As announced Wednesday, the New York Islanders will relocate to Brooklyn for the 2015-16 season. Signing a 25-year lease with the Barclays Center, owner Charles will reportedly retain 100 percent ownership of the club.As suggested by the above video, I think becoming the Brooklyn Islanders will only help the team become successful again. Let's not start talking, the rebirth of the dynasty, but let's say a little bit more consistent playoff success. Good to see a classic franchise get back on the right track. It is an exciting time for New York sports. the Islanders will be a fixture in New York for a long time because of this new deal!

THAT DIDN'T TAKE LONG
It didn't take long for an entrepreneur to cash in on the announcement about professional hockey coming to Brooklyn . Shortly after the New York Islanders announced their relocation from Long Island to Brooklyn, T-shirts went on sale online for fans who can't wait until 2015 for the team to take up residence in the Barclays Center. The tees — feature two crossed hockey...
Brooklyn is back, or is it? After going 54 years without a pro team, the borough of churches now can claim two. Ok, maybe not officially until 2015, but pro sports will be a big part of Brooklyn’s culture for the first time since Willie, Mickey and the Duke were New York icons.
The Islanders join the Nets at the spanking new Barclays Center. I have expressed doubt the Nets can...
You’d be hard pressed to find someone who fawns over Nassau Coliseum in its current condition. It’s old, it smells funny, it leaks – it needs to be renovated from the top to the bottom and back up again. Islanders owner Charles Wang should move the team to a new building that’s deserving of a modern NHL franchise. What was good in the 70s and 80s isn’t good in the 2010s...
#Isles #NYR Rangers were aware of the Isles move to Brooklyn and apparently had no issue with it.

... Why would the Rangers have an issue with it? Now this will give them 3 areans for their fans to sell out.
I also filmed a YouTube video sharing my thoughts on the Isles move to Brooklyn. With the right moves, development...

Thursday night hockey sorry did not get a cute headline as only 3 games played involving New York Islander and New York Ranger prospects. The results were simple 2 butt kickings and a failure to finish off the other guy.

While the East Coast was bracing for Sandy, New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects were making noise with their play. Our stars of the night made their points count in helping their team win.

The best thing about covering the prospects is getting to watch them as they work their way up the ladder...
The New York Islanders, starting in 2015, will be calling the Barclays Center their home. Can anybody say, “Brooklyn we did it”? This move definitely solidifies the arena as a staple not only in Brooklyn but New York.
The claim for best arena in New York is seemingly up for grabs. The Islanders could catch a couple of gems in the draft and find themselves in a great position...
NEW YORK (AP) NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman still hasn't heard what he wants from the players' association, so he won't return to the bargaining table and he won't play a full hockey season.
With only one day remaining before the league's self-imposed deadline to reach a deal that would ensure an 82-game season, Bettman revealed Wednesday that he has given up...
Every time you think you've seen it all in terms of NHL Bizarre, it gets Trumped.
Not by the Donald, but by The Commish, Gary Bettman.
There are two ways to view Wednesday's stunning announcement that the New York Islanders were bolting Nassau County for Brooklyn.
One, is to see it as "positive" news during what has become the league's third shutdown...
