New York Islanders finally release alternate jerseys from their holding cell.

The New York Islanders are finally freed from the penitentiary known as the Nassau Memorial Coliseum, and will soon begin their first season at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

What better way to commemorate one’s release from prison than with these new third jerseys?

The Islanders posted a photo gallery of the new look on their website. No matter which way you look at it, you can’t escape the sense of … escape.

These teams are the ones that fascinate me the most. What is it that keeps some teams at the bottom for decades or causes them to choke whenever an opportunity comes along? There are many teams that could take the top prize of the worst in the NHL, but I’ve narrowed it down to a few.

The Rick DiPietro-Islanders saga is far from over. What’s next?

Rick DiPietro

The struggling New York Islanders were certain to get schooled Saturday night by the defending champion Boston Bruins, and Rick DiPietro had an unlikely opportunity to make a statement. Somehow DiPietro was the only healthy Islanders goalie that night; usually it’s the other way around.

So the first overall pick of the 2000 entry draft set up shop in the crease. As expected, the Bruins completely dominated the neutral zone and, in turn, dominated puck possession.
