Well, you get to kill the Islanders off forever, so no more need to worry about the franchise being soiled. The Brooklyn Bagadonuts!

Besides, this isn't the same franchise that Pickett had. Wang won't even acknowledge the old guard unless it's to sell tickets in some charade.

Look at it as if Brooklyn bought an expansion team and the Isles folded!

Sounds better than Charles Wang ran the team into the ground, alienated fans, drove attendance to pathetic levels and kept any player from wanting to sign here so he moved to another location to sell bad hockey to an area deep seeded with rival fans, doesn't it?


Either fold the team or keep the jersey and name the same. You don't change the name and keep the privilege of being a four time Cup winning operation after leaving the fanbase's historic locale. That'd be like the Yankees changing their name to the Hartford Yummy Mumsie's and insisting they were the team Ruth played for.....
