New York Islanders Tickets

The New York Islanders biggest news is the move to Brooklyn. This is not an immediate move, but one that has this 2013 NHL season as one of the last at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The move to the Barclays Center is not one that can be faulted. The facility is new and there is certainly more money to be made in Brooklyn than in Uniondale.  In the meantime, the fans that have had New York Islanders tickets have to decide whether to trek to from Long Island to hipster central.

This will likely depend on the development of John Tavares and the rest of the youth movement and the front office’s ability to deal with the awful contract with no-show goalie Rock DiPietro. Tavares, Nino Niederreiter, and Ryan Strome are the first three of the youth movement to represent in the NHL. Tavares became a star last season, Niederreiter is looking to improve upon a less than compelling rookie season, and Strome is most likely going to ride the bench in his first year up from the minors.

DiPietro is simply a catastrophe crippled by injury after injury and forcing fans to endure the performance of Egeni Nabokov. Nabokov is just not starting material, yet he is put in the situation. HE is now a place holder for another young goalie, Kevin Poulin. Poulin is in the minors right now, but could move up to get time as Nabokov’s backup and eventual usurper.

The future is far from dismal for the New York Islanders. The roster and the minors have the talent to carve out a dynasty in a few years. It is just a matter of getting from to then. It is also a matter of getting form Long Island to Brooklyn and trying to keep the fans who have dedicated their winter and springs to following this hockey club, even in the recent rough years.
