But a "NY Islanders" jersey? Not so much...It's just a different vibe entirely.

Anyway, if there's one thing we know about NHL owners, is that they can smell incremental revenue. If Wang thinks he'll make more money switching the name to "Brooklyn", he'll do it.
The NHL insisted on keeping the name NY Islanders they said Wednesday.
