Absolutely.

Most of my friends who are Isles or Devils fans hate the Rangers as much (if not more) than they like their own teams. Being able to go to an arena in NYC that isn't owned by Dolan and doesn't cost your firstborn child will be a huge draw, even if Wang doesn't give us a competitive team.

I've seen a lot of people wearing the "Brooklyn" Isles exhibition shirt, even though the game never took place, because there's excitement in the borough for NHL hockey from people who may not be big on basketball. This move won't have to convert Ranger fans. It will create Islander fans.
