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.
You are correct its up to Wang.

What a lot of us (myself included) are hoping for is that the reason Wang is not spending now is that it is simply not possible to turn a profit in Nassau no matter how many games are sold out or how far into the playoffs sellouts are extended.

With the additional corporate revenue available in Brooklyn the hope is that Wang will start to inject capital into a business that can turn finally turn a profit (or at least break even)

The second hope is that Wang did what he said he would do and kept the team in NY and now feels he can sell the team. (And Brooklyn helps him get a better price)

Brooklyn is only 50% of the solution.

But you have to get half way there before you can finish.
