Not long ago, the Barclays Center structural engineer noted on its website that the arena would have "an ice floor for hockey". Brett Yormark has told Newsday "we can play hockey there". On Wednesday, when Hunt Construction was named primary contractor for Barclays, there was no mention of any "ice floor" or hockey. Still, Brooklyn's Boro President likes the idea of the "Brooklyn Islanders".
