With all the talk of RFQ's and stuff in Nassau, Brooklyn Nets minority owner and majority owner of the Barclays Development in Brooklyn Bruce Ratner had an interesting quote in a daily news article.
He told the Daily News, "...I am trying like hell to get the Islanders to make Barclays Center their new hockey home."
The group Nassau picks for the RFQ and how things progress immediately after will be pretty telling I think. With things like this, it wouldn't surprise me if things don't go well early on in the negotiations in Nassau if more steam gains from Brooklyn and more serious then we've gotten in the past. Again that's speculation on my part and I have nothing beside intuition to back that up.
