Brooklyn Hockey Fans Perfer An AHL Team?
Today when I was just surfing the web I found this interesting article http://brooklynfans.com/2011/11/hockey-barclays-center/ Hockey at the Barclays Center? Islanders … or who?, which argues that Brooklyn would be better off with a Rangers AHL affiliate then the Islanders. Really??? No matter your feeling on the Islanders or Rangers as a fan if you have a choice of a professional team or minor league team if your running an arena. The difference in revenue alone is huge and there are only 30 cities privileged enough to have a team. If you have a chance to gain one of those teams you just don't turn your back on it. I guess the Islanders and Rangers fans may have a new battle brewing over the Barclays Center.
