You need to take the regular seating capacity totally out of the equation. this isn't 1980 anymore. its all about corporate support. there will be 104 luxury suites and 3000 club seats. both will be more than any other arena out there including the new msg. the nets have already sold all these out. if the islanders do the same, there will be no need to fill the arena to 14,500 capacity because the average cost of a luxury suite in downtown brooklyn which is a few minutes from downtown manhattan will be in the $200,000 to $300,000 per suite range.
if pittsburgh is receiving anywhere between $100,000 to $150,000 for luxury suites at the consol energy center, there is no reason to believe that barclays won't get the $200,000 to $300,000 price tag.
