A feasibility study done for Bruce Ratner states Barclays Center could be "retrofitted" on completion to permit NHL games and adds the Islanders "could potentially become a tenant of the proposed arena." The study is part of the prospectus for arena bonds. It also suggests the Nets will pay $7.5 million a year to lease the arena--three times the rent at IZOD--and naming rights will bring in less money than reported.
