    ^ not really. The end that the islanders shoot at 2x sells twice as well as the other end. If this is just a temporary solution (like you think/hope) it won't be a problem at all. Check out where Ottawa started playing:

    They played for 4 seasons without seats above ice level on one side.

    If this is a more long term solution for the islanders I still don't really care. I'm sure most fans would put up with a few missing seats in brooklyn behind one of the goals. The alternative may be a perfect looking hockey arena in Quebec.

    Tampa Bay played the first few years at an old building at the State Fairgrounds just outside tampa. Seating was like 10,000, and more suited to bull riding than hockey. They survived until till they moved to St. Pete.
