You're right it feels longer. And moving the Islanders to Hartford would make a ton of sense.

Agreed, but aren't the Islanders playing in Barclay's Center now? How long is that lease for?

They're in Barclays for now, but the situation isn't working out (not a surprise). The team has the chance to back out of the lease after next season and Barclays can back out the season after. Barclays put together a proposal for investors and didn't include revenue from the Islanders after the 2018-19 season.
