Report: Islanders, Barclays Center exploring out-clause options

Report: Islanders, Barclays Center exploring out-clause options

(Championspk )The New York Islanders have only been playing at Barclays Center in Brooklyn since the fall, but both parties are reportedly already exploring ways to sever that relationship. According to a report in the New York Post, the 25-year lease between Isles owner Charles Wang and the arena contains an out clause that kicks in after the fourth NHL season. The Post is reporting “both sides are secretly exploring ways to cut ties or modify the existing terms of their lease.”

“I don’t think either side ever believed the full lease would be honored,” a source told the Post. “I just didn’t think we’d be talking about this the first year in.” The Islanders moved to Barclays Center – home of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets – in time for the 2015-16 season after 43 years at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island. Citing obstructed-view seating, more expensive tickets, altering longstanding traditions (like jersey colors), the Post notes Isles fans have been frustrated with the move. The Islanders are averaging 13,424 fans per game, 28th in the league. Barclays Center seats 15,795 for hockey — including about 1,500 with obstructed views featuring discounted pricing. However, the team is 19-8-4 at Barclays Center. Only Chicago, the New York Rangers, Washington and Dallas have more wins on home ice. The Post provided two possible alternatives for the Islanders. One is moving them to a new arena in Queens. The other is moving back them to Nassau Coliseum, which is expected to undergo a $260-million renovation next year under the guidance of Nets and Barclays Center owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Once renovations are complete, the Coliseum will seat roughly 13,000 spectators. The Islanders averaged 15,334 fans per game there last season.

Young Blues fan makes heartwarming gesture, gifts Tarasenko stick to another youngster

Young Blues fan makes heartwarming gesture, gifts Tarasenko stick to another youngster

(Champiospk )Every young fan at a hockey game thinks of the moment a puck comes sailing into the crowd and they make a great grab to take home a souvenir. That’s a moment that kid will never forget. So imagine instead of a puck, it’s a stick, and instead of catching the stick, he or she is handed it by one of the best players on the home team. That’s exactly what happened in St. Louis this past weekend, as post-game a young fan leaned over the railing and held his hands out only for Vladimir Tarasenko, arguably the best Blues player, to hand off his stick as a souvenir.

The young fan who snatched it up and was ready to leave, but instead of taking off with his newfound treasure, the young man, who was wearing a Jori Lehtera jersey, spotted a youngster in a Tarasenko jersey and did the selfless thing: he walked back down the stairs, up to the kid and passed off Tarasenko’s stick

The story doesn’t end there, though. The Blues caught wind of the young fan’s gesture and took to their Twitter account to seek him out. “Anyone know the young fan in the (Lehtera) jersey?” the Blues asked via Twitter. “We’d like to reward him for his nice gesture.” In less than a day, the Blues had located the fan and contacted his family. What exactly the team did for the youngster isn’t known, but we’re sure St. Louis took care of him. It’s nice to see the Blues rewarding him, too, because after giving away a prize like that from Tarasenko in order to make another young fan’s wish come true, he deserves everything that comes his way.
