Did Arctic Ice Melt change Sandy's direction?

Did Arctic Ice Melt change Sandy's direction?

Cornell and Rutgers scientists argue that "all the observations are consistent with such an interpretation."

They conclude that it is plausible that the unprecedented arctic ice melt this year caused the jet stream to block the normal northeasterly path of an October hurricane forcing it to take a left hand turn and head for New York and New England. 

If this is true - one has to wonder if we can expect more October hurricanes to take a left at New York or Boston.
