I was wondering...What happens if the Rangers or Knicks go deep into the playoffs (June) and construction of phase 2 wouldn't be able to start until after that?

Another long road trip to start the season I would assume.

Biggest issue is the Knicks because if they go all the way (LOL), the NBA Final this year doesn't end until amost July due to the lockout. I read on here that MSG needs at least a 20 week shut down period so you can do the math from there.

EDIT - Post below me says 17, thought I read 20. It's something like that lol

Construction window is 17 weeks. They did a lot more this past summer than originally planned because they had more time. The main consideration will be the seating bowl. Still a lot of work ongoing.

And if the Rangers play into June (the Knicks, c'mon!) I'll gladly sweat a long road trip to start the season.

According to my rep, if either team makes the conference finals it could make things difficult for the construction/contracting company. However, they are contractually obigated to be ready to go for the Rangers home season to start in late October. If they don't get it done, they take a huge financial hit as per the contract with MSG. Basically, they just have to figure out a way to get it done. If it means taking on more staff or increased overtime, they need to do it.

I don't think they had the same number of workers during the overnight shift as during the day. Perhaps there is room to add more crews. Obviously at some point it becomes a safety issue...and even beyond that you simply can't start working on some items until the previous one is done. But I'm sure they'll find a way to get it finished on time.
