4. The two arenas are approx. 25 minute trip apart.

So, yeah, baby, it does.

Only prob is that MSG Network is could completely bury our games. I mean, seriously. I hope that they come up with a deal for YES to buy out rights to the Islanders.

Hell it'll intensify the rivalry with the Devils too. Lots of NJ transplants (mostly hipsters) in Park Slope/Williamsburg and that immediate area. As far as PATH train/Subway it took me and the GF a half hour to get to Brooklyn for a comedy show a few weeks ago. Will be VERY easy for the Rangers/ Devils/ Isles fans to get to each other's arenas... It will be pretty cool and intense.
