Bettman In His Hearts of Hearts Wants The Islanders To Stay On Long Island

Garry Bettman was a guest on Mike Francesa show today and one of the topic discussed was the Islanders future.  Bettman believes and wants the Islanders to stay on Long Island. I will add the link here when its available, so you can listen to him yourself. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/audio-on-demand/mike-francesa-1/

Three Points:

1) Bettman stated that the Islanders would need approval from the Rangers to move to Queens (I am positive he is wrong)

2) No mention of Brooklyn

3) He does mention Suffolk as a possible option.

Additional Reading:
This articles shows that the Islanders can play in Brooklyn or Queens without approval from the Rangers. http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2010/21/at_islanders_willets_pt_20100520.html
