No.

Hope it works out in Brooklyn.
Appreciate it, always nice to see that some people still respect the history the Islanders have. I'm really happy with the move, it was time to turn a chapter and move on very clearly. Nassau would have been great, but the organization and the fans can't hold on any longer to something that has been a curse for a long time now. I'm excited for a fresh start in Brooklyn and at least having the security that my team is going nowhere. Sucking AND having to fear your team moving was the worst combination, at least now we can potentially suck and not have to worry about going anywhere
