Money Needed For Nassau Coliseum

from Candice Ferrette, Jim Baumbach and Robert Brodsky of Newsday,

NYCB Live's Nassau Coliseum will shutter its doors indefinitely as the arena’s billionaire owner seeks investors to resume operations of the 13,000-seat venue and assume the remaining debt, a Nassau County spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday.

The stunning development by Mikhail Prokhorov’s Onexim Sports and Entertainment, which operates the Coliseum through a lease from the county, comes three months after the arena, along with all other sports and concert venues across the state, closed amid the COVID pandemic.

"While we still believe in the enormous long term economic value of the Coliseum and the development of the surrounding land, NEC recognizes that such value will be best realized by other parties," according to a statement from Prokhorov's spokeswoman. "Accordingly, NEC has engaged with Nassau County, other important stakeholders, and potential investors to find the right party or parties to take over operations of the Coliseum. We cannot predict or control the actions of other interested stakeholders.

Lou Lamoriello On Ending The Pause

from Andrew Gross of Newsday,

"I still feel the same way I did when we spoke,” the Islanders president and general manager told Newsday on Friday, referring to an interview on April 2 when he said, “I’m extremely optimistic that we will play at some time as far as this season.”

“In fact, I might feel even better,” Lamoriello added on Friday....

“It’s great to see the country starting to open up, yet cautiously opening up,” Lamoriello said. “I believe we need sports.”

But Lamoriello understands there will be restrictions even if play resumes.

“Will we play in front of crowds?” Lamoriello said. “I do not feel that we’ll be doing that. But I think there will be a chance, through television, to get people watching."

Lou Lamoriello Believes There Will Be Hockey This Season

from Andrew Gross of Newsday,

The uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic has left Islanders president and general manager Lou Lamoriello juggling many different plans for best positioning his team when the NHL season restarts.

That’s when, not if.

“I’m extremely optimistic that we will play at some time as far as this season,” Lamoriello told Newsday on Thursday. “Whether it’s in June, whether it’s in July, whether it’s in August, I’m not thinking about that. I’m just thinking, in my mind, knowing that we will play and using this time to get ready for that.

“But, prior to that, the most important thing is everyone staying safe and everyone doing the things in the best interest of their families because we’re in a different world today,” Lamoriello added.

Back To Long Island

from Randi F. Marshall of Newsday.

Multiple sources told The Point on Friday that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is expected to head to Nassau Coliseum Saturday afternoon before the New York Islanders’ 1 p.m. home game against the Boston Bruins.

But he won’t be there just to watch a hockey game.

Instead, Cuomo is expected to come to the arena to announce before the game that the Islanders will play any playoff games this year and next year, along with their entire home schedule for the 2020-2021 season, at the Coliseum.

Next season is expected to be the Islanders’ last before they head to Belmont Park, where a new arena is under construction.
