Hanvt actually been to Islanders arena but having been a member on HFBoards for 3 years I've read and seen picture of how bad it is, so if the Islanders fans thinks it's good, so do I. I'm glad the team will stay in New York as well, would be really sad if they had moved the team elsewhere.

Brooklyn Islanders is a pretty damn sweet name btw.

I'm sure the happiest person in the world right now is John Tavares.

They'd still the the New York Islanders. The Coyotes didn't change their name to the Glendale Coyotes when they moved.

This is a good point. Ticket prices may be huge.
But there is actually demand for Jets tickets in Winnipeg.

Thanks.

I google mapped it and saw it is far closer to NYC than the Nassau Colliseum.

I assume that will have to help ticket sales.

For those from NYC, how easy is transportation from Penn Stn to Barclay's Centre and Nassau? Subway ride? How long?

If I go back to NYC as tourist, I'd definitely check out Islanders games if they're now just a subway ride away.

So, yeah, baby, it does.

Only prob is that MSG Network is could completely bury our games. I mean, seriously. I hope that they come up with a deal for YES to buy out rights to the Islanders.

Hell it'll intensify the rivalry with the Devils too. Lots of NJ transplants (mostly hipsters) in Park Slope/Williamsburg and that immediate area. As far as PATH train/Subway it took me and the GF a half hour to get to Brooklyn for a comedy show a few weeks ago. Will be VERY easy for the Rangers/ Devils/ Isles fans to get to each other's arenas... It will be pretty cool and intense.

Regardless, there's still a team to operate. Once the Isles become good again, the fans will return. Once they do, however, it may be to much larger fees then they're used to.

As far as Long island goes- it has 4 counties: Kings (Brooklyn), Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk. Kings and Queens are 2 of the 5 boroughs of New York City.
And the Nassau was in Queens, right?

How will the die hard Islanders (joke removed) feel about this move? Won't it move their team further away from them if they're in Queens? Is Barclay's easy to get to from Queens?

Brooklyn and Queens are not part of Long Island. They are two of the five boroughs of NYC.

If the Islanders improve by then (I'm sure they will) I could definitely see it intensifying. The Nets move to Brooklyn appears to have re-kindled the rivalry with the Knicks (It does help that they both have some super stars again). Proximity will always help rivalries and they'll play each other plenty. Only a good thing for the rivalry as far as I'm concerned

Yep. I would hope that Wang is smart enough not to lock in long-term and is using it as a pressure tactic to get a new arena of his own.

Winnipeg was stretching it with a 15,000-seat building but the Islanders are taking it to a whole new level: Playing in a basketball-first facility with 14,000-some seats. Tickets are going to have to be sold at some of the highest price points in the league to make this move worth it.

Barclays is right next to the Atlantic Terminal which is a huge hub of transportation in Brooklyn and is accessible by subways. NC is inaccessible by train, which is its biggest flaw. NC is in the center of Nassau County- the two main train lines run about 3-4 miles north of it and 10 miles south of it.

I wonder if the Islanders will be sponsored by American Spirits and Pabst Blue Ribbon

If they pack the house every night and ticket prices aren't set too low, the Isles will be fine in the new arena.

I'm sure they could bring in an engineering firm to bump up hockey seating somehow.

It has been mentioned that if the Isles did commit to Barclay's long term, then alterations could be made to up the seating capacity for hockey. I'm sure that will be discussed heavily after it's official.

Finally, a day to rejoice for my fellow Isles fans!
