I think its gonna be our road whites but in beige like the article said. I wouldn't mind that at all. If they do it right, it could look awesome.

Let's hope the people who designed our currents 3rds aren't doing these.

There's some folks good at photoshop here, anyone care to design the beige?

I think an orange jersey would be cool if done right, or they could always bring back fishermans!

Which I think means the famous Asham afro jersey.

Which to be honest I don't like because orange/yellow lettering on a darker jersey doesn't work without some serious white borders.

Snow was also asked about whether the Islanders' regular uniforms would change when the club moves to Brooklyn to play at the Barclays Center in the next couple years.

"I'm not gonna get into the whole Brooklyn situation," Snow said. "To my knowledge, it'll be all the same jerseys and colors. Will there be a new third jersey? Probably."
Not a surprise since it's not very popular and Yormark's pushing for a jersey change.

I still think those orange 3rd jerseys were awesome! That's how a real 3rd jersey should be done, not the hideous black ones we have now.

I'm with you on that. The blue helmets that they wore with the jersey's helped.

i'm sure it'll just be beige. which will be fine.

our jersey doesn't lend itself well to a "retro" look because it already is a retro look.

We'll technically be the "home team" in the game, so I'm guessing this won't be the case. It'll likely be our current home jerseys with a slight modification.

I'm assuming since it will be considered an Isles "home" game, that they'll where a "darker" jersey. At least, outside of the Buffalo-Pens outdoor game, that's how it's been.

If that's the case, I would just get it as close to the 1972 blue jersey as possible, even if it's very close to the current blue jersey. Although, I'm assuming the nameplates have to be on the back. But the numbers were bigger and thinner...



The stitching of the logo was never the same also, if I recall.

Either that, or I'd go with the later style that we won the Cups with and had up until 95:

We will be the home team. So I'm betting the Royal Blue with Orange #'s.

The Rag$ can wear the stupid Vintage White.

I Understand that the team wants to sell more jerseys for more money, but if im paying a lot of money to go see the Islanders at yankee stadium in the winter, I want to see Islander jerseys. To me, that would be the whole point. Looking at the Islander jerseys playing in yankee stadium. Otherwise its just watching some team called the Islanders, on their way to another bad season...

I would be thrilled if the Isles can do something like the Wild and Sabres third jersys. Replace the script "Minnesota" with "Islanders" and have the main color to a similar color on from Buffalo's thirds. Then have orange stripes with a cream white outlining it with hockey lace neck tie.

I think it's going to be close to the uni's the Islanders started out with back in 72-73, which would be fine with me.
