To me the Islanders success has less to do with their fans, or their location. It has everything to do with who is running the team.
Charles Wang doesn't impress me. Garth Snow doesn't impress me. The Islanders scouting department, despite some high picks, is not as good as it needs to be.
Fans will show up if you give them a reason. Unfortunately, the Islanders haven't given people many reasons over the past 20 years.
Success will primarily depend on the Islanders ability to make people believe in them.
