Gary Bettman, apparently wistful for the days of the Sutter brothers, Mike Bossy and Bryan Trottier winning four straight Stanley Cups (a period in which Bettman worked for the NBA), opined that the team should remain on Long Island lest they re-locate a half-hour into the biggest city (and media market) in America.

About The Rebel State
We like writing, we like sports a lot, we like talking about sports -- so why not combine all of those likes into one endeavor?
Why are we The Rebel State? It's a nod to Jenn and John's stint in the sports department of The Sacramento Bee, where they were part of a merry band of fun-loving, trash-talking, exceptionally snarky co-workers that occupied a corner of cubicles in the office. That merry band of co-workers lovingly called themselves "The Rebel State."
