<<Political Fallout Could Land the Islanders in Brooklyn
The Business of Sport
By EVAN WEINER
September 21, 2005
The New York Islanders franchise has always been more a topic
for Nassau County politics, cable TV, and real estate than it
has been a sports team competing in a major professional league.
Almost 34 years after the NHL gave Roy Boe an expansion
franchise in Uniondale, not much has changed. Islanders owner
Charles Wang is currently wrangling with Nassau County
politicians to develop land around the Nassau Coliseum and has a
large cable TV security blanket.
But Nassau County politicians shouldn't feel so smug about the
long-term prospects of having an NHL team - not with Nets owner
Bruce Ratner's new Brooklyn arena in the picture. As the
centerpiece of the urban development being proposed for the
Atlantic Yards, Ratner's arena is slated to house the Nets and
other, yet unplanned, sports events. That could mean hockey.

The New York Islanders name and logo will remain when the team relocates to Brooklyn.

This cancels three additional Islander games (10/26 vs Toronto, 10/27 @ Boston and 10/31 vs Ottawa). However, these games would be rescheduled if the NHL and its players can agree on a new CBA within the next week. If so, the Islanders would open the season on November 2nd in Carolina.
Nine Islander games have been canceled at this point (5 at home and 4 on the road). Barring makeups, this leaves 118 games on the Nassau Coliseum
The press release from the League notes: "The cancellation was necessary because of the absence of a Collective
Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players' Association and the NHL" which of course isn't really true. Many sports leagues (and other businesses) have continued operation without a CBA in place.
And so it goes...

"@MunchieCosh: @bookerT2116 is it true that there was on offer that went straight to 50/50 so long as current deals were honored?" Yes
We ask for
50/50 split and to honor existing contracts and Gary says we aren't in
the same ball park yet they claim in their proposal a...
50/50 split and no rollback.......
Sounds like a similar ballpark to me. Everyone
who says we are selfish might want to take a hard look at the owners
1. Isles would be eligible for revenue sharing. (Under the expired CBA, teams in larger television markets were not eligible)
2. Teams would not be eligible to stash players in minors and avoid salary cap hit. Call this the Wade Redden rule, but the Isles would not be at a disadvantage that they have been in the past when compared to teams that are more easily able to bury their mistakes.
However, it's the third point that is the most important:
|NHL Salary||Cap Hit||Bonus|
|Niederreiter, Nino »||$900,000||$2,795,000||$1,925,000|
|Reinhart, Griffin »||$925,000||$3,275,000||$2,350,000|
|Nelson, Brock »||$900,000||$2,825,000||$1,925,000|
|Halmo, Mike »||$742,500||$1,775,000||$1,032,500|
|Nilsson, Anders »||$900,000||$1,750,000||$850,000|
|Strome, Ryan »||$925,000||$1,744,167||$850,000|
|de Haan, Calvin »||$900,000||$1,470,000||$600,000|
Converted a penalty to 5:4 in extra time and two other gates Kevin Saurette sticking out of a homogeneous force out yet.
Ken Latta ordered, in contrast to his notice, to provide back-up John Wiedemann match practice, again the far superior Stefan Vajs into the goal. After just 27 seconds outwitted Louke Oakley NHL goalie DiPietro and took his team 1-0 in front.
