That's what I'm concerned about as well. The advantage I see is that the Isles probably can average 13000 a night minimum without giving away tickets or offering deep discounts.

Wonder where the Isles will end up after 2040. Will the Barclays go through a major renovation to accommodate hockey, or will the Isles move elsewhere? I hope the Isles stay in the New York City side of Long Island.
