Now there is a picture of Grabner on their website, he's definitely wearing a blue helmet. I thought black would have looked much better. Only thing I can think of is maybe they didn't get the Black helmets for each player in the manufacturer that they wear in games yet. But it's probably a stretch.

As a full uniform, these jerseys look a lot better than I thought they would. I don't love them, but these aren't bad enough to get me agitated. The team's on-ice performance does that enough.

Sadly, the reason they have blue helmets and the same colored gloves is because Wang is so cheap he won't order a 3rd set of equipment. :

Black is probably a great color for them and all of us to mourn what was once a proud franchise. Just another idiotic, misguided move that is icing on a ridiculous cake.

They look a little better as a complete uniform, but they still suck.

I don't know how we can go from our beautiful home and aways to this ****. Honestly how do Islanders staff not realize that they're ugly? Morons.

“We view this (Third Jersey) as just a fun, alternative jersey,” Goldstein said. “With our white and our blue jerseys we look back at our history, and with the black jerseys, we’re looking forward.”

That is from Terry Goldstein of the NYIs.

So I guess the future is a funeral for the franchise right —*because that is exactly what they look like they are dressed to go to — a funeral.

Without a doubt, the ugliest jersey in NHL history. Worse then the Orange and Yellow and Black the Cannucks used to wear. Far worse then the classic purple and gold Kings uniform. The Fisherman jersey was a design gem compared to this abortion.

I would hope that no self respecting Islander fan would purchase such a debacle. This is the chance to send the message to the team....

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 agree on one hand we have bigger issues then the jersey. Frankly, if they pulled a Lady Gaga and wore beef on the ice and were winning, no one would care all that much.

I made my peace and stated my displease throughout the summer when this garbage was leaked, and again today.

Its over. Lets get to whats really needed — a second line center and #1 defenseman.

The sad thing is that as bad as these are just a little bit of nuance would have saved them.

Had they wrote "Long Island" across the breasts in generic lettering I'd kind of liked it and maybe even bought it...

but no.

just no.

Where is Keenan when we need him??? He had the smarts to veto that one, why can't Snow, wait..... never mind. He'd have to have his lips off Charles a$$ to say something negative about the new black abominations.

the article on the Isles website says that this is 1 of 9 designs they were deciding between. Can you imagine if this is the best design.

I was just made aware of this. The Rangers tried something like this over 50 years ago.

If we were winning right now, no one would give a rats behind what the jersey looked like.

I disagree. Winning or losing, that jersey is a joke. Just like the BOLTS & SENS unis. At least those involved the teams primary colors.

No it's not like them. Bolts, Sens, Flames, Stars, there have been way way worse jerseys than this one.

It's all part of the giant of package of suck that is this franchise. The reason the Isles lose is because of bad decisions... the reason the jersey is terrible is because of bad decisions.

The Isles need to stop making bad decisions.

I disagree

there probably wouldn't be the poisonous hatred about how "org sucks, never get anything right etc." but I'm sure a lot of us would be damning this jersey even if we were a cup contender. It's a pretty awful jersey.
