Number 4: The Wave

Oh the 90’s what a time to be alive. It was cool to have these wacky looking jerseys. These alternates lasted from 1996 to 1998, but they are more popular now for being “retro”. These wave jerseys are more known for the fisherman logo.

Although at the time the fans hated the fisherman logo so the Islanders slapped the big old Islanders crest on the center and called it a day.

I’m a sucker for 90’s apparel so I think these look pretty cool, but the fans at the time wanted the original threads back. You can’t look at these jerseys and not picture Ziggy Palffy. When you walk around the Barclays center and see a wave jersey nine times out of ten if there is a players name on the back of it, it’s Palffy.

Although at the time these weren’t well liked, similarly to fine wine these jerseys get better with age. Which is why they come in at number four on the rankings.
