One new piece of information that came out of the interview was that the business side of the Islanders will be folded into that of the Barclays Center. While GM Garth Snow and the rest of the hockey operations staff will largely remain intact, that will not be the case for other departments such as the advertising sales and ticket sales staff.
This transition will occur not in 2015 or 2014 when the Islanders move to the Barclays Center. Instead it will happen next month in July 2013, according to a source. Many staffers affected by this transition have already left on their own, while some have stuck around to this point.
