Islanders New Reverse Retro Jersey?
By Glenn Brewer
The love and hate relationship between Islanders fans and the “fisherman” logo and jersey will live on forever. The recent news that Adidas and the NHL will be returning the reverse retro jerseys has sparked debate for all the NHL teams, but the Islanders in particular.
It has been reported that the Islanders will indeed include the “fisherman” concept to the upcoming reverse retro brand. This made a ton of sense as the Islanders, themselves, were starting to push the logo more on merchandise.
It has been a long time since the dreadful days of the introduction to the logo and jersey.
However, like many cases, would the logo and jersey be better received if the team was playing well in them? It was a sad time for Islanders hockey that happened to coincide with the change from the classic log and jersey to the new, wild transition.
It has been recently reported by Icethletics that the new Islanders reverse retro will only have a blue and orange color scheme in the ‘fisherman” logo. The original logo included a teal color that stuck out on the jersey.
It would be an interesting concept to see the logo in the original and current colors of orange and blue. The rumors seem to be that the navy blue will stay with just the orange color.
Whether you love or hate the logo, it is a part of the Islanders history. Adidas has made it a habit and focus to bring back the history of each organization, even if it is from prior relocations.
