It would be the first hockey arena of its kind. The community would support a novel idea that keeps the Islanders here and all can watch hockey as it was meant to played... outdoors! College hoops and concerts under the stars would be a regular occurrence and it may reverse the trend of our youth leaving town because there would be an exciting local venue for entertainment... See the link below for some creative ideas as to what a roof over the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center would look like. This should be a spark for novel ideas for the coliseum. http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2012/09/10/sports/tennis/10roof-ss.html
