Albany TImes Union article on July 8th, 1990 reports the Capital District Islanders as the old Boston Braves franchise:

At the AHL's Board of Governors meeting in Bermuda two weeks ago, Cantanucci made a formal presentation and subsequently received unanimous approval to purchase the league's dormant Boston Braves franchise. According to Anziano, it was more than a matter of rubber- stamping Troy's application. The board had to be impressed, and it was.


"I thought it was one of the most outstanding presentations I've ever seen," Anziano said, "and I've been witnessing presentations for 23 years."
