Also curious to know what kind of presence the Isles will have in Bklyn before 2015. Obviously the franchise hasn't been particularly well run over the years, but it's hard for me to imagine they're just going to let this buzz die for the next three years... I'd expect preseason games every season and a lot of work in the community to start building up a fanbase. Is that realistic, Isles fans?
If the NHL is burning the whole season I don't know why the Islanders would play another game at Nassau? Barclay would likely be ready for next September. Wang could just pay what left on Nassau rent and be done with the place. If moving to Barclay will get the Islanders out of the red it a small price to pay to do it two years earlier.
