out there -- circa 1995.

You know what, the more I think, the more I realize that a jersey and your team colors are supposed to represent your brand and it's identity -- so judging by these, maybe they hit the ****ing nail on the head.

I like them more as a uniform also. they'd probably look better with black orange & silver/gray gloves.

still not a fan, but they look better as a uniform then the jersey itself.

edit: and now I see they're with the blue helmets & it's just horrible.
