New York Islanders legend Bobby Nystrom is often called "Mr. Islander." A voice of the fan, if you will.
His reaction to the announced sale of the franchise by Charles Wang is, well, a lot like a lot of fans*: Wait and see.
(*Or, at least, how I'd advise fans to proceed with any new boss.)
Not that Nystrom wants the status quo, exactly. But he prefers certain things, and apparently hinted at them in a conversation with News 12's Jamie Stuart:
Just spoke with #Isles legend Bobby Nystrom about ownership changes. Says he wants to see if there will be any front office changes. Cont..— jamie stuart (@N12jamiestuart) August 19, 2014
Like many attached to the franchise's history, he'd prefer they not end up in Brooklyn. (But that's where they're going. That's part of the attraction to new buyers.)
Like many, he's curious if front office changes will be made. (Judging by the two-year transition plan for majority ownership, not likely anytime soon.)
But we'll see. So will Bobby Ny.
