New England Hockey Journal Mention Isles Arena Issue

Stan Fischler wrote a wide ranging article in the New England Hockey Journal.  The piece below is the small part of his article where he talks about the Islanders and their arena issue.
Nassau County (NY) politicians have for years ignored Islanders reasonable requests for help in building a new arena. Now they had better take note of the scoreboard overhanging the Coliseum in Uniondale. On all four sides it proclaims BARCLAYS CENTER and that also appears on the arena’s message board. The message to politicians is clear: not only are the Isles slated to play an exhibition game with the Devils next fall at the new Brooklyn arena, but implicit is the fact that the 14,500-seat (for hockey) building could conceivably be the Isles next home.
