A Coliseum with a $165 Million dollar 'face lift' beats Barclays on any given day for putting on hockey & it should be approved ASAP!

When you consider that the Islanders are last in the NHL for attendance (yes even less that the Hurricanes) at under 12,000, a recently renovated arena with a capacity of 13,500 for hockey doesn't seem so bad as a temporary solution.

Islanders co-owner Jon Ledecky said on WFAN on Wednesday morning that he is “confident something will be worked out” regarding playing some games at Nassau Coliseum as the team builds its new arena at Belmont Park.

But Ledecky resisted the idea the Islanders could play full seasons at the Coliseum during the years leading up to the opening of their new home arena.

“If you think about the Coliseum, it doesn’t have the amenities and the things that a third generation arena will have,” Ledecky said. “For example, in that great preseason game, there were still unbelievably long lines for the bathrooms. Concessions are still an issue.”

Ledecky said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was joined by a team of seven senior league officials on the tour of the Coliseum on Tuesday to assess what improvements need to take place in order to host some regular season games.

The meeting and tour of the Coliseum, first reported by Newsday on Tuesday evening, also included Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment CEO Brett Yormark and Nassau County Executive Laura Curran.

The Coliseum, which opened last March following an 18-month, $165-million renovation, is owned by the county and operated by Nassau Events Center, a subsidiary of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. Its new capacity is 13,900 for hockey.

Ledecky said league officials were looking at the ice-making plants and television capabilities, among other issues. “This is in the hands of the National Hockey League, which has to make an assessment of any arena in which games are played in,” Ledecky said.

Too funny. I'm willing to bet the redevelopment of Seattle's KeyArena won't get done until 2022.

Delays, delays, delays.

Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment operates both Barclays Center in Brooklyn and Nassau Coliseum on Long Island.
I would think that if Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment operates both, then they from a business point will schedule all home games to be played at the Coliseum. Reason being using common sense is that Islander fans (who love their cars) will only go to the games on the Island where they can drive up to & park in front of.

Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment will come to their senses when they realize that Barclays will be mostly empty on nights when games are played there. They'd rather fill the arena with concerts anyway on all those nights that they complain about losing money on when the Islanders are playing!

The Islanders have agreed to a deal that calls for them to split their regular-season home games between Nassau Coliseum and Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in the years leading up to the opening of their new arena at Belmont Park, sources said.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is expected to attend a news conference Monday at the team’s former home arena in Uniondale to announce the unusual setup effectively giving the NHL team two home arenas for at least three seasons.

Sources said the Islanders will play 12 regular-season home games at Nassau Coliseum next season and — if all goes well with that experience — they will play at least half of their home schedule in the remaining years there before their Belmont arena opens.

The earliest the Islanders’ new arena at Belmont is expected to be ready is for the 2021-22 season, meaning the team needs a home for three seasons.

The 20 Freshest (And Refreshed) Venues To Watch In 2018

NYCB LIVE, HOME OF THE NASSAU VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM
Uniondale, N.Y.
Concert capacity: 15,000

Mike Lawrence
JAY-Z brought his 4:44 Tour to NYCB Live, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, last December.

Billy Joel, Barbra Streisand, Paul McCartney and Metallica are among those who have played NYCB Live since the Nassau Coliseum reopened in April 2017 after a two-year, $165 million renovation by Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment (which also operates Brooklyn’s Barclays Center). The work included a striking new exterior, enhanced services and concessions for fans and exclusive backstage artist quarters featuring a residential-style suite, wellness room, fitness center, living room and a promoter’s lounge.

Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment was awarded a $6M state grant to help fund an $8.5M project to bring Nassau Coliseum "into NHL compliance" for Islanders games, according to Jim Baumbach of NEWSDAY. The Islanders will provide the remaining $2.5M to upgrade their former arena...
Article is behind a paywell but we get the gist of it...

So apparently the sale of Barclays Center and the Nets to Joe Tsai does not include the master lease to the Coliseum, as that would require action from the county government. The Nets' G-League team, which Tsai does get as part of the ownership of the parent club, is still playing there. I still think the Isles move their farm team, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, there after they move to Belmont, leaving Bridgeport's still relatively new and nice arena for the Rangers farm team, who have wanted out of the well outdated XL Center in Hartford for some time.

Also, at the groundbreaking of the Belmont arena today, the Isles announced that seven additional games originally scheduled for Barclays are going to be played at Nassau instead, meaning that for the 2019–20 season the Isles are playing 28 of their home games (over 2/3) at Nassau Coliseum. Funny how it's really their main home again.

The Jets are co-owners of MetLife Stadium. They’re not going to seek another stadium for a long time.

I havent had a chance to really check which is what days of the week, but I think that's somewhat the idea. That said, weekend nights are often Nets games or concerts (the building's real moneymaker) so maybe not.

Haven't been there since the farce of a renovation a few years ago. So many mistakes were made over the years.
