Where will #isles practice?
For now, Charles is saying IceWorks in Syosset but IceWorks is a schlep to Brooklyn (although really no more than Greenburgh, NY to MSG)
One possibility: Brooklyn has a facility with 2 ice rinks right off the Belt Parkway: Aviator Sports & Recreation.
There's even an Islander connection there: former Islander owner Steven Gluckstern was part of the original ownership that opened the facility about 7 years ago.
Of course, there's a Ranger connection too. MSG purchased an interest in the facility shortly after it opened.
I don't believe that either connection exists today.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
