Maybe so, but its a reach.

Both the New York Jets and Giants moved from New York to play in New Jersey. Both kept NEW YORK in their names despite it being factually wrong and no one is saying a thing about it.

I think the Islanders can move from New York to New York, while factually staying on Long Island, and manage to keep their exact same name (which comes with a ton of valuable history) without anyone outside of these boards making an issue of it.
