According to a recent article in the New York Times, the CEO of the Nets and Barclays Center and newly appointed leader of Islanders ticket sales, suite sales, and marketing Brett Yormark said that upon the Islanders move to Brooklyn the teams name and colors will remain the same.
There had been growing speculation of the Islanders undergoing a re-branding similar to that the Nets went through upon their move from New Jersey to Brooklyn before this past NBA season. The idea gained so much steam that it led to the start of a fan made petition against the idea which garnered over 1,000 signatures in a matter of weeks.

Its refreshing to hear this for me because I was one of the many fans concerned about a re-branding. The only thing that I remain concerned about is the logo. Only mentioned in the article are the name and the colors that wouldn't be touched. The logo wasn't mentioned anywhere. I am not sure if it was lumped in as one or forgotten but the logo on our primary jerseys shouldn't be touched either. That has been tried before and failed miserably.
