I doubt it happens. The building was extremely costly....the retrofit will cost even more, potentially, and this is with it ALREADY OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

I doubt it will ever be addressed.....so enjoy the horseshoe. Or hope a Russian billionaire wants to spend MAJOR money to have 24/7 crews make it work for our last place team. (maybe if he buys the team it gets done, in other words)

Can he go crazy with boxes to pick up the shortfall? If they do become a good team and make the playoffs past round one he will sell everything out, and those would be big money.

We don't have real team or organziation yet but maybe in a few years time. Being in Brooklyn and in a spanking new arena means that free agents can no longer use the arena or location as an excuse for not signing here. It's purely down to on ice performance now so the pressure has been shifted tremendously onto the GM and players.
