What Does a Handshake Agreement Really Mean?
What does a handshake agreement really mean between the Islanders and Rangers? According to Randi Marshall the Islanders and Rangers have an agreement if the Islanders decides to move to Brooklyn. However, one statement she made, which seems wrong is that it would require a money exchange. The problem with that is that the Islanders already paid the Rangers in 1986 to add Queens and Brooklyn to their territory. Therefore, the Rangers lost all their legal standing to block the Isles move to Brooklyn or Queens since then. So its nice the the Rangers are okay that the Islanders have received the Rangers blessing if they decide to move to Brooklyn, but they couldn't do anything about it if they wanted to.
