Is Brooklyn Our Only Real Option?
All of these facts during this tough economic time makes Brooklyn look like the last hope for the Islanders staying in New York. We already know Marty Markowitz has talked to Charles Wang trying to convince him to bring the Islanders to Kings County. We also know that Bruce Ratner and Brett Yorkman met with the NHL to talk about the arena. Brooklyn is willing and able to support the Islanders, so if Gary Bettman testimony during the Coyotes bankruptcy case was true the Isles should never relocate off the island. However, with each passing day without new news Brooklyn looks less and less like a safety net and more like the Islanders only option.
