Bill Daly is Intrigued by Brooklyn
Newsday's recent article on the Islanders and Brooklyn had some positive and less positive news on Brooklyn. Let's start with the less positive, only 7,000 tickets have been sold for the October 2nd at the Barclays Center. However, like the article has mentioned the Barclays Center hasn't aggressively marketed the game yet. Another issue that might be effecting ticket sales is the labor disputes that will most likely cancel the game.
Now on to the positive news on Brooklyn, deputy commissioner of the NHL was quoted as saying "a potential move by the Islanders to Atlantic Avenue remains "an intriguing possibility." This statement is the most positive one the league has made by the league yet.
