We’re having a lot of fun at the expense of the Islanders and their new third jerseys and, hey, why not? This is the team that brought us the Fisherman sweaters as well as the orange prison jumpsuit/HAZMAT sweaters (thanks to Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters for the latter description) and now they’ve unleashed a new abomination upon the NHL world.
What’s better than us picking on it? Watching guys like Matt Moulson and Kyle Okposo grin and bear it and try to sell us on how much they like it. Standing up for your team comes with a price sometimes and sometimes you have to just wear the latest ugly thing imaginable and say you love it. Enjoy.
Islanders display new third jerseys; What do you think?
The New York Islanders tend to do things their way, for better or worse. Sometimes that means barring journalists from covering their team, other times they blaze a new trail by signing a goalie for 10+ years or making another netminder their general manager. In the case of their latest third jerseys, the Islanders went back in time ever so slightly.
