Islanders Have Not Approached Ratner About Brooklyn Move

Newsday reports that Charles Wang, owner of the Islanders, hasn't approached Bruce Ratner about moving the Islanders to Brooklyn, and even if he had, the move would be difficult. Beyond the problems with the redesigned, smaller arena floor that doesn't meet NHL regulations, the Islanders would have to rework a territorial rights agreement with the Rangers. That could cost the Islanders millions.
