Hey look, I didn’t forget the New York Islanders! They are actually just ranked in the top 5!

Now am I crazy? I hope not. The Islanders went back to their original design from 1972, when they introduced their current home uniform as the alternate in 2008. It’s a great combination of colors — like the Edmonton Oilers have — with very simple striping. Can’t get much better than this.

I was never really a fan of the logo, until I realized what’s really in it. Long Island, a hockey stick as the letter “Y” and the “I” in “Islanders” points at Nassau Coliseum. It’s actually pretty cool.
