Right from the Forbes write up
The value of the Islanders increased 4% over last year due to the team moving from the antiquated Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum to the new Barclcays Arena for the 2015 season.
Honestly i don't think the move makes the needle move all that much, adding $100M would put the value of the team at $250M. That would mean being more valuable than Devs, Wild, Sens, Oilers, Flames. It puts them in the realm of the Caps and right behind the Kings and the Pens.
Lets see what the one ice product looks like. IMO the barn was only half the problem. 2+ big names (that actually make difference) will see the value of the team increase more substantially.
