My point is that the larger affluent suburban population of NYC and the number of businesses in LI and NYC area by far dwarf Saskatoon and QC.
With a new/reno building and a decent team, the Isles can certainly be successful there, esp. with the ~$30M cable deal, which will be at least 10x bigger than whatever local cable deal is available in those two centres.
