I think it's good for the NHL, the Islanders and fans.
I want the Rangers to beat the Islanders every time, just like I want them to beat the Devils. But I don't want either of those teams to leave.
Ticket prices will be higher, as they are for most acitivities in the city. But the reality is that some people are lamenting the loss of something that went away a long time ago.
As for competition between MSG and Barclay's, I don't see it being anything major. MSG traditionally is not hurting for bookings, in fact that's exactly why they could afford to raise their prices. I don't see that changing any time soon. MSG's location, in the center of the world so to speak, will always give it a competitive advantage. I don't think it has to be the only game in town to achieve high profits.
