It will. It will be a better arena. More importantly it will be home. The LIRR thing isn't a big deal. Most people will drive anyway. That is one of the problems with Barclay's. You are almost forced to take mass transit to get there.

Yep! Fans have every right to complain and not show up if the team is lousy and Barclay's was not a good option for most Isles fans. Just seems crazy if fans start complaining about Belmont.

I really think the option to drive OR take the LIRR will, at least somewhat, mitigate the overloading of either mode of transportation. Obviously it's not going to be perfect. The CIP is a nightmare and stuffing a games-worth of fans onto only two trains will be tough, but I think they'll figure it out eventually and I'm happy to wait it out while they do.

I don't think anyone is complaining about Belmont.

I saw that yesterday

I guess his dickwad agent Allan Walsh isn't going to claim he's going to get "actual playing time" with Boston anytime soon

I still kinda wish they gave him a look just out of pure curiosity. But whatever, he's gone and who cares.

In the preseason games I did see him in, he looked slow, unsure and a step behind the quicker NHL game.

Yeah I'm not about to start whining. If I don't feel like taking the train I will pull up my big boy pants and just not drink like a savage at the games.

Or reach in your wallet and take an Uber or get a room at the onsite hotel. Lots of options all of which are better than Barclays center.

Get one of those self driving cars and drink all the way there and all the way home.

If he'd have reported to Bport, he probably would have been called up when Cizikas got hurt. But he didn't want to be play in the AHL and be stuck behind other players, so instead he refused to report and...ended up playing in the AHL and getting stuck behind other players for a different team.

That's true.. but my fear is the Cross island will look like the Van wyck on thanksgiving every game. Still hoping they make the LIRR an option that doesn't require a change at Jamaica. That would make the whole thing work a lot better.

edit: I have no clue why this is all bold.

Not sure how this is even a possibility. The tracks only lead to Jamaica. Laying new tracks is financially prohibitive, so you'll have to go through Jamaica. Since people will then head in multiple directions from Jamaica (Long Island South Shore, North Shore, Manhattan, Brooklyn), changing trains seems like the only practical approach.

The good news is that it's a short ride from Jamaica to Belmont (compared to say, Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn).
