Whereas Marty Markowitz will show up at a press conference for a free knish, Mayor King Bloomy does not show up unless it is important. This doesn't settle whether it is temporary, but it is *at least* temporary.

I just can't believe it!!!!

I truly think this gives the Islanders the opportunity to get into a market that will give them the financial means to return to prominence.

I am cautiously optimistic about this.

1. If it is about the Isles moving to Brooklyn, I don't know how excited I will be because I have not seen a hockey game at Barclays and I don't know how the site lines will be. Also, can/will the Isles break their lease?

2. Is it possible that Ratner is purchasing the team? If so this also worries me because then they would be stuck in Brooklyn most likely. But hey at least Wang wouldn't be running the show.

3. I have no idea what else it could be besides the first two options which both rely on the Isles moving to Brooklyn. I have a friend who works at Barclays and he is there today. I will post any update if I hear something from him.

Also, does anyone know if the Isles will be streaming the press conference?

I want to wait until the event actually happens but after seeing the channel 7 tweet I'm having a hard time controlling myself. I'm seriously so happy I'm about to cry.

OMG, who cares? They could change their name to the Brooklyn Soda Jerks for all I care, as long as they stay in the area.

The sight lines will be fine. Saw a concert there in the nosebleeds and you're so on top of the action on the floor as the building was built straight up. They did an incredible job.

Gotta figure if NYI moves permanent, the end zone will be renovated too.

This is exploding all over the internets right now. Moving in after lease expires. I think this is it. I'm so glad they're staying local.

Ratner and crew

Since we're moving to Brooklyn, change the jersey/logo up but still keep the "New York Islanders" as the team name.

Congratulations from the Rangers board -- however, since Bettman will be attending this news conference, can we all go storm the Barclays Center

I might be in the minority here, but I wouldn't be bothered by a name change to Brooklyn Isles. As long as they keep the 'Islanders' and 'NY' and the colors...and add an awesome looking Brooklyn shoulder patch...frankly, I wouldn't care if you called them the Flatbush Isles (ok, I would )

What are the chances the team is sold? This is very exciting.

It's over guys. It's finally over. We have an arena and we will be in New York for the long term.

Let those words sink in for a bit.
