so it doesn't look like the Islanders are staying there.
But if fans don't want to go to Brooklyn, would they rather see them go to Canada instead?
I'd hate to seem them go, as they are a uniquely Long Island team. In Brooklyn, they are just ANOTHER NYC team. The Devils are also a NY metro team. How many locations have three hockey teams? Hockey isn't even hugely popular to support so many teams. At least as it is now, it's a "Long Island" team. To have the Rangers in Manhattan, and the Islanders a stone throw away in Brooklyn, with the Devils also so nearby is almost absurd.
