Will either club leave that second-rate sports station that they have to share with each other, don't even think about it when the Rangers conflict with the Knicks, and come to SNY?

I think it would be a great chance for the Islanders, trying to get a new arena or at worst a much needed face-lift to their Coliseum, to get some revenue which is something the Devils don't worry about too much now with their new arena in the fold. Plus it would be synergetic for Howie Rose to be on SNY, the home of the Mets.

I believe, and somebody correct me if I'm wrong, that MSG owns the cable rights to the Rangers, Islanders, Devils, AND Sabres for a fairly long term. Don't see them parting way with any of that without the teams forking over a ton of money...

I think the Islanders are free to go anywhere they want. The Devils and Rangers are tied in and Buffalo I am not sure about.

I don't know the specifics on the cable deals, but Cablevision, which begat Sportschannel (now FSNY) is a Long Island-based company.

IIRC, the Isles have always been on the channel, which is owned by the Dolans through Cablevision. Even though MSG Network was lauded for its production quality in the pre-Dolan days, it was swallowed up into the Cablevision empire when the Dolans bought the Garden.

The Sabres used to be part of Adelphia Communications and served as the marquee team on the Empire Sports Network upstate (the Sabres were sort of like the Yankees are to YES or the Mets are to SNY).

When the Rigas family, which owned Adelphia got into trouble with the Feds, the Sabres were cut adrift and MSG Network took over Empire's territory.
