Season is done in my mind. Shame...but its one year closer to the Islanders being in Brooklyn (and yes, i will switch allegiances if that happens).

Sorry, a 5 minute train ride to watch a team from my hometown is enough (plus the Rangers moved my dad's seats after almost 40 years in the same spot due to the reno, farther from the ice, off center ice, and are charging him 25% more. I've been growing frustrated with Ranger pricing for a long time...the ability to afford season tickets again is too big of a draw for me...Brooklyn Americans?

Does that mean you'll become NewYorkIslander? BrooklynAmerican?

Think of all the woes you'll inherit... Lundqvist-->DiPietro/Nabokov. Nash/Richards/Staal--> Tavares, um... Moulson, and, uh... Streit? Oh yeah, Grabner. Eesh.. Tavares is the biggest bargain contract in the league, unfortunately DiPietro kinda cancels that out. lol.

Time to bandwagon the fuck out of my hometown OHL team. New job is 5 minutes walk from their arena so I might have to start watching. They did make it to within 1 goal of the Memorial Cup last year...

Its the commute thats the biggest draw...10 minute hop on the train, plus if they come and do lots of community stuff like the Nets, no way I'd be able to root against them...BrooklynAmerican sounds good to me!

BTW, just watched "Goon". Just as good, if not better than Slapshot. What a great hockey movie, and so underrated.

Is it even possible when Barclay's only seats 14,500 for hockey?

They'd find a way to get a few more in there for hockey...I don't think the Coliseum seats much more than that...

16, 234 is the capacity now and when the building opened it seated 14,500...would be a lateral move in terms of seating capacity but I bet the Isles will do a lot better in Bk. They have 4-5000 people at some home games.

No to mention a seat at a Jets game will cost you considerably more than it will to go see the Islanders play. Pretty sure the Jets are sold out until the end days are upon us.

Islanders to Brooklyn would be a very good move as anything Brooklyn would resonate much better with that community. That and with the Nets now there suddenly Brooklyn can regain some of its past glory as a sporting center after the Dodgers left.

What to do with the Devils is the question?

That's a good question. Moving isn't an option though... the arena is a very heavy anchor.
