The pun standards 'round these parts have really decline apparently...
Johnny 'CobraKai' Boychuk takes out Ralph Macchio.
Ralph Macchio’s Crane-Kicking Bobblehead
I'll take Tavares in the 9th race at Belmont.
Report: James Dolan Among Investors Behind Islanders Arena Proposal
Thanks for reminding me to top off my TVG account
Report: Islanders could return to Nassau - Article - TSN
Gary says the Isles could get a new arena close to Belmont Park - Gary likes his new shiny arenas.
Bettman: Isles to submit arena bid at Belmont
I'm thinking just off the backstretch
Well, on the plus side they seem to have an idea.
On the negative side, they're up against the Yankees.
Islanders, NYCFC release Belmont redevelopment plans
Belmont Park selected as winning bid for new Isles arena...
The Islanders’ bid includes an 18,000-seat, year-round arena that would host 150 events annually as well as 435,000-square feet of space for retail, a hotel with 200 to 250 rooms and a 10,000-square foot “innovation center” that would be developed with resident input.
Sources: Isles’ bid picked for Belmont Park
I see no funding proposals...
Do you mean in regards to public money being allocated to the new arena? Yeah, I can't seem to find any info on that either.
Article did say that Cuomo (the governor, not the Weezer guy) will be in attendance so I suppose they have something worked out.
if barclay had been a decent hockey stadium(they have a car in seats on the glass for fucks sake) do you think brooklyn would have worked or is this all on the fan base needing this team in long island. judging by the number of duis given out around nassau in the old days i would have thought the train into barclays wouldve been a godsend.....
Islanders Say New Arena Will Be Privately Financed
Isn't Brooklyn on Long Island?
I think it was about the ownership group wanting a new/full arena that would make the team financially viable with luxury boxes, outside events, etc.
on the actual island yes....but technically queens and brooklyn are part of new york city and nassau county is where "long island" starts.
My wife and her friends are all from NJ/NYC and on more than one occasion I've mentioned that, technically, Brooklyn and Queens are on LI and gotten "wtf are you talking about?!" in response.
Once I ask where the bridge from Brooklyn to Long Island is is where the look of puzzlement and realization shows up (sometimes separated with the question "wait, where is the Throgs Neck?") lol.
Sv%'s since Dec. 1:
Jaro Halak: .904
Thomas Greiss: .835
Isles are 5-11-2 in that span. Goaltending is going to cost them their captain at this rate.
I would trade Monahan + Brodie for Tavares. It likely isn't enough, though.
