The Islanders would be foolish not to embrace the fact that come 2015, they will be an NHL franchise based in NYC. For all intents & purposes a large market team. Sure there's plenty of people in Nassau/Suffolk, but this isn't even about a # of people. It's New York City, and Long Island will never compare. Hell, we're actually going to have media besides Newsday, Islanders TV & Islanderspointblank going to our games now. Imagine that, picking up the NY Post and there's actually an article about the Isles. Imagine the Isles actually win the Stanley Cup one year. The parade isn't going to be down Hempstead Turnpike ending up in the concrete oasis that is the NVMC parking lot. It will be either in Manhattan or through Brooklyn.

The organization absolutely should alter the logo to show where they actually play.
Bingo. Can't wait for the first ad with Tavares face all over NYC. He'll get the attention he deserves. Real media coverage and getting treated like a real NY pro team will be a blessing!
