I'll believe it when it's more than just a Leafs' blogger.

Agreed, won't believe it until it actually happens.

Islanders to Brooklyn. Surprised that something that made so much sense actually happened. Seems like the best of both worlds -- the team gets to move into a real city environment and attract new fans and revenue while the existing fans get to keep their team within striking distance.

And Rangers fans truly get a 3rd home arena.

I'm actually looking to move into an apartment right down near the Barclay's area soon. Going to be interesting having the Islanders next door to me once they end up moving in 2015. Will be nice when the Stars swing their NY trip, being able to go to all 3 of the arenas they visit.

Will they be changing names? I'd hate to see that, but it's not really accurate anymore.

Brooklyn is technically on LI. It's accurate enough to matter.

Ah, never realized it was. Haven't seen a map of the city in so long. They better not change anything besides that horrid 3rd jersey.

Even if the Islanders moved to Manhattan the name could still work. They never specified WHICH island they're representing.

Nice as that may be, it still doesn't fix the fact that Charles Wang is the owner of the team. Maybe if they're lucky he'll just die like Wirtz did and they can start getting their **** together.

At least we won't have to hear Razor complain about Nassau anytime we go there, ever again. Definitely will be looking into going up to Brooklyn the first time we play there.

Interesting! Good for him, I guess.

Armstrong, Hitch...

Also it's probably a move to make sure they get Tarasenko over here. Both have SKA ties.

Maybe teach Sinitsyn a thing or two.

Forgot about Armstrong being there. I'm pretty sure Tarasenko would've come over regardless, but maybe just to ease the transition (did they ever play together in Russia?).

We hired Brett Hull as the ****ing ambassador of fun but we can't hire arguably the best player in Dallas Stars history as a consultant? This greatly upsets me. More Zubov near the Dallas Stars could never be a bad thing.

I have a feeling Turco and Zubov don't like Joe all that much on a professional level atm.

Not giving up on hockey, but the NHL is ****ed. There's absolutely no way the league will ever recover from this lockout. There's just no way.

I really enjoy watching WHL and OHL hockey. AHL hockey is... Emotionless? It certainly doesn't seem like any of the players in that league actually give a **** about their team. Only personal gain, which is fair because they're competing for a big boy spot. Just don't enjoy it anymore.

Bettman is absolutely wrecking this sport beyond recognition. Hockey used to be about playing hard-nosed, quick witted play. The 'clutch and grab era' was the greatest era of this sport bar none. That's hockey. These new rule changes where goalies can't play the puck, more open ice (causing concussions) and the equipment changes have ruined the sport I used to play. 12 year contracts? Wtf? Trade deadline day is an absolute joke now. All of the jerseys across the league look the same. Food quality in ALL of the arenas has reached absolute ****, thanks to corporate contracts.

The leagues TV situation? ****ing pathetic. We used to be able to watch all of the teams across ESPN. Now NBC shows the original six and... The original six.

Teams that shouldn't even be surviving and tanking the league are still up and kicking. ( Dallas will be another PHX if this **** keeps up)

The NHL is dead. It will never return. The joke that comes from this lockout will be a horrible product, and will push people from the sport even more than they already have been.

**** you Gary Bettman. **** you.
