This is basically why ESPN, or any other major media outlet that half-heartedly covers hockey just plain blow. As its been said before, if any prominent team (Bruins, Caps) released a similar jersey, it wouldn't stir up nearly the amount of ire that the Isle's new third jerseys have. These jerseys are pretty crappy but it is just insane even mentioning them in the same breath as those horrendous ducks jerseys. Worst of all time? Really? At the end of the day it is just a basic color scheme with no crazy designs or cartoons (or fishermen).
I guess it comes with the territory when your team dissapoints year after year, but its a shame ESPN automatically associates anything ISLANDER with a punchline.
