Would Nets Share Barclays Center With Islanders?

There's new speculation that the Islanders might be considering a move to Barclays Center.  The Daily News reports Brooklyn native Nelson Peltz, an investor on the board of Wendy's and Arby's, is "kicking the tires" on the Islanders who are stuck in the Nassau Coliseum, which now that the IZOD is empty, is viewed as the worst venue in sports.

Peltz's interest in buying the club from Charles Wang sparked speculation about the Islanders moving to his hometown borough and the Barclays Center, where the Nets are set to play in 2012, according to the News.  Barclays spokesman Barry Baum said the teams have not discussed sharing the arena.

The problem with moving a hockey team to Barclays is that it is such a tight basketball-centric bowl. Too many seats would have to be removed to accommodate a hockey pad and attendance would be limited to less than 15,000 and it's doubtful the NHL would approve an arena with that small a capacity.
