Low attendance!

When the Islanders were at the Coliseum, they recorded one of the lowest attendance rates in the NHL. If they return to Nassau, will fans start attending more games? The die hard fans maybe but the casual fans will not and history will repeat itself. Attendance rates drive the business.
