Yea great news for the stability of that franchise, Nassau arena was such a dump and a joke. The Barclays arena is located right by a huge transportation hub easily accessible by subway so that will help draw crowds, it's also only about 40min drive from their current arena.

Do you think they will change their name as well? The Brooklyn Islanders just doesn't have a good ring to it.

^probably not. Brooklyn is still on Long Island technically.

I'd say it has more to do with being too "emotional" at certain times.

The only incident I remember off the top of my head is this one. Everyone talks about the Salo hit, that was just a bit too low for me. Given that, last year's shanahammer set the tone for a lot of missed calls, or at times, over judgement just to use certain players as an example.
I don't think Marchand hits with the intent to hurt/kill anybody either, he just doesn't think about the repercussions from the 'hits' he throws and that's why so many of them look questionable.

For the Salo clip, you can see Marchand going into the corner to play the puck, sees Salo coming then completely abandons the puck to go low and clip Salo. Sure maybe he was just trying to keep himself from getting pasted into the boards, but he clearly did not think about what would happen to the other guy by the way he went low.

I doubt they change the name Islanders, just too much rich history behind that. I can see Wang making the change to Brooklyn from New York though to capitalize on marketing, hipsters will virtually buy anything with Brooklyn on it over there.

But there really isn't any need, technically Long Island is made up of 4 counties, the borough Brooklyn being one of them and they still are in NY State, so the name NY Islanders still makes sense for a team in Brooklyn.

No new talks happening

DARREN DREGER WITH TSN.CA STAFF

Unless one side has a sudden change of heart, it appears collective bargaining agreement discussions between the NHL and the NHL Players' Association have reached a stalemate.

No meetings are scheduled and it doesn't appear as if there will be any scheduled in the immediate future.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly sees little reason to continue negotiations based on the Players' Association's recent stance.

"They have made it clear to us that they have very little interest in the proposal we made last Tuesday," said Daly. "They also told us they have no intention of making a new proposal. I'm not sure what we would be meeting about."

When asked if the negotiations may slip into a deep freeze, Daly responded in a brief but very telling manner. "I suspect so," he said. "Back to the drawing board. Unfortunate."

NHLPA counsel Steve Fehr responded to the league's comments.

"The league is apparently unwilling to meet," said Fehr. "That is unfortunate, as it is hard to make progress without talking."

Late Tuesday afternoon, the NHLPA conducted a conference call for executive board members and according to a union spokesman, following the call, the players informed the NHL they are willing to meet at any point, without preconditions, to try and reach an agreement.

I heard that the Barclay's arena currently only seats 14,000 for hockey and they will reconfigure it to seat 15,000 once the Islanders move in. Those seem like some incredibly low numbers to me.

The Islanders will be lucky if they even fill half of those seats anyway.

More CBA News

Quote:

TSN.CA STAFF WITH ESPN.COM FILES

The National Hockey League will withdraw its latest CBA proposal to the NHL Players' Association once Thursday's deadline to finalize a new deal passes.

There were no talks held between both sides on Thursday and none have been held since last week's NHL proposal and counter-proposals from the NHLPA.

"When we delivered the proposal last Tuesday, we told them it would be on the table through today," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on ESPN.com Thursday afternoon. "Having not reached agreement through today, I expect that we'll formally notify the union Friday that the proposal is no longer on the table. We're going to take it back internally and figure out where we go from here."

Daly also emphasized that he was not threatening the players in any way, but underlying what the league had already told the the NHLPA last Tuesday when it delivered the proposal.

"This proposal no longer works because it was a proposal to save 82 games," Daly said. "We have to re-think where we are, and what type of season we're looking at, and we have to formulate and construct a proposal that makes sense for the reality of where we are."

NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr was not surprised by the league's statement on withdrawing the offer.

"This is a standard approach, I think it was done in the NBA in the same way," Fehr told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on ESPN.com. "Review the history here: they make a proposal, it's essentially a take it or leave it, we respond on the core economics, they take 10 minutes and say no. They tell all the players if we're agreeable to everything except the Make Whole (provision) including all the stuff that's in there, I can give Gary a telephone call. And then we have made several efforts, including yesterday, to say we're prepared to sit down and negotiate with no pre-conditions. They essentially said No. It takes two to negotiate. They seem to be really good at imposing deadlines and issuing ultimatums and having lockouts. It seems to be something they're well-practised at."

While Daly did not offer specifics, the NHL is expected to cancel games for the rest of November on Friday. The league cancelled regular season games from Oct. 25 throught Nov. 1 last week, wiping out 135 games in total.

"Obviously those decisions are imminent and we're going to have to do what we have to do," he said.

His southern US hockey expansion has made him the BITCH he is. simple. He plays favorites with owners and simply has put the certain teams in terrible economic shape even with the revenue growth over the past 8 years.

The PA, everyone can see their reasoning, and its an ideology to them.

Its gonna be a long long winter

You can debate how much influence Bettman has, but if the owners didn’t want a lockout, there wouldn’t be one, even if he were pushing for it.
