I really can't see the Iles leaving NVMC without playing one more year to celebrate the years they spent there, cumlating with a final game at the old barn.
I can see how it'll play out now.
Hofstra will foot half the bill for the new arena.
There will be a vote for a bond (or whatever) for the other half of the bill and this time it'll pass because (the uninformed populous) will think they are replacing the arena the Isles owned with a new one for the county as opposed to replacing the county owned arena.
Hofstra could use it for basketball, graduation, and other indoor events.
The SoundTigers could move...
And a 10,000 seat arena will still be viable for Disney on Ice and other events (I think)
To get some ideas of what a smaller arena looks like: Here are few photos of a 10,000 seat arena.
Here's a 7,000 seat arena and a 7,000 seat proposal:
And then other the bio-tech and whatever facilities will be there, or not, or another stupid strip mall.
