People, wake up! The move to Brooklyn does nothing for this team in terms of on ice preformance. A new address does not make DiPietro go away, does not give them someone other than Moulson willing to sacrifice in front of the net, it doesn't solve their soft play, hell it doesn't even give them a real NHL coach.

Everyone has to get off this thinking that going to Brooklyn changes things. Until Wang shows some sort of evidence that he is willing to change his operating methods, Brooklyn is gonna be half empty too.
Because Wang owning the Isles in Barclay's makes very little sense beyond the near term. Wang likely wants to move to BK to bump up the franchise value some, and then sell the team. But the BK folks don't want the club while it's still tied to the Coliseum lease, as they want a loss leader for their arena. The sooner this happens, the better for everyone ,except Nassau County.

Brooklyn in and of itself isnt some magic elixir. It's just a signal that Wang's ownership days are numbered.
