Prokhorov has said that it could host hockey games...the question is what the seating capacity would be.

If it were tp happen, it would be a gas...I live on the opposite side of Brooklyn from the arena and it's a short train ride.

The appeal for this game though would be in southern Brooklyn where there is a large Russian enclave.

As for moving the Whale to Barclays---it might actually be a good idea to have the NHL and AHL teams in the same city to save costs so that callups are easier and cheaper (Toronto does it, and Philly did it until the Spectrum was demolished).
