Bridgeport would've bben long gone had the Islanders not bought them from the estate of Roy Boe, who, as you recall had to sell Worcester to begin with, and remember what hapened there....
ABSOLUTELY you will not see the B-Sens leave, I think some of you are confusing the B-Sens w/ the rumored Binghamton Mets move to Ottawa.
I am not confusing anything Chris. Saw it on their fan page on Facebook about a month+ ago first mentioned. I know a fan here who knows Tom Mitchell well enough. So it's a combination of different people where i've heard this from.
Senators deal in Ottawa is up this spring.
