Great move going to Brooklyn, but the arena was made for basketball, so maybe not the best setup for a hockey rink. The NCC is a bit of a dump, but the place has pretty good atmosphere when the team is good, and reminds me of the old Garden with the distance of the seats from the ice.
For an expansion team, the original sweaters are fine. And their mystique is enhanced by four Cups. I remember how great those teams were, and respect the jersey for that reason. Heck, even Avalanche j's look better in light of a Cup or two. Understand, too, "all the good colors" had been taken by then.
If you really want to go after the Isles, look no further than the Gorton Fisherman experiment. That was California Golden Seals territory, sans the white skates.
