What about the Devils?
And what about the New Jersey Devils, gone from the Meadowlands to the new Prudential Center in Newark? Only in the opening game and a game against nearby rivals the New York Rangers was there a sellout (17,625).
With attendance averaging 15,241, the Devils are doing slightly better than last year's average attendance of 14,176. That number of course is skewed by the new building and by one game with the Rangers.
But that masks a difference between the two facilities, and a main reason the Devils moved: the Prudential Center has many more luxury suites than the Izod Center. And that's why a Nets move to Brooklyn would be so lucrative: the Barclays Center would have many more suites than both facilities combined. And, of course, there's naming rights.
