New ice arena for NY Islanders

Barclays Center Brooklyn

NY Islanders moved once and they think again about packing their bags and relocate from Barclays Arena, based in Brooklyn, NYC. They keep dreaming about new hockey arena next to Citi Field in Flushing and the change of the owner is cited as a reason but the talks about moving is apparently couple months old. The Islanders cooperate with Mets. The Islanders claim that Barclays new arena is too small for NHL scale. There were problems with the quality of ice as well as train connection for the fans. The attendance was around 13.000 per a game. Max attendance is 18.000.
