Another Report of our Demise

BD Galloff just wrote an article for WFAN explaining why he thinks it is more likely that the Islanders will be relocating out of New York than staying.  Below is a part of the article and the link so you can read the entire piece. 
More than a year ago an Islanders source warned me that the minority percentage of possible suitors outside of New York would rapidly climb. Eventually, that person said, this idea might even become an even bigger possibility.
I was told this right before the referendum attempt by Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano and Islanders owner Charles Wang blew into pieces due to a recession, politics and the county’s severe growth limitations.
So, now that we are at the end of what has been a long season for hapless fans who have watched their hapless team once again come up short of achieving any real goals, it is also time to really look at the team with correct lenses.
The Islanders may very well be packing their suitcases in a few years.


  1. Well, you gotta admit after the piece on Quebecor and this article which basically recapitulates everything I have been saying for a few years, now, and for a few months to you;
    you may not like what I have to say, but unlike Islanders' ownership, I ain't a liar.

  2. Never called you liar and never said what you were saying was unlikely, but I not going announce the team is dead until its official. Until then I am going hope for Brooklyn, or maybe the Shinnecock and Wang have continue to talk even though their past attempts failed.

  3. What you are calling an article is by a former member of the Islander blog box who turned out to be the NHL Masked Avenger.

    You will get more credible information from sources inside a fortune cookie and that's the kind version of what Gallof represents.

    1. Oh, so he turned on you guys, huh? Good for him.
      You toolboxes should be ashamed.
      Sorry for you, he followed the light and the truth instead of your NYIFC dark lies. Go roast marshmallows on your roof.

  4. Not sure how I missed this... but...

    thanks for the mention. Jon, thanks for the laugh.

    NYIFC: you really need to get over your biased and revisionist look through your back mirror. It's getting very sad.
