So, there was this team. They played on Long Island for a while. They were really bad at first, then quickly became very good. Then VERY GOOD. Then less so. Then MUCH less so.
There was a brief renewal, but it essentially peaked in a playoff series with the Leafs before fading into annual five-game first-round losses, then nothing.
Before long, they said they'd move to Brooklyn. What the hey, it beats Markham.
