Tell Us: Islanders Returning; Do You Care?

Abbreviated season will be among team's last in Nassau County.

The Islanders are conducting open practices this week in anticipation of a lockout-shortened season that will consist of about 50 games.

And it will be one of the last seasons in Nassau County: The NHL team is expected to move to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn after the 2014-15 season.

At this late date in the hockey season, we're wondering, do you even care? Syosset is a hub of Islanders action at Iceworks, so what impact will it have on the center? Will Islanders' hockey will disappear from Long Island's consciousness or will the team's fans follow them to Brooklyn?

Tell us in the comments.

I'm not much of a hockey fan, but I'm sure many young kids who are into hockey get a charge out of seeing the team practice at Ice Works right here in Syosset. Anything that brings that kind of energy to our neighborhood is OK with me. I'm sorry to see them go.
