Go to any rink in Long Island. People wearing Ranger Merchandise out numbers Islander Merchandiser 2:1.
I have been to 2 parties in Long Island over the summer talking hockey to people, very few were Islander fans.
The majority of the long Island population could give a rats ass about the Isles
Brooklyn is our best hope
You have to put a winning product on the ice. OTH and I may not agree on much, but you have to win to ***** in seats unless you're in Toronto. 20+ years of mostly losing tries the patience of paying customers.
If you win, with a new building to cash in the extra bodies, Nassau works. If you in and own the team in Brooklyn, it works. Losing in either place won't work. Renting in Brooklyn doesn't work. Paying out of pocket to renovate the Coli doesn't work.
