According to WFAN 660 radio in NY the Islanders are in talks to play a pre season game next fall in Brooklyn at the new Barclays Center which opens next fall for the Nets.
To me, this smells of 2009 when the Isles played the game in KC! That was a major flop though as it did nothing! Hopefully they are able to leverage this so it actually like means something or something along those lines. Vague and baseless threats are getting old in this process! Its about time something like legitimate and meaningful gets done.
It certainly is nice to see that they are doing this though!!
It should certainly be interesting to watch this play out over the next few months, especially since recently Ed Mangano has been quoted as saying he is once again coming up with a development idea for the "hub." Ill believe it when shovels are in the ground, until then I am assuming politics will get in the way once again.
