Barclays likely not going to continue the relationship, as they can make more money hosting concerts and other events. No surprise, Islanders attendance is once again among the worst in the league. (In fairness, no thanks to the facility either.)

Great logo, Eddie. I'm gonna show it to some Isles fans to bust their balls.

They'll be back at the old Mausoleum if the NHL approves it. It only holds about 14k now, but that will be enough for their "fans" anyway.

Good news for the Islanders, this is the only way they can manage to be above 90% stadium capacity.

Hartford politicians make an informal pitch for Islanders:

http://www.wfsb.com/story/34421877/connecticut-making-a-play-for-th...


Malloy went on to say that the state is "willing to work with private partners to develop the building you would be proud to call home and to adjust our development plans to the needs of your club and fans.”

The Hartford-New Haven television market is the largest in the country without a professional team from the major four sports.




Which actually would be kind of cool!

Except it would displace the Wolf Pack.

The owners of the Coliseum have changed their plan according to the news today; they will not be getting an AHL team to play there. Leaving the path open for the Isles to return there.

The most logical and pathetic way to end this. That sh!tty team and those sh!tty fans deserve each other.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will propose spending $250 million for a major renovation of the city's aging XL Center — half of it over the next two years — as he seeks to woo a major league hockey team back to Hartford.

Malloy's budget chief confirmed Monday that the governor's two-year capital plan — to be unveiled Wednesday along with the state's proposed operating budget will include $50 million in 2018 and $75 million in 2019

The $250 million renovation — including the addition of a second concourse — would be key to attracting any NHL franchise to Hartford, absent since the Hartford Whalers left in 1997. Renovations, however, do not guarantee that a major league franchise will choose the XL Center

On Friday, Malloy said he and Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin reached out to the New York Islanders asking the NHL team to consider moving to the XL Center.

In a press conference Monday, Malloy said he spoke with the NHL's commissioner several months ago about the renovation plans for the XL Center. The call was prompted by the state picking up on tensions between the Islanders and the Brooklyn arena where the team now plays, the Barclays Center.

"I'm going to send another letter to the commissioners spelling out what we think would be appropriate in the modernization of that facility so he may have an understanding of what we are trying to do," Malloy said. "Listen, this is a long shot, but if you don't reach out and if you're not in the discussion, then you can't be considered."

Malloy said he has pursued the return of major league hockey to Hartford throughout his administration. The governor said he's talked with "individuals or groups of individuals who were in the process or hoped to be in the process of acquiring teams."

Malloy said an NHL team would not disrupt the Wolf Pack, Hockey East or UConn schedules.
