Isles Players Show Off Jerseys

Single-game tickets for the New York Islanders went on sale yesterday and a couple of Islanders players were on hand to sign autographs. A couple of people who were there and took pictures have emailed them to me to share.



Wade Dubielewicz, Bruno Gervais and Richard Park kept fans occupied while they waited in line for tickets.

All three wore white road jerseys to the event. All of the photos I was sent have been added to the Islanders album in my official Rbk EDGE gallery if you want to see more.

Thanks to Kevin and Dale for the photos!

I'm still not crazy about these jerseys but here's another perspective. Dale said, "I think they do the jersey more
justice on the player than on a hanger."

Fair point.

By the way, if you have or know of any other photos for the Isles or any other team, feel free to email them to me at nhllogos@gmail.com. I'm always looking to expand the photo gallery.

Open a new page, check the old one (white or blue) besides this new one.

This one is waaaay better than the old one.

#34's sleeves look much looser than other rbk edge sweaters, i wonder if goaltenders can get special sizing or something.

The jerseys do look better on a person than a hanger. The seams still get me, they look stiff and rigid.
Just have to wait until they are all out in the stores and I can try them on.

yeah they have to have baggier sleaves cuz golies equipment is just to big for the narrow sleaving. Nike did the same thing with their international slim fitting jerseys, the goalies jerseys are alot different with nike's, so its probably the same thing here

For me, these Rbk sweaters look better day after day.

Can'y wait to try one on me.

Look at the hem at the back of Dubielewicz! That's awful! http://picasaweb.google.com/nhllogos/NewYorkIslanders/photo#5108173719699566146

No matter how many times I see the new jerseys, I'm not going to like them. The old one was a classic and shouldn't have been messed with. I'm pretty disappointed with the Isles' new look.
oh well...

jason...you do realize that dubie is a goalie right? once all his padding is in place its going to pick up all that slack in the rear of the jersey. remember, they are fitted which means they are designed specifically for the type of padding being worn...in his case as a goalie there is a lot more slack needed in certain areas.

i was there that day and personally saw the jerseys as well all ill admit they do look way better off the rack and on a player

Jason said...

Yes, I am aware that he is a goalie. I'm not a goalie or an expert on the subject, but I'm pretty sure most of the padding is at the front. I don't see how that will change the weird coat-tails look he's got going on there, but I hope you're right.

I do like how the horizontal stripes on the bottom hide the coat-tails. Nice touch.
