#10: Orange Sleeves

Starting in 2007, the Isles wore jerseys with orange sleeves while the body and shoulders of the jersey were either white or navy blue – in this case, white because that was the away jersey.

The elbow of the jersey was a thick, navy blue stripe with a think, white stripe underneath. The numbers on the back and upper, right chest were navy blue with an orange outline. The name on the jersey copied these numbers.

Differing from the numbers on the back and chest, the numbers on the sleeves were white with a navy blue outline.

Like its predecessor, this jersey had a shoulder patch that was four stripes of alternating color – navy blue and orange on the away jersey to be specific.

Overall, I like these jerseys. But they don’t compare to the original Islanders royal blue and jersey style. Along with that, the team was not very good at the time the jerseys were worn (2007 to 2010).

Due to all of that, my rank for these jerseys is #10 out of 12.

#9: Back To The 1978 Style

As the successor of the dreaded wavey style of the fisherman jersey, these jerseys kept the navy blue of the fisherman but went back to the style of the jersey from 1978 to 1984.

This meant no more waves and the elimination of teal and grey from the color scheme.

Overall navy blue with an orange stripe at the end of the jersey and on the sleeve and a white stripe right on top both orange stripes, this jersey replicated the style of the jersey first used by the Isles in 1978, with the exception of the navy blue instead of the original royal blue.

Additionally, this jersey was the first jersey with the four stripes on the shoulder to honor the Islanders four straight Stanley Cups.

With the Isles trying to go back to their glory days but staying with the navy blue of their darkest days, this jersey belongs at number nine.
