Could the New York Islanders be coming to Queens? According to NY1, Jeff Wilpon, the Mets’ CEO, is in talks with the hockey team’s owner, Charles Wang, to build an arena for the Islanders near the new Citi Field in Willets Point. Wilpon, who said he would consider buying the money-losing Islanders, has also spoken with Major League Soccer about bringing a team to the area, though he’d have to choose one or the other: there isn’t enough room for both a soccer stadium and a hockey arena at the site.
