With the CBA coming in the off-season and an expected drop in season ticket subscriptions, the Islanders yeterday announced a novel idea to get fans both new and old to subscribe to next season. That is, buy seaon tickets for next year at this year’s rates and the first two round of playoffs are FREE. If for some reason the Isles don’t make the playoffs, the next time the Isles make the playoffs, those fans would receive free tickets. And in case fans pay for their tickets and there is a work stoppage, fans will be 100% reimbursed + 2% interest for all missed games.
