But now, with an Aug. 1 referendum looming for a new Nassau County arena for the Islanders, I’m just wondering how youse guys feel.
I mean, the rivalry sure isn’t what it once was … not nearly that, and part of the reason is that both teams have been so lousy for so long (the Islanders lousier for longer, I grant you).
But, would you rather see the Islanders fall off the face of the Earth, or at least the face of Long Island, and move somewhere far away, maybe into a different division in a different conference?
Or would you want them to stay around and be the Rangers’ rival, to whatever level the rivalry remains or increases? Do you want to see Rangers-Islanders several times a season, or once or twice?
Just wondering. Also, new poll right over there ——>
