Will Long Island lose the Islanders?
Are the Islanders moving?
Is the team's agreement to play an exhibition game in Kansas City in September a sign they'll be leaving their Uniondale home?
Representatives for team owner Charles Wang said yesterday there's no plan to move the team, which reportedly loses more than $20 million a year.
And the developers who, along with Wang, have proposed a massive project around a renovated Nassau Coliseum said yesterday that whether the team stays or goes isn't their concern. They're forging ahead with the Lighthouse Project, which proposes 300 hotel rooms, 200,000 square feet of convention space, 1 million square feet of office space and 2,300 luxury apartments.
Lighthouse project is about more than hockey
Another convention center? Luxury condos in Uniondale? High rises connected by a bridge? The video is unintentionally funny.
