Finally, the Islanders should not forget where they came from. I love that they are already doing school assemblies in Brooklyn to introduce the team to local kids, but that doesn't mean the assemblies, youth clinics, and other very important charitable activities in Nassau and Suffolk should be lost. It would be a crying shame if this move also separated youth hockey players on Long Island from what was an amazing engine for its growth. The Islanders won 4 Stanley Cups on Long Island, and they can't forget that any more than those of us who are no longer living in the area can deny where we came from. Don't blame the local fan base for what politicians did.
This was the first time the islanders ventured into brooklyn schools and long islanders like nick are already crying foul? face it nick. your beloved long island turned their collective backs on the ny islanders. i totally agree that the islanders should not forget the long island schools. but you need to relax and stop whining because this was the first time the islanders went to brooklyn schools.
