Why would I be bitter?

Being a hockey fan in New York, I know the sport isn't popular here. I want all teams to succeed with fans but I don't see this working. New York does not have enough interest to support three teams.

They get a chance to the Rangers 3-4 more time per season.
There are a ton of Islanders fans who work in Manhattan, Queens, Jersey, etc. Makes it even easier.

A train ride isn't going to stop people from attending games. It might keep out the kiddies which is an added bonus imo.

So...

Isles move to Brooklyn.
There's still an audience for hockey in Nassau and especially Suffolk.
There's an open arena.
Do the Rangers move the Whale to Long Island and try and snap up the fans left behind with lower-priced hockey?
Or do the Islanders move the SoundTigers to Long Island for continuity and to solidify the area?

I'm not familiar with the area at all (been lots of place but not NYC) but this should be good for the team right?

The Isles really only have fans on the Island. Unless they make tens of thousands of new fans a move to Brooklyn isn't going to do anything. There's barely enough support for one team in the NYC area.

I see the Isles moving out of Brooklyn in a decade.
Brooklyn is transplant country. Lots of people have NO hockey affiliation. No reason not to market hockey to affluent minorities. And lots of Russians.

All they have to do is win.

The only part of NYC on the mainland is the Bronx.

I'm sure that a new team in Brooklyn will generate fans there, I'm really not all that concerned about that. We are going to be the new and shiny thing in town, people are going to jump ship just like with the Nets.

Dumb move by the NHL. Since the Nets move/rebranding practically anything with Brooklyn on it flies off the shelves.

Have to think the mood in Brooklyn leading up to the Nets season played a role in getting the Isles to make the move. People love the arena, the Jay Z concerts were incredible and there's a ton of anticipation for the Nets' season.

People forget Brooklyn alone has 2.5 million people. There are plenty of Rangers fans (like myself) but more than enough other potential fans to complement the existing Isles fans and fill the place.

Lol. I joke around with my friends that we should return to this logo all the time. Heck, if they won with it on, I wouldn't mind.

It already reads New York Islanders (NHL) (2015) on the Barclays Center's wiki page.

Uhhh... The Islanders were filling the building when they were successful. Now they have an awesome arena that is accessible by tons of mass transit options.

The Devils still draw 15,000+ every season and sell out every playoff game. They have one of the best TV deals in the business and are in the top half of the league in TV viewership. Financially the arena deal is making things difficult... but it was also reported by Forbes that without the construction debt, the Devils are in the black and profitable.

The Rangers are fine.

You have no idea what you're talking about.

Probably someone that was looking forward to doing the "Kansas City!" chants at games and is sorely disappointed.

I wouldn't say that. There are certain areas that have Russians but the borough is NOT mostly Russian.

Why do Rangers fans care about this?

I'd much rather a team stay in NY than go to freakin Kansas City or something.

Nassau Veterans Coliseum is on the same geographic land mass as Brooklyn - Long Island. Native NY'ers however do not refer to Brooklyn and Queens as part of long island.

@ChrisBottaNHL: Still no confirmation #Isles move to Brooklyn in 2015 is PERMANENT relocation. Could be some news (and spin) at presser.

If you read my post, I said I wanted the Islanders to stay. But they aren't going to get enough fans in Brooklyn.

And to the Devils fan, take off the rose-colored goggles. Nobody watches the Devils on TV and they have always struggled with attendance.
I know that the majority want us to stay, but there is still a select few out there who wanted us to move out of spite and I've seen it on these very forums.

This is admittadely coming from an ignorant position in terms of the area but couldn't they park the same place the basketball fans park?
