The New York Islanders will play 60 games over the next three years at Nassau Coliseum. Yesterday, they let potential ticket holders tour.

One of the few positives from 2017-2018 was the New York Islanders landing their forever home. Soon, the Islanders will be playing in a brand new arena at Belmont Park, a perfect location for the team.

With that, the Islanders will play 60 home games, over the next few years, at Nassau Coliseum while their new place is being built. Yesterday, NVMC let potential season ticket holders tour the arena.

Apparently, fans are being offered a 16 game package. It includes all 13 games at the Coliseum and three games in Brooklyn. It’s the best of both worlds, fans get to go to their preferred arena and also get three games at the Islanders other home.

For some fans, the Barclays Center was never an option. They were waiting for their team to come home and they got their wish, to an extent, in 2018-2019.

Expect each of the Nassau games they play to be a sellout. Remember, the capacity is just 13,900 now as opposed to 16,000. Packing that place out could give the Islanders a real home ice advantage, something they missed in Brooklyn.

Editorials: Islanders should target Mat Dumba

If New York Islanders GM Garth Snow is serious about turning this team into a Stanley Cup contender, he should look to trade for Minnesota Wild’s Mat Dumba. He won’t bring the Cup to Long Island on his own, but it’s a good and smart start.
