2. Nassau Coliseum

Having grown up in New Jersey, I find it somewhat surprising I still have not made a trip out to Long Island to see an Islanders game. Now that I live in Ohio the opportunities are few and far between. However, I am now in a race with time to get out to the old Coliseum, as next season will be the Islanders last there with the impending move to Brooklyn.

Sure the Nassau Coliseum is pretty much a pit these days, but it is a relic to an older time in the NHL. So much history was made in that building in the 80s and it still has some of the best sight lines in hockey. Sure the Barclay’s Center will have all the modern things fans love these days, but it will feature an unconventional seating configuration and a jumbotron situated over one of the blue lines.

I’d rather risk the asbestos exposure and see a game in a real hockey arena, than suffer through horrible sight lines just so I can connect to free WiFi and experience Brooklyn, New York.
