Last year of the "black plague"?

So I know I read somewhere that you have to have a jersey a minimum of 2 seasons per reebok rules....well this is year 2 of those horrid third jerseys. Anyone else think those things get tossed following this season? To be honest, I would rather have an orange jersey that looks identical to the home and away jerseys, just substitute the main base color with orange, and make the orange stripes blue. IMO looks a billion times better than those wanna be mets jerseys lol. Maybe have a variation of the logo. I had an isles hat years ago that just had Long Island on it with the big NY on it right over the island....I wish I still had it I'd take a picture of it.

I would expect them to stick around until the move, then be replaced my some kind if Brooklyn themed 3rd.

If I had to guess I would say 2nd or 3rd year in BK.

Last year in the NVMC there will be a 'Final Season' Patch
1st year in BK there will be an 'Inaugural Season' Patch

If I had to guess, I'd say the black jerseys will be our Brooklyn 3rds, but they'll replace the word Islanders with Brooklyn & call it a day. It just seems like something we'd do.

At first read, I thought you were talking about the last several years of Islanders hockey!!

A black Isles jersey could have worked and I was hopeful when the move was announced. The result, of course not. Horrible. Way too busy. But if it was kept simple, I wouldn't have minded.

I'll be happy if the current black monster goes away after this year, and we introduce a 3rd for the first year in Brooklyn.

Didn't Howie and Butch rip on the jerseys a few weeks back and even mention how the fans and even players hate them? I also think it's pretty well known among Isles management that the jerseys are not popular at all.

I dunno, I think we will have seen the end of the black death this season. Then, they'll just wait until Brooklyn to get a new third jersey. Just a guess.

Yeah I noticed that too. Seems like every time the isles wear their 3rd jerseys, Howie and Butch always take little jabs at it...it's great

pretty sure the contract between reebok and the nhl states any new design has a minimum cycle of 3 years, unfortunately.
