Islanders to get new 3rd jersey

Here we go again...

Reebok is indicating a brand new third jersey for the Islanders — which will probably ruin everything now that they've finally gotten it right.

****, this is the last thing this team needs. But you know how businesses go they need to keep making that money. I can only hope that it just doesn't look like crap and is similiar to what they have now.

My guess is that it's just the retro with orange lettering.

It's gonna be the triumphant return of Fishsticks The new generation of Isles fans need to experience his epicness.

All joking aside, I did really dig those lighthouse patches.

Im hoping they keep the retro look...but from a marketing stand point it could be good....i agree those Light house patches are pretty cool....like Rolie mask from last year.....or they could make the jersey with no crest and have it say Long Island across......I have a gut feeling we might see more orange......or a safe bet would be that PIT baby blue color(every team seems to be doing that).......also the article said its not 100% until the NHL or the Team says that its Happening....

well the team did say that it's happening.

Remember an article from the offseason where they were talking about the new white jersey. they also mentioned the camo jersey the NYI used for warmup for Military Appreciation night. In that article they also talked about a new 3rd jersey for next season.

I've been seeing a lot of hats and shirts lately with royal blue as the main color with heavy amounts of gray and orange as accents. The combination isn't bad, if they can put together a pattern that isn't horribly gaudy.

seeing as how the team may be leaving Long Island in the near future - here is an opportunity to honor the heritage of the Islanders - model the Jersey on the Long Island Ducks design. and although we all love the movie Slapshot - It should be the EHL Ducks Jersey, not the jersey from the movie. I saw a number of different designs with a quick web search.

Meh, I don't want to see anything with red in it. or anything that says Long Island/Islanders on an angle across the front ala the Rags.

The practice Jerseys that I've seen I've really liked. I like the simple design of them. Not too flashy but gives em nice lines and shape. I'd rather get one of those than the cheezy third jersey's that I've seen. I think the NHL is stuck in the mid 90's and think folks still by those awful Starter jackets.

I think it will just have a lot more orange in it, like someone said earlier the real retro jerseys with orange lettering and numbers. That would make the most sense imo.

Still wouldn't mind orange as long as they kept it simple (like with the current pattern). A blast from my photochoppin' past:

That's too much Orange... I like the simplicity of it though. No need for patterns and such. I would like to see something with a lighthouse in it.

Hockey would be better off if Reebok went back to running shoes.

I didn't really like the design of the old 3rds, so I hope they don't go back to them.

I do really like that Lighthouse concept that has been floating around on here, just keep sending that to them and maybe they'll get the hint

Threw together a sketch of a Ducks tribute jersey. I think with some finessing, it could work.

I dont like nicknames of the team name. Just seems tacky.

Id rather a solid orange band, and possibly the hem of the sleeves white. I like ISLES better than the lighthouse idea.

How about the Chico Resch mask, where he broke apart the Isles crest and changed the color scheme? Go with a Royal Blue Jersey and Orange Lettering.

It might look like a puzzle though...
