Well, that ship sailed when Dolan decided to renovate.
One thing though: eventually it will have to happen. As much as you rebuild, the infrastructure is still old and the footprint of the Garden relatively small compared to other new arenas. You can only do so much with it.
But, unless a decision to move comes soon, all available land, say along the Hudson will be gone and developed. There will be no place to move to.
So, MSG stays where it is and there is something magical about having an arena in the heart of downtown Manhattan.
Note: I was at the last Ranger game at the old MSG and the first game ever played in the new building. Have not been to the newly renovated building this year (was last year) but it looks like a different place on TV. From someone who had a season ticket in the old blue seats from the year the building opened till 1976, it doesn't seem like the same place. But that's progress and life goes on.
