Not sure if this was posted already, but the NYI facebook page is asking fans what they want in a 3rd jersey

quite a few fans posted pics of their ideas. Some interesting ones. I like a few of them









I really like those cream color ones.

Although I hated the fisherman logo, I really liked the jersey of that era. The teal, orange and blue waves across the bottom of the jerseys were original and I like the general color scheme of that jersey as well. I wouldn't mind going back in that direction, with the lighthouse logo for the crest and the original Islander logo on the shoulder.

Why do you need a third jersey? You already have two of the best jerseys in the league. This has disaster written all over it.

Me and my Mike Bossy blue No. 22 jersey just shake our head.

That is the what most isles fans are thinking. Unfortunately the org. said that there will be a new 3rd jersey this year, and all the rumors/leaks point toward a jersey that is black or has black stripes (). Its sad but true.

Can't the same be said for the Penguins?

Isles will have a 3rd jersey because it will make more $ for them. same reason everyone has a 3rd jersey.

Agreed. Personally, I'd prefer if they didn't have a 3rd jersey, but if I had to choose I would go for something like this. The exact fisherman jersey, just substituting the fisherman crest for the Islanders crest. I think that would look pretty cool. Now that I think about it, didn't they try making these? I can't remember.

Most definitely. I hate the Winter Classic look, and the baby blue has run its course too.

Less is more.

i'm amazed at even a small minority being infavor of the wavy fisherman design sans logo

Even if the waves were original they were incredibly ugly. worst jersey ever. the one with the classic logo isn't much better either.

the Fisherman and the altered "Wave-Frankenstein" Jersey that followed were nothing but the darkest days in Isles history, why celebrate that by bringing it back as a 3rd jersey?

they need to keep the team colors, and keep it simple, well for me to buy one anyway

I liked the Lighthouse shoulder patch, and use of teal and silver in the Fishermans..... wasn't a fan of the wave, font or Fisherman logo though. I wouldn't be adverse to a jersey using those colors, without the wave and the Lighthouse patch as the crest.

I don't think they can use the wave anymore anyway with the new jerseys. Something about how they're dyed.

Sublimination. most of the European Jerseys use this technique.
the shirt is usually all the and all the colors are dyed on to it. i think the flames jerseys and the Islanders were the first to use this in the NHL, also the 1st wave of 3rd jerseys

I'm sure if teams like Carolina and Atlanta (rip) can have the detailed stripe designs they have/had then your team could have a wavy line if they wanted it.

Whatever uni you guys hate the most people would vote for it just because they would think its funny.
The Islanders fanbase is more of a community than a fan base. We actually talk to eachother and make friends on the fb page or at meetups. Youd be surprised what a tight Islanders community can pull off.

That's probably true but voting online is open to everyone. Do you know about when the Mets tried that? They got Rickrolled.

I agree on both your points. No need for third for us and I'm not a fan of the baby blue for you guys.

IMO Isles should just take a couple seasons off from doing anything with their jerseys. They just came out with the new (old) white jerseys last season after years of uniform chaos just leave it alone for a little while.
