While there has been no movement between the Islanders and Nassau County on a new or refurbished arena, and a clear message has been sent that the team is not presently for sale, more possible routes could open if Brooklyn, Suffolk County or Queens were to make guarantees.
In fact, when asked about the lack of chatter since Aug. 1′s failed referendum vote and how now the county is now looking for developers, a source in Executive Ed Mangano’s administration said, "It will be a small miracle if they can even get it off the ground and keep the team here. I really believe the Isles are going to Brooklyn, barring divine intervention."
Well, it seems the Islanders have that same idea as they are exploring some options as they bide their time until the lease term ends.
