    Cool, so they can go back to being irrelevant on LI.

    Winning would solve that. Tavares is key there. Now that he knows they're returning to the island, does he re-sign?

    Belmont park is actually in Queens but the area of the parking lots where the Icelanders will be quietly hiding is just across the Nassau border.

    So is Brooklyn. The issue has been on the ice. The fans do exist (or did). They've just had no real reason to invest.

    Odd that Dolan and MSG are investors in this arena. NHL doesn't view this as a conflict of interest.

    I think the part where they are going to allow the Icelanders to build the NEW MAUSOLEUM for their 3500 fans is on the Nassau side in beautiful scenic Elmont, a place that makes the Devils home in Newark look elegant.

    Good for them. I'm actually glad they are sticking around. Hockey is better when the locals are all good.

    Hate the NY Islanders with a passion, but listening to John Ledecky on WFAN, he comes off as very likeable.

    Compared with Beningno, Adolf Hitler would sound likable

    In an unusual arrangement, the NHL team will split time between the Coliseum and its current home at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for at least three years while a new arena is built at Belmont Park, a source said.

    Gov. Cuomo, team officials, and the NHL are scheduled to make an announcement at the Coliseum on Monday morning.

    Newsday reported the team next season will play 12 regular-season home games at Nassau Coliseum, with the expectation that will grow to half its home games in the remaining seasons before the new arena opens. The rest will be played in Brooklyn.
    Kind of sounds like a logistical nightmare for scheduling purposes and a pain in the ass for the Islander players.

    Definitely interesting to say the least.
    Logistical nightmare indeed.

    JUST MOVE THEM TO SEATTLE

    Why are they trying to force the Islanders to exist?
