Move the NY Islanders to Queens!

Islanders fans have had enough of the turmoil dealing with the local government in Long Island, most specifically Nassau County and the Town of Hempstead.  We greatly appreciate and respect Charles Wang's commitment to rebuilding the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum to create a "destination point" however, the Islanders and Charles Wang's interests must now come to the forefront. 

Nassau County has had its chance to keep the Isles, yet time after time have played political football and "jerked" the Islanders around from the Lighthouse fiasco, to the latest referendum, from Kate Murray, to Jay Jacobs.  The local municipalities are in this for their own gain and not the public good.

It is now time Charles, to move the franchise to Queens, specifically at the Willets Point Site!  There, the Isles can move to a spot closer to NYC, increasing spotlight on the team as well as having the ability to create a hub similar to the one you desired in the Lighthouse Project.  People of high clout in the Queens area have already come out and expressed deep interest in the Islanders. 

At the very least, talk to them and make an educated decision for the good of the NY Islanders and its fans!

 

Respectfully,

NY ISLANDERS FANS
