Great arena... for basketball. Not good at all for hockey, and the smallest in the NHL (smaller even than Winnipeg). The Isles have such crap infrastructure overall, team and practice facilities are garbage, it's really an embarrassment even leaving aside the arena proper.
Chris Bottarga told Hockey Central this move may be temporary, hoping it shocks Nassau County to finally support and expedite the building of a replacement for the Coliseum... Which would explain why the announcement is being made this far in advance of the 2015/16 season.
Will it work? No idea... but I kind of doubt it.
