New York Islanders Fan Experience

As mentioned at the top this will be the last year at the Islanders home located in Hempstead New York 40 minutes out side of New York City. This building is very old it looks like a big wear house. At the same time it has what is considered to be good old school grit for a hockey match. The building holds 16,170. The food is neat though it is one of the few places that has true Greek food sold at the games you will also find Meat that is Kosher from a butcher company called Glatt a from New York. It is said that it feels like a fish bowl when your inside the place because it goes down.

New York Islanders Trivia

New York Islanders History

The New York Islanders were established in 1972 as a way for ownership to stop there from being a league like the NHL. The Islanders have won four cups first in 1980,81,82,83 and really havn’t been close since. Hall of Fame defenseman Denis Potvin is one player who Islanders fans can thank for the great play back in 1980’s also there was Glenn "Chico" Resch was really didn’t let anything through in goal. Duane Sutter and Anders also were big names from the time. Since then though front office issues have really hurt the team there was thoughts they wouldn’t ever move with hopes of a project known as Light House project but the offer they got to play in the Barclays Center was too good for the Charles Wang to pass up. Through out the years they have always been looked at as second to the Rangers in adds and in perception and weren’t able to attract the same big players or coaches.

New York Islanders Fan Info

Islander fans are credited with being some of the most loyal fans in the league they are rough and tough and because of the outsiders to the big city concept already described they carry a chip on their shoulders. A lot of the 40 year olds love them because they remember watching them back in the 80s but now attendance is way down this season old school types will come back for special nights and to say good bye to the building but with years of horrible play many people stopped going other than devoted hockey people and you really don’t see a lot of people watching the games in bars as a big must see event.
