I'm agnostic on whether the universe actually gives a shit about all this, but yeah, Cheney roasting in hell would probably convince me. <g>

Isles, Barclay's, Isle fans and the new owners are all looking forward to Isles leaving Barclay's. More importantly, there is an opt out clause after the 4th year and if the Isle's find a home, it will happen sooner. Willets Point, near Citifield, is being spoken of, as a new home for a new stadium.

It has been a disaster.

So you've long predicted ... maybe they should just relocate the team to Quebec City. <g>

The Isle's chose garbage, crap, instead of relocating outside of the NYC and Long Island area. The new owner has bucks and is very open to bringing the Isles back to Queens or Long Island.

It's culture shock for Long Islanders to come to Brooklyn. It will be easier if they move to Queens, which is still NYC, but not as hardcore as Brooklyn. Even I admit that the ushers and CS at Barclay's are SOBs.

I can compromise and accept Queens, near Citifield. Long Island would be tough for me as I don't like the area and most of the people out there.

The Isles players are exhausted because they practice on Long Island but play in Brooklyn. They needed to establish a practice rink in Brooklyn. Moreover, the players live on Long Island and commute early in the morning to Brooklyn on game days, where they have a morning skate and then stay in a hotel. The new owner was a previous owner of the Capitals so he knows the ropes around the NHL.

The Isles are in a much better position to get funding for a new stadium now because they are in NYC now and not Long Island. There will be a lot more support to keep the Isles in the NYC area and you know the NHL powers are not going to allow a NYC team go to Quebec City. Atlanta is one thing, NYC is another. Even the Ranger fans want to keep the Islanders around and that's the predominant NYC fan base. Something will be worked out.

Here's a highly unusual occurrence, a local NY paper with a commentary on the demise of a Canadian hockey team:

Any truth to this story?

Well, I hope it all works out, but I still think they should relocate to Quebec ... and yes, I know it's not going to happen. <g>

Definitely some truth, but it's hard to know what's going on ... if Price's injury isn't career-threatening (I suspect it might be at this point), I figure Subban stays and the coach (and/or the 'team') goes -- Price likes him, and they are the franchise, after all.

otoh, if it is, PK probably goes, especially if the conflict is with the 'team' ...

One thing for sure, though, the fans are behind him at this point, so if that's the case, there might be another riot in Montreal's future this spring. <g/ng>

With no Canadian team likely making the playoffs, you'll be free to root for the Isles beating the Rags in the first round. -g-
