Barclays Center Trademarks Two "Brooklyn Hockey" Logos

Heres the first look at what could potentially be a new logo/patch/color scheme for the Isles third uniforms when they move to Brooklyn. They are going to keep their current home and away uniforms but their thirds will be some sort of Brooklyn/Black & White thing to mesh with the Nets and the Barclays design.

It seems a little weird to me to have an entirely different logo for an alternate. A throwback every now and then isnt uncommon, but I think having a steady third jersey that says Brooklyn Hockey and looks nothing like the normal Islanders designs is just a little weird. I dont know why they cant just keep New York Islanders and make a black and white uniform for their thirds, seems like a good compromise.

Ultimately its not the end of the world. I’m sure diehard fans from the Island will have a problem with it. But at the end of the day we talkin bout uniforms. Not the game. Not the game. Uniforms.

PS – What DEFINITELY needs to not happen though is that second option where the B looks exactly like the Bruins logo. Stick with the font that looks just like the Nets. Thats the whole point of having this third logo/uniform anyway, right? Avoid making a logo look exactly like another team that currently plays in the NHL.
