Isles Still Searching For Their Forever Home

It feels like we have been here before, recently. Actually we have. The New York Islanders are once again looking for a new place to call home. After leaving the outdated Nassau Coliseum, they tried to settle into an NBA arena with NBA sight-lines and a poor ice plant. Many people, including this site, correctly predicted this would not be a good fit. Barclays Center is reportedly trying to sever ties with the Islanders which means after two years, the team would be free (and forced) to find a new arena to play in.

The obvious option that many fans are pulling for is a return to Nassau County to play in the newly renovated Nassau Coliseum. This move would present several challenges including a limited seating capacity and a limited number of luxury boxes. Still, die-hard Isles fans are hopeful that their team might return home in the near future.

With that said, one of our followers (Antonio C) has come up with a very likely concept for center ice should the team move back.
