Barclays really isn't ideal for hockey but prior to this Ratner said when courting the Islanders that it might be possible to renovate the arena slightly. Will still have one of the lowest capacities in the league but realistically the Islanders should be aiming for 14k attendance anyway.

I'm originally from Nassau County, the first hockey game I ever went to was Isles vs Habs at the Colosseum, Brooklyn is a challenge but Nassau deserves this, there's a reason I left that place as soon as I was able to. Queens would have been ideal since Brooklyn is traditionally a Rangers market without the hockey appeal that basketball had for the Nets, but this should help the league long term.

Now time to move Phoenix.
