Great news! Will they now renovate the arena to make it more hospitable to viewing hockey?

This looks almost exactly like what the America West Arena in Phoenix did with their bizarre configuration.

Let's all sent Kate Murray a nice thank you for our new crumbling parking lot. I mean, it won't be too hard to convince another team to move to Long Island, right? Considering how welcoming the Island is to business? Right? Guys?

On another point, could the SoundTigers move to the Coliseum to give Suffolk residents an easier way to see some hockey?

Does this intensify the rivalry with the Rangers or no change?

Hopefully Wang let's Ratner and Prokhorov (sp?) in on the ownership and the Isles will become a financial factor again.

I'm ignorant on NYC geography.

Is Brooklyn on Long Island? I thought it was the north end of Manhattan. Or is that the Bronx?

Brooklyn is the extreme west end if LI. Bronx is North of Manhattan. Harlem is northern Manhattan

The arena seats even less than the MTS Center in Winnipeg. Is this really a good thing?

no change imo, the rivalry has always been crazy, the rivalry only gets better and more intense when both teams are good, the Rags are a SC contender and the Isles are getting more and more competitive.

This is a good point. Ticket prices may be huge.

Think about this:

1. Prokhorov/Ratner constantly troll Knicks/MSG with ads
2. Islanders #1 asset is huge TV rights deal owned by... You got it, MSG.
3. Nets deal is with YES (Yankees).
4. The two arenas are approx. 25 minute trip apart.

So, yeah, baby, it does.

Only prob is that MSG Network is could completely bury our games. I mean, seriously. I hope that they come up with a deal for YES to buy out rights to the Islanders.

Cheers,

Dan-o

They weren't selling out the Nassau Colliseum.

How does Wong ever expect to make money on his hockey team? Hoping Bettman can someday get the HRR split to 95% to the owners and 5% to the players?

It seats 2k more than the Nassau Coliseum. Not to mention that place is an absolute dump.

As far as Long island goes- it has 4 counties: Kings (Brooklyn), Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk. Kings and Queens are 2 of the 5 boroughs of New York City.

14,000 seats as per Renaud Lavoie, that can't be a long-term solution.
