Developer Bruce Ratner has scored a major goal by landing the Islanders ice hockey team for his Barclay's arena in downtown Brooklyn, sources said.

The announcement was expected at a press conference this afternoon with Ratner, Mayor Bloomberg, Islanders owner Charles Wang, National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz.

I think this is a positive move for the Islanders franchise... I wonder what the length of the lease is though, as apparently the Barclay Center only holds 14,500 for hockey. That's not good enough in a New York market.

Does this help Wang market the team to prospective buyers? He's still not going to get his $300 million asking price.
