09:11 AM ET 08.17 | Despite NHL commissioner Gary Bettman's wish that the New York Islanders leave for Brooklyn after the 2013-14 NHL season, one year earlier than their move to the Barclays Center was originally planned, it doesn't sound like that's going to happen. "It's highly unlikely," said developer Bruce Ratner Friday, one day after his group won the bid to renovate Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, the soon-to-be-former home of the Isles.

Wait, they're renovating Nassau Coliseum?

So why the hell are they moving?

It'll take more than a contractor to get Garth Snow to leave.

We shouldn't need to hear anyting about Buttman until after the next season starts......and then we still don't need to be hearing about him...
