'72-73 Vintage Jersey

Before the beginning of the 2007-08 season, the NHL decided to make a league wide change in Uniforms. The league partnered with Rbk Hockey to design a new system and the teams were all given a variety of templates to choose from. Because of the league wide change, 3rd Jerseys, alternates, special occasions were banned for 1 season. Well, they're back and the Isles are one of 17 teams that will wear a 3rd Jersey again. It has been widely speculated that the Isles would return to the beginning and don the same Uni's that Eddie Westfall wore. Howard Berger of has made it somewhat official. He claims that he has been given a glimpse of all the Jerseys and has described them for all interested parties.

While the decision seems to be the right one, it's also very telling of a new beginning for the franchise, starting from scratch with hopes of something great.
