Again, the name has history to it (even if it's not the Islanders), and it would probably gather the team a lot of attention reviving the old Brooklyn Americans name, and actually PLAYING in Brooklyn. Plus eventually a 3rd jersey honoring the original Amerks would probably be a BIG seller.

Just wanted to get some thoughts.
Just a small tidbit:

The Isles have a far greater history than the Americans ever had.

Just my take.
