It wasn't long ago when this attachment was thrown my way:
My reaction was... well... YUCK!
Before believing that Charles Wang had this baby lined up as the next jersey of the New York Islanders when the league-wide "tight fit" jerseys come into play next season I gave it some thought. The #79 right there was my hint that this may have a previous concept jersey but shoved aside. Had it been a serious current
contender, I doubt they would've had them made with Alexei Yashin's name and number.
Anyway, that image got me thinking. If I could design the next Islanders' jersey... what would it look like? I cracked open Photoshop and gave it a shot. I know it's low quality and choppy, but you get the overall idea.
I know many Isles fans will be unhappy with my logo from the Fishstick Era. I've always liked the Lighthouse logo and I modernized it's colors a bit to fit the team now more.
