Without any real promotion, and despite the strong possibility the game will be canceled because of labor trouble, Barclays Center has sold 7,000 tickets or half the arena capacity for the Islanders-Devils exhibition game on Oct. 2. The response is one more reason arena executives think they can lure the Islanders from Nassau Coliseum.

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly tells Newsday a potential move by the Islanders to Brooklyn remains "an intriguing possibility. But there's a lot of road between here and there." The main issue is limited seating capacity. One end of the arena will have to be closed off because it doesn't afford a view of the whole rink. Arena architects have done sightlines studies for hockey.
