Editors Notes: Dips wrote this in August, but since he hates the NHL and hates me, decided this wasn’t important at the time…
So I was on a flight today going to San Diego for work and was seated next to a marketing executive (I’m going to withhold his name) who is very close with the NHL. He was stating that management of the New York Islanders are considering the prospect of moving to Brooklyn. They will be testing out the arena in the preseason with a game against the Devils, after of course a CBA is reached.
Should be interesting considering the Islanders are trying to build a new arena/complex in Uniondale, NY. This will put pressure on Nassau County officials. Again this is a rumor and could be nervous plane chatter.
