Does anybody know what other hockey they plan on having there, or is it just sporadic?
They have an ice plant, just like many arena around the world.

There is no (current) ice-using tenant. They may host the traveling ice shows, figure skating events, and perhaps even some hockey tournaments (just as other arenas do).

Who knows, maybe they'll get an ECHL team or college team to player there on a regular basis.

If they are serious about hosting ice hockey at the new arena, they need to tear it down and rebuild it. idiots.

ask Zenith and the Gazprom arena

Anyone know where tickets can be purchased for this event? I see Devils-Islanders tickets for sale at Barclays but nothing for KHL.

You have to meet Uri at the corner of Neptune & Ocean Parkway in Brighton. Bring cash in non sequential serial numbered bills

Bump because I wonder if the lockout goes for a while, the KHL will schedule more games somewhere, anymore in NAmerica in an arena maybe not owned by the NHL (such as that one the Canada Cup Final was in )

The main question is: how much will tickets be? (I live in Brooklyn.)

So, which will be attempted first:
An NHL expansion (Division) in Europe
or
A KHL expansion (Division) in North America
??

They should come this year, pick up some NHL players, and just ... ummm... stay here for now.

Probably a good thing.

Ovechkin and Kovy would have been hazed to no end I bet. In fact, I bet they begged the KHL to cancel it.

Definitely sounds like an internal KHL political thing that caused the cancellation.

Dumb move IMO, they miss a great opportunity, shortsighted indeed.

I wonder if the Isles decision to move in there in a few years played a role in this. As in the KHL was maybe planning on doing this as an annual thing in a neutral location in the middle of NYC, but the announcement that an NHL team would be based there in a few years made that plan moot past a few years from now, so they figured.... why do anything there at all?
