New York Islanders Moving To Brooklyn In 2015
The Barclay's Center in Brooklyn is filling up with tenants at a fast pace as it will be announced today that the New York Islanders will be joining the Nets there in 2015.
The Islanders lease at the Nassau Coliseum is over at the end of the 2014-2015 season and ownership has been looking for some time to find a new permanent home for the club.
In moving to the Barclay's Center, the Islanders will tap into a new fan base that, from the looks of the excitement for the Nets is hungry for franchises and will support whomever is in the city.
But on the other hand, with the lockout still going on, this may not even matter as 2015 looks to be a really long way out for the NHL.
