1. New Arena, New Beginning

This one is simple, love it or hate it, we need to say farewell to the past and embrace the future.

That future is now.

I will state the obvious and that is the Barclays Center has arrived.  The arena has already had a positive affect on the team.  Nikolay Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski both said that the move to Brooklyn is what helped them want to come to the Isles.

It is not going to stop there.  With a winning formula and new a shiny digs Nassau Coliseum might just be a distant memory come All-Star break.

So sit tight Islander nation. I realize October can’t come soon enough, but when it does, the boys are going to be ready to make a whole world of noise.
