Ratner, not surprisingly, spoke glowingly about the debut year of Barclays Center. He also addressed the arrival of the Islanders to Barclays Center in '15. While Ratner would not discuss rumors that the club would be leaving Nassau Coliseum a year earlier, he said Islanders Owner Charles Wang made a "heroic decision" to move to Brooklyn as opposed to leaving the N.Y. area altogether.
