The Islanders are set to move to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn when their lease expires at the end of next season, the 2014-15 season. But, for a time, they bounced around the idea of skipping town a year early according to a report in yesterday’s Newsday.
Deputy County Executive Rob Walker told Newsday that discussions never got to the County level. So, there will be one more go-around at the Old Barn on Hempstead Turnpike.
In April 2013, Point Blank reported that the Islanders were considering the possibility of leaving Nassau a year earlier than their lease required.
