Newsday ran a piece called five questions about the Islanders future. Below is their response about the Islanders' arena situation.
5 And, finally, what's happening with the Islanders' arena situation?http://mobile.newsday.com/inf/infomo;JSESSIONID=EA7AE498F19710F426D7.3221?site=newsday&view=islanders_item&feed:a=newsday_5min&feed:c=islanders&feed:i=1.3635862
There isn't anything new in Nassau County, but once the team reconvenes for training camp in September, lots will be happening elsewhere: The team will be preparing for a preseason game in Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Oct. 2, and shovels will be in the ground in Quebec City for a new arena. The Islanders' Coliseum lease is up in 2015.
Still seems like it is Brooklyn vs. Quebec unless Nassau wakes up and makes one last bid to keep the Isles.
